WTF is going on in Korea...3 carriers? UPDATE!

Thanks to Sam for the link!

via VOA
The United States is sending a third aircraft carrier strike force to the western Pacific region in an apparent warning to North Korea to deter its ballistic missile and nuclear programs, two sources have told VOA.

The USS Nimitz, one of the world’s largest warships, will join two other supercarriers, the USS Carl Vinson and the USS Ronald Reagan, in the western Pacific, the sources told VOA's Steve Herman.
This is somewhat alarming.  Everyone is still on alert, 3 carriers are about to be in the region, the rest of the Navy has gone silent, the 2nd ID is acting like they're Delta Force and you don't hear or see them at all...and the usual loud as hell, chest thumping USAF Pacific is church mouse silent.

Wow.  If I didn't know better I'd think we were seeing a combatant commander assembling forces before a planned assault.

Why aren't we seeing more ground troops moving?  My guess is because someone wants to test out the Air-Sea Battle, but that's just crazy talk right?

I mean no one would want to do a quick, hardcore, air - sea assault (meaning aircraft, cruise missiles...not an amphibious assault) on the little fat boy's nuke facilities would they?

Update! Hey guys, I don't think many are understanding what a big deal this is.  When we send a carrier to a region, its not just a carrier but a carrier battle group! This news means we have 3 carrier battle groups near Korea. That is unusual to say the least and a MASSIVE show of force. Think about US commitments worldwide.  If the US is deciding to put this many carriers off the coast of Korea then its not for fun and games.
