President Donald Trump deployed the carrier strike group, the U.S.S. Carl Vinson, to North Korean waters after the rogue nation conducted more missile tests, and the move apparently has the Chinese on edge.
The Daily Mail is reporting that China is making major military preparations in response to the carrier group being diverted from its planned trip to Australia. Over a hundred thousand troops from the People’s Liberation Army are being amassed at North Korea’s border in case America launches a pre-emptive strike against the small nation.
More from the Daily Mail:
The Chinese army has deployed 150,000 troops to the North Korean border to prepare for pre-emptive attacks after the United States dropped airstrikes on Syria.
President Donald Trump‘s missile strike on Syria on Friday was widely interpreted as a warning to North Korea.
The troops have been dispatched to handle North Korean refugees and ‘unforeseen circumstances’, such as the prospect of preemptive attacks on North Korea, the news agency said.
Meanwhile, the US Navy has moved the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group from Singapore to North Korea after the country conducted more missile testing.
China’s top nuclear envoy arrived in Seoul Monday for talks on the North Korean threat, as the United States sent the naval strike group to the region and signalled it may act to shut down Pyongyang’s weapons program.
Speculation of an imminent nuclear test is brewing as the North marks major anniversaries including the 105th birthday of its founding leader on Saturday – sometimes celebrated with a demonstration of military might.
Apparently, a nuclear test isn’t the only thing that’s brewing. North Korea is about to be in for a rude awakening after eight years of doing as it pleases while Barack Obama sat idly by.
For his sake, let’s hope the rotund little brat running the country smartens up, or else he may just find himself on the receiving end of a Tomahawk missile himself.
