We fly a few planes over our ally, South Korea, and North Korea goes crazy. They said our show of force to meet their show of force is a "reckless military provocation."
It's like the abusive husband who blames his wife for the beating he just gave her. It's like, "Don't make me come over there, America."
North Korean state media, like CNN, sharply criticized the United States on Sunday. In CNN's case, it's everything the President does even before he gets out of bed. In North Korea's case, it's our military.
Pyongyang didn't like our practice bombing sortie on the Korean peninsula. A commentary in the ruling party's Rodong Sinmun newspaper (the paper whose slogan is: "All the news we want to print) accused the U.S. of "reckless military provocations" after two USAF B-1B bombers dropped a load of inert bombs in a Saturday training session in South Korea, the country that isn't North Korea.
The comments, made in English by the state Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said the recent drill increased the threat of a nuclear war.
But that's like Kim Jong Un calling the kettle fat because the U.S./South Korea drill came just days after the North launched the ICBM, and with its capability of hitting Alaska, 'Homey don't play that.'
The two B-1B Lancer bombers flew from Anderson AFB in Guam and joined up with South Korean fighter jets--about a 2,000 journey. During the flight to South Korea, the bombers were joined by Japanese fighters. The mission took about 10 hours.
The Air Force called the mission a "demonstration of the ironclad U.S. commitment to our allies."
"North Korea's actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland," Gen. Terrence O'Shaughnessy, Pacific Air Forces commander said. "Let me be clear, if called upon, we are trained, equipped and ready to unleash the full lethal capability of our allied air forces."
And if that doesn't have Kim Jong Un having a fresh pair of skivvies delivered to his palace, it simply means he's too stupid to understand our superior power.
The U.S. will also be conducting a flight test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) in Kodiak, Alaska this month.
THAAD has proven to be 100 percent effective in taking out short- and intermediate-range missiles during target approach.
