North Korea could soon be hit with Washington’s military might as US forces group in the Western Pacific to send a message to volatile leader Kim Jong-un.  North Korea’s aggressive rhetoric has pushed the United States to reinforce its presence in the Western Pacific region. Footage from the US Department of Defence shows three US aircraft carrier strike groups sailing through the Sea of Japan

and the East China Sea as a warning to the unpredictable nation’s leader Kim Jong-un. Three enormous aircraft carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz, are pictured alongside their strike forces and a range of fighter jets as the vessels patrol the seas off the North Korean coast. In a statement, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said: “The US Navy mobilised three aircraft carriers and 11 Aegis destroyers, while the Republic of Korea Navy mobilised seven warships including two Aegis destroyers.”  MORE
