U.S. Flies Stealth Bombers in S. Korea

Underscoring the Obama administration’s vow to defend South Korea from its dangerous neighbor, North Korea, the U.S. military announced it had run two nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers over the country as a “practice bombing sortie” Thursday. The bombs were allegedly used to demonstrate the U.S.’s ability to both protect the Asia-Pacific region and “conduct long range precision strikes quickly and at will.” The incident marks the first time the U.S. military has admitted to launching a B-2 mission over the Korean peninsula.
