BREAKING NEWS TODAY 9/27/17, Behind North Korea’s Bluster, Some See Caution, Trump Latest News Today

behind North Korea’s bluster some see
caution Seoul South Korea in the dead of night on Saturday American b-1b
long-range bombers escorted by f-15 fighter jets prowled along North Korea’s
East Coast in one of the United States military’s most daring maneuvers on the
peninsula and decades two days later North Korea’s foreign
minister ryeong Hope declared that Pyongyang had the right to shoot down
American bombers even if they were outside its airspace another escalation
in the war of words between the north and President Trump but when those
planes were near its shores North Korea did nothing South Korean intelligence
officials told lawmakers on Tuesday that the North’s air defense radar may have
failed to detect their presence or they said Pyongyang may have simply chosen to
avoid a confrontation either possibility would seem to contradict the image North
Korea has sought to project that of a nuclear power eager and able to take on
the United States behind the North’s belligerent rhetoric some analysts see a
leadership anxious to avoid a war it can’t win and careful to leave itself
the rhetorical way out even as it makes threats continue reading the main story

said Shin 1 SiC a three-star general who was the South Korean military’s top
operational strategist before he retired in 2015 they can’t fight the war with
the Americans when their fly Jetts don’t even fly far because of lack
of fuel and fear of crashing even as the North has matched mr. Trump’s recent
bellicose rhetoric its military has warned units on the border with South
Korea against rash decisions and reminded them to report up the chain of
command before taking any action according to South Korean intelligence
officials who briefed lawmakers on Tuesday they are careful to avoid an
accidental provocation or clash leaky loop chairman of the South Korean
Parliament’s Intelligence Committee quoted officials as saying during the
closed-door session the extreme rhetoric on both sides and the unconventional
nature of both leaders are widely seen as volatile elements in the current
standoff between North Korea and the United States over the young Young’s
nuclear weapons program many people fear that North Korea’s leader Kim jong-un or
mr. Trump might be impulsive enough to start the conflict even if their
advisers warned them against it but while some longtime observers of North
Korea agreed that the situation was fraught with the uncertainty they said
it would be wise not to overreact to Pyongyang’s aggressive statements they
may have double but not the means to fight the Americans said Shin Dinkin a
military expert who runs the Korea defense network a civic group the threat
to shoot down a United States bomber is a case in point North Korea last shot
down an American warplane in 1969 killing all 31 members of the crew of a
spy plane that was flying off its coasts in 1994 it shot down a United States
Army helicopter that accidentally crossed unto its airspace but today
military analysts said it would be all but impossible for North Korea to shoot
down American warplanes like b-1b strategic bombers f-15 fighter jets or
f-35 stealth fighters especially if they were flying in international airspace
well off the North’s coasts North Korea’s sa five land to air missiles
have a range of only 155 miles they said American warplanes operate under the
protect of radar-jamming technology and North
Korea’s aging MIG fighter jets which are often grounded for lack of fuel and
parts are no match for them mr. shin and other analysts said much as mr. Trump’s
aggressive rhetoric about North Korea like his threat at the United Nations
that totally destroy the country appeals to his core supporters mr. Kim needs to
demonstrate to his people that he is not backing down from foreign threats
analysts said but they noted that the North tends to couch its threats
however lurid with carefully worded conditions when North Korea threatened
in August to create an enveloping fire around the American territory of ganon
with ballistic missiles its original statement said only that it was
seriously examining a plan responding on Friday to mr. Trump’s United Nations
speech mr. Kim called him a mentally deranged us filtered but he did not
commit to a course of action saying only that he would consider the highest level
of hardline countermeasure in history and mr. rip the foreign minister did not
say Monday that North Korea would shoot down American bombers only that it had
the right to do so the North Koreans know how to choose
their words said keen sanguine a visiting research fellow at the essent
Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul who served as a presidential secretary
for security strategy in South Korea until early this year they know how to
calculate their stakes they are not reckless with its threats North Korea is
trying to make the United States thing twice about further shows of force even
as it seeks to portray itself as playing defense against an American Bully said
Lee Seong Yoon a Korea expert at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at
Tufts University at the same time Yong Yong probably hopes China and South
Korea will call for calm and restraint while using mr. Trump’s threats as
justification to conduct another missile or nuclear test mr. Lee said North Korea
has to sound tough because it fears that if it is pushed back under American
pressure now it will never regain its ground said kim jung-han
a professor of North Korean Studies at donc University in Seoul it fears that
if it backs down china and russia won’t come to its aid analysts said the lack
of a regular high-level diplomatic contact between Pyongyang and Washington
made it likelier that one side would miss read the other rendering the recent
bombastic rhetoric called the more dangerous the level of mutual
understanding between the United States and North Korea is low while the chances
of miscalculation are high mr. keen said Liu Kang a spokesman for the Chinese
Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Tuesday at a regular news conference in
Beijing that China was very displeased with the escalating war of words between
the United States and North Korea adding that there would be no winners from
rashly triggering war on the peninsula Peninsula
