US Bomber Takes Off From Guam's Andersen Air Force Base

During the mission, the B-1s were joined by Japan Air Self-Defense Force F-2s as well as Republic of Korea Air Force KF-16 fighter jets, performing two sequential bilateral missions.

Some view United States military actions near the Korean Peninsula as belonging to the same class of threats Trump warned against on Tuesday when he said that North Korean threats would be met with "fire and fury and power".

Almost two-thirds of likely voters in the United States (US) say military action against North Korea is likely within the next six months.

The U.S. planes, which were created to carry nuclear bombs and later switched to conventional payloads, followed up the drills with Japan with a separate exercise with South Korean Forces, the ASDF said.

Bombers, routinely deployed at the U.S Andersen Air Force Base in the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, have been readying for action on Friday in response to North Korea's threat to land a missile near the island.

North Korea's state-run media has accused Japan of selling out by supporting the United States in its effort to shut down North Korea's nuclear and ballistic weapons programs.

The Japanese Defense Ministry on August 8 said that North Korea may have already developed the capability to fit nuclear warheads onto its ICBMs. If carried out, it would be its most provocative missile launch to date.
