No, wait!  WTF is going on?  There are not 3, not 2, not 1, but NO carriers in the Sea of Japan.  WW3 is postponed - there's an important exercise with the Australians in the Indo-Pacific to deal with first, THEN we'll get round to the naughty North Koreans.

Kim must be laughing his head off, and China-Russia, who presumably could see by satellite the USS Carl Vinson was sailing SOUTH from Singapore, must be thinking "What a bunch of amateurs !"

Aircraft Carrier Wasn’t Sailing to Deter North Korea, as U.S. Suggested

As Charlie Pierce said apropos this:

Let us catch our breath for a minute and take stock.

These people misplaced an entire carrier attack group and then tried to bluff their way past it in a way guaranteed to make a crazy guy with a bad haircut and a huge army nervous.

"Got To Behave" 

Like I said before, it's all about posturing. 8)  North Korea has been at this for a while. BUT Trump is a bird of exactly the same BULLSHIT feather.

More TRUMP-like posturing behavior in video below:


Ya know, I do believe Trump is in to Tom Clancy novels. In one of those tales, a carrier group was sent to attack Japan (the bad guys in that particular novel) while CNN continued showing reruns of THAT aircraft carrier in the group in dry dock for repairs as if they were still going on. This latest BLUFF by Trump may be something like that, but in reverse.
