Just days before President Trump arrives in South Korea, the U.S. Air Force is conducting drills over the Korean peninsula.

The U.S. flew B-1 bombers over South Korea on Thursday, while accompanied by South Korean and Japanese fighter jets.

North Korean state media called the exercise “practice” for a surprise nuclear attack, although that was quickly disproved.

The U.S. has maintained an active military presence near the Korean border ahead of President Trump’s visit to the region next week.

National Security advisor H.R. McMaster says the president is well aware of the significance of the trip.

“The president recognizes that we’re running out of time and will ask all nations to do more…In particular the president will continue to call on all responsible nations., especially those with the most influence over North Korea, to isolate the North Korean regime economically and politically,” announced McMaster.

An Air Force spokesperson says the flyover was planned in advance, and was not in response to any event.

    Yes…a demonstration. A deliberate act of defiance, such as nuking the f-ck out of MR. T.

    Why wouldnt the NK dictator just push the red button while Trump is in South Korea..If he feels threatened he could react poorly and do something stupid.

      …I’m sure Trump is sweating that, as is his entourage.
      Oh, well.
      You’d never feel a thing; there are thousands of worse ways to go.

      • USA#1

        I didn’t see Mr. Trump of Melania sweating at all.
        Stop bs.

  • It will be at night. It will be Superior Firepower. No ground troops. Seven days, tops.
    Saddam and his #3 army went in 31 days.
    Maybe the little munchkin wasn’s paying attention in that class of warfare.
    We aren’t playing games. This is not the obama admin.

      Trump will kill everything that moves

      • USA#1

        And if doesn’t move too.

    the fundamental way to solve its problem is letting S. Korean take over N. Korea, or let Japan develop its own armed forces to take care of the entire Asia.

    • Mark

      Japan against China? Right.

      • badass

        100% on our side

    • HERE to ETERNITY

      LET ?

      • badass

        yes, because we controlled all those nukes….

        • HERE to ETERNITY

          whatever that means…
          hoho
          nothing FUNDAMENTAL in South Korea taking over the North. Only through diplomacy, if ever.
          Letting ??
          You are completely out of touch with ..this here.. sittchywashun.
          …and, JAPAN at one time dominated the EAST and Southeast before the last war. Never again.
          CHINA is here, forever now, the dominate military/political force in the EAST.
          You’re funny………..

          • badass

            you’re 100% out of touch about china, they even required their citizens to register to make any purchase of kitchen knives…..u really think that regime is a solid one???
            get lost now…or go back where you belong to, Red china.
            go to Japan then you’ll realize what is the Japan now!

            Your thoughts are so disconnected and discombobulated I cannot decipher them. What in the sam-hill are you talking about or attempting to answer? Begin again with the original thread you …believe …you are answering, then we may proceed. What the f-ck.

          • USA#1

            discombobulated????
            Choosing these words doesn’t make you right. You are peeing TOTALLY OUT OF THE CAN

          • HERE to ETERNITY

            just…just move around

  • DannyBoy

    You’re probably right and it will then be the END for them swiftly and Biggly

  • HERE to ETERNITY

    The North Koreans would NEVER see the actual delivery systems.
    The B-1B’s are not used for nuke delivery.
    We use stealth and low lying under-the-radar applications for that.
    KIM cannot help himself.
    He WILL make a demonstration during Trump’s visit.
