Despite the preparation of a possible meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Washington is not refusing to deploy strategic bombers in the Korean Peninsula region, reports TASS Statement by the Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, General David Goldfin.




What we are doing militarily is a direct support of the pressure campaign (on the DPRK). The requirement that I could ensure the continuous forward presence of strategic bombers (in the Korean Peninsula region) has not changed. The requirement that I have the opportunity to transfer bombers (from permanent bases) at the request of the commander of the troops, or the US Secretary of State, or the Secretary of Defense, or the President, has not changed,
said Goldfin, answering agency questions.

We focus on maintaining the combat readiness required by the commander of the troops. Therefore, in reality, for us as a type of armed forces, at this level, absolutely no change has occurred,
He stressed.

Recall that in November last year, Goldfin announced that the US Air Force would maintain in the foreseeable future a permanent rotational presence of at least one type of strategic bombers on the island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean to ensure pressure on Pyongyang.

According to the general, “the B-52, B-2 and B-1 bombers will be on Guam on the basis of continuous rotation”. Aircraft B-1 able to fly to North Korea from Guam in less than 3 hours. Over the past months, Americans have arranged their flights over the Korean Peninsula on several occasions to demonstrate their strength.

    When will the crush finally break? In any case, this cannot go on forever. Dictate sooner or later, but leads to the opposite effect. And the attempt to dictate to the whole world is even more so.

      The dictatorship of the United States will be strengthened, not just because they increased the military budget.

    According to the general, "the B-52, B-2 and B-1 bombers will be in Guam based on continuous rotation."
    I would be surprised if they got them out of there, and what’s the news? The strategic place is Russia, China, North Korea practically within walking distance, the Americans put a lot of ordinary troops into the region, it’s quite logical that strategists will support them.

    In fact, when comparing a swan with a Lancer, they always indicate that Lancer is only a bomber recourse

    Well, and the title of the article? IN THE AREA OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA.. Damn, about 3500 km is the distance from the Korean Peninsula, and the heading is such that they seem to be based right there and I fly 5 minutes to the DPRK

    Well, our leadership has not yet completely gone crazy to send strategists there. Especially in Cuba, where in case of which they bang in 5 minutes ...

    And I, as I wrote above, liked the expression of the author of the article - THE AREA OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA. What kind of distance does he have when NOT IN THE AREA ??? 10000 km or more?
