Remember when Ol' Heel Spurs was going on about sending in *his* Navy? Like, you know, to rattle the Fat Little NORK's cage a bit.
“We are sending an armada, very powerful.”
Of course, this is from the lying and failing WaPo.
Instead of steaming toward the Korea Peninsula, the carrier strike group was actually headed in the opposite direction to take part in “scheduled exercises with Australian forces in the Indian Ocean,” according to Defense News, which first reported the story.
Neither the Pacific Command nor the Pacific Fleet responded immediately to requests for comment.
I'll bet they didn't.
It seems that Vinson and Carrier Strike Group 1 (aka 'the armada') won't be anywhere near Korea till the end of the month.
