Washington, July 30: The tensions between U.S.A and North Korea does not seem to ease at all, in fact it’s elevating to a point from where there’s no return. The United States flew two B-1B bombers over the Korean peninsula in a show of force after recent North Korean missile tests. The bombers took off from a U.S. air base in Guam, and were joined by Japanese and South Korean fighter jets during the exercise, according to the reports by Washington Post.
North Korea said it conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Friday that proved its ability to strike America's mainland, drawing a sharp warning from U.S. President Donald Trump.
The U.S. has in the past used overflights of the supersonic B1-B "Lancer" bomber as a show of force in response to North Korean missile or nuclear tests. China, the North's main ally, said it opposed North Korea's missile launches, which it said violate United Nations Security Council resolutions designed to curb Pyongyang's banned nuclear and missile programmes.
Taking the anger on Twitter, he said, “Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet…” President Donald Trump condemned the missile launch and said the United States would act to ensure its security. "Threatening the world, these weapons and tests further isolate North Korea, weaken its economy and deprive its people," Trump said in a written statement. "The United States will take all necessary steps to ensure the security of the American homeland and protect our allies in the region."
