The U.S. military is not backing down after North Korea successfully conducted an ICBM test early this week over the July 4th holiday.

One day after Pyongyang celebrated the launch, two U.S. B-1 bombers flew close to the North Korean demilitarization zone.

Check it out (per Fox News):

The two B-1 bombers flew 2,000 miles from Anderson Air Force Base in Guam to conduct a precision strike training exercise with South Korean fighter jets. The bombers were also joined by Japanese fighters during their flight.

The U.S. Air Force referred to the flight as “a demonstration of the ironclad U.S. commitment to our allies.”

The bombers, which can carry 84 500-pound bombs, fired releasing inert weapons at the Pilsung Range. The mission took 10 hours, according to the statement.

“North Korea’s actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland,” Gen. Terrence O’ Shaughnessy, the Pacific Air Forces commander, said. “Let me be clear, if called upon we are trained, equipped and ready to unleash the full lethal capability of our allied air forces.”

This is the United States’ second response to North Korea’s ICBM test on Tuesday.

Following the test, the U.S. and South Korea, together, launched a series of missiles off the coast of the peninsula.
