Posted on 11/28/2010 8:59:07 PM PST by ErnstStavroBlofeld
The Air Force stands ready to respond if hostilities between North Korea and South Korea escalate, the service's top uniformed officer said, but American fighter jets remained at their normal alert status a day after a North Korean artillery attack.
The North fired artillery shells at the island of Yeonpyeong on Tuesday, killing two people and dramatically raising tensions between American-allied South Korea and the nuclear-armed north.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz, in a meeting with reporters later that morning, said his service has plenty of firepower in the region and listed the bases from which the service could send planes for a response: Osan Air Base and Kunsan Air Base in South Korea, Kadena Air Base on Okinawa, bases on mainland Japan and bases in the Pacific.

America does not need to get involved in anymore conflicts in the world.WHY???We are B-R-O-K-E!
We are ready. We just need the okay.
It will not come from high.
We have a mutual defense treaty with South Korea and we have 37,000 troops(USKF). We are obliged by treaty to come to their assistance.
Obama has more important scores to settle on the basketball court.
I’m hoping the B-2’s are already airborne, loaded with bunker busters, and that we have hard intel on the family Kim’s whereabouts, updated hourly.
One “Palace” attack will clear up Kim Jong Dumbass’s irregularity right away.
May the Schwartz be with you...
They are probaby out of their protective shelters and getting ready.
Do we still have any BLU-82s in inventory??
Bunker busters are great, but i wanna drop a bunch on BLU-82s on Pyongyang!!
OH PLEASE PLEASE... Can I?
They come down so quiet on their little parachute and then go .... BOOM!!!!
The BLU-82 was retired in 2008 and replaced with the more powerful MOAB.
madly googling “MOAB” now thanks!!
Ok done. Yes the “MOAB” will do nicely.
Oh, and is that “Waverider” thingy ready to go yet???
If not... tell the slide rule boys to get on the stick!!
Oh crap, the crafty North Koreans have deployed a new “mouse click weapon”......
I KEEP REPLYING TO MYSELF!!!!! I’m hit!, I’m hit
I hope anybody except Obuma answers the phone at 3 in the morning.
We and the United Nations are still in a state of war against North Korea. There was merely a ceasefire in 1953.
Last year, North Korea unilaterally repudiated the ceasefire and declared they are again at war with S. Korea and the U.S. So we could technically nuke them right now.
We could do it physically as well but I believe a well placed rocket into Ill’s bedroom may stop the bullshit.
