US bombers drill over Korean peninsula

China warns tensions on Korean Peninsula at ‘tipping point’ after Pyongyang missile launch

"North Korea's actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland, and their destabilizing actions will be met accordingly", said Gen. Terrence J.

North Korea has been maintaining a torrid pace in weapons tests this year as it openly pursues an arsenal of nuclear-armed, intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching deep into the US mainland.

On Tuesday, UN diplomats secured a unanimous condemnation of Pyongyang's latest missile tests, but it was not expected to immediately lead to new or tightened sanctions, with divisions among the 15-member council on how to proceed.

President Barack Obama rarely ordered immediate responses to North Korean missile tests, "partly because he believed it gave DPRK the attention they were seeking", said Frank Jannuzi, president and CEO of the Mansfield Foundation and a longtime federal analyst who was part of the team that negotiated the Agreed Framework with North Korea during the Clinton administration. North Korea condemns the annual U.S.

Kim Jong Un "sternly" said that "the drill conducted by the (North's) Strategic Force is a curtain-raiser of its resolute countermeasures" against joint military exercises being conducted by the US and South Korea.

"The missile launch would have gotten on my nerves, if the security conditions had been stable and peaceful before that", he added.

Kono told Wang that North Korea's missile launch over Japan on Tuesday is an unprecedentedly serious and grave threat and totally unacceptable.

North Korea has made no secret of its intention to develop a nuclear-tipped missile to fire at the United States and has recently threatened the U.S. territory of Guam.

But the country has been inured, or resigned, to the perennial threats from North Korea for decades.

After the meeting Japanese Ambassador Koro Bessho said "We'll be talking about next steps starting now".

The problem here is that Washington won't be very interested in displaying the kind of "demeanor" that North Korea is likely to want.

To prevent such an unthinkable action, saner heads must make every effort to refocus the US policy toward finding a workable non-military solution to the crisis.

A US military solution to North Korea's missile tests is also unlikely.

According to reporting from The New York Times, the missile flew for 1,700 miles, hurling over the northern island of Hokkaido before landing in the sea.

Constant North Korean provocations do not seriously disturb Seoul-based foreigners like Matthew Crawford either.

Joseph Dunford is the top general of the US military.
