North Korea 'launches' surprise attack on aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson

North Korean state-run media have released a video depicting an attack on a US Navy aircraft carrier in response to joint US/South Korean military drills in past weeks.

The film shows images of joint US and South Korean military drills that are conducted annually with the last dual operations involving the carrier taking place earlier this month.

The nearly three-minute-long clip also showed an image of a B-1B bomber similarly on fire with angry narration and military music playing in the background.

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that the female speaker said: "a knife will be stabbed into the throat of the carrier, while the bomber will fall from the sky after getting hit by a hail of fire".

Just days after the military drills North Korea reportedly launched a missile near its border with China and Pyongyang has threatened to take action if their sovereignty had been compromised.

Right. But it's real news so Trump and Spicer didn't recognize it.

What a dull video, no action shots at all just a series of stills with totally amateur effects added. Enthralling. Take a look.

Kim has at least one old submarine and has more than a few 'bombs'. The B-1 brings back memories to me when the pilot and crew were imbibing in a seedy bar just outside Robins Air Force Base, Georgia. The seediest bar was off limits so they picked the second seediest bar. The pilot had been on a B-52 bombing PAVN and he explained to me about precision bombing and the 'beeper'.

EOUL (Reuters) - A North Korean missile appeared to have exploded on Wednesday just after it was launched, the U.S. and South Korean militaries said after detecting the latest in a series of weapons tests by the nuclear-armed state that have alarmed the region.

The launch attempt was made from near the city of Wonsan, on North Korea's east coast, the same place from where it launched several intermediate-range missiles last year, all but one of which failed.

"U.S. Pacific Command detected what we assess was a failed North Korean missile launch attempt ... in the vicinity of Kalma," Commander Dave Benham, a spokesman for U.S. Pacific Command, said in a statement, referring to an air field in Wonsan.

"A missile appears to have exploded within seconds of launch," Benham said, adding that work was being carried out on a more detailed assessment.

A South Korean military official told Reuters the missile appeared to have exploded just after it was launched.

"It may have exploded right after it took off from a launch pad," said military official, who declined to be identified.

It was not clear what type of missile it was. The South Korean defense ministry said it was conducting analysis to determine further details.

The increasing frequency of the missile tests has fueled a growing sense of urgency over how to respond to the isolated, unpredictable state.

North Korea launched four ballistic missiles from near its west coast on March 6 and this week conducted a rocket engine test that its leader, Kim Jong Un, said opened "a new birth" of its rocket industry.

Electronic jamming won't counter a ballistic missile. I read about an Air Force plane that has a high power chemical laser which can burn through a ballistic missile's skin in few seconds causing it to explode. The United States is still at war with North Korea because a peace treaty was never signed.
