BREAKING: American Troops DEPLOYED To South Korea


Members of a Madison-based Wisconsin Air National Guard unit will deploy to the tension-filled Korean peninsula.
About 200 airmen and 12 F-16 jets from the 176th Fighter Squadron will leave later this month for duty in South Korea.


The Wisconsin National Guard says the airmen will support security operations in the western Pacific.

Pacific Air Forces Theater Security Package deployments to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region signify a continued commitment to regional stability and security, while allowing units to train in the Pacific theater. F-16s routinely deploy throughout the U.S. Pacific Command (U.S. PACOM) area of responsibility, Stars and Stripes reports.

The F-16 deployment to Kunsan is in support of U.S. PACOM’s security obligations in the Western Pacific, and the deployed unit will perform training under the direction of the 8th Fighter Wing out of Kunsan Air Base.


The United States routinely evaluates readiness and re-positions forces as needed to ensure capabilities necessary to meet obligations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. These deployments demonstrate the continued U.S. commitment to fulfill security responsibilities throughout the Western Pacific and to maintain peace in the region.


The announcement comes days after the two nations conducted joint drills with Japan, which involved flying a pair of supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers over South Korea. The mission was meant as a demonstration of force in response to North Korea’s latest ballistic missile test last week.

Pyongyang has also been testing systems to launch missiles from submarines, and South Korean military and intelligence officials suspect the North is preparing for another missile or nuclear test, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Meanwhile, the U.S. and South Korea are planning to deploy four additional Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, launchers on the peninsula within the next month, South Korea’s Yeongnam Ilbo newspaper reporter.

While the deployment is small in comparison, people need to realize that it is in itself a fighting force to be heavily watched.

We would all like to think that everything is business as usual and that the United States and our military are simply doing routines and that no conflicts are on the horizon.  Reality is far different and at some point we will have to go HOT with North Korea.

We have multiple Navy strike groups in the region, adding 4 more THAAD systems and have stepped up bomber and fighter jet deployment rotations.

Hopefully the bolstering of military might will send North Korea back peddling, but we all know that simply will not happen.

We need to stop living in a rainbow and skittle filled delusional state, conflicts happen and war is extremely profitable for the oligarchs.

Does not mean WWIII is on the horizon nor does it mean that U.S. mainland will be nuked like burnt toast.  Keep your eyes on the horizon and head in the game.

176th Fighter Squadron “Badgers” is simply badass!

God Bless.
