BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:34 A.M.) – The United States has announced that it is sending a nuclear submarine towards the Korean peninsula where the US are making aggressive moves towards North Korea.

The movement came after North Korea threatened to sink the US aircraft carrier, USS Carl Vinson.

“Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,” the ruling Workers’ Party’s newspaper said in a commentary on Sunday.

The article said Pyongyang had weaponry that “can reach continental US and Asia Pacific region.”

A statement from US Naval Forces Korea, Lieutenant commander Matt Knight with US Pacific Fleet, told Fox News that the submarine’s visit as “routine deployment.”

“US Navy ships and submarines routinely make port calls in a variety of locations,” he said.

“As a matter of routine, we do not discuss future operations or the details regarding the operations of our submarines. USS Michigan is currently on a routine deployment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific,” he added.

There are ALWAYS submarines escorting a carrier-fleet. USS Michigan is a SSGN, in other terms a Tomahawk-launcher with 154 onboard. Nevertheless, nuclear subs are good for high seas. Small diesel AIP ones are at HIGH advantage as long as it comes to operate along a continental plateau! It’s even more stupid to say you’re sending an attack submarine especially when you know that NK has more than 450 diesel minisubs, each one with a average 6 torpedoes onboard, sometimes 8. When you know how during NATO exercises, US Navy fleet had their asses kicked by sometimes a single EU diesel… Read more »
