Stealth bomber with nuclear capabilities flew over undisclosed parts of Pacific region ahead of president’s visit to Japan and South Korea.
Relations with North Korea remain stressed as President Trump plans to visit Japan and South Korea.
Based on Fox News, a B-2 stealth bomber, loaded with nuclear weapons, flew around the Pacific region. The military says the flight was to “familiarize air crew with air bases and operations in different geographic combatant commands, which allows them to maintain a high state of readiness and proficiency.”
The flight was a test run in anticipation of President Trump’s visit to the region in November. The military also mentioned it was “a visible demonstration of commitment to our allies and enhancing regional security.”
Based on Japan Times, the flight itself signifies how strained relations have become. The last time a US stealth bomber was flown close to either North or South Korea was practically four years ago.
Military professionals have also noted that if the U.S. were to strike North Korea with nuclear weapons, stealth bombers, like the B-2, would be the method of delivery. Indicating that this practice run demonstrates the military is preparing for the worst.
Many are hesitant of President Trump’s visit to the Pacific region, anticipating North Korea to take advantage of the President’s vulnerability and proximity. In recent months North Korea has been increasingly testing its nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile capabilities.
Last month it carried out its most powerful nuclear test to date and fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles over Japanese territory. Kim Jong-un had also made the threat to strike Guam with “enveloping fire.” There have also been declarations by the rogue nation that they plan to test a huge hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean.
The U.S. has refused to flinch, sending B-1B bombers from Guam to carry out exercises with Japanese and South Korean Air Forces in the area. President Trump’s visit to the Pacific region is also observed as a sign that the U.S. refuses to be ruffled.
South Korea has welcomed the U.S. military presence with open arms, hoping, based on an anonymous government source, “the U.S. will expand its missions on the Korean Peninsula without any concerns over issues of maintenance, fuel supplies and so forth.”
Based on Fox News, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis gave a strict warning to North Korea during his Asia tour, “Make no mistake, any attack on the United States or our allies will be defeated, and any use of nuclear weapons by the North will be met with a massive military response that is effective and overwhelming.”
Mattis explained that North Korea was rapidly becoming a global threat “North Korea has accelerated the threat that it poses to its neighbors and the world through its illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear weapons programs.”
And given this threat, the U.S. would not permit North Korea to maintain nuclear arms. “I cannot imagine a condition under which the United States would accept North Korea as a nuclear power.”
Though tensions run high, it is not likely that Kim would be foolish enough to attack President Trump during his trip. While Kim has remained stubborn in the face of threats and shows of force, even he should be aware that attacking a U.S. president would be observed as an act of war that would bring swift retribution to him and his country.
The practice flights by U.S. stealth bombers in the pacific region are proof enough that the U.S. is ready to attack North Korea should it prove mandatory. Let’s hope it does not.
