South Korea's Army said Thursday it will be quick in totally destroying North Korea's front-line artillery systems in the event of a war .
In a report to the National Assembly, the Army presented a three-tier missile strike concept in the early stage of an armed conflict
The weapon that will first be mobilized is a tactical surface-to-surface missile, called KTSSM and known as artillery killer.

   "KTSSM-I will strike the enemy's tunnels with the 170-mm self-propelled howitzers and 240-mm multiple-rocket launch systems," it said during the regular parliamentary audit of the operation of the 490,000 troops.
And KTSSM-II will be used to bomb SCUD missile facilities and 300-mm rocket launchers, it added.
The Army also plans to fire Hyunmoo-II ballistic missiles against the North's nuclear and other WMD systems and supporting units.

Rising tensions between North Korea and the United States have sparked fresh concerns inside and outside the Pentagon that a potential miscalculation — driven by heated rhetoric or technical mistakes — could lead to an accidental conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
After a North Korean missile test in mid-September, a U.S. warship patrolling the Sea of Japan received a warning order, or WARNO, to be prepared to fire Tomahawk missiles at North Korean targets, a military source told Foreign Policy.
“It’s not unheard of to do that,” a former senior defense official said of the order to prepare the cruise missiles. “But I would say it is a fairly significant indicator that the possibility of using Tomahawks is rising.”
A WARNO is essentially an instruction to forces to be at the ready if ordered to take action. For Tomahawks, that means prepping the weapon and programming a target; surface ships and submarines in the area are armed with dozens of the cruise missiles.

We're back in another calm period. How long until the next provocation?

North Korea's official news agency described a US aircraft carrier patrolling off the Korean Peninsula as a "primary target" and said Washington should expect an "unimaginable" attack. 
The latest threat on Thursday came amid massive joint US-South Korean naval exercises off the peninsula involving the American aircraft carrier the USS Ronald Reagan.

No words matter anymore on either side. The next provocation will have to be an action, e.g., launching an ICBM.

JUST IN: McMaster says on North Korea, "The only acceptable objective is de-nuclearization." Not a freeze or "weak agreement." #FDDSummit

Is the next launch the one that completes their technology demonstration and closes the window on US aggression?
