WEB Notes: If North Korea successfully launched a cruise missile then why are two US carrier groups sitting within range?

North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) announced on June 9 that the communist state had test-launched a new type of cruise missile capable of striking U.S. and South Korean warships off its coast. The test may have been intended to send a threatening message to the United States, which has two carrier strike groups in the waters between the Korean peninsula and Japan, with a third carrier group now being sent to the region.

“This new-type cruise rocket is a powerful attack means capable of striking any enemy group of battleships” attempting to attack North Korea and can be used “at will,” KCNA said.

USA Today reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un observed the launches, according to KCNA, which said the missiles “accurately detected and hit” floating targets at sea after making “circular flights.”

South Korean observers said the missiles traveled about 125 miles before splashing down in waters between the Korean Peninsula and Japan, where the U.S. aircraft carriers USS Carl Vinson and USS Ronald Reagan participated in joint exercises with the South Korean Navy that ended earlier this week.

  1. Are they hoping to provoke Jong-un into taking a shot? That would be bad for Kim. No proxy army needed to remove him.
