Carrier strike group heads toward Korean Peninsula

(Worthy News) - The Pentagon says a Navy carrier strike group is moving toward the western Pacific Ocean to provide a physical presence near the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea’s recent ballistic missile tests and continued pursuit of a nuclear program have raised tensions in the region, where U.S. Navy ships are a common presence and serve in part as a show of force.

The U.S. Pacific Command directed the carrier group to sail north to the western Pacific after departing Singapore on Saturday, according to a Navy news release. The carrier group includes the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, with support from several missile destroyers and missile cruisers. [ Source ]

  1. The New World Order is already here. It's been here all along under a pseudonym.......The American Empire!
    Now the Empire is sending forces all over the globe through its over 1,000 military base reach; 10,000 miles to the East against Russia, 10,000 miles to the West against Korea. Can the U.S. take on the whole world at the same time?
    Oh, I don't think the Pentagon has thought that far. They've got all those glorious Hollywood victories and their image to protect.
