This just in—chubby North Korea leader Kim Jong Un has been warned several times not to poke the bear, but this time he went too far.
He’s been aggressively pushing for nuclear weapons capability, and launched yet ANOTHER missile test last Friday.
But, Trump isn’t one to back down—he recently unleashed the most advanced American military jet, TO DATE, in a display of might and power to the arrogant North Korean leader.
According to the official website of the F35 Lightning II, this jet isn’t one that tubby little Mr. Un will want to mess with:
“Advanced electronic warfare (EW) capabilities enable F-35 pilots to locate and track enemy forces, jam radars and disrupt attacks with unparalleled effectiveness. Advanced avionics give the pilot real-time access to battle space information with 360-degree coverage and an unparalleled ability to dominate the tactical environment.”
“Data collected by sensors on the F-35 will immediately be shared with commanders at sea, in the air or on the ground, providing an instantaneous, high-fidelity view of ongoing operations – making the F-35 a formidable force multiplier while enhancing coalition operations. This system allows F-35 pilots to reach well-defended targets and suppress enemy radars.”
This is just one of the MANY capabilities that this jet has, from incredible stealth to ridiculous speeds, to interoperability to full mission systems coverage.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Pentagon officials are sending America’s newest strike fighter to South Korea, where they will participate in war games and strengthen the U.S. military’s capabilities at a time of historic tensions with North Korea.”
“This is the first time we have operated the F-35B in the Republic of Korea,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters Monday.”
“That announcement came just as North Korea is pursuing an aggressive schedule of nuclear weapons program tests. The regime reportedly tested a ballistic missile engine on Friday, including technology that “could possibly be used in an eventual intercontinental ballistic missile.”
“State-run media, meanwhile, has issued a series of bulletins threatening preemptive strikes on U.S. forces in the region.”
“The F-35, long a controversial fighter jet because of early performance struggles and a price tag that made it the most expensive weapons system in U.S. history, now impresses top military brass as the most advanced air-to-ground fighter available to U.S. allies.”
” ‘We’re doing fantastic,’ Air Force Gen. ‘Hawk’ Carlisle told reporters in February. ‘We are going to get that airplane out on the road.’ ”
“Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is trying to increase the U.S. ability to deter a North Korean attack, while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson makes a diplomatic push with China and regional allies to find a new way to curb the regime’s weapons program.”
” ‘It goes without saying we are committed to defending the Republic of Korea and Japan against any North Korean aggression,’ ” Davis said.
Ultra Technological F-35 in Action • Vertical Takeoff & Refueling
South Korea has claimed that the missiles are not intercontinental ballistic missiles, and according to the country’s defense minister, several missiles landed only 190 miles away from Japan. So, it doesn’t seem like we have much to worry about.
The US military has been tracking North Korea’s missile testing for quite some time now, and they’ve noted that it does not possess a threat to America.
The only way that North Korea could pose a threat to America is if they did, in fact, develop intercontinental nuclear weaponry, but based off of where they’re at now, this is a long while away.
But, it’s better that we nip this in the bud and show North Korea who’s boss—we can’t have an arrogant tyrannical dictator get nuclear weapons *cough* Obama and Iran *cough*.
Good luck with that…
