I just hope the brinkmanship ends and tensions reduce. A war with NK will not be reports of a few casualties here and there. IED’s and such. Both sides could lose thousands daily. Mass artillery and human wave attacks are key parts of NK military doctrine. Perhaps our President can manage this peacefully. We would all like to see NK become a better country, but that won’t come easily.
(CNN) — The United States said Thursday it flew stealth bombers over South Korea to participate in annual military exercises amid spiking tensions with North Korea.
The B-2 Spirit bombers flew more than 6,500 miles from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri to South Korea, dropping inert munitions there as part of the exercises, before returning to the U.S. mainland, the U.S Forces in Korea said in a statement.
The mission by the planes, which can carry both conventional and nuclear weapons, “demonstrates the United States’ ability to conduct long range, precision strikes quickly and at will,” the statement said.
The U.S. military’s announcement earlier this month that it was flying B-52 bombers over South Korea to participate in the routine exercises prompted an angry reaction from the regime of Kim Jong Un, which has unleashed a torrent of threats in the past few weeks.
