South Korea, US conduct exercises for removing North Korean weapons of mass destruction: report

The United States and South Korea reportedly held joint drills to prepare for a potential military conflict in which they would penetrate and remove weapons of mass destruction in the North.

South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported that the drills, called “Warrior Strike,” were held at Camp Stanley, north of the capital city of Seoul, last week.

{mosads}Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, who commands U.S. Forces Korea, and South Korea’s chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Jung Kyung-doo, visited Camp Stanley, the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division wrote on Facebook last Friday.

The exercises come amid concerns about Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile development programs. North Korea late last month launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that Defense Secretary James Mattis said “went higher, frankly, than any previous shot they’ve taken.”

President Trump has cautioned North Korea against provoking the United States.
