B-2's dont really need to be forward deployed to strike at NK.
they can reach it from the continental US with inflight refueling.
B-2's hold the record for the longest duration combat missions 40+ hrs in the air.

The things even have a galley on board.

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.


You don't know anything about that photo


That is more than likely some 'stock' photo from somewhere, maybe to make the story more credible they could of got it from somewhere where they know it's not been put on the net before... But you have no way of knowing if that was today, last month or 5 years ago. Also when those B-2's are going out on serious business don't they fly at night??

I won't take anything from this source as 'news' personally.

edit: BTW I don't doubt there are some B-2's on hand for the nNorth Korea crisis, just saying these guys do not have inside information in any real scence.

Snip

north korea is a poor country spending all its money on its militay and they have nukes so unless we destroy them in a first strike they will nuke or send a pis load of missles at someone


Using this same anology shouldnt both China and Russia and the North Koreans Attack or Nuke the USA?

Whats the differance?

Both poor and have lots of missiles, spend a huge amount of their income (us now especially since depression started, food kitchens, california in a "state of emergency") on War and military?

Whats the difference?

Oh of course the difference is that YOU live in the US, but from a Chinese or korean or Russian point of veiw....

Us & Them eh.... when will humans learn
..........................................................................

The Op source is a Lunatic madman.....

Thinking similar but more extreme thoughts as the poster I mention above...

He is uncredible....

The fact that B2,s are taxying on a runway in the US or in Arabia or in Asia means nothing, they do every day anyhow.

Every day

Just like today, if the photo is real.

One of my former supervisors was a crew member aboard one during Desert Storm and he destroyed my admiration for the craft. He described it as like driving the worst ghetto beater with no power transmission, falling through space. I still get motion sick thinking of it!

Yes, b-2's launched from US can (with refueling) make the trip as well as ICBM's.

For what it may matter, it would give little kimmy a 30 min to several hours warning that trouble is coming-not a wise war move, though it would be a bold one-kind, yeah, ya see me, what can you do about it.

A long time, read bomber from US, gives kim a chance to call Russia/China and beg for help and them a chance to call the US to try to strong arm us.

Frankly, In my "never been in the military" mind, If and I mean "IF" the US were to launch a nuke into N.K., it should be from a ship near by, no chance to react, no chance to call for help.
(yes, that is cold hearted, but war is not kind hearted)

All that a side, I hope a simple spanking of bad-little kimmy will do.

my friend you really need to relax and unbind your shorts. just because a flight of B-2's leaves whiteman and flies down here to hit a tanker does not mean they are headed to NK, Iraq, Afghanistan. or anywhere else overseas.

Have you ever heard of training exercises? as far as i know and anyone else knows they are headed to nellis to run the bomb range they do that a lot you know. and me saying that I saw a B-2 flying above my house hitting the tanker isn't a security concern. and doesn't instantly mean they are headed to anywhere. and just because i see them flying one way to meet the tanker doesn't mean they will continue in the direction that i last seen them headed towards.

those funny tanker drivers fly in circles one time you see a B-2 its headed east to met the tanker the next its flying west, the next it might be flying north and i think you get my point.

so chill, telling someone on an internet forum that you just happen to see an unusual pattern in the sky that day doesn't mean crap and the feds aren't going to shut down the net just because someone said they saw a b-2.

Great point.

B-2's were never deployed during Desert Storm. They were still part of the SIOP and on ready alert as part of the deternece triad.

the b-2's have left whiteman during the day to hit Iraq and Afghanistan. Usually and its no big secret The B-2 crews time there flight so it will be dark over the target.

I agree, it is a bit presumptuous for a source, however I am certainly learning a lot about the B-2 which is welcomed information.

Personally, I am just waiting for the big headline when the first shot is fired, be it a bullet or a nuke, something is going to happen within days, I don't doubt we are going to witness a new Korean war thanks to Kim's antics.

I would almost put money on the fact that quite a few bullets have already been fired in NK in the last few days, most probably into the back of some unfortunate citizens heads... Be they suspected US supporters, people with known links to south korea or just some klutx that dropped a generals bowl of soup.

But of course we would never hear of that.

No please keep your mouth shut. Do you want to risk our peoples lives just so you can know what you will soon find out anyway. People here should never spout off about troop or assets movements in a situation like this, Doing so should be against the law.

We may be at war, Please think twice before you post because one it could get you in trouble or two something could happen to our men or woman and then the gov could shut down the net. Op-sec people. You don't think that North Korea has people watching sites like this for just that very kind of info?


Oh for heavens sake. Noticing increased activity will harm no one. Hell, I live next to Buckley Air Force base and the activity has soared the last few days and I and everyone else expects that. They are preparing to which they should. Nothing lost if Kim gets his Xbox and settles down. Just a little more training for our fly boys.

And if NK listens to what they see on the net, they are freaking idiots, especially if they take from this site as gospel, then they should lose very quickly!!!

At the risk of sounding ignorant, Fred T, why do you need more than 2 b-2's to launch what would probably be only one nuke, probably missile/rocket not gravity bomb.
(Easily 6 missile/rocket nukes could be fired from 2 bombers)

The missile could be fired "well" out of range of N.K. sam's.
(Of course, it would be assumed the 2 planes would be escorted by a flight of fighters for protection.).

My point is I don't see a war with N.K., more like a fast flattening.

This damned Korean thing has been going on now for over fifty years, and it never gets better. It gets worse.

Let's blow this thing, and get it over with.

Or if one did it smart, you'd turn to NK and tell them that they have four hours to agree for all time to abandon their nuclear program and let the international community to verify it, any time, any place.

But go ahead and have the aircraft in the air, and the moment they refuse, you take them out.

Then, you turn to Iran and give them the same option.

Five will get you ten, that they'll decide their nuclear program isn't all they had hoped it would be.

Actually B-2's can carry 16 B-83 / B-61 (Airdropped nuckes) but from my understanding you would want to hit multiple targets at or near the same time which one B-2 cannot do. For each mission airframe you would also want a backup in case of shootdown or mechanical failure at least in the strategic role.

The B-2 can only carry gravity nukes. the AGM-131 which it could carry was canceled in 1991 as part of the cold war ending. The ALCM (The nuclear version of the CALCM) is too big.
