TRUMP THREATENS NORTH KOREA WITH ‘FIRE AND FURY THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN BEFORE’ IF IT WILL ATTACK GUAM
- President Donald Trump told the country that any threat to the U.S. would be met with ‘fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before’
- North Korea said it is ‘carefully examining’ a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles
- The 33-year-old Kim Jong Un was lashing out at a U.S. push to drain him of the hard currency he needs to develop his nuclear program that Russia and China reluctantly signed on to last weekend.
( Daily Mail ) Two U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers from the military base in Guam participated in a strategic bilaterial mission with South Korea and Japan hours before North Korea revealed it was considering a plan to fire missiles at Guam.
The 10-hour mission from Guam’s Andersen Air Force Base took place on Monday and was the first for the aircraft and crews recently deployed from South Dakota’s Ellsworth Air Force Base to support U.S. Pacific Command’s Continuous Bomber Presence missions, Pacific Air Forces Public Affairs stated.
‘How we train is how we fight and the more we interface with our allies, the better prepared we are to fight tonight,’ one of the pilots with the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron B-1 said.
The crews practiced intercept and formation training, which gave them an opportunity to improve their combined capabilities and tactical skills.
‘These flights with Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) demonstrate solidarity between Japan, ROK and the U.S. to defend against provocative and destabilizing actions in the Pacific theater,’ according to a release from the Air Force.
The bombers flew in the vicinity of Kyushu, Japan, the East China Sea, and the Korean peninsula. The U.S. released photos of the mission late Tuesday – seemingly in response to North Korea’s threat to strike Guam.
North Korea said it is ‘carefully examining’ a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles. That threat happened just hours after President Donald Trump told the country that any threat to the U.S. would be met with ‘fire and fury.’
