Bombs explode on a mountain range during a joint live firing drill between South Korea and the US at the Seungjin Fire Training Field in Pocheon, 65 kms northeast of Seoul, on August 28, 2015North Korea would have no chance of defeating its southern neighbor and its allies in a conflict, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday, days after the peninsula appeared on the brink of armed conflict. Last month’s inter-Korean crisis was triggered by landmine blasts that maimed two South Korean soldiers on patrol along the border with the North. “We need to make sure that North Koreans always understand that any provocation with them will be dealt with, and they stand no chance of defeating us and our allies in South Korea,” Carter told troops in a televised broadcast.
