Following the US Defense Secretary’s warning that American troops are prepared to fight North Korea, the Pentagon has flown two bombers over the peninsula in a show of force.

“The slogan of US Forces Korea, many of you probably know, is ‘fight tonight.’ Not because that’s what we want to do, but because that’s what we have to be able to do and we are ready to do,” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said on Monday.

“It’s not a game.”

In the wake of these comments, the American military escalated tensions on the peninsula on Wednesday by launching a pair of supersonic bombers over South Korea.

“What we are showing today is just one tool we have to choose from a wide array of options. The alliance grows stronger every day and we remain prepared to defend and to preserve the security of the Korean Peninsula and the region,” said a statement from Lt. Gen. Thomas Bergeson, commander of the US 7th Air Force in South Korea, according to Military.com.

The planes flew out of Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and landed at Osan Air Base, roughly 75 miles from the demilitarized zone.
