The United States is racking up enemies that’s why it needs to do something to keep them at bay. Recently, some US bombers went to fly in an effort to deter and intimidate China, Russia and North Korea. Will the United States succeed in keeping its enemies under control?
US Launches Bombers To Frighten Enemies
Some it call it gunboat diplomacy from 35,000 feet. Just in the last two months, the United States sent off its flown B-1 bombers complete with the latest non-nuclear cruise missiles in a series of missions requiring them to fly over Europe and Asia. According to analysts, the missions were part of the United States’ strategy to show both allies and enemies its “unshakable commitment.”
According NBC, the flights were part of the West’s strategic missions intended to send messages to Russia, China and North Korea. All of the B-1s deployed carry two dozen non-nuclear cruise missiles equipped with extremely accurate, bunker-busting warheads, a new capability.

“Deployment follows capability,” explained Hans M. Kristensen of the Federation of American Scientists who has been monitoring the missions. According to him, the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) is the United States’ way of showing that it has intimidating weaponry even minus the nuclear aspect.
“North Korea’s nuclear test is a dangerous escalation and poses an unacceptable threat,” added Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, U.S. Forces Korea commander.
“The United States has an unshakable commitment to defend allies in the region and will take necessary steps to do so, including operations like this one today.”
US Must Be Responsible
Nonetheless, China took a jab at the United States, saying that it needs to take ‘due responsibility’ in North Korea’s nuclear weapons.
“I think the U.S. should go over the process of the development of the nuclear issue and earnestly work on a tangible and effective resolution,” USA Today quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.
