As reports continue to circulate that the regime of Kim Jong Un is preparing to test a more sophisticated ICBM that could strike anywhere in the United States the rhetoric has also escalated. The Korean Defense Minister has now indicated that war with the United States is “imminent”. This type of rhetoric has been used before by the North Koreans, but is being taken more seriously as their weapons capability increases. The U.S. military is continuing to move assets in the area including more naval ships as well as air force fighters and bombers. It is also continuing joint maneuvers with both the South Korean and Japanese military.
