US bombers are waiting for Trump’s order to strike North Korea

‘Ready to fight TONIGHT’ US bombers are waiting for Trump’s order to strike North Korea
THE United States has a plan ready for a preemptive strike on North Korean missile sites with bombers primed and waiting for President Trump’s order, according to reports.



The plan involves an attack by Rockwell B-1 Lancer supersonic heavy bombers from Andersen Air Force Base in the US territory of Guam, according to military officials.


Retired Admiral James Stavridis told NBC News: “Of all the military options … [President Trump] could consider, this would be one of the two or three that would at least have the possibility of not escalating the situation.”


Another official added that there is “no good option”, but a unilateral US bomber strike not supported by any assets in South Korea constitutes "the best of a lot of bad options”.


“The B-1 has also been selected because it has the added benefit of not being able to carry nuclear weapons. Military planners think that will signal China, Russia, and Pyongyang that the US is not trying to escalate an already bad situation any further."

At least six B-1B bombers are believed to be at the base, which is located around 3,200km from North Korea.


On Tuesday, additional bombers arrived in Guam ready for tensions to escalate.


The Pacific Air Forces tweeted: “South Dakota airmen arrive on Guam – conduct #bilateral missions with Japan & ROK [South Korea] – US ready to #fighttonight.”
