RT reports today that North Korean state media has condemned a U.S. bombing drill on the Korean peninsula, warning that the move could spark a nuclear war. The editorial, published in state newspaper Rodong Sinmun Sunday, accused the US of “military provocations.” The editorial also stated that the U.S. is “intensely promoting a nuclear war atmosphere in the Korean Peninsula and is pushing the situation to the blast phase.”
The US Air Force sent two B-1 strategic bombers to carry out live-fire tests on a training range in South Korea on Friday. Fighter jets from South Korea and Japan also joined in the drill. The exercise, which targets mock enemy missile launch sites, came three days after North Korea pointedly tested an intercontinental ballistic missile on the 4th of July.
