As tensions with North Korea continue to escalate, the United States military is not backing down. Two bombers were flown over the Korean peninsula in a joint exercise with the South Korean and Japanese militaries.
B-1B Lancers took off from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam on Tuesday night to conduct the training missions near the Sea of Japan. It was the first time the B-1B Lancers were used for training at night with the Japan Air Self-Defense Force and Republic of Korea Air Force, according to Pacific Air Forces Public Affairs.
Maj. Patrick Applegate, of the U.S. Air Force’s 613th Air Operation Center said, “Flying and training at night with our allies in a safe, effective manner is an important capability shared between the U.S., Japan and the Republic of Korea and hones the tactical prowess of each nations’ aviator.”
This was a display of the alliance between the three nations in the face of North Korea’s continual push for its nuclear program. North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests and twice fired missiles over Japan. It’s imperative to work with Japan and South Korea to keep North Korean madman Kim Jong-un in line.

For over 20 years, United States presidents have been giving North Korea a free pass on its nuclear program and its unstable leaders. Those bad policies are over now that Trump is in the White House.
Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing. Policy didn't work!

President Trump isn’t allowing this to continue. His America First policy is making sure that Americans are protected from Kim Jong-un’s maniacal fantasies. He keeps applying military pressure on Pyongyang to make sure the madman knows that he is no match for the United States military!
Share this if you are glad President Trump is holding North Korea accountable!
