War could be looming in the Korean peninsular


This photo sent chills down my spine. It looks like President Trump is making good his threat to take North Korea to task. According to this article in the New York Times:

WASHINGTON — The commander of American forces in the Pacific has ordered an aircraft carrier and several other warships toward the Korean Peninsula in a show of force by the Trump administration just days after North Korea tested another intermediate-range missile.

The officer, Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., the head of the military’s Pacific Command, diverted the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson and its wing of fighter jets from a planned series of exercises and port calls in Australia, the command said in a statement. The Vinson and three guided-missile destroyers and cruisers steamed out of Singapore on Saturday for their new mission in the Western Pacific.

Rerouting the naval armada is President Trump’s latest escalation in force against a potential adversary. Mr. Trump ordered a cruise missile strike last week against a Syrian military air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government that killed scores of civilians.

The thing that makes me jittery is the fact that the dictator of North Korea is, how do I put it, two cans short of a six pack. He just might retaliate with his nuclear arsenal. It is like a dog or a lion being backed into a corner. He will fight back with all things necessary. I sincerely hope that it does not come to this
