ESCALATION: US Drops Bombs Near North Korean Border
This is really insane.
Two days after North Korea flew a missile over Japan, the United States and South Korea staged their own show of force with state-of-the-art stealth fighters Thursday.
Four US F-35B fighter jets joined two US B-1B bombers and four South Korean F-15 fighter jets in the joint US-South Korean flyover of the Korean Peninsula, an official with the South Korean air force told CNN.
The exercise was designed to "strongly counter North Korea's repeated ballistic missile tests and development of nuclear weapons," the official said.
In a statement, the air force said the US bombers flew out of Guam and four stealth fighter jets from a US Marine Corps base in Japan.
Kim Jong-un has responded by calling the bombings a ‘wild military acts of enemies’ and has ordered troops to be ready for ‘imminent war’ after US nuke-ready jets blitz North Korea border.
It should be remembered that Kim's missile launch over Japan was in response to wide-scale US/South Korean military exercises along the North Korean border.
So much for Trump the dealmaker. I really think you could talk Kim down by giving him a minor league basketball team. The kid loves basketball and wants respect.
Instead, we are on the edge of military actions.
