US Deploys 3 B-2 Stealth Bombers to Guam”

The U.S. military has deployed three B-2 nuclear-capable stealth bombers to Andersen Air Force Base in the U.S. territory of Guam, a move that comes as North and South Korea have cautiously re-established dialogue.

The Air Force last sent a lone B-2 bomber to Guam in October, but only for a few hours as part of a long-range training mission from its home base in Missouri.

The PACAF did not disclose the timing of the bombers' deployment on the island, which has strategic importance for the U.S. military in the wake of North Korean nuclear and missile threats.

"US strategic bombers regularly rotate through the Indo-Pacific region to conduct US PACOM-led (Pacific Command-led) air operations, providing leaders with deterrent options to maintain regional stability", the PAF wrote on its website.

Andersen Air Force Base, from which heavy bombers would be dispatched and logistics support could be centered, would play a key role in the event of conflict erupting on the Korean Peninsula.

The U.S. flew B-1B bombers from Guam over Korea a year ago in response to the North's provocations.

The U.S. Pacific Air Forces celebrated the arrival of the stealth bombers in a Facebook post, writing, "Don't they look awesome!".
