The United States has begun deploying B-2 Stealth Bombers from the mainland USA to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. This would put the nuclear-armed bombers well within striking distance of North Korea.
The photo below was taken today at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, home to the B-2 fleet as two B-2's taxi to the main runway for takeoff.

the B-2's have been forward deployed rotation to Guam for awhile now in support of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan so this "news" is old.
the B-2's can carry conventional bombs as well as nukes.
i wouldn't put much credit into the source of the story.
I live in the main area that the B-2's come to top off their tanks after take off and i haven't seen 1 B-2 all day.

That must be quite the site to see these coming in for a feulling, do let us know if the activity suddenly gets beyond normal.
Nice to know you have a visual on the B-2 traffic. Starred.
