-South Korean wartime "decapitation strike" plans against the North Korean leadership.

A spokesman for North Korea's foreign ministry said last month that the more sanctions the USA and its allies impose on North Korea, the faster the nation will work to develop its nuclear weapons programme, according to North Korea's official KCNA news agency. Such flights by the powerful aircraft based in Guam incense the North, which claims they are preparation for war; Pyongyang has threatened to send missiles into the waters around Guam.

Hackers linked to North Korea reportedly targeted USA electric power companies, according to a leading cybersecurity firm. The South has taken an increasingly aggressive stance toward the North's belligerence amid back-and-forth threats of war between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump.

"While I would not characterize them as the best in the world, they are among the best in the world and the best organized", Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, told the Senate a year ago. Neither Lee nor Defense Ministry officials responded to attempts late Tuesday to confirm the stories. Some military experts believe that power supply problems make it hard for North Korea to turn on its air defense radars for 24 hours a day and also that the systems might struggle to effectively track advanced warplanes such as B-1Bs, which have low radar-cross sections.

Joined by South Korean F-15K fighters, the B-1Bs simulated air to ground missile firing over the East Sea.

However, the South Korean defence ministry has refused to comment about this allegation. In a speech at the United Nations in September, the US President accused the North Korean leader Kim of being "on a suicide mission" - while Kim responded by vowing to "tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have intensified in recent months as the Trump administration has struggled to rein in Kim Jong-un's expanding nuclear and ballistic weapons programme. Kim is the third generation of his family to rule North Korea. While early 80 percent of the documents had not yet been identified, they reportedly included contingency plans for South Korean special forces and information on military facilities and power plants, it said.

The F-15 escorts are notable "because combined operations require consent from South Korea, so this does not represent US unilateral action", according to Pinkston.
