According to reports, the USS Carl Vinson, which is now stationed in the Korean Peninsula, is being trailed by Russian and Chinese submarines.
“Japan News” reported on Sunday that two intelligence-gathering vessels from the two countries have been spotted following the Carl Vinson’s carrier strike group.
The news comes one day after North Korea tried to launch a nuclear weapon on Sunday.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The New York Times has warned that North Korea’s nuclear sites also appear primed for a nuclear weapons test. That test, if it occurred, would be the sixth from the pariah nuclear state.
While many speculated that the Day of the Sun would be the ideal time for such a test to take place, North Korea will also be celebrating the 85th anniversary of its military’s foundation later this month; such an event would also provide another occasion for the Kim regime to conduct such a test.
President Donald Trump promised a hard-line approach to the North Koreans and responded to an earlier act of aggression by stationing the Carl Vinson in the Korean Peninsula.
“We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier,” Trump said. “We have the best military people on Earth. And I will say this: he is doing the wrong thing.”
China and Russia’s response to that decision shows that a conflict is brewing and that the United States may be forced to go to war in the not so distant future.
