The United States is the best equipped of the two Koreas to handle the threat of an attack, with the U.S. military having the most forces deployed and the most capable.
In a new report, the Defense Department’s Joint Chiefs of Staff found that the U,S.
has more than 100,000 soldiers, ships, aircraft and support facilities in South Korea and Japan, along with about 2,000 missile-defense sites.
That’s enough firepower to hit the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.
The report concluded that the Koreas should not be at greater risk from an attack than the U-S.
because of their military strength, and because they have “sufficient capabilities to counter a short-term contingency.”
The two Koreans have a long history of mutual mistrust and distrust.
The two Koreaks are technically still at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, but the North has been ramping up its weapons development in recent years.
Experts believe the two sides are both capable of launching a nuclear attack.
During the Cold War, the U of S-Korea was the only Asian country to be invaded by North Korea.
The U.K. also had a nuclear arsenal during World War II, but it was destroyed by the Soviets in 1945.
South Korea has the longest coastline in the world, and it is one of the only countries that is a major trading partner with the United States.
If an attack on South Korea were to occur, the Pentagon says the U in question would be “most vulnerable.”
The Pentagon says a North Korean attack on Seoul would likely cause “devastating” damage and would cause the United Nations Security Council to adopt “strong measures” to deter the North.
South Korea is a vital U.N. member, and the U., along with Japan and China, are also members of the Security Council.
An attack on the U has been averted twice in the past, when North Korea and the United Kingdom both conducted a nuclear test in 2006.
But a third nuclear test is expected this year.
The Pentagon also said that it is “not certain” that North Korea would retaliate against the United states.
North Korea has said that the nuclear tests are part of an international plot to create chaos on the Korean peninsula.
The North has said it would never test nuclear weapons.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has called for a peaceful resolution to the crisis.
