US bombers join jets from Japan, South Korea for training

US bombers join jets from Japan, South Korea for training”

"U.S. bombers and Republic of Korea fighters are just two of many lethal military options at our disposal", said Lt. Gen. Thomas Bergeson, the deputy commander of U.S. Forces Korea.

USA military officials described the mission Friday as a defensive show of force and unity from the three allied nations and said it demonstrated "the ironclad US commitment to our allies".

"North Korea's actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland, " General Terrence O' Shaughnessy, commander of US Pacific Air Forces, said in a statement.

In response, US and South Korean soldiers fired ballistic missiles simultaneously in a drill Wednesday, simulating an attack on the North's leadership "as a strong message of warning", the South's military said at the time.

Russian Federation and China drafted a roadmap based on "double freezing", meaning that North Korea would be offered to halt missile and nuclear activities in response for the cancellation of large-scale military exercises between South Korea and the US.

Left-leaning Moon condemned the launch and joined calls for tighter sanctions on Pyongyang.

"North Korea will call our bluff, the USA will draw back from using military force, and North Korea will continue to develop their nuclear program", Ross said. The United States condemned the move, firing warning missiles and vowing to hold the regime accountable at the United Nations. Other displays had been planned long in advance.

"I don't draw red lines", US President Donald Trump said Thursday in reaction to the North Korean ICBM test.

In the first part of Thursday's mission, the B-1s were joined by two Japanese F-15 fighters and carried out a cooperative mission over the East China Sea - an area both Japan and China claim as their own.

North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said its intercontinental ballistic missile is meant to overcome USA hostility and enable the North to "strike the very heart of the U.S.at any given time".

Later this month, the USA allegedly plans to proceed with plans to conduct a test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) ballistic missile defense system, according to a report by Fox News.

On the night after the launch, the US and South Korean militaries also conducted a joint exercise, launching short-range tactical missiles into the sea. A date of the test was not announced.

A U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer of the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron sits at Andersen Air Force Base on Friday in Guam before a bilateral mission with South Korean and Japanese jets.
