How do we know a war is not going on there right now?
That these drills are simply an excuse to attack N-Korea and bring the reunification?
The FOG there to create confusion, hence who attacked who first.
Anyways, do we have technology to create FOG?
I think we are pretty advanced, it shouldn't be that hard at all.

Why does it seem that many people are blaming SK for this. I understand that they are escalating things further with these drills, but aren't we forgetting the provocation by the North a month ago? SK was ATTACKED blatantly and without remorse. If this were the US in their position, we would be crying to retaliation.
I see this more as SK doing some saber rattling to let the Northies know they won't be pushed around just because they have China to back them up.
