The United States and South Korea are conducting their largest-ever military exercises on the Korean peninsula [1], one week after the White House announced that it was considering military action against North Korea to bring about regime change. [2] The US-led exercises involve: • 300,000 South Korea troops

• US B-18 and B-52 bombers
• South Korean F-15s and KF-16s jetfighters. [3] While the United States labels the drills as “purely defensive” [4] the nomenclature is misleading.
