The head of the Pentagon called a routine exercise with three aircraft carriers off the coast of the DPRK

21
On Monday, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis called on Monday the joint maneuvers in the Korean Peninsula water area, which began on Saturday with the participation of three American nuclear aircraft carriers Nimitz, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan with escort ships. He stated this in an interview with reporters at the Pentagon.


I heard about three aircraft carriers ... We are not going to send [to hold these maneuvers] any important signals. This is a common thing that we do with our allies. These are normal interoperability and interoperability actions.
- quotes Mattis, the press service of the defense department.

The head of the Pentagon called a routine exercise with three aircraft carriers off the coast of the DPRK


He admitted that there is nothing strange in the participation of three aircraft carriers in maneuvers. "We can certainly bring them together," the minister said, adding that the exercises were planned.

The maneuvers will last four days. 11 of American ships equipped with Aegis missile defense systems were also mobilized to participate in them. On the South Korean side, three destroyers will be involved, of which two are equipped with Aegis, as well as four frigates.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula remain due to the active development of the DPRK missile and nuclear programs, as well as military maneuvers of the United States and its allies in the region. In July, the DPRK twice tested ballistic missiles, 29 August and 15 September carried out two more missile launches that flew over the territory of Japan, and 3 September announced the successful testing of a hydrogen charge. In this connection, the UN Security Council sharply tightened the regime of international sanctions against the republic. transmits TASS

    I heard about three aircraft carriers ...

    It turns out the Minister of Defense I heard (interesting from whom) that three US carriers are in this region. Is that such a joke? Strange, but for Americans, exercises involving three aircraft carrier groups in an explosive region are commonplace. Indeed, in the military and political elite of the United States, group insanity.

      For Amers, the Minister of Defense has nothing to do with troops, nor with armed assaults, nor with displacement. He has slightly less authority than the Head of the Rear.

    And the stench themselves rise when the Russian Federation and the allies conduct exercises near the borders of NATO countries. Double standards as they are.

    Drive across the ocean at once three AUGs in one place for the sake of maneuvers, so this turns out to be a common thing? I think the American generals also reasoned roughly when they bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

      The United States seems to have no idea what kind of bazaar it is necessary to answer, especially for a bazaar confirmed by actions.
