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."

Secret? We don’ need no steenkin’ secrets.
I have total confidence in DefSec Chuck Hagel. s/
They are good cruise missile launchers.
It is believed that North Korea cannot mobilize their army because of parts shortages and fuel issues.
Does Obammy know about this???
You have to have a liberal in the White House to take out NK...the peaceniks will mute their criticism of him after the war.
Somebody is getting ready for something, but it isn’t Obama, Kerry or Hagel.
Meanwhile, in the news, Guam tips over with addition of more US troops and planes there. Photos at 11.
NK has just completed wargames in the border region, where they created much hardship for the local civilians by clearcutting woodlands, eating local food supplies that can’t be replaced. Among their wargames were tunneling exercises.
One case of a starving soldier being beaten for stealing some rice and he retaliated and shot 5 officers.
I don’t know why they would deploy the B-1.One of our subs could smoke the whole miserable country before breakfast.
It’s “secret” because between the internet and the lame stream media we all know how to keep one! :p
Wow!!! That is some secret!!!!!!lol
PS. Is it still a secret?
IIRC The Bone no longer carries nukes. It was reconfigured some years ago to carry a plethora of convention weapons though I wonder does it carries bunker busters. Given the probability that young Kim and his entourage are living in bunkers the Bone makes sense. But do we have accurate intel. I do not see the haloed one going for anything less than a strike with stereotactic radiosurgical precision.
Kim is kinda begging to be assassinated by his own.
Uh, I suspect we do not have enough nuke subs active and deployed.
Dang! Now all our secrets are exposed!
Visible show of force?
Well, on the bright side, they weren't gift wrapped.
Um....ok. I gotta ask. How is it “secretly”?
It’s also a good carrier of the big bunker buster bombs.
