Is the US planning to attack N.Korea? updated

With the rhetoric
and accusations mounting daily, the world media attention is currently on
Iraq and the possibility of the war spreading
to
Iran

The speculation
and the warnings of such an attack have been roundly condemned by groups as
diverse as ex US generals and inter faith groups. 

What is currently
going unnoticed is the
US military build up in Japan.

Following
agreement with the Japanese government in October 05 to reduce the number of US
troops on the
island of Okinawa, the US has secretly been building that number up
again to over 50,000. 

Today, tucked
away in a small news
item
was the news that the US Air Force is deploying its newest and latest nuclear
capable F-22 Raptor, a stealth fighter bomber.

The 12 aircraft
were due to land at the island's Kadena airbase on Sunday but the
US said they had turned back to Hawaii for operational reasons.

The jets are to
be stationed on
Okinawa for three months – the first time the
jets have been deployed outside the
US.  

Would
George Bush be stupid enough to launch an attack on N.Korea while everyone else
is looking at Iran.?  Only time will
tell


Update 12/02/06 –

The Jets deployment comes as the US continues to take part in six-nation talks in the Chinese capital, Beijing, aimed at bringing an end to North Korea's nuclear arms programme. Today is the last day of those talks.

The Chief US negotiator to North Korea has today told Pyongyang to stop stalling and accept a deal

Analysts say questions are already being asked about the usefulness of continuing the talks, if there are no tangible results again this time round.

Is this an indication that the US is running out of patience? Is the US no longer concerned about talking, knowing that they now have aircraft stationed on Okinawa that could strike North Korea.
