Trump Directs Massive Show Of Force To North Korea

Three US aircraft carriers will stage joint drills in the western Pacific for the first time in a decade, the US Navy announced Thursday.

The USS Ronald Reagan, USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt will conduct 'coordinated operations in international waters' as tensions in the region over North Korea reach fever pitch. 

The operation starting Saturday shows Washington's 'ironclad commitment to the continued security and stability of the region,' said Scott Swift, commander of the US Pacific Fleet in a statement.

On Wednesday, Trump warned North Korea not to 'try' the United States but appeared to moderate his bellicose tone, offering Pyongyang's young leader Kim Jong-Un a 'path to a better future.'
