United States bombers hold drill near Korea DMZ

United States bombers carried out a rare live fire drill in South Korea on Saturday, flying close to the DMZ in a show of force after Pyongyang's latest missile test, the South's defense ministry said.

He was also accompanied by key party and military officials who contributed to the successful launch of the Hwasong-14, an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) which Pyongyang fired off on Tuesday in its latest provocation in defiance of worldwide sanctions.

Australia to speed missile defence development, Turnbull says
THAAD is the same system the United States recently deployed in South Korea and is touted as "100 percent successful" so far. During the test, the THAAD system will detect, track and engage the target with a THAAD interceptor, the report said.

North Korea on Tuesday test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time, an apparent game-changer in its confrontation with Washington over its nuclear and missile programs.

"Something has to be done about it", Trump said as he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump seemed to think he'd found a partner on North Korea in Chinese President Xi Jinping following their April summit in Florida. Any country that hosts North Korean guest workers, provides any economic or military benefits, or fails to fully implement U.N.

The Trump administration has tried to pressure Beijing to rein in North Korea, a major trading partner, to halt Kim Jong-un's development of nuclear weapons before they have the ability to threaten the USA homeland.

Leaders at the G20 summit in Germany have called for a quick UN Security Council resolution to apply new sanctions on North Korea after the launch. Citing the Missile Defense Agency, CNN said the test will involve the defense system, based in Alaska, intercepting an intermediate-range ballistic missile.

House and Senate health care bills are heartless and cruel
McConnell could ask Cruz speak to GOP senators at lunch as soon as Tuesday, according to a person familiar with his strategy. Moderate Republicans oppose the bill's adjustments to Medicaid and the repeal of Obamacare's taxes .

North Korea has hailed the ICBM test as marking the completion of is strategic weapons capability that it says includes atomic and hydrogen bombs.
