"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

USS Carl Vinson is the aircraft carrier the American president claimed was heading in an Armada to 
North Korea. He was kidding. The ship was nowhere near Korea. 

Officials as usual, were left to explain the difference between facts and the President running -off at the mouth. 

The Chinese are not amused . The crazy coot in power in North Korea is threatening to sink USS Carl Vinson. it would seem to be a logical response . 

It wouldn't even call for a nuclear option. Plain old-fashioned TNT,in sufficient quantity, would likely do the trick in short order. 

It seems likely for North Koreans not to sit and wait for the Americans to board the ninety-five planes and helicopters on the carrier and scoot over to drop bombs on their heads. 

How often did we hear the clown in the Oval Office talk about the foolishness of letting the
enemy know intent  beforehand? 

As noted, the Chinese are reported to be angry. 

There's a Joker in the White House. A Joker in Pyongyang .No Batman. 

 6,000 young Americans  on the USS Carl Vinson wherever she is at the moment. 

Seems likely they will need to be on board to bring the cruiser off the coast of Korea . 

A nuclear submarine is to join the fleet.

More young Americans on board : fathers ,sons,brothers,maybe mothers,daughters and sisters. 

6,000 souls and then some. 

At home, mothers,fathers,wives,children,siblings....waiting.

I doubt that the Carrier Task Group (Carl Vinson and all of the other ships that surround her - including attack submarines) will allow anything to get close enough to the carrier to do any damage to her.

There is a weapon on board these ships called CIWS (Close In Weapon System) which is an ulta-high speed automatic gun that shoots so much lead at an incoming weapon (plane, missile, etc.) that it blows it up before it hits anything.

In addition, the support vessels are there to intercept any sea-going threat. Let's not forget the Carl Vinson also has about 60 combat aircraft to bomb the life out of North Korea and return safely.

North Korean leadership likes to plump themselves up. They need to remember what an Admiral on board one of the Pearl Harbour attacking ships said... "We have awoken a sleeping giant".

He still thinks he is in the world of wrestling where one calls out the opposition to try and weaken their resolve. Heck, he cannot even recall the threats from the day before. Within one brief span, he went from being determined to leave NAFTA to being all warm and cuddly about working with the other countries. Working with our PM with whom he claims to have a very, very good relationship.
