Media: The Pentagon does not exclude the transfer to the shores of the Korean Peninsula aircraft carrier "Ronald Reagan"

31
The US Navy may transfer the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan off the coast of Japan to South Korea in connection with another test of nuclear weapons in the DPRK, transmits RIA News message agency "Renhap."




“Early next month, the US-South Korean Key Resolve command exercises were planned to be held in South Korea, and in March, the Toxuri-Foul Needle joint maneuvers, which are considered to be a rehearsal of the war against North Korea in Pyongyang,” the agency reports.

According to Ronhap, “conducting a test of nuclear weapons in North Korea could be a reason to postpone military exercises in South Korea and Pyongyang will be sent a warning signal in the form of a direction to the shores of the Korean Peninsula aircraft carrier“ Ronald Reagan ”, which is based in the Japanese port Yokosuka.

The publication reminds that “Ronald Reagan” in October last year already participated in sea maneuvers in the Republic of Korea. At that time, about 5,4 thousand troops and about 80-ti combat aircraft were deployed on the aircraft carrier.

    I think the North Koreans are not very afraid. Yes, and Americans understand that this is a stupid PR move and without any consequences. And what’s important is the fact that the aircraft carriers are free and are not on the move now and are not yet in sight. China will probably say its five cents to the UN even though the third Kim’s regime is fed up with it.

          And the DPRK has already prepared for this nuclear hara-kiri - the whole country is one huge underground bunker and there are still a lot of surprises hidden - this nut is super strong and the United States is too tough for it.

      There is someone who thinks that the actions of the DPRK are the basis for the escalation of the conflict, carefully read this
      a nuclear test in North Korea could be an occasion for postponement military exercises in south korea

      That is, joint US-Korean exercises would be held anyway. The remaining bases are a smokescreen.

      Who is fed up with? To you personally? To me, the US regime is not that fed up, but also the final podz ... uh ... fed up. There is an incomparably greater threat to peace from the States than from North Korea.

        Fed up with the Chinese. And it is precisely because North Koreans have atomic weapons. Let me remind you that they also came out with a "strong condemnation." Personally, they are attractive to me, and the trade turnover with them in Russia is gradually growing.

            If the Americans climb (seriously), Kim will not even have time to soften. Do not underestimate the Yankees. And they seem to tolerate him because he gives them a great chance to justify his military presence (and to build up such a presence) in this region with his banter.

      Well, for the past 70 years, the DPRK has not been very scared, but the South ones have most likely piled up in pants, along with the Japanese and mattresses, to reassure their vassals, the B-52 bomber was sent to Seoul, now an aircraft carrier.

        They are not the first time. I read somewhere that they fled to the South and founded it, including those Koreans who collaborated with the Japanese in World War II. Unlike the North, where, starting with Kim Il Sung, they actively fought with the invaders.

      Well, they’re not so backward. It’s just that they don’t follow exactly the same path — military affairs, defense, nuclear weapons, etc. are of course important and necessary for survival, but it is necessary that your population be full, not infringed, and most importantly be as interested in Kim’s power as possible.
      I would like them to establish not only trade, but also good-neighborly contacts with South Korea. Perhaps for Russia it is not very good if South and South Korea unite, but when the people are divided it is always bad.

        I agree that when the people are divided, it’s bad, but if we unite the two Koreas into one right now, we will most likely get NATO bases a stone's throw from Vladivostok. Do we need it ?! sad
        When the Yankees are bent, then let the Koreans unite, but it is too early.
        Please note that I sympathize with the people of North and South Korea and wish them happiness. However, for now - the Northerners are for us, and the Chinese are needed as a shield ... request

      So this aircraft carrier is not for North Korea - they are just a convenient excuse. But for us with the Chinese - is it really not clear? lol Gather forces under a convenient pretext.
      North Korea - the United States, Japan and South Korea, and without any aircraft carrier will be able to butcher if desired ...

    so tired when the Yankees once again want to scare some sort of small country. pulling the aircraft carrier to Korea, the size of the aircraft carrier is approximately equal to Korea. but this is humor. if seriously: let the Yankees sow. scare the Koreans. not the case and the people that can be scared.

      In this case, the Americans are not scared (they are well aware that the DPRK will not be scared by this), but they want to once again show the world that they have everything “under control”. Although in reality, not everything is under control.

    And it seems like there was an article recently that the states of aircraft carriers are not enough ... Or maybe they can sell a little "caliber" to the North Koreans ... or just lend. We do not need foreign aircraft carriers in those places ...

    You don’t worry so .. They are following the right path .. what do you think which way should they go when their southern neighbors do not even recognize them as a state until the moment of the formation of both republics in 1948 and when after the war of 1950-53 they didn’t with the southern neighbors nor with the USA there is not even a peace treaty to end the war .. i.e. they are still legally and in fact still at war with them .. As for satiety, infringement and interest in Kim’s power, everything is fine here too .. Yes, we don’t have such abundance .. Although on which side look. In there is a video on the Internet of their food supermarkets so there are full shelves of all sorts of things and their local production, restaurants, cafes, etc. so that’s all right with them .. About infringements .. They’ve got at least worse than their southern neighbors where even for listening to instrumental music even without words from North Korea you can get a prison term under the national security law as actions conducive to the enemy .. Well, interest in the regime of Kim the third they have oh what .. for example, he paid them 70% of the salary bonus for the party’s loyalty to all citizens of the country's adult population in the fall in honor of the 100th labor party of Korea their national holiday ..
    I would like them to establish not only trade, but also good-neighborly contacts with South Korea. Perhaps for Russia it is not very good if South and South Korea unite, but when the people are divided it is always bad.

    Yes, they themselves would not mind establishing trade and other ties and unite, but their southern neighbors do not want this, or rather, but only on the condition that North Korea is taken over by the south .. to which the northerners will never agree .. Russia, in principle, has always advocated a unification Korea as a single state but Alas ..! in the foreseeable future, this is simply not realistic ..

    North Korea, with all its shortcomings - has one huge plus - they live as they see fit ... Countries like North Korea are fragments of the former socialist camp and these fragments are surprisingly stable and viable !!! And they all side - how much America will attract aircraft carriers ??? Well, what's the point ??? - Let the Yankees at least immediately bring all the aircraft carriers ... What's the point? The brave dies once, and the coward dies every day !!!

    And North Korea shows the whole world that even a small country with nuclear weapons can send the United States and the rest of the capitalist West with the East far and nothing for them will not !!! Maybe America is so afraid of nuclear proliferation ??? - because the more countries get their atom, the less it will be possible to bomb just like that with impunity ... I can imagine how the Pentagon infuriates it !!!

    Well, at least with regard to North Korea, this statement is absolutely true ..! Their economy was originally built on the ideas of Juche, which means self-reliance .. And recently, I must say they have clearly demonstrated this .. In general, this country and this people are very nice to me .. a small country, a proud people, are not afraid of anyone and no one not jealous ..
    The brave dies once, and the coward dies every day !!!

    And it is precisely for this plus of them that the whole so-called civilized world community, led by the Americans, hates them. For the fact that such a small country has the audacity to snap and not bend under them and does not perceive all these so-called Western civilizational values ​​.. That's why they are constantly being demonized, they are being sent some kind of scarecrow, a world horror story, wild barbarians, etc ...

    I agree. It is unlikely that the DPRK has adequate means of delivery. Their missiles, even if they manage to launch, will be targets for the American missile defense. The only option in my opinion for North Koreans to use nuclear weapons is land mines. Suicidal of course, but quite in their spirit.

    The states will play out that the Koreans will transfer a submarine with nuclear weapons to their shores
