US aircraft carrier-led strike group headed toward Korean Peninsula

http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/08/politics/navy-korean-peninsula/index.html

A US aircraft carrier-led strike group is headed toward the Western Pacific Ocean near the Korean Peninsula, a US defense official confirmed to CNN.

The move of the Vinson strike group is in response to recent North Korean provocations, the official said.
Adm. Harry Harris, the commander of US Pacific Command, directed the USS Carl Vinson strike group to sail north to the Western Pacific after departing Singapore on Saturday, Pacific Command announced.

8. From your link:

... It is not clear how wide-ranging the new authorities are. According to the Examiner, Pentagon officials did not discuss the extent of the powers to avoid tipping off potential targets.

"Our goal is for enemy to be surprised and caught off guard..."

7. North Korea's launch of yet another ballistic missile poses unacceptable risks to U.S. allies.

 

"North Korea's launch of yet another ballistic missile poses unacceptable risks to U.S. allies. At some point in the future, North Korea will develop an ICBM that can land on U.S. soil. We can Tweet about the North Korean missile threat or we can take concrete action to defend our nation. We need to invest in countermeasures to this pervasive threat by increasing missile defense funding and allocating more resources to developing platforms that can counter North Korea's eventual ability to strike the United States.
