'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

Text Fwd: F-22 likely to join military drills with S. Korea

F-22 likely to join military drills with S. Korea

SEOUL, July 18 (Yonhap) -- The United States may dispatch its high-tech F-22 Raptor stealth fighter to the Korean Peninsula for the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea aimed at sending a warning message to North Korea for its continued provocative acts, a government source said Sunday.

"Chances are high that the F-22 fighter jet will take part in the South Korea-U.S. joint drills to be held in the East Sea within July, in which a U.S. aircraft carrier will also participate," the source said on the condition of anonymity. "The U.S. is considering the F-22's participation in the training."

In response to the March 26 deadly sinking of a South Korean warship caused by a North Korean torpedo attack that left 46 sailors dead, the allies have decided to conduct large-scale naval drills in the eastern waters of South Korea, along with an anti-submarine training in the Yellow Sea.

The exact dates for the exercises and other details will be decided at an unprecedented group meeting of foreign and defense ministers from the two sides in Seoul this week, officials said. The U.S. has already confirmed that it will send the nuclear-powered USS George Washington, which is stationed at the U.S. naval base in Yokosuka, Japan.

Another source also said that the upcoming drills will involve core forces of the U.S. Second Fleet and American troops stationed in Japan.

If the F-22 takes part in the training, it would mark the first time for the jet to be deployed in Korea.

From the base in Okinawa, the F-22, dubbed the "strongest fighter jet in existence," is reportedly capable of striking North Korea's main nuclear facilities in Yongbyon within half an hour after take-off.
