North Korea’s state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun said in an editorial the country is ready to illustrate its “military force” by sinking a “nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike.”
It turned out that was a lie from the Trump administration and the carrier group was not actually moving toward the peninsula, but rather heading to joint exercises with the Australian navy.
The US Pacific Command said Tuesday that training with the Australian navy had been completed, and that “the Carl Vinson Strike Group is heading north to the Western Pacific as a prudent measure.”
The fleet is expected to arrive at the Korean peninsula by the end of April, if the Trump administration is not lying to us again about the destination of the “armada”.
North Korea has said it will respond in kind to any US attack on the country. It has claimed it would strike the US mainland and US carriers and forces in the region, specifically US bases in South Korea and Japan.
