South Korea Koreas Tension The View From Pyongyang.JPEG-02db2.jpg

South Korea Koreas Tension The View From Pyongyang.JPEG-02db2.jpg

In this March 18, 2016 photo, people watch a TV screen showing a file footage of a missile launch conducted by North Korea, at Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea, soon after North Korea defied U.N. resolutions by firing a medium-range ballistic missile into the sea. It's a demand North Korea has been making for decades: The U.S. and South Korea must immediately suspend their annual military exercises if they want peace on the Korean Peninsula. And, once again, it's a demand that is falling on deaf ears. This year's exercises are bigger than ever before and reportedly include training to take out Kim Jong Un himself. For Pyongyang's ruling regime, that's a bridge too far. But probably not far enough to fire the first shots over. The letters on the screen read "North Korea fired a missile against the ongoing joint military exercises, dubbed Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, between South Korea and the United States."
