The short, fat and insane dictator of North Korea has threatened to sink the USS Carl Vinson with a single missile. I say let him try. The USS Carl Vinson has an incredible amount of fighter jets and can launch dozens of missiles not to mention the fact that also located with that ship is the USS Michigan, a guided missile submarine. And Gen Mattis won’t even try to pretend he would use only one missile.
Just in from The Sun:
DELUDED despot Kim Jong-un has threatened to blow a US Navy flagship out of the water with “a single missile” as an American war fleet sailed to the Korean peninsula.
Squaring up to the trigger-happy dictator, the supercarrier riddled with jets and missiles quickly kicked off a joint drill with the South Korean Navy.
An American defence ministry spokesman said: “Immediately after the aircraft carrier arrived in the Sea of Japan, South Korea and the US strike forces launched a drill from 6pm Saturday.”
Hours earlier North launched a medium range ballistic missile despite Donald Trump warning of a “major, major conflict” if North Korea doesn’t fall into line.
But North Korea’s state media — a megaphone for tubby tyrant Kim Jong-un — said the its military is capable of sinking the aircraft carrier with a single strike.
This is quickly becoming a test of wills between Fudgie the Whale and President Trump. If Fudgie doesn’t think Trump is serious, he might want to contact his good buddy, Bashar Assad. That might clear up a few things for him. Kin Jong-un has a long history of making threats of war but the United States has an even longer history of winning wars prior to Johnson and Obama, neither on of which can stop victory for us now.
