For the first time since 2004, the US Air Force withdrew 5 strategic bombers from Guam without rotation


US sources report that the US Air Force strategic bombers are being withdrawn from a military base on the island of Guam. According to recent reports, five Stratofortress B-52H left the military base the other day.


This could be considered a standard procedure if, as had been the case since 2004, other strategic bombers landed at the airbase as part of the “rotation”. But, for the first time in 16 years, no rotation has been reported. The places that were located at the US Air Force base in Guam remained empty.

This fact was called in the American media "the probable refusal of the command from the mission of a permanent military presence of strategic bombers." And in itself such information aroused suspicion among American experts.

According to the latest information, on April 16, five US strategic bombers returned to a permanent base located in North Dakota. This is Minot Air Base.

US strategic command spokesman Kate Atanasoff commented on the situation somewhat evasively. According to him, "the permanent place of deployment is the territory of the United States." Recall that Guam is not such a de jure territory.

Atanasoff:

When necessary, we move on to using the overseas territories. In Guam, bombers will continue to operate according to our choice and program.

What are the parameters of this program, the press officer did not report.

Bases on the island of Guam US Air Force are usually used to "patrol" over the waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, with approaches to the air borders of North Korea and China.

    Well, as they deduced, they will introduce it ... and not 5, but maybe 10. Guam is too important an air base for pressure on neighboring countries, including very unfriendly ones

        The crush is not very blown away, they just found new types of crush, economic. And they have achieved such influence in this area that the whole world, including us and the Chinese, is fulfilling their sanctions and only humming slightly. And the Chinese, according to the sanctions, do not give us loans, and we removed the excitement of our oil companies in Venezuela.

          And the sanctions helped us in this serious situation (thanks to Obama)))

          And why do we need Chinese loans and the IMF, we have our own pillow - a little cushion is available ..
          Yes, the state bought shares of Venezuelan private companies and shares of Sberbank so that the bastards would not take assets to the west .. Is there a hybrid nationalization and is it bad?

      What quarantine, if 5 potential virus carriers were sent from there to the states.

    These are scheduled repairs, but there is nobody to drive the others to - all are in quarantine ... Probably request ... why would such steps be taken to demilitarize the region? And there’s just nothing to fly to replace? Yes, it’s not from the realm of dreams ..

    The Americans lift the cords, not on a massive scale, but ... the cords In due time, all the intelligence of the USSR watched the NATO steel hulks. This was the main strategy. Increased activity at strategic airbases and a massive rise in the decking of barriers ----. At that time, guys were already waiting for Engels to go home. Such a war

    They always wander the army, aviation and navy like a deck of cards, the doctrine of world domination and the superiority of the United States in the world, no one has yet canceled. So if it has gone here, it will arrive somewhere there.

    This airbase is already completely “framed” by China, and even North Korea. Than Y and "tamed" Trump. And Trump, as a businessman, realized that
    the super-expensive airbase has lost its relevance in the Asia-Pacific region.
    This airbase is becoming a weak and vulnerable link for the United States.

      It's right. The base is vulnerable to a Chinese missile strike.
      It’s not very smart to keep strategists there.

    I hope we, the Chinese and other nuclear powers, have also tightened control over the carriers and returned everything that is possible to the bases.
    Now all that’s missing is a psycho with a hand on the button.

    And there they are based not only "52". but also B-1B and B-2A. The quantity changes regularly and the fact that they did not send a replacement (without rotation) still does not mean anything ...

    Is it really so difficult to understand that neither the DPRK nor Iran will touch the United States before the election, because the war there will be such that it will not end in a week. And then we can see what Trump, with a great desire, will do with the same Eun. He is not touched, like the same bunch of d ... ma, so as not to stink. Be it political will, North Korea will be bombed into the Stone Age. And without introducing Americans there. And then, if necessary, they will introduce allies. But this is only after the election ...

    The fact that China will be able to shell Guam does not mean that it will do so. By the way, China did not have NEVER launches over a range of more than 3000 km. Guam - 3500 km
    Eun is no more than a showman, North Korea is NOT ABLE to deliver such a blow. Only theoretical. For all the time they had only one launch at a range of 3500 km. Everything else - launches along a high-altitude trajectory, which theoretically show that North Korean missiles can theoretically fly to a range of more than 3000-4000 km. But NEVER there were launches to the maximum range. And only such launches are a criterion of truth, when you can say: "Yes, a rocket can fly to a distance of XXX km"
