Beattie Report on US Koreas


Q&A Baker & Beattie / US Koreas / On Monday, the U.S. defense department said B-52 strategic bombers based in Guam are flying missions over South Korea as part of Exercise Foal Eagle. North Korea has threatened to unleash a second Korean War with nuclear weapons in response to U.N. sanctions imposed after Pyongyang's long-range missile test in December and its third nuclear test last month. Carl Baker is director of programs at the Hawaii-based security think-tank Pacific Forum. He tells VOA's Victor Beattie the B-52s have a dual purpose.
