Post U.S., South Korea to consider expanded military exercises

U.S., South Korea to consider expanded military exercises
By: Jacob Knutson - AXIOS News - 05-21-22

President Biden and South Korea's new president, Yoon Suk-yeol, signaled Saturday that they will consider enlarged joint military exercises to deter North Korea, which is seeking to expand its nuclear arsenal, AP reports.

Why it matters: North Korea has conducted at least 16 missile launches so far in 2022, including its first intercontinental ballistic missile test since 2017. U.S. officials have also warned that Pyongyang may be on the verge of resuming nuclear weapons tests.

What they're saying: During a press conference after a meeting with Yoon, Biden said the U.S. and South Korea's economic and military relationship shows “our readiness to take on all threats together," according to AP.

* Yoon, who was sworn into office last week, said the alliance “was forged in blood on the battlefield of the Korean War." He stressed the partnership would go beyond addressing security concerns and encompass more technological and industrial agreements.

[The big picture: White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan warned Wednesday that North Korea may conduct a long-range missile or nuclear weapon test during Biden's visit to South Korea, which is a part of his multi-day trip around Asia.]

* U.S. officials have warned that Kim Jong Un’s government has been making preparations at North Korea's underground Punggye-ri nuclear test site. The activity indicates North Korea may be on the verge of resuming underground nuclear weapons testing.

* Despite heightened tensions from its missile tests and nuclear test preparations, Biden again offered North Korea coronavirus vaccines to help the country control a massive outbreak.
Personal note: You would think whats being discussed between the two leaders
(or maybe with others) would be kept between them - and not leaked or given
out to the media?
Any misconceptions could be misconstued - thereby exciting the counter measures
under consideration. The old naval addage - was and still is - Loose Lips Sink Ships!

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
