美 전략사령부 '핵전력 과시' 영상 공개... 대북 정찰 강화

Could it be Washington's silent warning to North Korea from to stay on the diplomatic path?
With Pyeongyang's unilateral year-end deadline looming... U.S. Strategic Command has released a video on its official social media page on Sunday displaying the country's nuclear force.
Kim Ji-yeon reports.
From an underground missile base, the tip of an inter-continental ballistic missile appears.
With a sudden boom, the ICBM blasts off into the sky.
This is the U.S.' Minuteman-3... which can fly 13-thousand kilometers and can reach Pyeongyang from the U.S. mainland in just 30 minutes.
At sea, an enormous nuclear submarine slips under the waves.
After inserting the coordinates, a submarine-launched ballistic missile bursts through the water's surface.
This is the Tridant-2... which can carry up to 12 nuclear warheads on a single missile... and boasts a destructive force one thousand times stronger than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima toward the end of World War II.
The video cuts to a B-2 Spirit and a B-52 bomber take off.
The B-2 Spirit flies into the enemy's air defense zone... then drops 16 nuclear bombs.
The stealth bomber can carry up to 31 tons of bombs... halfway around the world... conduct a nuclear attack and return to base.
The three types of nuclear weapons were initially unveiled in 2017 when tensions between Pyeongyang and Washington were at their peak.
The United States is closely watching North Korea's movements amid speculation of provocations after the regime warned it might give the U.S. a "Christmas gift."
The U.S. flew yet another surveillance aircraft over the Korean peninsula on Tuesday... according to private military aviation tracker Aircraft Spots.
It tweeted... a U.S. E-8C airborne early warning and control aircraft... dubbed the Joint Stars... was spotted... for the first time in three days.
The aircraft has the ability to detect, track and hand-off targeting information on enemy forces on the ground.
