SEOUL, South Korea (AP) The U.S military says two nuclear-capable B-2 bombers have completed a training mission in South Korea amid threats from North Korea that include nuclear strikes on Washington and Seoul.

The statement Thursday by U.S. Forces Korea is an unusual confirmation. It follows an earlier U.S. announcement that nuclear-capable B-52 bombers participated in ongoing U.S.-South Korean military drills.

Hmmmm...
This strikes me as strange, because in ALL the other missions for the B2, they flyout of Missouri, non-stop, no landing, refuel in midair, conduct their bombing run, and RETURN TO MISSOURI.

Stupid Stupid Stupid

You never show a weapon until you intend to use it.

Stealth Nuke Capable Bomber? Unnessary opportunity to compromise technology......

Stupid Stupid Stupid

Or may be it is intentional to compromise the military, that is another possibility.

That's why they fly out of Missouri and back to Missouri and NEVER land anywhere else in the world.

Nuclear-capable? Even an A-4 is nuclear capable.

The only reason they flew them is because they can’t get an aircraft carrier to do a fly-by (yet).

Needless risk. This isn’t the original purpose of these bombers; they were built for a threat that no longer exists over vast vast expanses of hard-to-surveil countryside, not in congested N/S korea..

Station them in S. Korea....yeah, let them get up to altitude before hitting NK, see what an L-band (or lower frequency) radar guided SAM will do to them.

One big ass mistake, especially when the NKs have spies in SK to let them know when these expensive targets take off.

That is what I heard they did. Took off from MO and returned to MO nonstop. Some 13,000 miles round trip.

This is about sending a message - both to South Korea (assurance) and North Korea (watch it). Similar to announcing that a USN Boomer is leaving port to go near the coast of XYZ country. Only reason for saying it is to send a message, since it could all be done covertly if the real need was there.

Yeah, but there was some fear that Guam might tip over, so they moved them to Missouri... :)
