Britain funds export of CSeries jets in aftermath of trade row

Export credit agency UK Export Finance said the financing for jets being delivered to Korean Air would support jobs in Belfast, where the Canadian planemaker operates a state-of-the-art wings plant. The move comes weeks after Bombardier won a shock reprieve from severe U.S. import duties on the 110-130-seat CSeries when a U.S. tribunal ruled Boeing had failed to prove it had been harmed by low prices of CSeries sold to Delta Air Lines.

How the Air Force Would Destroy North Korea

Kyle Mizokami Security, Think B-2 Bombers and F-16s.  The RQ-4 Global Hawk is ideally suited to the role. Capable of flying for more than thirty-four hours, Global Hawk could fly from airfields as far away as Guam, spend half a day over North Korea, and go home again—freeing up tarmac space in closer air facilities. Global Hawk’s ability to conduct surveillance day or night is a major plus and its unblinking gaze will be invaluable in tracking enemy movements. Another less well known feature that will be important over North Korea: Global Hawk’s Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN) will provide a secure communications link between troops on the ground and close air support aircraft. In any conflict in the skies over North Korea, the U.S. Air Force will likely follow a familiar pattern. First, it will need to sweep the skies of enemy fighters—not a difficult prospect considering the decrepit state of the North Korean air force. Concurrent with that will be a campaign to shut down the country’s command and control and air defense systems, and finally a close air support and interdiction campaign designed to support friendly forces and locate and destroy enemy ground forces. Here are five weapons systems the air force would need for these missions in the next war in North Korea. B-2 Spirit Bomber North Korea’s air defenses are dense but outdated, relying on anti-aircraft guns and, with the exception of a S-300 long range SAM knockoff, fairly obsolete. Despite their obsolescence, most aircraft would need careful planning to avoid being shot down. Recommended: The Real Reason China Has Built a Massive Military  Read full article

South Korea Runs Anti-Terror Drills In PyeongChang Ahead Of Olympic Games

For South Korean national security officials, the memory of the 1987 bombing of a Korean Air Flight 10 months before the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul is still fresh. And with the PyeongChang Winter Olympics beginning Friday, officials are scrambling to prepare for nearly every conceivable terror scenario, from a terrorist taking hostages, to unleashing a chemical attack at one of the Olympic venues to a drone dropping an explosive from the sky.   The South Korean government isn't taking any chances: It has banned 36,000 people from entering the country due to security issues. The government has assembled a security force of 60,000 - including 50,000 soldiers. A law enforcement center has been set up in Seoul to monitor potential threats. South Korean marines have been training with their American counterparts to test their competence in the snow and cold, as CBS reports. "We've covered reconnaissance skills as well as critical combat skills in a cold-weather mountainous environment," U.S. Marine Captain Thomas Rigby told CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy. Despite the detente in North-South relations - and the decision to form a joint North-South women's ice hockey team, which played its first friendly match against Sweden yesterday.   While the US and South Korea have agreed to suspend military exercises until after the Games, the history of hostilities, combined with North Korea's accelerating progress toward building a reliable nuclear weapon, has made security services wary. One concern is how law enforcement would respond to a devastating cyber attack. The North is well known for its cyber warfare skills. South Korea has hired an independent cybersecurity firm to guard against attacks. After all, the North is only 50 miles from PyeongChang.

There’s Only One Way to Stop China from Dominating Asia (Think NATO)

Robert E. McCoy Security, Weaker nations in the region need to form a military alliance, so that in unity they acquire the means to face down Beijing. Beijing is relentless in its pursuit of territory that it feels once was a part of the Middle Kingdom. A lack of coordination in resisting this irredentist activity is having consequences, for ignoring it merely delays – and worsens – the problem. For example, if the law-abiding nations of the world had taken effective action in the South China Sea when China reemphasized its Nine Dash Line claims some years ago, we would not be faced with the outposts China has established on islets in the area – some replete with landing strips and associated defensive equipment. While it is building ever more islands in the territory its claims within the South China Sea, China is not ignoring the East China Sea. Just recently, Beijing flew warplanes into both the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) and the Japanese ADIZ there. China is escalating its forays into the seas around it, probing for reactions by others in the waters bearing its name. But not all Beijing’s incursions are military. Chinese fishing boats routinely violate South Korea’s waters – one fresh incident requiring Seoul’s coast guard to fire nearly 250 warning shots to move the intruding vessels out of the area. Beijing has even taken to threatening Taipei with invasion should American warships patrol the area and visit Taiwan in a show of support for that island nation. Ineffective responses In 2014, then-US president Obama stated that Senkaku Islands (known as the Diaoyus in China) are covered by the US-Japan Security Treaty, thus obligating Washington to ride to Tokyo’s rescue if Beijing makes any move to occupy the rocks by force.

Korean Air abduction: Family separated for 48 years

As 2017 comes to an end, we're looking back at some of the biggest stories of the year, through the eyes of five families. In our final report, we focus on tensions on the Korean Peninsula and families split between the north and the south. Hwang In-cheol, a man who has been separated from his father for nearly five decades, still hopes for his return. His father was among the 46 passengers and crew aboard Korean Air YS-11 that was hijacked into North Korea in 1969. Thirty-nine of the passengers were released under intense international pressure, but 11 of them, including Hwang's father, were not allowed to return, nor permitted to communicate with their families.
