According to a North Korean Foreign Ministry’s statement, North Korea threatened to destroy all U.S. military bases in the Pacific Operations region if the United States takes an “insane step” against them.
According to North Korea’s statement, “the Korean peninsula is entering a very dangerous stage because of the continuous US intrigues to increase the capacity of its nuclear weapons aimed at the DPRK.”
In case the United States … dares to take an insane step, all the US military bases in the Pacific Operations region, including the island of Guam, will not escape destruction by our army’s comprehensive and real attack,” the RIA Novosti statement says..
Multiple B-1 bombers and more than 300 US Air Force personnel arrived at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam to replace a B-52 squadron on Monday.
On Wednesday, three United States Air Force bombers – the B-52, B-1 and B-2 participated in an integrated operation in the South China Sea called operation Continuous Bomber Presence, according to a U.S. Pacific Command statement.
The goal of the United States is to continuously have nuclear-capable bombers in the Pacific in order to deter aggression and counter any threats if necessary. North Korea claims that the United States is conducting joint military drills to prepare for an attack on North Korea.
