That's an awful lot of power concentrated in one area. I think the message is quite clear at this point. NK and fat kid might think twice about sending out any more missiles in the wrong areas, or perhaps he is nuttier than most think.

US sends THIRD aircraft carrier near North Korea in shock war move

A THIRD aircraft carrier has arrived near North Korea in a shocking move amid growing fears of war with Kim Jong-un.

USS Nimitz has joined USS Theodore Roosevelt – dubbed the “Big Stick” – and USS Ronald Reagan in the western Pacific.

The 100,000-ton warship and its strike group joins the two carriers amid fears of war with North Korea.

Each vessel is accompanied with a cohort of destroyers and submarines, and USS Ronald Reagan has been carrying out war drills since last week.

It is unprecdented to three aircraft carriers in the region at one time, and is a huge gathering of US sea power.

Meanwhile, missile boss Thomas Kennedy assured Americans that Kim's missile can be shot down before they reach the US.

A defector from the rogue state has also spoken out revealing "life is hell" in Kim's kingdom as two other runaways are feared to have been kidnapped and returned to North Korea.

North Korea will be furious with the move, believing US military drills in the region are rehearsals for war.

The US Navy confirmed the arrival of USS Nimitz today as top officer Captain Carlos Sardiello promised the warships are “ready for anything”.

The massive carrier cost £3.5 billion ($4.5 billion) and is crewed by 7,500 sailors and marines.

It has a wing over 90 warplanes and helicopters which can take off from its massive 1,000ft long deck.

USS Nimitz arrival comes ahead of Donald Trump visit to the Korean Peninsula in early November.

The US Navy have not confirmed the carrier's mission, but experts have described it has sending a "significant signal" to North Korea.

For as long as I was in the Navy, and after seeing so many ships in person. I still am amazed, and wonder...HOW DOES SOMETHING SO BIG, WEIGHING 90,000 TONS stay afloat?
You have to stand on the pier next to one of those ships to feel TINY.
