World War 3: USA issues MAJOR warning to North Korea – Our bombers will NOT stop!
AMERICAN Air Force commanders have vowed to continue flying bomber missions near North Korea despite a warning from Kim Jong-un’s regime they could be shot down.
In a show of force last month, heavily armed B-1 bombers escorted by high-tech stealth fighters flew just off the hermit state’s eastern coast.
The mission was reportedly the farthest north of the demilitarised zone separating North and South Korea US planes have flown in the past 100 years.
Following the sortie, Air Commander General Terrence O’Shaughnessy told Newsweek: “We feel strongly we should be able to fly, sail anywhere international rules allow, and we will continue to do so.”
The Pentagon has previously said the missions are a “demonstration of US resolve” and showed how President Donald Trump had “many military options to defeat any threat”.
North Korea has threatened to shoot down US planes even if they are in international airspace
Kim Jong-un’s regime has continued its relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles despite international condemnation and a series of crippling sanctions.
A Defence Department official said: “North Korea’s weapons program is a grave threat to the Asia-Pacific region and the entire international community.
