North Korea threatens to strike US aircraft carrier to show 'military's force' | Fox News

North Korea threatened Sunday to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military prowess as two Japanese Navy ships joined a U.S. strike group for exercises in the Philippine Sea.

“Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," according to North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party’s newspaper, the Rodong Sinmum.

The paper also likened the USS Carl Vinson to a “gross animal” and said a strike on the carrier would be “an actual example to show our military’s force.”

President Trump ordered the USS Carl Vinson to sail to waters off the Korean Peninsula in response to the rising tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile tests and threats to attack the U.S. and its allies. Vice President Pence said Saturday that group would arrive “within days.”

The Vinson and two other U.S. warships were joined by two Japanese destroyers as they continued their journey north in the western Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Navy said in a statement. The U.S. group also includes a guided-missile cruiser and a guided-missile destroyer.

The aircraft carrier had canceled a scheduled visit to Australia to divert toward North Korea in a show of force, though it still conducted a curtailed training exercise with Australia before doing so.

The Navy called the exercise "routine" and said it is designed to improve combined maritime response and defense capabilities, as well as joint maneuvering proficiency.

The Vinson group has conducted three previous bilateral exercises with the Japanese Navy since leaving San Diego on Jan. 5 for a western Pacific deployment. The most recent one was in March.

Analysts believe that North Korea could be gearing up for its sixth nuclear test in wake of a failed missile launch and ahead of the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army, which takes place Tuesday.

North Korea conducted two of its five nuclear tests last year and is believed to be working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles that could reach the mainland U.S.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Why, they have done it before. Can You Say Pueblo?
Numb-nuts should have taken his aggressive action before Obama left office. Like President Carter, Obama would most likely have wrung his hands, and waited it out. Using the persistent shield of patience whilst an international bully seizes more of our assts. And our personnel.

That we have a real President in office now, seems to be the provocation for a bellicose attitude on the part of North Korea. What amazes me is that somehow, the left considers that to be the fault of the President.

With all respect to Salty's premise,,,; Brinkmanship is a dangerous game. I don't think Pudgy has a clue how easily the Vinson group can smack an annoying bug.

Most especially since THE Donald removed the retaining bolts on our military.

Bad news for anyone that has an American sub lurking around its country.

Hell, we're gonna have an entire carrier group there soon.

Trump doesn't f*ck around. About time someone stands up to Pudge and stop being a pushover.

One thing certain, 90 missiles and a big ass bomb certainly speak louder than decades of rhetoric and imaginary lines in the sand.

It is hard to say what that irrational, pudgy little guy will do. However, someone in his military had better tell him that if he attacks anywhere, it will be only a matter of minutes until his palace is reduced to rubble.
