U.S. vows all-out defense against 'grave' North Korean

Tracy FergusonOct 20, 2016

Currently South Korea relies on USA operated reconnaissance satellites especially when it is about core military information involving North Korea's Nuclear and missile related moves.

Wednesday's establishment of a high-level Extended Deterrence Strategy and Consultation Group is being accompanied by unusually blunt public comments from the US secretaries of defense and state about the possibility of nuclear war initiated by Pyongyang on the Korean peninsula.

Carter also stated South Korea's security is guaranteed owing to the "full spectrum of USA defense capabilities", reaffirming US commitment to extended deterrence on the Korean peninsula.

Neither side has confirmed an invitation to Iran, a key player in the conflict and an ally of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad. The U.N. says more than 100 children have been killed in the campaign, which has also included a limited ground offensive.

While continuing to work for denuclearization, "we need to ensure working together that the DPRK pays a price for its unsafe actions", Kerry said, using an acronym for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

North Korea is prohibited by United Nations sanctions from conducting ballistic missile launches and nuclear missile tests.

Seoul is aiming to boost its indigenous satellite that will permit Seoul to closely monitor military activities in North Korea but is unlikely to have anything on a par with today's USA and Israeli satellites until about 2023.

The U.S. hopes that tighter sanctions can force impoverished North Korea to return to long-stalled negotiations on providing aid in exchange for denuclearization, but there appears to be little prospect of their resumption because of Pyongyang's determination to have nuclear weapons. KAMD is created to detect and destroy incoming missiles and other aerial threats, the military said.

"I don't see why you need B-52s and B-1s on the peninsula". North Korea was not mentioned in the second debate, but was briefly in the first one.

The Korean War drew in Chinese forces supporting the North, while a USA -led United Nations coalition countered the North's invasion of the South.
