These fighters previously deployed in the United States, Virginia, Langley Air Force Base, Kadena they will deploy four months.

North Korea to “seal Nantong U.S.” road not work
summit in Singapore, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said: “We will not recognize North Korea is nuclear power. solemnly reaffirmed the U.S. government: our allies in the region to provide protection. “When the South Korean Defense Minister Lee Sang-Xi met with Gates, Gates specifically please repeat these words, plus a warning,” South Korea and Tired of the United States warned North Korea, the Korea-US North Korea will not compromise. “Also in summit, Japanese Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada of Japan has deliberately emphasized that North Korea is ready to respond to the threat, but not the first to launch a crack down on North Korea .
“Youth Reference” newspaper in Hong Kong, who requested anonymity to connect military experts, he believes that the United States if Japan and South Korea Defense Minister’s speech linked together, you will find an interesting phenomenon: Three sent to North Korea strong signal, not the past when the North Korean nuclear crisis, the “Declaration of Independence”, but the nature of a military group “common warning.” Gates’s speech has two meanings, first spread out cards to Korea, Japan and South Korea to prevent North Korea to use United Front “different attitude”, then the “small run” approach to nuclear status become a reality, so clear that “the U.S. commitment to lift the nuclear-armed North Korea can not be shaken.” Second, Gates emphasized the United States on security issues in Northeast Asia of the “boss” status, to prevent South Korea or Japan to take “defensive walk alone” act, by emphasizing the U.S. security commitment to allies, Japan and South Korea tied hands and feet, in other words, “To get involved, have to wait for Washington utterance.”
The expert concluded that “Shangri-La Dialogue” reflects the struggle of the United States toward the changes in the way, Washington is often in the past would like to see the North Korean nuclear crisis in North Korea “seal Nantong United States’ foreign policy, the Korean South Korea’s tough to play the card, but expressed its willingness to the United States as “negotiating partner”, which the U.S. turn a blind eye. But this situation changes, two U.S. allies Japan and South Korea determined to be sure to pull in order to “paramilitary groups” under the name of the red line to the North Korean program.
“two cornerstone” laid the US-South Korea alliance
shout with one voice to the DPRK, the United States must build a US-South Korea “military alliance triangle . ” According to the U.S. “Global Strategic Network” reported back in April, North Korea launched “light star 2″ satellite, the United States will start in Japan Iwate US-Japan joint center to monitor missile defense and joint US-South Korea and South Korea Osan Air Force Command Center for data networking, the formation of the North Korean satellite launch “relay control”, and the ultimate integration of data from the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii to complete.
fact, the U.S. missile defense using this “great sign”, and gradually to information sharing, joint exercises and other hidden way, the original parallel US-Japan bilateral US-ROK military alliance, converted into United States, Japan trilateral military alliance. According to the Japanese “J-Wing” magazine, reported in March, South Korean Defense Ministry and the Defense Research Institute (ADD) are working together to develop a “Korean-style ballistic missile defense system” to deal with North Korea’s missile and nuclear threats. The system is almost similar system to narrow the US-Japan version, which is divided into ballistic missile early warning systems, C4I and ground-based tactical command system, three major multi-interceptor missiles, does not include sea-based interceptor missile system (NTW) and high-altitude laser interceptor, only a range of 1,500 kilometers on the short-range ballistic effect. However, the system involved in the intercept warhead fairing (NOSECONE), the infrared technology to track incoming ballistic missiles, destroy the target’s kinetic warhead technology are from Japan, the technology is the US-Japan missile defense system developed by the Japanese company responsible for If Korea really the import of Japanese weapons and spare parts (even if it is approved by the U.S. changed hands), the shock effect of the conclusion of no less openly anti-DPRK United States, Japan military alliance.
addition to missile defense, the United States there is a magic weapon to win over Japan and South Korea – “Proliferation Security Initiative” (PSI). The organization was in May 2003 under the auspices of former U.S. President George W. Bush set up to exchange of information, interception and other measures, blockade North Korea, Iran and other countries, the United States that the risk of nuclear proliferation in weapons of mass destruction and transfer of sensitive materials. PSI Japan and the United States as a “dual-core axis,” which has held a number of consecutive large-scale joint naval exercises. Until recently, the North Korean nuclear test, South Korea finally announced to join PSI, which will undoubtedly strengthen the US-Japan naval blockade of North Korea’s strength and scope.
