North Korean Kim Jong-un has been testing weapons for a while now. Although he was warned to stop, he continues to do whatever he wants. The U.S. President Donald Trump has had it enough of Kim’s tests. He sent a message to North Korea with strategic bombers. North Korea wasn’t impressed and condemned the United States for this move saying they want to start a war on the Korean peninsula.

U.S. B-1B strategic bombers flew past the demilitarized zone after North Korea tested its third ballistic missile in three weeks Monday.
U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint drills Monday, the second exercise this month, reports the Wall Street Journal. North Korea called the move a “grave military provocation.” North Korea said the U.S. is pushing the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the “brink of war” with the introduction of B-1B Lancers.
The supersonic strategic bombers, deployed from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, are long-range, multi-mission aircraft capable of reaching Korea in 2.5 hours. The U.S. has maintained a continuous bomber presence in the region for decades as part of American deterrence posturing. North Korea often accuses the U.S. of preparing for nuclear strikes against it, even though B-1B bombers are no longer nuclear capable.
The recent flyby “clearly proves that their talk about ‘dialogue’ is nothing but hypocrisy to disarm the DPRK and their wild ambition to eliminate the DPRK with nukes remains unchanged even a bit,” the Korean Central News Agency said in response to the actions of the U.S. Air Force.
If Kim Jong-un continues to do missile tests, then he should get a taste of his own medicine. He was warned a couple of times to stop with the missile tests, but it looks like that he’s preparing to go to war. Even if he attacks South Korea or maybe the United States, it wouldn’t take long for these countries to fight back.
