Chinese bombers on high alert over North Korean situation
US defence official tells CNN aircraft being brought full readiness

Chinas air force has put its land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers on high alert in response to a potential situation in North Korea, a US defence official has been quoted as saying.
The moves to bring an extraordinary number of Chinese military aircraft to full readiness were part of an effort to reduce the time to react to a North Korea contingency, the defence official told CNN.
The remarks come amid ongoing tensions on the Korean peninsula. President Donald Trump has praised Chinas stepped-up efforts to combat the North Korean menace, telling a news conference some very unusual moves have been made over the last two or three hours.

Bombers might be on high alert, but the fighters would be on higher alert, at least by a few thousand feet.

It seems more like a preparation for war against South Korea and ourselves should we decide to do something to control the North.

OMG the world goes mad
Here’s a scenario
China hits North Korea with cruise missiles.
China immediately condemns America for the attack.
China invades North Korea to stop American Imperialism.
Kim Jong-un mysteriously wakes up dead one morning.
China declares that the imperialists have been stopped at the border by the brave North Korean and Chinese forces.
Putin asks “What the fick just happened here?”
Trump replies “I didn’t know about it until I saw it on CNN”.
What good are bombers unless they’re aimed at the South?
I like it.
