As tensions rise, US and South Korea begin drills
from The New York Times
The United States and South Korea began their largest joint war games in years, with a nuclear powered American aircraft carrier prowling off the east coast of South Korea while North Korea threatened to retaliate and reportedly put its military on alert for war. The rising tensions demonstrated just how tenuous peace has been on the divided peninsula since the Korean War was halted, 57 years ago, by a cease-fire between the United States-led forces of the United Nations and the Communist troops of North Korea and China.
