US and South Korean forces will simulate a hostage rescue during these excersizes, and it sounds like a whole lotta more provocation for ol Kimmy, judging by the amount of forces being used, and the location of the drill....

Snippet from story by the "Chosun Ilbo" below....

"This year's exercise is especially big with about 30,000 U.S. troops, including some 3,000 stationed overseas -- three times the previous size of the U.S. contingent".

I have a feeling with the overabundance of US troops involved here, it will push North korea over the top. Too close to home, and following the yellow sea drills, as well as, the recent US joint drills, this might be a little too much to take...just my two cents

Toss in the USS George Washington returning for drills in the West Sea, and I'd say you've got a sure thing.....wait till China finds out....
