The Korean Quandry: Could Things Go Hot?

F22s

With North Korea continuing to ramp up its rhetoric, the US has both overtly and covertly bolstered its presence in and around the Korean peninsula, with the aim of monitoring the situation and, should things go hot, provide support to its South Korean ally who would bear the brunt of any attack. One such  sign of support was the recent move of two F-22 Raptors from Kadena, Japan, to South Korea, to participate in ongoing joint military exercises with the South Korean military. The pair of fifth generation air dominance fighters, are part of the 27th Fighter Squadron, 18th Wing, who were recently sent to Japan from the US to solidify their presence in the region. Obviously, the world is keeping a keen eye on the situation, hoping the North Koreans back down before a miscalculation causes serious ramifications.
