Trump draws up plans for military strike on Pyongyang

North Korea threatens to use 'nuclear sword of justice' against US-South Korea military drills Pyongyang warns of strong response to US-South Korea drills

Internal review includes military action and regime change, U.S. media reported The North Korean strategies that are being reviewed internally by the White House include the possibility of regime change and the use of military force to weaken the North Korean nuclear threat, the Wall Street Journal reported on March 1, quoting a source who is familiar with the review.

Advocates of such efforts say they believe that targeted attacks have given USA anti-missile defences a new edge and delayed, by several years, the day when North Korea will be able to threaten U.S. cities with nuclear weapons launched atop intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The war games between Seoul and Washington annually frustrate North Korea, who considers its military activities a sign of aggression.

The fact that thousands of US and South Korean troops are involved in the current military exercises proves that "these [drills] are not defensive, [but] are invasion-like exercises", he added.

The allies also plan to start a two-week computer-simulated command post exercise, called Key Resolve, on March 13.

"It remains our intent to have [THAAD] there and in an operational state as soon as feasible", he said.

Mr McFarland requested for all options to completely overhaul American foreign policy towards Pyongyang, including for the country to recognise North Korea as a nuclear state and the possibility of a direct conflict.

For years, mainstream analysts and politicians have generally seen military action as unthinkable because of its potential to spark regional war and cause huge civilian casualties, particularly in South Korea, a close USA ally.

According to KCNA, the Korean Central News Agency, the "North will mercilessly foil the nuclear war racket of the aggressors with its treasured nuclear sword".

Earlier this week, when Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-koo spoke by phone, Mattis welcomed the land transfer in South Korea that will support stationing the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, also known as THAAD, Davis said. Last, without delay Mr. Trump must continue to labor with Congress to modernize the USA nuclear deterrent and revive Ronald Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative by deploying space-based missile defenses to make nuclear missiles obsolete.
