Trump Just Deployed the Military To Threaten North Korea

With tensions high after the most recent North Korean missile and nuclear warhead tests, CNN is now reporting that a U.S. naval strike group led by the aircraft supercarrier USS Carl Vinson is sailing from its Singapore berth towards the Western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula.

The commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Harry Harris, confirmed that the move was a response to the aggressive North Korean military provocations, including the launch of an extended-range Scud missile over the Sea of Japan during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent visit with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago earlier this week.

The deployment of the strike force would normally not be an unusual event for the Pacific Fleet, In fact, the Vinson was in South Korea as recently as last month conducting military exercises. The difference now is that the strike force had previously been scheduled for port visits in Australia during this period.

With both the U.S. and North Korea now led by unstable and unpredictable regimes, it’s difficult to tell if the naval military move is more defensive posturing from the Americans or a harbinger of something more deadly and dangerous to come.
