Navy troops who were originally assigned to spend time in Australia are now headed to a Korean peninsula to prepare for any North Korea hostility. The North Koreans do not seem be standing down, and China is also unable to make the dictator cease aggressive actions.
We’re at a point where we have to prepare beyond words. With Kim Jong-un taking actions that could lead to U.S. attacks, the U.S. military also needs to prepare for the worst as North Korea becomes a real threat.
Kim Jong-Un Wants Attention
Lt. Col. Michael Waltz told Fox News:
“I think we’re seeing, part of the emerging Trump doctrine to say, “You have to have military forces standing behind your diplomats and diplomacy.” Otherwise, it’s just words. I think we’re moving beyond the point where we can just dismiss nuclear tests and missile launches by the North Koreans as a two-pot distractor that is behaving like a toddler to just get attention.”
“The North Koreans are developing very real capabilities…and they will be able to strike the United States within the next 3-4 years. As our intelligence agencies sees them marching towards that capability, there’s going to be a point where they cross a threshold, where we have to take that capability out, militarily.”
Trump Latest Escalation

The New York Times reports:
“The officer, Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., the head of the military’s Pacific Command, diverted the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson and its wing of fighter jets from a planned series of exercises and port calls in Australia, the command said in a statement. The Vinson and three guided-missile destroyers and cruisers steamed out of Singapore on Saturday for their new mission in the Western Pacific.
“Rerouting the naval armada is President Trump’s latest escalation in force against a potential adversary. Mr. Trump ordered a cruise missile strike last week against a Syrian military air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government that killed scores of civilians.”
