(Reuters) - A U.S. aircraft carrier group set off for Korean waters on Wednesday, a day after North Korea rained artillery shells on a South Korean island, in a move likely to enrage Pyongyang and unsettle its ally, China.....

Didn’t the WH yesterday say they would not be moving naval assets toward Korea?
Or was this already scheduled?
Undoubtedly for allowing a place for the US Military to dump the helicopters after Bambi orders their retreat from Seoul.
Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep,
Its own appointed limits keep.
Oh hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea! Amen.
Eternal Father, lend Thy grace To
those with wings who fly thro’ space,
Thro wind and storm, thro’ sun and rain,
Oh bring them safely home again.
Oh Father, hear an humble prayer,
For those in peril in the air! Amen.
Oh Trinity of love and pow’r,
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour,
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them where so e’er they go.
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea! Amen.
This is for training that was already scheduled, but if Bambi is true to form, he’ll divert it. For the real story of Obama’s cowardice with North Korea, the Asia Times is a good source.
IIRC, joint naval operations were already scheduled. Don’t know if the DPRK’s latest stupidity changes naval plans any.
Don’t think it was a scheduled excercize. Looks more like we are trying to call N. Korea’s bluff.
this is gonna get real interesting if the NorKorComs try and take a shot at them. I betcha Bambi gives the order to turn tail and run. Will assure his exit from office sooner rather than later.
Obama’s delayed response to this incident of “outrage” is uncharacteristic and somewhat puzzling. The delay suggests that someone is giving him advice and he is taking it. He may be coming to realize that bowing and apologizing is not going solve the world’s problems. His foreign policy failures have been at least as spectacular as his domestic failures, if not more so.
Obama rules of engagement in full force?
the NKoreans probably would get off scott free if they sunk the carrier.....
I would not want to be part of that battle group.
This man just sent one of our carriers into harms way....how confident should we be.
unless bambam orders a strike of ROK...unfortunately a muzzcomm just might do that...
Nonsense. I doubt he is even aware of this info.
Maybe an NK sub will mysteriously “disappear” while stalking the aircraft carrier...
Lot's of utterly unconvincing saber rattling that's rivaled only the by worthless talk. Nothing of substance will be done and North Korea knows it. The window dressing isn't for China or Kim Il Jong, it's for the American and Korean public.
The only question is what will North Korea do in a few months to top sinking a warship and an artillery barrage.
