The massive display of offensive capability along with missile defense, in and around the Korean Peninsula, including the flights of nuclear capable B-2 stealth bombers, is an absolute necessity for South Korea, Japan, and United States as we work to assure that millions of innocent lives are defended and that this offensive capability is able to survive a first strike by North Korea
North Korea’s enigmatic leader, Kim Jong-un, seems intent on taking tensions on the Korean Peninsula to unprecedented new heights with each passing day. After weeks of bombastic warmongering and public proclamations threatening to destroy the South and annihilate the United States, Pyongyang has now proclaimed that a “state of war” exists between the North and the South.
Following North Korean escalating tension with the South, Washington is stepping up warning. Today the Air Forces' Strategic Command said it is sending two B-2 Spirit bombers for a long-duration, round-trip training mission from Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., to South Korea, as part of the ongoing bilateral Foal Eagle training exercise.
The United States Air Force began flying B2 and B-52 bombers over South Korea, amid rising tensions with North Korea, Pentagon officials said today. Pentagon press secretary George Little said one B-52 flew over South Korea on Friday, March 8 and another mission is scheduled to fly tomorrow.
