PacificSentinel: This statement shows just how stupid/naive the North Korean leadership is, while SOME of the exercises could be scraped or at least downsized, they will NEVER stop all-together, every army NEEDS to train, so there will always be joint military exercises, whether it's with the US or another country, that's just the nature of the military.
