-South Korea air exercise, with Pyongyang calling it an "all-out provocation" that could lead to nuclear conflict as a USA lawmaker warned of a growing likelihood of "preemptive war" on the divided peninsula.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un thanked workers during a visit to a factory that built the tires for a huge vehicle used to transport a new intercontinental ballistic missile that was test-launched this week, the country's media reported yesterday.

The five-day Vigilant Ace drill - involving some 230 aircraft including F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighters - begins on Monday, five days after the North test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile believed capable of hitting the United States mainland in a fresh challenge to President Donald Trump. North Korea's latest missile is believed by experts to be capable of reaching all parts of the continental U.S. Despite its range, though, reports say U.S. officials now believe the missile likely did not survive re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.

North Korea has been eligible for even harsher sanctions since US President Donald Trump declared it a designated state sponsor of terrorism last month, and White House National Security Advisor H.R McMaster has admitted the newspaper editorial's warning of war was credible.

"What is clear is that every time he conducts a missile launch, a nuclear test, he gets better", McMaster told Baier, "Whether it's a success or failure isn't as important as understanding that over the years he's been learning from failures, improving, and thereby increasing his threat to all of us". It has been set up under the South Korean army's Special Warfare Command.

Graham said he has had extensive discussions with the Trump administration about the situation.

Prince George asks Santa for police auto on dad's Finland trip
After trying really hard to be a good boy all year, Prince George has very politely asked Santa for a police vehicle . Prince William handed over the letter to "Santa" today during his royal tour in Helsinki, Finland.

The missile's large size was immediately apparent in the photos, which analysts said could provide for a more powerful propulsion system.

The isolationist state recently tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile that, it claimed, could reach anywhere on the U.S. mainland.

The Rodong Sinmun commentary said the aerial wargames show "the enemies' moves to start a nuclear war have reached a risky stage".

"We are in a race to be able to solve this problem", McMaster said.

At the California forum, McMaster said Kim was extremely unlikely to change his behavior "without some significant new actions in the form of much more severe sanctions" and "complete enforcement of the sanctions that are in place".
