Over the last few years, Barack Obama’s two-term presidency to be more precise, North Korea has become bolder and more aggressive with their nuclear weapons testing program.
Somehow, thanks to Obama’s wussiness, they must have gotten the idea that America is a pushover. Yet, ever since Donald Trump took office, North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has been shoving his weight around in the region and acting tough.
So President Trump decided to show the five foot nothing, two-bit dictator what tough really looks like. First, he sent two aircraft carrier strike groups to the region and now he’s sending a third group, with the USS Nimitz supercarrier leading the way! Just enough to turn North Korea into a bad memory.
From Conservative Tribune:
President Donald Trump and American military have sent North Korea two very big messages with two carrier strike groups. Now, they’re sending in the Nimitz.
According to Voice of America, the Nimitz carrier strike group — led by the supercarrier USS Nimitz — will become the third carrier strike group deployed in the region. Carrier strike groups organized around the USS Carl Vinson and the USS Ronald Reagan have already been deployed to the region.
The Japan News reported that the Nimitz strike group would be deployed to the region for a six-month training mission. While the Nimitz is supposed to replace the Vinson, both carriers may be in the Korean Peninsula area “until the end of the mission transfer.” VOA noted that the presence of three carrier strike groups in the same region was an extremely rare occurrence.
The news came one day after Japan and the United States agreed to enforce more serious sanctions on North Korea at the G7 summit in Italy. It also came one day before the latest missile test by the North Korean government.
“President Trump and Prime Minister Abe agreed their teams would cooperate to enhance sanctions on North Korea, including by identifying and sanctioning entities that support North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs,” the White House announced Saturday, according to Reuters.
“They also agreed to further strengthen the alliance between the United States and Japan, to further each country’s capability to deter and defend against threats from North Korea.”
Of course, none of this has really stopped Kim Jong-Un’s posturing, but if he makes one move that looks threatening to us or any of our allies, his piddly little scud missile program won’t save him from being evaporated by the USS Nimitz like mist in a Texas summer!
