N. Korea brags that it can destroy our carrier group and leap tall buildings

Chubby Kim Jong Un, dictator of North Korea until death do he part, threatened to sink the carrier USS Carl Vinson to show us how tough he is as two Japanese Navy vessels joined our strike group for exercises in the Philippine Sea.

"Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," wrote North Korea's ruling Workers' Party's so-called newspaper, the Rodong Sinmum. 

The Rodong Sinmum is so "full of it" that even canaries refuse to deposit their droppings on its copy.

The paper likened the USS Carl Vinson to a "gross animal" and claimed a strike on it would be "an actual example to show our military force." 

What North Korea may not realize is that an attempted strike on the Vinson would result in a massive retaliatory response that would not look good on Kim's dictator resume.

President Trump ordered the carrier to sail off the Korean Peninsula in response to Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests. The tests are in violation of the agreement they signed with the Bill Clinton scandal administration.

Vice President Pence said on Saturday that the group would arrive "within days."

The Vinson along with two U.S. warships were joined by two Japanese destroyers as they headed north in the western Pacific Ocean. The U.S. group includes a guided-missile cruiser and a guided-missile destroyer.

The Navy says the exercise is "routine: and is designed to improve combined maritime response and defense capabilities and joint maneuvering proficiency.

According to analysts, North Korea may be preparing for its sixth nuclear test after a failed missile launch ahead of the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army.

The Hermit Kingdom conducted two nuclear tests last year and three prior to that. It's thought that they are working on developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland.

If it gets to that point, I suspect we'll go preemptive.
