USS Carl Vinson carrier group expected off Korea at end of April

USS Carl Vinson carrier group expected off Korea at end of April”

The U.S. Navy strike fleet headed by USS Carl Vinson was thousands of kilometers away from the Korean peninsula last weekend.

"A carrier group is several things".

Lu Chao, director of the Border Studies Institute at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences, said the latest test, despite its failure, could be another defiant message from Pyongyang that it will not change its tough stance in the face of U.S. pressure even amid a growing threat of military action.

Deployed from San Diego to the Western Pacific since January 5, the Strike Group has participated in numerous bilateral exercises with the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force and Republic of Korea Navy, various maritime security initiatives, and routine patrol operations in the South China Sea. In fact, on April 11, the Navy oiler Pecos replenished the group there, the Navy reported.

As tensions were rising, a U.S. Navy carrier strike group was believed to be moving into waters off Korea, and Pyongyang was suspected of preparing for another nuclear test. "You never know", Trump replied.

Mr. Trump described the force as an "armada" and said the submarines being sent were "far more powerful than the aircraft carrier".

Last Tuesday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said at the Pentagon, "She's on her way up there [toward the Korean Peninsula] because that's where we thought it was most prudent to have her at this time".

This false narrative fed into Trump's muscular image after the Syrian strikes and stoked fears that a preemptive attack on North Korea was in the works.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is on board an American aircraft carrier stationed in Japan amid heightened tension on the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea has conducted yet another missile test.

As recently as Thursday, China once again attempted to play peacemaker between the U.S. and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, calling on both sides to avoid a military conflict while asking the latter to curb a nuclear program that's always been outlawed by the United Nations.
