America conducts first precision bomb training to threaten North Korea


The United States has conducted exercises with South Korea – seen as a show of force against North Korea – as tensions rise following North Korea’s recent launch of balloons carrying waste to South Korea and other provocations.

South Korea’s military says the United States flew a B-1B long-range bomber over the Korean Peninsula, in the first precision-guided bombing exercise with South Korea in seven years .

The exercises included other U.S. and South Korean advanced fighter jets, in addition to the B-1B jets, the second U.S. bomber to be temporarily deployed over the Korean Peninsula this year.

Security Commitment

The exercises aim to demonstrate the United States’ security commitment to South Korea and strengthen the allies’ common defense posture, according to the South Korean Defense Ministry.

During the exercise, B-1B bombers dropped joint direct attack munitions while escorting South Korean aircraft, the first such bombing exercise conducted by a U.S. bomber since 2017, a statement said of the ministry.

She added that South Korean warplanes also conducted live-fire exercises to show that the country is ready to punish North Korea if provoked.

JDAM bombs include “bunker bombs”. JDAM is a guidance system that converts conventional unguided bombs into more precise GPS-guided weapons.

All US fighter jets, bombers and drones can use JDAMs, and these munitions are part of the weapons systems the US is providing to Ukraine to help it fight Russia.

Super bombs

North Korea is highly sensitive to exercises using bunker busting bombs, which could threaten its leadership and its complex network of tunnels and underground military structures.

The B-1B is also capable of carrying a large payload of conventional weapons. North Korea previously described the suicide bomber’s deployment as evidence of U.S. hostility. North Korea responded to previous flights of B-1Bs and other powerful U.S. aircraft to South Korea with its own missile tests.

Attacks from the North

Last week, North Korea launched hundreds of massive balloons to drop feces, cigarette butts, leftover fabrics and waste batteries across South Korea, angering previous campaigns by South Korean civilians sending balloons containing leaflets and other items to North Korea. South Korea responded by promising “intolerable” retaliatory measures and suspended a fragile military agreement with North Korea that called on both sides to reduce tensions along their border.

The suspension of the 2018 inter-Korean agreement allows South Korea to resume military activities such as live-fire exercises or broadcasting anti-North Korean propaganda through loudspeakers in border areas. Such measures will likely prompt North Korea to respond in a provocative manner.

Recently, North Korea launched a missile in an attempt to place a second spy satellite into orbit, in violation of United Nations resolutions, but it exploded shortly after launch. It also tested nuclear-capable weapons in an exercise simulating a preemptive strike against South Korea and allegedly jammed South Korea’s GPS navigation signals.
