Yonhap News: US Deploys B-1B Bombers

SEOUL, March 16 (Yonhap) -- North Korea on Thursday condemned South Korea and the United States for "escalating nuclear attack threats," citing the participation of U.S. strategic bombers and the nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson in joint military drills in South Korea.

North Korea's official news agency, KCNA, said a fleet of B-1B Lancer bombers from the Andersen air base on Guam made a stealth flight over the Sangdong firing range of South Korea on Monday for about an hour on a nuclear bomb-dropping drill aimed at making preemptive strikes at major targets of the DPRK. DPRK is an acronym for Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.

Nothing will happen before the complete installation of THAAD. Except if Pyongyang feel to be trapped with that and prefer to take the initiative. Who knows with this crazy guy?

Well if I were Kim, I'd consider my options. .

1. Have such an impactful nuclear test that wakes up everyone and brings them back to diplomacy (ie missile launch that has nuclear war head and detonates in the sea, but far away from Japan)... unlikely
2. Move all troops to border and have them ready to enter the Tunnels. .not enough
3. Be nice and don't provoke too much. .. Most likely

A pre-emtive strike would first occure on all north korean artillary within range from the capital...

Then drop moab bombs on all nuclear bunkers or facilities...

Then it would turn into a conventional ground war...

It would need to happen soon before china catches up with military...

South korea is economically able to absorb the north and unifi the country...

Tick tock...

With this guy Kim nobody knows, so in a way it's all talk. It really is one of those roll the dice deals.
