Japan has destroyers and warships steaming to join the American armada in the Korean peninsula.
The U.S. has sent the USS Carl Vinson to the region in a show of strength to let Kim Jong Un fully realize that America won’t stand for acts of aggression with their recent ballistic missile and nuclear warheads tests. The days of the passive Obama Admin are long behind us.

The Japanese navy announced Monday it is deploying two additional destroyers to join the US strike group. The Japanese deployment comes as Chinese President Xi Jinping urges all sides to ‘exercise restraint’ over the rising tensions between North Korea and the United States.
President Trump spoke with the leaders of Japan, South Korea, and China on Monday morning over recent intelligence that suggests Kim Jong Un may be planning another missile test, this time to celebrate the founding of the North Korean army on April 25.
South Korea also said it is actively considering sending its navy to join the US and Japan.
“The status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable,” Trump said at a meeting with the U.N. Security Council ambassadors, with Russia and China in attendance at the White House. “The council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions on North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile programs.”
