US Bombers And Fighter Jets Fly Close To North Korea In Display Of Force
US Pentagon has confirmed that American bombers have flown close to North Korea’s east coast to demonstrate the military options available to defeat any threat.It said the flight was the farthest north of the demilitarised zone between the Koreas that any US fighter jet or bomber had flown in the 21st Century. Tensions have risen recently over Pyongyang’s nuclear programme. “This mission is a demonstration of US resolve and a clear message that the president has many military options to defeat any threat,” it said in a statement.
“We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the US homeland and our allies.” The flight follows a week of heated rhetoric between the leaders of both countries – after Mr Trump’s UN comments, Mr Kim called him “mentally deranged” and “a dotard”.Photo Credit: Getty
