According to a very recent news report via VOA, the United States Navy is deploying a third aircraft carrier strike force to the Korean Peninsula, in what can be viewed as a final warning to the Pyongyang regime, aimed at deterring the crazy communist dictatorship to continue with its nuclear/ballistic missile programs.

It’s rather unusual for the United States Navy to deploy three aircraft super-carriers in the same area, in our case Western Pacific. One of the world’s largest vessels, the USS Nimitz respectively will join 2 other aircraft carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Carl Vinson, as North Korea’s growing missile/nuclear threat is perceived as a big security challenge for the POTUS, who has already pledged to prevent North Korea from being capable of striking the United States with a nuke. According to experts, the Pyongyang regime may acquire such weapons by the year 2020.

A conflict with North Korea would be nothing short of catastrophic, and these are the words of Pentagon chief, Defense Secretary James Mattis. “Mad Dog” warned the world earlier on Saturday that a full out war with the rogue Pyongyang regime would place the US and its allies in the region at extreme risk. Speaking on CBS, James Mattis said:

The North Korean regime has hundreds of artillery cannons and rocket launchers within range of one of the most densely populated cities on earth, which is the capital of South Korea. This regime is a threat to the region, to Japan, to South Korea. And in the event of war, they would bring danger to China and to Russia as well. But the bottom line is it would be a catastrophic war if this turns into a combat if we’re not able to resolve this situation through diplomatic means.

President Trump also warned last month about a possible major, major conflict with North Korea. And speaking of diplomatic solutions and impossible things, North Korea just launched another ballistic missile on Monday morning.
