The United States will send “strategic” military assets to South Korea on a more regular basis to better deter North Korea, the South’s national security adviser said Thursday. The decision comes at a time of escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea, with many analysts concerned that incendiary rhetoric, combined with more frequent flyovers by U.S. bombers, could lead to a catastrophic miscalculation.Chung Eui-yong, national security adviser to President Moon Jae-in, told lawmakers in Seoul that U.S. “strategic assets” could be deployed to South Korea on a “rotational” basis before the end of the year. “This will help us expand our defense capabilities,” he told the lawmakers, according to Park Wan-joo, spokesman for the ruling Democratic Party.He did not define “strategic assets,” but South Korean officials usually use the term to refer to B-52 bombers, stealth warplanes, nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers.
