U.S. Parades her Power by Sending B-2 Stealth Bombers over South Korea
Things are escalating quickly with the predictably hot-headed North Koreans who, in response to increased U.N. sanctions responding it its nuclear test last month, and the beginning of the annual South Korea –U.S. military drill, have shutdown their hotline used to arrange a passage for workers and goods through the Demilitarized zone.
As Fox New and the Associated Press report, North Korea claims it sees no need for communication “where a war may break out at any moment.”
Fox News reports that in Washington U.S. State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said North Korea’s “latest threat to cut off communication links coupled with its provocative rhetoric is not constructive to ensuring peace and stability on the peninsula.”
In other words, they’re talking smack and things could get ugly. Maybe that’s why for the Foal Eagle exercises, which began March 1 and end April 30, we’ve recently paraded our power by bringing out a couple B-2 Spirit bombers – the sort you aren’t supposed to be able to detect when they drop their packages. And they are capable of dropping both conventional and nuclear weapons.
It is believed that North Korea hasn’t mastered nuclear technology enough to affix a small enough nuclear warhead to mount a missile. That they are going in that direction, however, makes conflict inevitable. After all, North Korea has vowed to strike the U.S. with nuclear warheads.
