  News Analysis: Stealth jets deployed to press North Korea
News Analysis: Stealth jets deployed to press North Korea: "WASHINGTON The deployment last week of 15 stealth fighters to South Korea, along with the severing of the U.S. military's only official interaction with North Korea, appears to be part of a push by the Bush administration to further isolate North Korea despite China's hesitation to join the effort.

North Korea, for its part, on Sunday called the stealth fighter deployment 'a risky prelude to war,' a term it has often used about U.S. military exercises.

Although senior Pentagon officials say the F-117 stealth fighters were part of the preparation for a long-planned training exercise, the show of force comes at a delicate moment both militarily and politically.

The deployment, confirmed by the Pentagon on Friday after several news reports, came just after the Defense Department said Wednesday that it was suspending the search for soldiers missing in action since the Korean War."
