Is the US amassing B-1 strategic bombers near North Korea? Respected avionationst thinks so
Voice of America journalist Steve Herman tweeted, "Respected aviation blogger on possible movement of USAF B-1 squadron to Guam amid DPRK tension," and he linked to this article-
U.S. amassing B-1 strategic bombers near North KoreaOf course, there is more at the link.
It seems like Washington has taken Kim Jong Un threat seriously.
After moving two Langley’s F-22 Raptor stealth fighters to Osan airbase, in South Korea, launching a B-2 Spirit stealth bomber on a round-trip training mission over a South Korean’s gunnery range from the Continental U.S., and deploying THAAD anti-ballistic missile defense system to Guam, positioning two guided-missile destroyers in the waters near the Korean peninsula, the Pentagon has decided to strengthen its presence in the region by deploying several B-1 Lancer long range bombers to Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.
But, for the first time in the last few weeks, the deployment of the “Bones” to the Pacific atoll was not made public (at least, not yet), a fact that could be the sign that the U.S. is not only making symbolic moves (as the above mentioned ones), but it is preparing for the worst scenario: an attack on North Korea.
