The U.S. Air Force has redeployed B-1B Lancer strategic bombers at Andersen Air Base in Guam.
The deployment came just two weeks after the U.S. Air Force ended its "continuous bomber presence mission" and flew five B-52H bombers based in Guam back to the mainland on April 16.
That raised concerns over a strategic vacuum in Northeast Asia, but now the Pentagon has apparently changed its mind as relations with North Korea and China deteriorated.
The last time B-1B Lancers were stationed in the Indian and Pacific Oceans was in 2017.
