Escalating Cold War, US Flights Bomber Over South Korea

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

The U.S. military flew a B-52 bomber over South Korea on Sunday, in a Cold War-style show of force that was met with concern by human rights campaigners.

American forces made the gesture amid climbing tensions following North Korea's widely-disputed claim that it detonated a hydrogen bomb test on Wednesday.

U.S. Pacific Command announced the flight on Twitter:

Who suggests these actions, and who makes the decision to go ahead thinking that it will help?

End war. Especially this one. Spend half of the current defence budget on peace activism.

An entity certain of itself would ignore the Kim Klan.

Lockheed Martin would be a good buy today.

Thank you CD for posting this article linking to the AFSC petition. Signed.

Hell, spend three quarters or more of the defense offense budget on peace. The US Fourth Reich would still have a powerful military, but perhaps it would be cut back to a genuine defense force instead of a powerful, world conquering, Wehrmacht.

Bernie has no chance of getting his well thought of domestic policies funded so long as the US WAR MACHINE is allowed continued control of our government. And remember, no one likes, or respects, a bully.

NOT SURPRISING.. This example is very telling of the US....That their only response is a military one and that their only response is a military one.
Eye for an eye....Maybe the US is planning to end the Korean War with this relic of a plane.

Even half of the Pentagon waste on over priced under performing weapons and contractor fraud will pay for free healthcare, rebuilding of America and free higher education for all students.

The War Department was an honest name for the DOD.

All this sabre ratting is useless. Just stop sending them food and one of two things is gonna happen. The NK leadership is gonna stop spending on arms and feed the people. or,the people are gonna revolt and finally get rid of the last surviving communist dictatorship. I'm counting on the latter.

"Childish" was perfect as a description for this hawkish foolishness.

With all those big brains and fancy degrees and chests full of medals, where's the ability to use diplomacy?

Thanks in large part to "Bernie"...

You might consider looking at "Bernie's" voting record on weapons and war. He's a hawk in tattered sheep's clothing...

Too bad we have no commander-in-chief between wall street & the pentagon.
