Intimidation Flights

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Air Force flew two B-52H bombers over the Persian Gulf on Wednesday as an intimidation tactic. This is the third flight of this kind in 45 days.

National security officials have been worried that Iran may be planning some kind of retaliation on January 3, the one-year anniversary of the U.S.-ordered airstrikes that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. Officials do think that Iran wants to avenge that killing and the B-52 bombers presence in that airspace is a sign that the U.S. is ready to rumble if necessary.
