Kim Jong Un has been busy trying to prove to the world that he has a set of balls. Ever since President Trump did airstrikes on Syria and dispatched our aircraft carrier to the Korean peninsula, the fat little dictator has been livid, sending 120,000 troops of his own to the border as he rattles his sabers and spouts off with threats about launching a full nuclear war. But as Kim attempts to prove to the world he’s a badass while deploying his poorly trained soldiers who are equipped with soviet-era gear and uniforms, he just got hit with a round of devastating news after what President Trump just launched straight towards his location overnight.
After apparently not getting the message the first time to back the hell off with just one aircraft carrier being parked in his back yard, it looks like our badass president is upping the ante. In a breaking report, there’s rumors that Trump has just ordered two additional carrier strike groups that he’s deploying to the region, which will now place an insane amount of naval and air firepower at the disposal of the military’s regional commander. Now in addition to deploying the USS Carl Vision, two other carrier strike groups, the USS Ronald Reagan and USS Nimitz, are now barreling full steam towards Kim Jong Un’s location that’ll no doubt the chubby dictator crapping his pants. Conservative Tribune has more:
A roughly translated version of the article, which cites South Korean government officials who claimed knowledge of the deployment orders, stated that in addition to the USS Carl Vinson, already steaming toward Korea from Singapore, the carrier strike groups of the USS Ronald Reagan and USS Nimitz were also ordered to head for the region.
That shouldn’t be too difficult for the Reagan strike group, whose home port is in Japan, but it may take a bit more time for the Nimitz group, as it is reportedly wrapping up final pre-deployment assessments off the coast of Oregon, according to the Nimitz News, the carrier’s in-house media outlet.
Unlike Obama who constantly revealed our military plans to the enemy, President Trump has made it clear that he will not discuss strategy or asset movements before the mission begins, as this is basic OPSEC practices for keeping the enemy in the dark in regards to impending operations. We’ll have to wait to get confirmation of this rumor, but there’s no reason to doubt it at this point. Zero Hedge is also getting substantial evidence that these two additional carrier strike groups have in fact been deployed to the Korean Peninsula:
According to a report by South Korea’s primary news outlet, Yonhap, the Pentagon has directed a total of three US aircraft carriers toward the Korean Peninsula, citing a South Korean government source.
Yonhap reports that in addition to the CVN-70 Carl Vinson, which is expected to arrive off the South Korean coast on April 25, the CVN-76 Ronald Reagan – currently in home port in Yokosuka, Japan – and the CVN-68 Nimitz carrier group – currently undergoing final pre-deployment assessment, Composite Training Unit Exercise off Oregon – will enter the Sea of Japan next week. According to the senior government official. the US and South Korea are discussing joint drills, which will include the three aircraft carriers and other ships.
It looks like little Kim has a lot of to learn about picking fights with America. I’m pretty sure fat rent-a-cops at your local mall are better equipped to engage in a firefight with the United States than Kim Jong Un’s out-of-shape Ray-Ban-wearing army of nerds who are trying desperately to pass themselves off as special ops forces! This guy seriously needs to take his ball and go home before he’s further embarrassed by the incredible arsenal of the United States military.
