Three US carrier strike groups gather near South Korea for exercise

Three US carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan, the USS Nimitz and the US Theodore Roosevelt, and their strike groups will drill together in the Western Pacific for the first time since 2007, while US President Donald Trump tours Asia. They will hold joint air defense drills, sea surveillance and close-in coordinated maneuvers with Japan on Saturday and Sunday, followed by drills with the South Korean Navy on Monday and Tuesday.

    Even ten U.S. carrier groups displays will not deter the insane, super-fat piglet Kim:
    ONLY completely destroying the Korean dog-meat eater and his retinue will do…

      First, these are kick ass exercises, and second the objective is not to deter, but very much to inter, because guess what, after death the fat pig is turning back into an any human, and there is no point to hate a cadaver.

      The good job is to be done by his own people, in sort of die hard on steroids.

      Maybe we have to keep his skull for a museum about comunism, but this is a hard decision, takes time. Some people could even ask for Putin’s instead.

    The carriers are there for show. The action taking down the leader can only be performed by China from the inside. There must be thousands of top level Koreans that will take orders from China. I hope that Trump made that deal.

      We will know about the deal the minute Kim starts to hint at bombing China too. It takes couple more days.

    Provocative, nothing but more retoric.
    A little unusual to start a war with president in range.

    This weekend will likely see a new missile launch to coincide with the battle group exercise currently taking place.
