Pentagon has prepared a specific plan for a strike on North Korea's missile sites if such order is given by US President Donald Trump. This was reported by NBC New agency.

Two senior military officials — and two senior retired officers — told NBC News that key to the plan would be a B-1B heavy bomber attack originating from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.

"Of all the military options [Trump] could consider, this would be one of the two or three that would at least have the possibility of not escalating the situation," said retired Adm. James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe and an NBC News analyst.

Six B-1B "Lancer" bombers are currently positioned in Guam, 2,100 miles by air to North Korea. Military sources point out that the battle tested B-1, a workhorse for the past 16 years in both Afghanistan and Iraq, has been modernized and updated — "doubled in capability," according to the Air Force.

As it was reported earlier U.S. wants negotiations with DPRK if Pyongyang abandons its nuclear program, according to Rex Tillerson. The launch of two IBMs poses an ‘unacceptable threat,’ Secretary of the State says.
