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.

The article never states what U.S. airbase the B-2s flew out of and then back “home” to. I think Obama isn’t blinking in the face of North Korean antics like the last three morons who held his job office previously.

They are also stationed in Guam. There was a B-2 that crashed when taking off back in 2008.
