WEB Notes: Just in case someone needs a reminder, you do not use bombers to keep refuges at bay. There have been reports that 150,000 Chinese troops have been deployed to the North Korean border. Bombers would be used to take part in any conflict that goes on and it will not be against the US.
Chinese air force land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers were put “on high alert” on Wednesday as the US sees evidence that the Chinese military is preparing to respond to a potential situation in North Korea, a US defense official tells CNN.
The official said the US has also seen an extraordinary number of Chinese military aircraft being brought up to full readiness through intensified maintenance.
