N Korea hacks Seoul's war plan

Reuters reported that the U.S. military said in a separate statement it conducted drills with Japanese fighters after the exercise with South Korea, making it the first time USA bombers have conducted training with fighters from both Japan and South Korea at night.

North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth and biggest nuclear test in recent weeks in defiance of U.N. sanctions as it races towards its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.

The bilateral training mission between the U.S. B-1B bombers and South Korean F-15K fighter jets on Tuesday night followed a September 23 mission in which USA bombers and fighter escorts used pre-dawn hours to fly to the farthest point of the border between North and South Korea by any US aircraft this century.

An unusually aggressive approach to the North by Trump, which has included rhetoric hinting at USA strikes and threatening the destruction of North Korea's leadership, has some South Koreans fearful that war is closer than at any time since the Korean War ended in 1953 in a shaky cease-fire, leaving the Korean Peninsula still technically in a state of war.

The B-1Bs also conducted exercises with Japan's Air Self-Defense Force in what the US statement called a "sequenced bilateral mission". Pyongyang belatedly responded by relocating some of its military aircraft to its east coast, the National Intelligence Service then said.

Mr Trump also mocked Kim Jong-un, calling the regime's leader "Rocket Man".

North Korea swore on Wednesday to bring "a hail of fire" after President Trump "lit the wick of war" with the Hermit Kingdom, the latest dramatic pronouncement promising conflict between the rogue regime and the United States.

In a surprising sign of weakness, the commentary also says that if North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would join the United States in the Korean Peninsula it would "change the balance of forces" against it.

Secret intelligence documents and photos collected by the USA military were among what was stolen from South Korea's classified information by Pyongyang hackers in September 2016.

The Defense Ministry after an investigation said in May that North Korea was likely behind the hacking of the Defense Integrated Data Center in September past year, but had refused to confirm media speculation that the decapitation strike plan was compromised.

Fears the crisis could spiral into open conflict have risen as the communist state demonstrated rapid progress in its efforts to develop a nuclear-tipped missile that could target the US mainland despite several rounds of punishing United Nations and other global sanctions against it. North Korea needs time and proof to believe that abandoning its nuclear programme will contribute to its own political and economic advantage. "We must complete the construction of the national nuclear force by thoroughly upholding the party's byungjin policy", said a front-page editorial carried by the Rodong Sinmun newspaper to mark the party anniversary.

A spokesman for the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said its military was closely monitoring the movements of the North Korean army and maintaining full readiness.
