Hmm… The situation’s getting serious on Peninsula:
… B-2 Spirit bombers are capable of carrying either conventional or nuclear weapons. In a statement, the United States Forces Korea said the mission “demonstrates the United States’ ability to conduct long-range, precision strikes quickly and at will.”
Dubbed “Foal Eagle,” the training exercise involves about 200,000 South Korean troops and 10,000 U.S. forces and is due to continue until the end of April.

Japan Launches H2-A Rocket Loaded Spy Satellites, Amid Concerns About N. Korea’s Missiles
Radar and optical trackers go into orbit; program underscores Tokyo’s wariness
TOKYO — Japan launched two intelligence satellites into orbit on Sunday amid growing concerns that North Korea is planning to test more rockets of its own and possibly conduct a nuclear test. Officials say the launch Sunday of the domestically produced H2-A rocket went smoothly, and the satellites — an operational radar satellite and an experimental optical probe — appear to have reached orbit.
Japan began its intelligence satellite program after North Korea fired a long-range missile over Japan’s main island in 1998. North Korea conducted a launch last month that it says carried a satellite into orbit but has been condemned by the United States and others as a cover for its development of missile technology.
