Two US planes hold terminating drills with South Korean powers

Frustrated with NKorea? Welcome to The Land of Lousy Options

"U.S. bombers and Republic of Korea fighters are just two of many lethal military options at our disposal", said Lt. Gen. Thomas Bergeson, U.S. Forces Korea deputy commander.

The mission was in response to a string of North Korean provocations, the most recent of which was the successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile, U.S. Pacific Air Forces said in a statement.

As it turns out, North Korea was right about the missile test, and America wasn't happy with its actions and made a decision to return the favor with a supreme show of force.

The US Air Force bombers released inert weapons on Friday on a training range in South Korea.

In response to the launch, US and South Korean troops fired ballistic missiles in a simulated attack on the North's leadership, in what was described "as a strong message of warning".

Pyongyang has been working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.

"Of course, as always, you have our absolute support in your efforts to ensure peace and stability is restored on the Korean peninsula", Mr Turnbull said.

Wrapping up his second European tour, Trump and Asian allies searched for consensus on how to counter what the president called the "menace" of North Korea. The penetrate takes after a jointly mounted guns and rocket practice by South Korean and US powers a day after the North's ICBM test.

The Korean War was marked by deadly USA bombing campaigns in Korea.

In a separate meeting, Abe and Jens Stoltenberg, secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, agreed to strengthen cooperation between the two sides to reinforce the foundations of cooperation among Japan, the United States and Europe amid an increasingly tough security environment in East Asia.

But during his meeting, Trump told Xi, "I appreciate the things that you have done relative to the very substantial problem that we all face in North Korea".

During Saturday's drill, long-range B-1B Lancer bombers reportedly flew close to the heavily-fortified border between two Koreas and dropped 2,000-pound (900 kilogram) bombs. And if it fired at a normal trajectory it could put Alaska in its range.
