WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Twenty-four bombers will begin moving from bases in the United States to Guam as part of a planned beefing up of U.S. military forces in the Pacific to send a "message" to North Korea, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
The move is part of the U.S. Pacific Command's effort to maintain a robust military presence around the Korean Peninsula while forces are being built up in the Persian Gulf region. Officials say they intend to send a nonthreatening message to North Korea not to take advantage of the Iraqi situation and assume the U.S. military is distracted.

Heres an idea.... take about 4 B-52s (want something nice, large, and hard to miss in the air), loaded with live nukes, and about 40 F-14s/FA-18s for escorts.... fly right up the middle of North Korea with bomb bays hanging open, turn and come right back down daring NK to shoot them down....
