Nuclear bomber on the way to Europe

It's one of those startle seconds you have when you see this aircraft in a post on Linkedin, a Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, called Stratofortress, sky fortress resp. Stratosphere Fortress in German, in the approach. A short text underneath: "USA moves nuclear bombers to Europe". Concern spreads through me.

After Vladimir Putin announced the suspend the last major disarmament treaty with the USA, the Americans, seem to give a clear answer: "Then let's play with fire".

Four B-52 Stratofortresses assigned to the 5th Bomb Wing from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, were deployed in support of the latest Bomber Task Force on Feb. 24, 2023 to the Moron Air Force Base relocated.

I don't know what to think about it, officially they talk about routine, but I don't see routine in moving such weapons to Europe, in addition, what is interesting is not what is official, but what is unofficial.

Instead of peace, everything is trimmed for further escalation and war, and then you seem to worry, that China wants to negotiate a peace. It is particularly alarming when such information does not appear in the media at all, stumbled across a Linkedin post, and included here in the article, nothing about it is found in the German media, and also in the U.S. there is no suitable search result for the appropriate keywords, only one page reports on it, only the Austrian aviation magazine Austrian Wings. From there I have to look further where these got it, only to land on a domain ending in .mil, the official top-level domain for military websites, mainly USA. And there confirms the US Airforce Europe (https://www.usafe.af.mil/) that four B-52 Stratofortresses have been moved to Europe.
