The United States Navy has sent the Carl Vinson Strike Group to maintain a physical presnce near Northern Korea. The decision was made amid growing tensions between the United States and the Asian country.

““US Pacific Command ordered the Carl Vinson strike group north as a prudent measure to maintain readiness and presence in the western Pacific,” said Commander Dave Benham, spokesman at US Pacific Command.

“The No1 threat in the region continues to be North Korea, due to its reckless, irresponsible and destabilising program of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability,” he said, in an unusually forceful statement,” The Guardian reported on April 9.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation,” that he believes that China agrees the situation in North Korea has “intensified and has reached a certain level of threat that action has to be taken.”

On April 8, Northern Korea released a statement condemning the US missile strike on a military airfrield operated by the Syrian Air Force near the city of Homs.

“The U.S. missile attack against Syria is a clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn this,” the North Korea Foreign Ministry’s official said on the KCNA news agency. “The reality of today proves our decision to strengthen our military power to stand against force with force was the right choice a million times over.”

    This is only to provide appearance of strength after the failure of Tomahawk atatck on Syria . 39 out of 59 Tomahawks failed to reach target of Syrian base. Krasukha and other EW systems can defeat Tomahawk cruise missiles. DPRK use EMP storm to defeat electronic guidance of US conventional weapons. Aircraft carrier is conventional weapon and large target in nuclear war. The failure of Tomahawks makes conventional attack proves that the Tomahawk is not reliable against DPRK. . Carrier arrival is for show. In real nuclear exchange with DPRK the carrier consumes only 1 nuke as target. DPRK already has hundreds of layer cake nuclear weapons.

      Lmfao, keep listening to your retarded Russian propaganda. Russia has a weaker military than Italy LOL

      • Lars

        Pity the Italians are lovers not fighters.

      • Shhh

        ITALY has no nukes and no published independent program similar to Krasukha. Go back to bowling .

    • Mr. Perfect

      How did those anti-missiles do A few days ago? LOL

      • Shhh

        Its the first time that only 40 percent of cruise missiles reached target. To hit one taget with 90 percent propability it would be necessary to fire 10 Tomahawks. The best cruise missile system of USA is not reliable in EW environment. Duh. No I am not speaking of ABM but of electronic warfare. Study the public data on Krasukha as explanation for the anomaly. Also look at the event of EW on Donald Cook .

    • Thegr8rambino

      yea i bet only like 10 missiles will hit their target this time lol

      • Ted

        How does this logic work out for you people? Just curious? I get that mr perfect ruffles your feathers so your responses are tailored for that. But do you really believe this? You take comfort in the fact that when someone kicks your ass they missed a few punches? Cause that’s what you are saying here, its like your at a pubb with friends telling them that the guy who kicked your ass was really pathetic because he threw a lot of punches but only hit me half the time?I bet the next time he kicks my ass I get hit even less?

        • Thegr8rambino

          If u think the US “kicked ass” with its missile strike u are really retarded. That airbase suffered minimal damage and is now fully operational again

    • Ted

      This post above is the plot to a video game? Why not just tell everyone that the DPRK is going to use the sun satellite to obliterate South Korea from its ice palace? Mr Perfect may be an ass hole but hes probably a lot more in touch with reality then a lot of the crap posted on here.

  • Mr. Perfect

    America owns the world. Fuck all of you foreign faggots. USA USA USA USA USA USA USA

    • John Mason

      no way we will let you, there are better dogs down the road.

    • itibi ra

      Your responses once again underline how inane and feckless many americans are and why your country is falling apart. The sad part is, as a troll, you don’t even have a clue how ridiculous you are and sound.

  • Shhh

    Mr Perfect what is your best bowling game?

  • Thegr8rambino
