US Flies Planes by North Korea

US Flies Planes by North Korea

(Washington)

In a sign of escalation of the tension between the US and North Korea, the US sent war planes flying very near to the country over the weekend. The act is seemingly the first outside of simple rhetoric undertaken by the US. North Korea warned in the UN on Saturday that it would take "merciless pre-emptive action" if provoked by the US. In response, the US flew its planes closer to North Korea than at any time in the 21st century, intended as a show of force to Pyongyang.

FINSUM : The tension just keeps building and building and we wonder where it is headed. Hopefully both sides continue to stick to words only.
