Donald Trump makes bombers fly to North Korea

Thursday, August 31st, 2017 | World News

After the latest test of a medium-range bomb through North Korea, the US is demonstrating military strength and sending two strategic long-distance bombers to the near-by Korean border.

The US Air Force has sent two B-1B bombers and four F35B multi-purpose combat aircraft to South Korea, a defense ministry spokesman said in Seoul. Thus, they practiced their attacks against the north-eastern Gangwon province, along with South Korean fighters.

As a warning signal to North Korea, the US had already in the past several bombers flying over South Korea. The Boeing B-1B Lancer is a "conventional" bomber. Originally designed for the transport of nuclear weapons, the B-1 was later upgraded accordingly. The B-1B supersonic aircraft returned to their base on the US Pacific island of Guam after the joint exercise. In addition to Japan, South Korea is the most important ally of the USA in the region.

North Korea had fired a medium-range missile on the north of Japan on Tuesday and thus harsh international criticism. The UN Security Council unanimously condemned the maneuver as "outrageous". US President Donald Trump also condemned the test, emphasizing that "all options" are on the table.
