N. Korea Is Ready to Sink a US Aircraft Carrier; Can Sink Nuclear-Powered Carrier with 1 Strike

North Korea said today (April 23, 2017) that it was ready to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military might, in the latest sign of rising tension, according to the Reuters website.

The U.S. ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to sail waters off the Korean peninsula in response to mounting concern over North Korea's nuclear and missile tests, and its threats to attack the United States and its Asian allies.

"Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," the Rodong Sinmun -- the newspaper of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party -- said in a statement.

The paper likened the aircraft carrier to a "gross animal" and said a strike on it would be "an actual example to show our military force."
