About those Trump Claims that USS Carl Vinson was "steaming" to North Korea..

Steaming? The USS Carl Vinson must have been a 'steamin' angry ship, ready to fight? Besides being nuclear powered (steam generation) I guess we were supposed to believe steamin' angry because that's certainly how the media reports prior to the Easter week end were spinning. As if confrontation was imminent!

Here's the post from April 14/17: US prepares preemptive strike against North Korea before another nuclear test. Link embedded within.

My opening thoughts -This is alarming if even remotely true. Though it feels like fear mongering. Thoughts?

Hattip to Davoh for letting me know, indeed, the news from last week was simply fear mongering. Davoh left me two links which will be posted below Davoh's edited comments

So, what's true?......
You posted this on Friday 14th. Two articles in Australian media today suggest otherwise......
 All that drama and fear over the week end regarding imminent danger was bullshit! Distractionary bullshit to up the fear over the holiday.

Trump is fake news!  Always has been.

USS Carl Vinson wasn't heading to North Korea as Trump administration originally suggested
A "very powerful" US Navy armada which the Trump administration said was heading towards the Korean Peninsula to deter the North from carrying out a nuclear test was actually carrying out exercises with the Royal Australian Navy thousands of kilometres away in the Indian Ocean, the ABC has confirmed

As tensions soared on the Korean Peninsula earlier this month, the US Government said the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier was being dispatched to the Sea of Japan to send a "powerful signal" to North Korea.

But instead of heading straight towards the Korean peninsula the US strike group instead conducted planned exercises with HMAS Ballarat in the Indian Ocean.

Senior Australian defence sources say the US carrier group is now gradually making its way closer to North Korea.

According to images released by the US Navy on Saturday the carrier group passed north through the Sunda Strait, the passage between the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java, which is about 5,600 kilometres from Korea.

 White House all at sea over claims flotilla was heading to North Korea
 A US aircraft carrier-led flotilla that the White House said last week was “steaming” towards North Korea to increase pressure on Pyongyang was actually thousands of miles away heading in the opposite direction.
On 11 April, the defence secretary, Jim Mattis, said the Vinson was “on her way up” to the peninsula. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said “when you a see a carrier group steaming into an area like that [it] is clearly a huge deterrence”.
The following day,(April 12) Donald Trump said: “We are sending an armada. Very powerful.”
 I put up my post on April 14/17
The US ratcheted up its rhetoric ahead of North Korea’s military parade and failed missile launch over the weekend.
Yes it did. Though it's obvious the defence secretary would have known exactly where the carrier was! He surely had easy access to that information!

 In Washington, officials are facing questions and criticism over the location and original course of the Vinson flotilla, after it was photographed 3,500 miles away from North Korea, sailing south in the Sunda Strait at a time officials said it was sailing north.
 Psychological operation via the media...
Can I be any more digusted?

"Barkey-ing" the Turkish Referendum


  1. I see two other possibilities. One stems from Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" and has to do with deception. When near, seem far away. When far away, seem near. The second has to do with the realities of military command and whether or not in fact The Donald is in command. The two overlap, but maybe they don't. Maybe The Donald is not in charge nor in command of the necessities for being commander. But it's always good form to keep the enemy in a state of confusion about who's in command. Given the intense Zionist control of the White House, it's always good to consider the state of current national allegiances. Who is fighting whom?

    1. Hi Editor; I agree about deception if you mean the masses being deceived via a psyop-

      Surely China, Russia et al would have known the location of that ship- Probably NK also- So, I don't think they would have been deceived. (satellites)

      Military command may be something else entirely BUT "On 11 April, the defence secretary, Jim Mattis, said the Vinson was “on her way up” to the peninsula"

      So did the defence secretary deceive Trump too?

      I don't know?
      Or were they all bolstering a scare mongering narrative?

      Personally, no offence to anyone, I think Trump is "the show" The distraction.

  2. i think its clear trump has no idea whats going on at all. my susgestion for him would be to get on the net and get a clue.

    1. I don't know about that, I think that Trump is very capable, but because of the act he is pulling of as a person he generates alot of attention to himself to keep people occupied with him and lets say he isin't enough there are more than enough stuff going on in the world which they can pull in the headlines to keep the populous distracted.

      At least this is my take on the matter.
