The U.S. military conducted another show of force to North Korea on Wednesday as long-range B-1 bombers flew a nighttime mission over the Sea of Japan accompanied by Japanese and South Korean fighter aircraft.

"Thus far, the suspected North Korean actions are consistent with a desire to demonstrate a deterrent capability rather than a prelude to an unprovoked first-strike in cyberspace; however, North Korea linked actors are bold, have launched multiple cyber attacks created to demonstrate national strength and resolve, and have little concern for potential discovery and attribution of their operations", FireEye researchers said in a blog.

The warplanes first conducted a simulated air-to-ground missile drill over the waters east of the Korean Peninsula and then flew over South Korea and conducted the same drill over the waters west of the peninsula, the South Korean military said.

North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth and biggest nuclear test in recent weeks in defiance of U.N. sanctions as it races towards its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.

A Russian lawmaker who recently visited Pyongyang told media that North Korea is preparing to test a ballistic missile that can strike the U.S. west coast.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday appeared to confirm he had North Korea in mind last week when he described a gathering of military leaders as "the calm before the storm". Robert Gates, who served as Secretary of Defense for almost five years during the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations, said on October 9 that "at a number of different points I have to confess in reading the President's tweets that I wish Twitter had never been invented", the daily The Australian reported on October 10.

But the contingency plan for the South's special forces was stolen, he said, as well as details about annual joint military drills with the United States and information on key military facilities and power plants.

On Tuesday, Mr Trump met with Defence Secretary James Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Joe Dunford to discuss a "range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression", according to the White House.

USA officials have voiced their concern that Kim Jong-un's nation could launch cyber attacks on American infrastructure.

"We strongly urge North Korea and the United States to stop their bellicose posturing and seriously think about a peaceful solution", it said.

"There is an urgent need for the military to change and update parts that were stolen by North Korea", Lee said.

He added that North Korea would not rule out "the use of the most extreme measures in response".

In a surprising sign of weakness, the commentary also says that if North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would join the United States in the Korean Peninsula it would "change the balance of forces" against it.
