U.S. troops in South Korea began installing the equipment of an advanced missile defense system at a site in a southeastern region of the country, facing fierce protests from local residents.
Six trailers reportedly carrying the high-profile radar of the THAAD system and other elements were seen entering the site. USFK issued no statement on the sensitive issue, but South Korea's Ministry of National Defense confirmed the start of the full-scale deployment. "The measure this time is meant to secure early operational capability by positioning some available parts first at the site," the ministry said.
The two sides plan to put the THAAD unit in full operation by the end of this year, according to the ministry.

In all honesty..this is a dog and pony show. Trying to pull his chain.
If SK was a target, and NK wanted it gone, there is nothing we could do about it.
China will NEVER, EVER, allow a proxy state of the US next to its border. Sorry, not going to happen. NK is here to stay for a long while.
Trump is a just a show-man.
