North Korea Threatens ‘WE’LL NUKE YOU’ – Trump ‘Sending an Armada’ to Confront the Threat

On Tuesday, North Korea State Media warned that the government of North Korea was ready to launch a “nuclear attack on the United States at any sign of U.S. aggression.”

North Korea’s official Rodong Sinmun newspaper said the country was prepared to respond to any aggression by the United States.

“Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theatre but also in the U.S. mainland,” it said.

Tension have escalated on the Korean Peninsula amid numerous threats by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to use nuclear weapons on the United States. Earlier in the month, North Korea tested a powerful new rocket engine which experts believe could be used to fire an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the west coast of the United States.

With concerns rising that North Korea may soon conduct a sixth nuclear test, the Pentagon has confirmed that the San Diego-based Carl Vinson Strike Group has been rerouted and was on the move towards the Korean peninsula.

We are sending an armada. Very powerful,” President Trump told Fox Business Network. “We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That I can tell you.”

Cmdr. Dave Benham, a spokesman for the command, called the strategy of diverting the supercarrier and its guided-missile escorts north a “prudent measure to maintain readiness and presence” in the volatile western Pacific.

“Third Fleet ships operate forward with a purpose: to safeguard U.S. interests in the Western Pacific,” Benham continued. “The number one threat in the region continues to be North Korea, due to its reckless, irresponsible, and destabilizing program of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability.”

President Trump’s national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster said on Fox News Sunday:

“This is a rogue regime that is now a nuclear-capable regime,” he said. The president has asked to be prepared to give him a full range of options to remove that threat to the American people and to our allies and partners in the region.”

The strike group heading toward Korea includes the nuclear-powered flagship aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, two destroyers and a cruiser. While the Pentagon would not confirm the strike group included submarines, President Trump seemed to suggest that they were included in the show of force.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis attempted to play down the deployment, saying it was not tied to a specific event but a matter of prudence.

“She is just on her way up there because that is where we thought it was most prudent to have her at this time,” he said at a Pentagon news conference.

Trump urges China to Take Action on North Korea; says if they don’t “we will solve the problem without them!”

China’s U.N. ambassador, Liu Jieyi, called the Korean situation “tense” and repeated China’s call for a return to diplomatics talks with North Korea.

“We believe that it is highly important to move toward denuclearization, to maintain peace and stability, and it’s time that different sides sit down to talk about achieving these objectives,” he told Reuters.

South Korean acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn warned of “greater provocations” by North Korea.

“It is possible the North may wage greater provocations such as a nuclear test timed with various anniversaries including the Supreme People’s Assembly,” said Hwang

Hwang ordered the South Korean military to intensify surveillance and to ensure close communication with the United States.

    I’m not sure if “tired of nonsense” is being sarcastic or if he’s serious. This whole situation is that rediculous. It is hard to believe the whole thing is real. The “elite” call this “theater” because to them, watching people die in battle is their entertainment. In a now infamous interview, a Rabbi Finklestein said just that. His people enjoy watching two of their enemies killing each other in the theater of war.

    So, 59 cruise missiles, a giant stupid-looking bomb in Iraq, and all the ships and delivery systems necessary to deploy these weapons…not to mention the pay checks for all those seamen — (to kill roughly 120 people). And the airbase in Syria was up and running a few days after the strike. Now, more people died of the flu this winter, and it didn’t cost the taxpayer’s billions. Nobody on here sees the insanity in this…? Somehow, y’all justified this shit!!!

    Well Ted.

    First off you brought up the middle east in an article about North Korea for what reason?

    Now unless your a peace loving hippy that beleives we should desolve our international capabilities, and the world will live in a harmonic bliss utopia those ships are constantly deployed and troops drawing their paychecks regardless.

    What you see here is a nut job leading a country, threatining a country that has been ruled by a city full of nut jobs for decades. Havent had even decent leadership since the 80’s.

    Personally not no war monger, in fact its my beleif we should keep our nose out of other peoples business until we remember how to fight and win wars. But with that said, this particular country has threatend to use nukes specifically on us. Not a fan of Trump, but especially after the past 8yrs he has to show some sort of force to this knot head running North Korea. It is my hope tho that the war mongers in Washington dont talk him into using force unless absolutly needed. And if needed its my hope and prayers our troops are givin everything they need and a plan to win with least amount of our troops injured or killed as possible.

    As far as the middle east. What I see is decades of piss pour leadership, lies, deception and claims of nation building in a region thats been killing each other from the begining of time. And has proven constantly it does not want rebuilt as the evil always rises to power..

    The fat boy and others like him must go. Clinton, Bush, and Obama gave him over 20 years to develop his nuclear and missile capabilities and very soon the continental US will be within his reach. If you think his threats are bad now just wait until he has real ICBM’s, and the ability to detonate an EMP over Kansas. The time to deal with this issue is NOW. Thank God President Trump understands this.
