Media: The Pentagon has installed additional Patriot complexes in South Korea

33
The Pentagon has deployed three additional Patriot air defense systems, PAC-3, in South Korea as part of a joint exercise in response to the recent launch of a North Korean missile, reports RIA News message agency "Renhal".




“The US-South Korean alliance is focused on the real threat from the DPRK. The DPRK continued to develop ballistic missiles, despite the demands of the international community, therefore the alliance should support the readiness and effectiveness of measures to protect (the region) from ballistic missiles ",
said the commander of the American forces in Kazakhstan, Thomas Vandal.

He also announced the parties' intention to conduct anti-missile exercises, without, however, specifying the exact date of their commencement.

“Exercises like these will ensure our continued readiness to protect (the region) in case of attacks from the DPRK,” Vandal stressed.

      Why from all? To South Korea, he will appear from the north through the 38th parallel .. God forbid, of course.
      Just don’t understand, “Patriot” air defense system is THAAD in South Korean? Or will the Americans later deploy a modern missile defense system there?

      Even without nuclear weapons, the DPRK armed forces numbering about 1 million. quite able to arrange a local apocalypse on the Korean Peninsula. At the same time, the territory of the DPRK is very well prepared in terms of engineering for the conduct of defensive military operations.

      The protective doctrine of the United States and its allies is based on the fact that in those areas where there is even a minimal threat, have an overwhelming advantage. Therefore, the United States and build multipurpose submarines, destroyers, aircraft carriers and fighters in large numbers.

    I don’t know how about increasing the number of Patriots, but given the quality of North Korean missiles, it’s worth it to alert the missiles that are available with each new test, so as not to get the wrong head. Our air defense took care of this back in 2009.

      If you are talking about C-400 under Nakhodka, then the entire Far Eastern Federal District cannot be covered with two divisions. Yes, the quality of the North Korean missiles created on the basis of our P-17 is quite acceptable.

        “However, our military is not indifferent to what is happening nearby. Moreover, according to the head of Roscosmos Anatoly Perminov, the DPRK's military missile technology is far from perfect, it can deviate from the given route and fall at any stage of the flight. Can we track it down and destroy it? if the "blank" is over Russian soil?

        We can, do not doubt the General Staff. While there is no S-400 in the Far East, her younger sister, the three hundred, will cope with this task.

        “If a North Korean ballistic missile is deflected towards Russian territory, our air defense systems, in particular, the modernized S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, can hit a missile that has gone astray,” says Anatoly Nogovitsyn.

    Do you think that it is the DPRK that is in danger! The country maintains military hysteria, tension. Instead of peaceful labor and trade with the whole world, the country makes ballistic missiles, atomic and hydrogen bombs. And the resources are limited, these are not the USSR, China and the United States. - shortage of food, and the main sponsors of aid are precisely the South Caucasus, Japan, the United States. We found enemies. This reminds us that we are giving Ukraine a discount on gas, and in response they are "aggressors", "quilted jackets", murderers

    North Korea would have: modern fighters, air defense systems, AWACS aircraft, jamming aircraft, non-nuclear submarines, corvettes with frigates, anti-submarine aircraft, and of Iskander-E and Caliber missiles, and no one would snuggle up to them.

    Kims would have been sitting in their sandbox - no one would have touched them (since the neighbors are already very cool, although they don’t climb to him), except that they have picked up their people. So you have to create an external threat (because of this, even quarreled with one of the neighbors), and inside the martial law, so that no one could crush on them. In general, a monkey with a large grenade. And you need to do something with it, and nothing can be done, because it will explode, if only for them, but it will explode in such a way that it will not seem to everyone.

      So the United States is constantly conducting exercises near North Korea, US ships and submarines go off their coast. If not for nuclear weapons, North Korea would have long awaited the fate of Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.
      To prevent the United States from bombing the country and send troops into it?

        Already once I introduced both my own and those who weren’t there. But the Korean war led to a stalemate, because the northerners were supported by the USSR and China. Nuclear China will not allow America to expand its zone of interests in the region, and we are also pro-American or unstable united Korea is not desirable at hand.
        P.S. And besides the terrain and the large numbers of the DPRK army do not promise an easy walk.

      That is why the DPRK is forced to arm itself, as its neighbors and not only neighbors are extremely aggressive and want to change the system on its territory.

    In any case, while they fly exactly as they should .. This is for all skeptics of North Korean missiles ..
    And the North Korean rocket then reaches America,

    It will be necessary, fly ..

    That's just South Korea just that, so immediately to the United States for help. They have not yet forgotten the 50s, when Korea gouged the troops of its puppet government along with the Americans. Yes, technically the DPRK army is much worse equipped and inferior to the South Korean army, but there is still enough fighting spirit. Therefore, "gouging at times", as you write, and even more so alone will not succeed.

    The South Korean authorities, in connection with recent ballistic missile tests by the DPRK, have decided to terminate their companies in the Kaesong Industrial Park, which was founded jointly with the DPRK in 2004 a few kilometers from the border with South Korea, AP reports.

    And the DPRK seized property of South Korean companies in the industrial zone of Kaesong ..
    http://www.vz.ru/news/2016/2/11/793625.html
    “The equipment, materials, products and all other property of the enterprises and bodies of the southern side in the industrial zone in Kesong is completely frozen,” follows from a statement by the North Korean Committee for the Peaceful Unification of the Homeland, RIA Novosti reports.
    The DPRK also expelled all South Korean citizens from the industrial zone and blocked access from the south.

    On Wednesday, the South Korean government announced the termination of 124 South Korean companies in the technology park in the DPRK in response to the February 7 launch of a long-range missile by Pyongyang.

    Jacob that's something like this ..
