Russia and US Team Up Against North Korea

Both the United States and Russia sent nuclear-capable bombers on a mission near North Korea as tensions mount over dictator Kim Jong Un’s threats.

A U.S. B-2 stealth bomber flew from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri to the Pacific area over the weekend, according to The U.K. Sun.

U.S. Strategic Command said in a statement the long-range mission was carried out to “familiarize aircrew with air bases and operations in different geographic combatant commands, enabling them to maintain a high state of readiness and proficiency.”

The mission came just prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to Asia, assuring Japan and South Korea that the U.S. its committed to helping its allies defend itself against any threats from North Korea.

The statement referred to the mission as “a visible demonstration of commitment to our allies and enhancing regional security.”

The Russian Defense Ministry said both U.S. and Japanese fighter jets accompanied Russia’s missile-carrying bombers during flights over the Pacific.

“Two strategic bombers Tupolev-95MS of Russia’s Aerospace Force have carried out routine flights over international waters of the Sea of Japan and the western part of the Pacific Ocean,” a Russia spokesman said, according to The Sun.

“It means we hope that the U.S. will expand its missions on the Korean Peninsula without any concerns over issues of maintenance, fuel supplies and so forth,” an unidentified source told the South Korean Yonhap News Agency.

On Saturday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said North Korea’s continued commitment to launch a nuclear-capable missile has brought “a new urgency” to military and diplomatic efforts with South Korea.

“North Korea has accelerated the threat that it poses to its neighbors and the world through its illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear weapons programs,” Mattis said, as reported by CNN.

“I cannot imagine a condition under which the United States would accept North Korea as a nuclear power,” he added.

Trump has vowed that the U.S. will protect itself and its allies at all costs following several provocative tests and countless threats from the North Korean regime.

In September, Trump said the possibility of using military action against North Korea was not off the table.

“Military action would certainly be an option,” Trump said. “It would be great if something else could be worked out.”

Trump suggested that the U.S. didn’t want to use military force, but indicated the aggressive behavior from North Korea would not be tolerated for much longer.

“Each day, new equipment is delivered; new and beautiful equipment, the best in the world — the best anywhere in the world, by far,” Trump said, referring to the power of the U.S. military.

    so two armed- to- the-teeth with nuclear bombs countries want to prevent another country from having ONE bomb? Sounds fair to me.

    • Deert

      Neither Russia nor the US has threatened anyone with the use of nuclear weapons like Iran and NK. They don’t fly ICBMs over other countries.
      Both countries would prefer to exist, rather than be wiped out. In other words, the US and Russia are sane, and NK and Iran are insane. More than fair. Super-extra-fair.

        Heard of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Cuban Missile crisis, cold war brinkmanship……

        And you think YOU are sane?

        • Deert

          Off-topic and irrelevant.

          • NC91

            only to you

          • Hyrdr

            and me

        • Snufy

          What kind of idiot are you? Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended WWII. My dad was waiting shipboard to invade Japan. They were told to expect 80% casualties. Cuban Crisis was when Russia sent missiles there. NKorea keeps threatening to use it’s nuke missiles on America. If your neighbor kept pointing a gun towards you, would you be concerned? Get off the hard drugs, maggot.

          • NC91

            America didn’t just threaten to use nuclear weapons like North Korea does, THEY USED THEM

          • Debbie Benton

            To save American lives you fool .

          • NC91

            and the Koreans want theirs to save Korean lives, you fool

          • Hyrdr

            Save from what?

          • Hyrdr

            Likely before you were born and able to understand why. Apparently.

          • Debbie Benton

            You can not expect much from liberals . They are give the country a way types who wouldn,t fight for any thing but a free government hand out .

      Damn right it is fair. Their ruler is a lunatic. I would prefer he did not have a slingshot, let alone a nuclear warhead. Are you an idiot?

      • Patriot47

        “Are you an idiot?”

        Didn’t you read his post? He’s part of the KIM is just misunderstood faction. This could have been avoided but as usual, Democrats stopped the cure.

      • NC91

        is our Orange president sane? A COWARD who would not risk his own skin threatening to launch a world war?

        • Snufy

          You’re about the dumbest sob alive. You are completely without real reasoning.

          • Bud William

            If he is not the dumbest sob alive, he has to be next to the dumbest.

          • NC91

            Snufy is certainly the dumbest, and I would put you second (that’s a compliment)

          • NC91

            but you give NO reasons. Go on, try to REASON, dummy.

      • NC91

        read the comments I have written as replies to others. I can’t be bothered to repeat myself for another idiot like you.

    • Buckeye conservative

      You are totally wrong. The countries with the most bombs should be able to keep the idiots from beginning something that could destroy us all.

  • Kratz Leatherman

    Trying to equate Hiroshima to the NK situation is totally irrelevant. Truman saw what the US could expect for casualties if Japan was invaded. They tried to get Japan to surrender, and they refused. Ever seen some of the films of Japanese children, women, training to fight? Can you imagine how horrific it would have been to invade and see those civilians coming at you? They projected hundreds of thousands of American deaths, and hundreds of thousands of Japanese deaths.
    You really should do more reading before posting that shows you don’t know what you’re talking about. Noone wanted to use the bomb, but it did save lives on both sides.

    • NC91

      my point, which you missed, was that America has not only threatened to use nuclear weapons but has done so! .BTW many people have argued that the bombs were not necessary to end the war.

  • Debbie Benton

    I support President Trump even thou the lying media wants people to belief that most Americans dont support the President . I have seen many internet surveys that say other wise , and have voted in those surveys . Trump gets much higher numbers than the media wants to admit too. Unlike BOZO before him , Trump stands up to Kim , and the demorats and liberals cant stand it .

    • R.D.WYLIE

      I think TRUMP has the balls to do what has to be done and that little bastard in N.K. if SEAL TEAM
      6 gets him he is go as toast I hope they cut off his head and put it on a stick!
