On Sunday, North Korea warned the US, that it is prepared to sink President Donald Trump’s “armada” if necessary. Holy Cow! That’s right, Kim Jong-Un is acting out like the big ‘bully in the playground’. He said that North Korea is ready to sink the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier – U.S.S. Carl Vinson in ‘one strike’. SERIOUSLY?! Is he an idiot or what? Does he seriously want to provoke a stupid nuclear war – just because he feels like he now has to ‘strut his stuff’. President Trump is NOT Obama. He will not put up with Kim Jong-Un’s B.S. either.
Earlier it was reported President Trump ordered a strike group or armada to the Korean Peninsula which included the USS Carl Vinson. However, it turns out the powerful armada will be in the area to take part in joint drills with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force in the Western Pacific.
Now, it looks like there will be an entire Senate meeting about the tensions rising and the threats from North Korea.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
North Korean state media promised the sinking of President Donald Trump’s “armada” if North Korea felt threatened by the U.S. Navy ships steaming there, Reuters reported.
On Sunday, regime media outlet Rodong Sinmun said that it planned to closely observe the fleet of ships that the administration was planning to deploy off the coast of the communist nation.
The threat came as two Japanese ships joined the carrier strike group in the western Pacific for joint exercises.
“Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S. mainland,” the Rodong Sinmun reported.
It added that the carrier USS Carl Vinson — the biggest ship in Trump’s so-called armada — was a “gross animal,” adding that striking and sinking it would be “an actual example to show our military’s force.”
Trump had made the “armada” comments during an interview with Fox Business Network earlier this month.
“We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier,” Trump told interviewer Maria Bartiromo. “We have the best military people on Earth. And I will say this: (Kim Jong Un) is doing the wrong thing.”
While the propaganda wasn’t the top story in Sunday’s Rodong Sinmun (that honor, no joke, went to a two-page spread discussing a recent inspection of a pig farm by Supreme Leader and Most Exalted Pork Surveyor Kim Jong Un), it was the clearest sign yet that the regime planned to keep up the pressure on Trump’s administration.
Is Kim Jong-Un THAT stupid!? Has he not seen the message we sent to Syria and Assad?
Has Kim Jong-Un not seen the message President Trump sent to Afghanistan and ISIS? Say ‘hello’ to our little friend….the MOAB.
I seriously don’t think Kim Jong-Un can be THAT stupid, especially knowing that the U.S. is a force to be reckoned with.
The strike group is officially comprised of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, two guided-missile destroyers and a guided-missile cruiser. As well as massive striking power, the carrier group – headed by Admiral Nora Tyson – has the capability to intercept ballistic missiles.
It was originally due to make port calls in Australia, but instead has been diverted from Singapore to the west Pacific – where it recently conducted exercises with the South Korean Navy.
Here’s what some of our soldiers had to say about North Korea’s threats:
Of course, President Trump is not taking this threat lightly. He has asked for the ENTIRE Senate to be informed and briefed on the situation of North Korea.
