The United States flew two supersonic B-1B bombers over the Korean peninsula Sunday in the latest provocative move against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
In a response to the DPRK's successful test launch Friday of its Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile, the strategic bombers were accompanied by Japanese and South Korean jets, the Pentagon said.
The aggressive overflight came amid belligerent tweets from Washington, including U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley Sunday tweeting that the United States was "done talking" about the DPRK.
“If the Yankees brandish the nuclear stick on this land again despite our repeated warnings, we will clearly teach them manners with the nuclear strategic force which we had shown them one by one,” said DPRK leader Kim Jong Un following the successful test launch, according to Pyongyang's Rodong Sinmun official news outlet.
