Keep calm, however new North Korea missile check a…

-South Korea air exercise, with Pyongyang calling it an "all-out provocation" that could lead to nuclear conflict as a US lawmaker warned of a growing likelihood of "preemptive war" on the divided peninsula.

The comments came ahead of a joint US-South Korean military drill, scheduled to begin Monday.

A 2.5-magnitude quake has been detected in North Korea near where the country recently conducted a nuclear test, Seoul's weather agency said. They will be joined by more F-35bs - the Marine Corps version, based in Japan - B-1 bombers and E-3 airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft that will fly in to join the wargames and then return to bases elsewhere, the official said. About 12,000 USA personnel and 230 aircraft will take part in the drill.

But it is the stealth fighters that experts say pose the biggest threat to Pyongyang. The launch constitutes North Korea's 15th missile test in 2017, and third-ever ICBM test.

"It is an open, all-out provocation against the DPRK, which may lead to a nuclear war any moment", it said in an editorial Sunday, using the North's official name.

But it also put up bravado over the presence of the F-22s and F-35s.

The North says the Hwasong-15 missile fired on Wednesday can be tipped with a "super-large heavy warhead" capable of striking the whole United States mainland.

A United States official said Saturday technical analysis of that missile's flight is ongoing but the "the North Koreans had problems with re-entry". China is North Korea's only significant ally, but it has grown increasingly frustrated over the North's nuclear and missile tests that have brought a threat of war and chaos to China's northeastern border.

The tension in the Korean Peninsula is extremely high. She talked about additional measures against the DPRK and said President Donald Trump called China's President Xi Jinping Wednesday morning and urged him to cut off all oil deliveries to North Korea.

It's a unsafe world and as you look around and see there are a ton of hot spots, this next question is politically sensitive but you said everything was open when we started this thing, does an event like the indictment, foreign policy or national security impact, in other words, do foreign allies get rattled by it, do adversaries get rattled by it, does it somehow constrain the Trump administration foreign policy?.
