Two Giant US Aircraft Carriers In Show Of Force Off The Coast Of North Korea After President Warned Kim Jong-Un A Month Ago That Warships Were Heading For The Region

David Burke at the British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a piece on the U.S. naval show of force off the coast of North Korea.

Two US warships are carrying out a dramatic show of force close to North Korea's borders in the wake of missile launches by despot Kim Jong-un.

The huge aircraft carriers, seen together for the first time, have joined with Japan's maritime self defense force for drills in the Sea of Japan.

It comes days after the US Pacific Command reiterated its 'ironclad commitment' to protecting allies in South Korea in Japan following the launch of a short-range ballistic missile by Kim's regime.

  1. Paul, I've lost track of Navy matters, so you can help me. With Subic Bay and Cubi Point closed, where now is the major logistics support center for Westpac deployed units?

    1. Tim,

      Not sure. I'd have to do some research and contact a couple of people. Diego Garcia, Guam? The U.S. Navy still pulls into Subic Bay (My favorite place when I was a young sailor...)


    2. Paul, I was fortunate that I survived Subic Bay. It nearly destroyed me. Really!

  2. And is Diego Garcia still a factor?
