The Chinese media's beating up on Korea went a step further.

Tension on the Korean peninsula has escalated as North Korea's young leader, Kim Jong Un, has stepped up the development of weapons, testing a string of missiles this year, including one flying over Japan, and conducting its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.

Around 600 USA troops taking part in military drills in Japan are said to be "ready" to react to any provocation from North Korea.

Experts believe the isolated regime is close to its goal of developing a powerful nuclear weapon capable of reaching the United States, something US President Donald Trump has vowed to prevent.

A "normal" angle refers to a test with a missile trajectory that simulates an attack with a specific target, such as the USA territory of Guam, as opposed to a test in a controlled environment within North Korea.

Jon Rahm (+1800 5Dimes) Jon Rahm really came back to life last week after going through a few bad weeks in a row. After what we played last week with the rough we had last week , anything seems simple.

Thousands of policemen were deployed to protect the Thaad systems which are four in number and are in addition to two other Thaad system batteries installed in the village in April which also birthed a similar clash. But North Korea's ICBM launches in July prompted him to order his government to discuss deployment of the four remaining launchers at the Seongju military base, 220 kilometers (136 miles) southeast of Seoul.

She said people were dumbfounded as the Moon government now emphasized the need for THAAD in South Korea, expecting heightened military tensions in Northeast Asia with the installation of the USA anti-missile system irrelevant to the protection from the DPRK's nuclear and missile threats. But all of a sudden, they are enthusiastically inciting the Chinese people to oppose the Thaad installation.

"The battery will be operational as soon as the US finishes its internal procedures", South Korean defence ministry spokesman Moon Sang-gyun told reporters.

South Korean Marines wrapped up a three-day firing drill aimed at protecting islands just south of the border with North Korea, while the air force will finish up a week-long drill on Friday.
