U.S. Navy sends strike group toward Korean peninsula

A U.S. Navy strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier was making its way towards the Korean peninsula Sunday “to maintain readiness” as Kim Jong Un’s regime in North Korea prepared to mark key anniversaries this coming week.

    Fair winds and following seas.

    Kim Fatty the Third is on notice: If he fails to smarten up, the tomahawks will start flying….

      I think it also sends a message to Kim Fatty’s protector, China. Without China N. Korea would have folded long ago.

    I know they are Americans, but it still brings to mind this:

    O Eternal Lord God,
    who alone rulest the raging of the sea;
    who has compassed the waters with bounds
    until day and night come to an end;
    be pleased to receive into Thy almighty and most gracious protection
    the persons of us Thy servants,
    and the Fleet in which we serve.

    Preserve us from the dangers of the sea,
    and from the violence of the enemy;
    that we may be a safeguard unto our most gracious Sovereign Lady,
    Queen Elizabeth,
    and her Dominions,
    and a security for such as pass upon the seas upon their lawful occasions;
    that the inhabitants of our Commonwealth may in peace and quietness
    serve Thee our God;
    and that we may return in safety
    to enjoy the blessings of the land,
    with the fruits of our labours,
    and with a thankful remembrance of Thy mercies
    to praise and glorify Thy Holy Name;

    This is a move long overdue. Trump got this one right.

    • What he should do is help the Koreans on either side of the border. If Thae Yong-Ho is right, all the Koreans need is a little push.
