SEOUL, April 20 (Yonhap) -- The U.S. Air Force dispatched a nuclear sniffer aircraft Thursday to the east of the Korean Peninsula amid the possibility of North Korea's imminent nuclear test, a government source said.

"The WC-135 Constant Phoenix, a special-purpose U.S. plane, made an emergency sortie today over the East Sea," the source said, requesting anonymity.

Its mission is to collect samples from the atmosphere in order to detect and identity a nuclear explosion.

If something does go down in NK, I feel like China is setting itself up to make a grab for some of the land.

I think this is very likely. But more in the form of a new puppet government. The Chinese don't want all the problems within NK to be their problems. Better if they can control who does have to deal with it.

One thing is for certain, if China does step into NK bidness, and trade starts to flow into NK to feed those people you probably won't see a cat past Hawaii for decades. Might not be a bad time for Samsung to open a few cat farms in SK. Talking bout profit'n Meow.

"Chinese air force land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers were put "on high alert" on Wednesday... a US defense official told CNN Thursday."

Seems the US source was real careful to indicate that these aren't the bombers the Chinese would use if they intended to challenge the US Navy.  i don't know if that's actually true, but that was the message he wanted to send.

And them taking over and installing a puppet is probably the best thing for stability.

An iron curtain collapse type reunification would fuck up SK bigly and China running stuff would give the norks a slow intro to the modern world.

Why would they put bombers on alert to bomb the little turd when all they have to do is shut off the oil spigot, cut off the food freebies, and maybe have the guy whacked?

A “rein” is a leather strap used to control a horse (or reindeer, if it’s Santa’s season). “Rein” can also be used as a verb meaning “to guide a horse using a strap.” I told the horse to “giddyup” by tugging on the reins. I had to rein him in after he began hurdling fences and garden gnomes.

I don't understand the willingness to dismiss the NK threat.

We're talking about a country that has nukes and is willing to use them on SK, Japan, USA etc. Just because they don't have an ICBM to launch a nuke at the US mainland doesn't mean they can't hit Seoul or Tokyo tomorrow.
Let them keep testing unimpeded and they will have their ICBM.

You don't believe little Kim would use a nuke in an act of desperation?

Are you willing to trust that fat fuck and his ally Assad with that kind of weapon?

Yeah... paper tigers...

They still operate some MiG-15UTI,they could theoretically catch an C-135 if for some reason that would never,ever happen somebody decided to fly one over North Korea and the only thing the Norks had available was a trainer. The MiG is a tiny bit faster and the ceilings are for all intents and purposes the same. However,this death match is never,ever going to happen.

What incentive does the fat one have to randomly start a nuclear war?  What would the advantage to him be, when he can just keep on being little league prick.  If he tries to use his nuclear toys, his whole country winds up glowing in the dark and he's dead.

Do you only comment in threads about the WC-135 Constant Phoenix aircraft  ?
I know we have had a few in the past.  

How are the bathrooms on board are they the standard fare or unique to the aircraft.?
