This is an alarming amount of firepower off the coast of Korea...

Zebra Dunn rattled off the power that we're seeing off the coast of Korea and while I initially asked "what the fuck is going on", I've now gone toward the position of saying "oh's about to get real"!

Zebra was spot on but let me highlight it for you...via Wikipedia...
A carrier strike group[1] (CSG) is an operational formation of the United States Navy. It is composed of roughly 7,500 personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, a destroyer squadron of at least two destroyers or frigates,[2] and a carrier air wing of 65 to 70 aircraft. A carrier strike group also, on occasion, includes submarines, attached logistics ships and a supply ship. The carrier strike group commander operationally reports to the commander of the numbered fleet, who is operationally responsible for the area of waters in which the carrier strike group is operating.
The stunning thing is that we've seen no reaction from China to this move.  Russia is silent on the issue too.

Check this out via Wikipedia...
A fleet or naval fleet is a large formation of warships, which is controlled by one leader[1] and the largest formation in any navy. A fleet at sea is the direct equivalent of an army on land.
If we heard that the 3rd Army was being activated and they were deploying to Saudi Arabia, everyone would be jumping thru hoops and the mainstream news media would be going ape shit.  We're seeing the naval equivalent off the coast of Korea and no one is even batting an eye.  I am dazed and confused by that.  I guess people really don't understand the military and don't get it when they hear the drumbeats of war.
