U.S. Army Trains Thousands of Soldiers for Tunnel Warfare in N. Korea

The U.S. Army is stepping-up efforts to train soldiers in tunnel warfare in preparation for a possible clash with North Korea.
The Army made the announcement Tuesday amid rising tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Officials have warned that North Korea is honeycombed with 5,000 tunnels often reaching hundreds of feet underground, and are protected from aerial bombing.
The tunnels can be used to move and hide troops or chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons.
The Army plans to expand training to thousands of troops, including two airborne divisions.
The announcement comes as the administration considers a first-strike “bloody nose option” against the rogue state.
