US to Deploy Newest Missile Attack Drones in South Korea

The United States intends to deploy in South Korea the newest MQ-1C Gray Eagle drones, that can not only conduct reconnaissance flights, but also missile attacks, a South Korean news outlet reported Wednesday.

TOKYO (Sputnik) — According to the Chosun Ilbo, citing a US military source, deployment of Gray Eagle unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), that are superior in combat characteristics to drones used in Iraq and Afghanistan, is scheduled for July. Equipped with night vision cameras, they can make flights lasting up to 30 hours, and are designed to monitor the areas along the demilitarized zone separating South and North Korea.

With the new drones the US and South Korean armed forces will be able to strike helicopters, as well as enemy's tank within distance of about 4,9 miles. For that purpose, each vehicle is equipped with four anti-tank missiles "Hellfire", four glide bombs GBU-44/B, and also can be equipped with air-to-air missiles "Stringer," according to the source.
The United States began a new strategic deployment of weapons in South Korea, following a hydrogen bomb test announced earlier in the month by Pyongyang.

The United States has already deployed a B-52 strategic bomber capable of carrying nuclear cruise missiles and up to 31 metric tons of bombs to South Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is amazing to see how absolutely, consistently, and catastrophically wrong-headed US foreign policy is here.

What Kim Jung Un wants, is a real peace treaty between North Korea, South Korea, and the US with guarantees for peace and trade.

The US and South Korean governments utterly refuse to negotiate in good will here, and this is the only thing which will resolve the issue, other than war with North Korea, which will certainly mean war with China.

War with China right now would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government and military could do right now; unfortunately, that is utterly no guarantee that the US government won't just haul off and do it.
