American warplanes in South Korea - level 2
Three weeks ago, North Korea launched a rocket. North Korea said that it was just a satellite launch, but many countries started to worry.
Only a week after the launch, the USA sent four fighter jets to South Korea. This act showed the strong political allegiance between the USA and South Korea and it was a warning to North Korea. The F-22 fighter jets are the best warplanes that the USA has.
This wasn’t the first time the USA showed its power in the region. When North Korea tested a nuclear bomb, the USA sent a bomber to North Korea. The B52 bomber can carry nuclear weapons.
Difficult words: launch (to go up), fighter jet (a warplane), allegiance (loyalty, “friendship”).
