Trump sends B-52 bombers to South Korea

The Sun

DONALD Trump is sending nuclear bombers to the Korean peninsula as tensions in the region reach breaking point.

North Korea and the US have been teetering on the brink of war for months after Kim Jong-un carried out a series of controversial missile launches.

Earlier this week, trigger-happy Kim pushed his luck once more when he fired off four ballistic missiles into the seas near Japan.

Now US military chiefs are reportedly planning to fly in B-1 and B-52 bombers – built to carry nuclear bombs – to show America has had enough.

  1. We need to hold our own and be tough…We can’t keep being pushed around….We must support our friends.

  2. The real danger here is not an intentional attack by North Korea. Even they know that any kind of attack would lead to their destruction and regime change–I hope.

    Rather, the real danger here is a miscalculation by either the North or South that leads to a shooting incident that then spirals out of control.

    But another problem is it’s not entirely clear that the North Korean regime is a rational one, and hence, it is not entirely clear that they are deterrable. And that possible uncertainty could lead to a South Korean, Japanese, or US pre-emptive strike on the North.
