Skip to comments.US Secretly Deploys B-1 Strategic Bombers, E-6 "Doomsday" Planes Near North Korea

First the US fanfared the placement of two F-22 Raptors in the Osan airbase of South Korea. Then it demonstratively launched a B-2 stealth bomber on a training mission over a South Korean gunnery range. Then it deployed an anti-ballistic missile defense system to Guam and positioned two guided-missile destroyers in the waters near Korea. And now, courtesy of the Aviationist, we learn that the Pentagon has escalated once more in an ongoing cat and mouse game with North Korea, of who blinks first, and dispatched several B-1 ("Bone") Lancer strategic long-range bombers to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. What is different this time, however, is that unlike the previous very public and widely trumpeted reciprocal escalation steps, this particular deployment has been kept secret from the public (at least the broader public), "a fact that could be the sign that the U.S. is not only making symbolic moves (as the above mentioned ones), but it is preparing for the worst scenario: an attack on North Korea."

“Paging Dr. Strangelove... please pick up the red phone”.
discussing the Doomsday machine]
President Merkin Muffley: “How is it possible for this thing to be triggered automatically and at the same time impossible to untrigger”?
Dr. Strangelove: “Mr. President, it is not only possible, it is essential. That is the whole idea of this machine, you know. Deterrence is the art of producing in the mind of the enemy... the FEAR to attack. And so, because of the automated and irrevocable decision-making process which rules out human meddling, the Doomsday machine is terrifying and simple to understand... and completely credible and convincing”.
B-1 is not as sexy as the Stealth planes, but it is a ground hugging munitions delivery horse.
The view of and vibration from one of them making a night take-off with the power poured on is awesome. Absolutely awesome power. I have seen them under those circumstances at Dyess.
And they can carry the payload.
That’s funny right there.
Nice...really criminal how Truman stopped MacArthur from freeing ALL of Korea.
Oooooou, somebody (or plural) should be quaking in their boots.
2. Intimidation factor.
Well if they’re reporting it, it’s not much of a secret now, is it?
I expect Obama’s MSM will be soon be claiming that Obama, and the democrats, averted a Nuclear war and saved millions of lives.
I dont know why they would deploy the B-1.One of our subs could smoke the whole miserable country before breakfast.
Smoke what? Other than Pyongyang the country is rural. We gonna nuke a rice paddy?
Oops, guess the secret’s out.
They must have military targets spread out over their territory.
Damn, I am so sorry.
I wasn’t supposed to read that article—it’s a secret.
“B-1’s to Guam. Somebody is getting ready for something.
Well, on the bright side, they weren’t gift wrapped. “
You have the Won pegged, it is surprising, isn’t it. Much of what I’ve read emphasizes the perception that Obama is back peddling as fast as his legs will go. Besides, this weekend is the final four and nothing will be allowed to interfere!!!
“E-6 “Doomsday” Planes Near North Korea”
Kinda sounds like they aren’t laughing at the possibility of an EMP attack, like some in here have been doing.
A Trident SSBN could destroy North Korea from its homeport.
The US is ruled by a cult of personality as well. The only difference between the US and NK is we have food in the stores. The US is just as degenerate and immoral as any of the worst fundamentalist or marxist shadow puppet regimes currently available anywhere
Not so secret now..... eh?
B1’s can hit the extensive tunnel system in NK. Doomsday “looking glass” 707’s can fly in after an emp, and still function.
If this is true, I believe these chess pieces are being moved in for China and Russia to observe. To keep ‘em honest. That may be why the radio transmissions were in the open.
