If the world learned anything from President Trump’s strategic missile strike on a Syrian airbase, it’s that America now has a commander-in-chief who’s NOT messing around.
As fears grow of North Korea’s rapidly advancing missile program, the Trump administration, including Gen. “Mad Dog” Mattis, just sent a crystal clear message to Kim Jong Un with their latest military deployment. This move just put North Korea on notice.
A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday, as concerns grow about North Korea’s advancing weapons program.
Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range.
The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity.
“We feel the increased presence is necessary,” the official said, citing North Korea’s worrisome behavior.
In a statement late Saturday, the U.S. Navy’s Third Fleet said the strike group had been directed to sail north, but it did not specify the destination. The military vessels will operate in the Western Pacific rather than making previously planned port visits to Australia, it added.
