Amid mounting tensions, the US military headquarters @ the Pentagon directed three US Aircraft Carriers toward the Korean peninsula in a stand-off against North Korea.
Washington and Seoul are discussing to hold joint drills, which will include, the USS Carl Vinson, USS Ronald Reagan and USS Nimitz, to enter the Sea of Japan by April 25, 2017.
In the meanwhile the North Koreans deployed some of their nuclear armed submarines to the Pacific heading for the US coastline in case of a military confrontation with its arch-enemy. American submarine hunters are desperately trying to locate the North Korean subs, without any success so far.
At the same time, Russia and China have dispatched warships from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group into the East China Sea.
If the USA decides to attack North Korea anyway, China will jump in a help protect the damage to avoid getting war victims as refugees into their country.
