North Korea: US 'begging' for war with 'largest ever' joint aerial drill
Tensions were on the rise Sunday ahead of the largest ever U.S.
The 5-day drill, dubbed Vigilant Ace, will involve more than 230 warplanes from both sides, including 6 U.S. F-22 Raptors, and 6 F-35s - some of the air forces' most advanced fighter jets.

Graham said he has had extensive discussions with the Trump administration about the situation.
Mr Kim's factory visit saw him thank workers who had built the tyres for the huge vehicle used to transport the tested Hwasong-15 missile this week, which had prompted a public rally and fireworks in Pyongyang as the country continued to flout global sanctions. "Not to contain it".
Agencies who have to execute those policies, and we've done that, and with all that time we've saved mulling about tactical details we've established a very strong foundation, the foundation of strategy clearly articulated objectives for the main national security challenges we're facing now. "The Chinese are trying, but ineffectively", he said.
