Korean peninsula may explode any moment
South Korea and the United States launched the 10-day Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) military drills on August 16. Tens of thousands of US and South Korean troops will rehearse the destruction of nuclear weapons of North Korea. A reaction from the North of the Korean peninsula followed shortly. Pyongyang officials stated that the Korean peninsula had never been that close to war as it is now since 1953.
The current exercise will last until August 26 with 56,000 South Korean and 30,000 US troops participating. The latter will arrive from the USA and from the bases in the Pacific region. Officials from seven countries having their representatives in the command of the UN forces on the Korean peninsula will be attending the drills.
