US and South Korea launch major war drills

The US and South Korea launched a military drill involving three American aircraft carrier strike groups in a massive show of force that drew the anger of rival North Korea. The USS Ronald Reagan, USS Nimitz, and USS Theodore Roosevelt converged in the region for the four-day manoeuvres, also involving 11 American Aegis vessels and seven South Korean warships. North Korea's foreign ministry issued a statement describing Trump's trip as "a warmonger's visit for confrontation. It is also nothing but a business trip by a warmonger to enrich the monopolies of the US defence industry by milking the moneybags from its subordinate 'allies'."
