The Pentagon has a detailed plan for a military strike on North Korea, dispatching heavy bombers from Guam – the fortified U.S. territory that Pyongyang is threatening with missiles.

The plan would be to launch heavy B1-B bombers from Guam’s Andersen Air Force Base, limiting the flight time.
U.S. forces have conducted practice maneuvers as recently as Monday, NBC News reported – and have done 11 sets of exercises.

The bombers would get an escort from fighter jets providing protection. Satellites and drones would aide in the effort.

The planes would not carry nuclear payload, but would likely be armed with precision weapons designed to take out North Korea’s array of missiles and missile launch sites.

‘Of all the military options … [Trump] could consider, this would be one of the two or three that would at least have the possibility of not escalating the situation,” retired Adm. James Stavridis told the network.

He added: ‘A single long-range strike against against the nuclear program, a cyber offensive would be the second. Those are the only two military options that ought to be in serious consideration.’

The military has six of the powerful bombers already in position on Guam.
