Flexing a bit of muscle here?

SEOUL, South Korea — It was meant to be show of force that would demonstrate to North Korea the towering military prowess of the United States.

Escorted by fighter jets, an undisclosed number of supersonic, long-range B-1B Lancer bombers were dispatched Saturday to fly up North Korea's eastern coast.

While the aircraft stayed in international waters, the nighttime mission took them farther north of the Demilitarized Zone that separates North and South Korea than any other American bomber or fighter this century.

But North Korea may not have actually noticed.

"They may not have noticed"!  

Our birds know when they know we are there. They know when they are locked in to a radar, so know where that radar is, and know when a weapon is locked on them.  So what does that mean?  First it means the technology of stealth being near or totally invisible to radar works, but it also may mean while NK thinks the have an offensive edge, they forgot the defense. They may not be all that ready in the defense department, they think "we can shoot you", so "we don't think you can shoot us". They are a little like Sadaam Hussien who boasted "The Mother of all battles". 100,000 troops staged in the desert in deep bunkers, they were going to annihilate us. Turned out he drastically underestimated what we could do to them, and those bunkers became their tombs. Bunker buster bombs wiped them out, one of those hidden statistics they did not talk about. 

If NK radar could not see our planes, what do they think will happen when we scramble their radar and they are totally blind to stealth bombers?  Immediately air superiority, scramble their communications, take out their air bases and communications, they will have no organization, and be blind. When we fly near borders, and they see us, we are mapping out all these radar bases and sources, so we know where their eyes are. They are no match for us, however on the ground they have thousands of artillery aimed at Seoul, so they are capable of massive casualties on civilians. If they ever got hit by us, it would not be half way, question is would China join in and protect them?  

It is a very intense level with dire consequences.

Yeah, China is the scary one.  I really don't understand what North Korea expects to get out of this.

When I was a kid my grandma talked about the part of the bible that talks about the dragon, bear and eagle in revelations.  Her interpretation was that the dragon was China, the bear Russia, and the eagle the US.  She thought it was talking about a war between all three.  Watching some of this stuff play out makes me wonder.
