N. Korea enters 'state of war' with S. Korea (4/1/13)

WOODBURY - Tensions between North and South Korea remain high today after North Korean officials reiterated their state of war with the south.

Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said the U.S. recently sent two F-22s to participate in the annual U.S.-South Korean military drills. Little said this is the fourth time F-22s have been deployed to South Korea. He said their participation in the exercises is meant to show U.S. commitment to the defense of South Korea and to the region.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said that building nuclear weapons was one of his nation's highest priorities.

U.S. officials maintain that North Korea is not capable of striking at the U.S. mainland.
