It may not look like much, but the operation pictured above is heightening tensions on the Korean peninsula and even caused the North Korean government to declare an end to the armistice which concluded the Korean war.  Operation Key Resolve is a joint training exercise between the U.S. and South Korean armed forces that began last week and is scheduled to continue through March 21.  In the past the military released a barrage of photos during the annual exercise, but this time the picture above is one of the only snapshots of the goings on.
