Default North Korea threatens to strike US aircraft carrier to show 'military's force'

Dictator Pudge is gettin' mouthy again.

Ballsy talk considering NK can't even get a rocket in the air before exploding.

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.

I rather doubt that North Korea will attack an American ship.

That said, it is not inconceivable that a madman--and Kim Jong-un certainly fits that description--might do something that makes no rational sense...

Madman Little Kimmie could well do something stupid. It behooves the US to keep paying close attention and always be prepared.

A madman--and Donald J.Trump certainly fits that description--has already done many things that are irrational.

I think it is unfortunate that you have hijacked this thread, and turned it into a Trump-bashing thread...

You are kidding, hopefully. Little Kimmie has been pulling the wings off bugs since he was 1 YO.

Actually, I know you're not kidding.

Translation: If not for Donald Trump's actions, Kim Jong-un would not have reacted badly.

So it is mostly Donald Trump's fault.

Is that about right?

Not with Trump as potus. If Obama were in charge; maybe.
