SEOUL, South Korea (AP) In a show of force following weeks of North Korean bluster, the U.S. on Thursday took the unprecedented step of announcing that two of its nuclear-capable B-2 bombers dropped munitions on a South Korean island as part of joint military drills.
U.S. Forces Korea said in a statement that the B-2 stealth bombers flew from a U.S. air base in Missouri and dropped munitions on a South Korean island range before returning home. It was unclear whether America's stealth bombers were used in past annual drills with South Korea, but this is the first time the military has announced their use.
The statement follows an earlier U.S. announcement that nuclear-capable B-52 bombers participated in the joint military drills.

A waste of money.
If they had overflown N. Korea that would have really delivered a message.
another idiot headline writer or idiot editor. no doubt graduates of overpriced indoctrination centers aka college (most of them, not all)
the verb SENDS makes folks infer the bombers were moved to bases in SK. they flew from MO did their fly bye bye (aside how would anyone know? ha ha) and returened to MO.
The fat, immature turd who supposidly runs North Korea is going to do the exact same thing Saddam did...talk himself into a nice hot shooting war. Hope we have the sense to just quickly nuke them back to the stone age and get it over quickly...no more Iraq's.
My suggestion would be that the B2 drop a large sand bag with an American Flag on the front lawn of the Nork whitehut (or equivalent there of). NO announcement, no warning, no comment. This would send a loud message.
