Paul Begley gives us a news update: China is moving its troops to the North Korean border. Though China says that these are normal ‘war games’, a large scale troop maneuver has occurred. Normal war games or a prelude to something much bigger?
China’s military is holding large-scale military maneuvers near the North Korean border amid new signs of political instability in Pyongyang.
U.S. military intelligence assets in Asia—including satellites, aircraft and ships—are monitoring the war games by the 39th Army Group that are part of the Shenyang military region.
A defense official said the war games are routine winter training and do not appear related to the ouster of No. 2 North Korean leader Jang Song Thaek, confirmed by the Pyongyang regime Sunday night.
The PLA Daily, the official military newspaper, reported Friday that the exercises began Dec. 4 and involved cold-weather operations of about 3,000 troops.
