In the midst of nuclear bullying with the North Koreans whereby the North Koreans have persisted in pushing Asia nations to the limit along with the US, Donald Trump blustered.
Mr. Bluster aka Donald Trump, diplomat, sent Mike Pence to the waterfront and rattled the cage that he has sent an armada too. Pence, the grimacing look-tough sort was there to assure allies.
Meanwhile, journalists tracking the US Carl Vinson armada found it in war-game maneuvers with Australia over 1,000 miles away from North Korea.
There are some problems here, but one thing must be underscored, and that is everybody can track ships. If you know where they are and have modern warfare, you can find them and sink them.
True is that the armadas are well defended. They can only defend so much before the run out of ammunition and become sitting ducks. That is the proverbial Achilles heal.
"North Korea tension: US 'Armada' was not sailing to Korean peninsula
Mike Pence calls North Korea 'most dangerous threat.'
A US aircraft carrier and other warships did not sail towards North Korea - but went in the opposite direction, it has emerged.
The US Navy said on 8 April that the Carl Vinson strike group was traveling to the Korean peninsula amid tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions.
Last week President Trump said an "armada" was being sent.
But the group was farther away over the weekend, moving through the Sunda Strait into the Indian Ocean."
