(AP) North Korea's leader says his rocket forces are ready "to settle accounts with the U.S." in response to U.S. nuclear-capable B-2 bombers joined military drills with South Korea.

Kim Jong Un's comments in a meeting with senior generals early Friday are part of a rising tide of threats meant to highlight anger over the drills and recent U.N. sanctions over Pyongyang's nuclear test.

State media says Kim signed a rocket preparation plan and ordered rockets on standby to strike the U.S. mainland, South Korea, Guam and Hawaii.

Many analysts say they've seen no evidence that Pyongyang's missiles can hit the U.S. mainland. But it has capable short- and mid-range missiles.

Despite the rhetoric, a lucrative North Korean industrial plant operated with South Korean know-how is running normally.
