Oct 17, 2017

The U.S. Navy along with the South Korean navy began naval exercises off the coast of the Korean peninsula. The purpose of the joint exercises is to promote “communications, interoperability and partnership in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations.” In a new development, it’s been learned that on board one of the American submarines is “a unit of U.S. special forces tasked with carrying out ‘decapitation’ operations.” The objective of the special forces would be to take out North Korean leadership in the event of war. As part of the exercises, the U.S. military will practice “evacuating noncombatant Americans out of South Korea in the event of war and other emergencies.” Fighter jets, Apache attack helicopters, and naval choppers will be involved in the operations to monitor North Korea’s ground and naval forces. On Monday, North Korea accused the United States of pushing North Korea into creating a hydrogen bomb.
