    U.S. Flies B-52 Bomber Over South Korea in 'Demonstration' After North's H-Bomb Claim

    Just days after North Korea claimed to have conducted a hydrogen bomb test, the U.S. and South Korea conducted a show of force by flying a U.S. B-52 bomber over Osan, South Korea, officials said Sunday.

    The bomber was joined by South Korean F-15 and F-16 fighter aircraft during the "low-level flight,"

    "This was a demonstration of the ironclad U.S. commitment to our allies in South Korea, in Japan, and to the defense of the American homeland," said Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., commander U.S. Pacific Command, said in a statement.

    The ol'e B-53 really is an effective deterrent against potential adversaries. A few B-52's could cripple a military like North Korea's. Send in the stealth fighters and cruise missiles to neutralize their air defenses then bomb them to dust with the B-52's.

    They are pushing for Nukes because their conventional capabilities are out dated.
