U.S. military sends warplanes to Guam, U.S. territory North Korea's Kim Jong Un threatened to blow up

The U.S. military has deployed three B-2 nuclear-capable stealth bombers to Andersen Air Force Base in the U.S. territory of Guam, a move that comes as North and South Korea have cautiously re-established dialogue.

“During this short-term deployment, the B-2s will conduct local and regional training sorties and will integrate capabilities with key regional partners, ensuring bomber crews maintain a high state of readiness and crew proficiency,” the U.S. Pacific Air Forces said on its website. Roughly 200 airmen from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri were also recently deployed to Andersen to support the U.S. Pacific Command’s Bomber Assurance and Deterrence mission.

The U.S. Pacific Air Forces celebrated the arrival of the stealth bombers in a Facebook post, writing, “Don’t they look awesome!”

It’s not clear how long the deployment will last and the military was reluctant to offer specific information in this regard. Captain Christen D. Ornella, a spokesperson for the U.S. Air Force, told Newsweek, "For operational security reasons, we cannot comment on ongoing operations with the B-2s."

"But, it is fair to characterize bomber assurance and deterrence deployments as relatively short in duration––weeks," Ornella added.
