Three U.S. aircraft carriers are now slated to sail in the nuclear armada heading for North Korea’s coast

(VERO BEACH, FLA) On Monday various news outlets reported that the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz will join the USS Carl Vinson in the Sea of Japan on April 25th. 

President Trump stated last week that a “very powerful” armada paired with submarines was being sent as a deterrent to North Korea’s nuclear belligerence. 

 “We are sending an armada. Very powerful,” Trump told Fox Business Network. “We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That I can tell you.”

Reuters reported that the several guided-missile destroyers from the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force may also join the battle group.

April 25th marks the 85th anniversary of the Korean People's Army.

Pravda, a news site closely affiliated with Russian intelligence, believes North Korea will conduct a regular missile test on April 25th.
