Pentagon: Invasion Only Way to Destroy North Korea's Nuclear Arsenal

"This drill is to stop the shipment of North Korea's nuclear and WMD (weapons of mass destruction) materials in and out through combined navy drill between allies, and to carry out the UNSC (United Nations Security Council) resolution against North Korea's illegal actions of provocation", South Korean navy Rear Adm. Choi Sung-mok, chief of staff for the South Korean fleet said.

The Pentagon made the assessment in a letter to two House members who asked about "expected casualty assessments in a conflict with North Korea", including civilians and US troops in South Korea, Japan and Guam, according to the daily.

The Post reported that a statement from 16 lawmakers - all but one of them Democrats - obtained along with the Pentagon letter said the "assessment underscores what we've known all along: There are no good military options for North Korea".

President Donald Trump ramped up his tough rhetoric against North Korea when he arrived in Japan on Sunday, saying that the United States and its allies are prepared to defend freedom and that "no dictator" should underestimate U.S. resolve.

Renegotiating South Korea's bilateral free trade agreement with the USA, dubbed KORUS, is likely be high on the agenda during the Trump-Moon summit. He said a decision would be made soon on whether to add North Korea to a list of state sponsors of terrorism.

"The regime continues development of its unlawful weapons programs including its illegal nuclear tests and outrageous launches of ballistic missiles directly over Japanese territory are a threat to the civilized world and worldwide peace and stability".

They said South Korea's promises that it will not deploy additional parts of the THAAD system, will not join the U.S.

Donald Trump addresses United States troops at Yokota air base in Fussa, on the outskirts of Tokyo.

North Korea on Sunday warned Donald Trump against making "reckless remarks" as the U.S. president began a marathon Asian tour dominated by the nuclear threat from Pyongyang.

A series of threats were also exchanged on Twitter, with US President Trump calling Kim "little rocket man" and North Korea threatening that a hit on the US was "inevitable".

Trump will instead visit Camp Humphreys, a military base about 40 miles south of Seoul. It's a big problem for our country and the world, and we want to get it solved, ' he said.

The exercises, according to US Forces Korea, are created to "highlight the longstanding military partnership" between the two countries and improve stability and security on the Korean Peninsula.

Givens, who spent four years stationed in Korea, added that the figures did not take into account potential use of nuclear weapons by Pyongyang. "The warmongering, arms-selling businessman Trump shouldn't come to Korea", the coalition said.

Abe said he agreed that now is not the time for direct talks with North Korea, but rather for a strengthening of sanctions against Pyongyang.
