U.S.-South Korea military exercises under way
Red, commanded by retired Marine Corps Lt. General Paul K. Van Riper, used old methods to evade Blue's sophisticated electronic surveillance network. Van Riper used motorcycle messengers to transmit orders to front-line troops and World War II lighting signals to get airplanes off the runways without using radio communication. Red received an ultimatum from Blue, that was essentially a surrender document, that Red must respond to within 24 hours. Given that Red knew that Blue was coming, by the second day of the exercise Red used a fleet of small boats to determine the position of Blue's fleet. In a preemptive strike, Red launched a massive salvo of cruise missiles, overwhelming the Blue forces' electronic sensors, destroying sixteen warships. This includes one aircraft carrier, ten cruisers and five out of the six amphibious ships. The equivalent of this success in a real conflict would have resulted in the death of over 20,000 service personnel. Soon after the cruise missile offensive, another significant portion of Blue's navy was "sunk" by an armada of small Red boats carrying out both conventional and suicide attacks, able to engage Blue forces due to Blue's inability to detect them as well as expected.
A massive U.S. aircraft carrier launched large-scale naval maneuvers Sunday with South Korea off the Korean Peninsula's west coast, military officials said, days after North Korea bombarded an inhabited southern island, in a potent show of force that North Korea threatened could lead to the "brink of war."
"The drills started around 6 a.m. Sunday with the USS George Washington joining our warships in the Yellow Sea," said an official at the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), adding the drills are taking place off the west coast town of Taean, far south of the tense Yellow Sea border where Tuesday's attack took place.
