'Cons in Korea

The United States is starting to prepare for war against North Korea by gradually moving planes and ships into the area. The Korea Herald quotes a Korean military officer on condition of anonymity:

"Though the U.S. military says the deployments are part of rotations planned beforehand and unrelated to any particular threat, the updated capabilities as well as current military capabilities are remarkable."

This may just be part of the negotiation strategy, but it will be interesting to see how quickly the escalation of military preparedness continues as the negotiations drag on.
