South Dakota Airmen Team Up With South Korean, Japanese Counterparts

South Dakota Airmen Team Up With South Korean, Japanese Counterparts”

Just a month before a squadron of B1-B lancers, B52's and B2-Spirit Stealth bombers conducted training exercises in and around the skies of Guam and the Marianas leading North Korea to release a statement saying they will "whet more sharply the treasured sword of nuclear weapons of justice" and "all the US military bases in the operational theatre in the pacific including Guam will face ruin in the face of all-out and substantial attack to be mounted by the army of the DPRK".

"The U.S. has maintained a regular bomber presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific since 2004 and this mission demonstrated our continued ironclad commitment to regional allies".

Charfauros in his statement Wednesday morning urged calm and said defenses are in place on Guam and its neighboring Pacific islands for threats such as North Korea.

The people of Guam woke up Thursday to another pointed threat from Pyongyang, which vowed to complete a plan to attack waters near the island by mid-August - adding a timeline to a threat from a day earlier that North Korea would create an "enveloping fire" around Guam.

"I think what the president was doing was sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong-un would understand", he said.

Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman Roh Jae-cheon told a media briefing South Korea was prepared to act immediately against any North Korean provocation, although the military had not spotted any unusual action in the North indicating provocation. However it has for the most part refrained from commenting on the possibility of a USA pre-emptive strike against North Korea, even though such action would likely provoke a deadly counter attack against the South.

The newfound attention also has sparked discussion about Guam's relationship with the United States as well as messages of support. "It's very important to maintain U.S. deterrent power as the security situation in the region is extremely severe", he added.
