The United States and North Korea continue to exchange aggressive rhetoric and threats. As it became known to the American media, the Pentagon has prepared a plan for a preemptive strike on North Korea from the island of GUAM. Pyongyang, in response, outlined the details of a potential bombing of U.S. military bases on GUAM. This “muscle-flexing” scares the international community: foreign Minister of Germany said that the current situation is analogous to the situation before the First world war.
TV channel EN-Bi-si referring to representatives of the U.S. Department of defense revealed the details of a theoretical pre-emptive strike of the US on the DPRK. It can be done bombers B-1 Lancer, based on the island of GUAM. This plot of land is in the Mariana archipelago belongs to the United States, although not included in their composition. Purposes of combat aircraft will be about two dozen North Korean sites for launching and testing missiles. In the air they have to support the fighters and drones.
In the Pentagon stressed that this is only one of the options in question, although it has a number of advantages over the other. For example, the B-1 bombers capable of carrying nuclear warheads, and is in theory meant to show Pyongyang that the US does not want further escalation of the conflict. In addition, for Washington it is important that none of the civilians of North Korea was not injured. In favor of this option is the fact that since may of this year exercises involving aircraft B-1 were held more often.
The DPRK, meanwhile, published another statement of the commander of the strategic forces of the Korean people’s army Kim Cancer KEMA. In this General recalled that Pyongyang is “seriously considering” the possibility of hitting us bases on GUAM is “the simultaneous launch of four strategic ballistic missiles “And 12”. It is also added that North Korean missiles will fly over several prefectures of Japan. The Secretary General of the Japanese Cabinet Yoshihide Suga said in response that Japan will shoot down any missile that threatens its security.
Meanwhile, a word about the fact that the United States is ready to strike at the DPRK, if so ordered by the President, the trump will sound for the first time. “For me it is not unimaginable military response to North Korea’s nuclear potential, — said in late July, the Head of the joint chiefs of staff of the armed forces of the United States Joseph Dunford. For me unimaginable, is to enable their nuclear missiles to hit the Denver. So my job is to develop a military solution that never happened.” The impression that the military is only waiting for a nod from trump, who in turn also does not seek to resolve the conflict through diplomacy. He said that if the DPRK will hit American targets, she felt “the fire and the fury, which did not face the world.”
Foreign Minister of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, believes that the US needs to stop fanning the conflict. “We, as in the case of the First world war, in the somnambulistic state will come to war, only this time to the war, which under certain circumstances will be fought with nuclear weapons,” — said the head of diplomacy of Germany. He also noted that the trump in its aggressive rhetoric like the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-UN.
“Plans pre — emptive strike- this is a duty thing, which military planners, — said in comments “MK”, leading researcher of the Center for Korean studies Institute of Far Eastern studies, Konstantin Asmolov. — Therefore, published data about the American attack plan on North Korea from air bases in GUAM and North Korean plans to attack with missiles of this air base are themselves alarming, but not decisive. Yes, the concentration of such events is very annoying, but it is only a step in the ladder. However, the chance of a military confrontation there, and while it is around 30%. That’s a lot”.
