US aircraft carrier leads drills with South Korea
It is unfortunate that the US Navy is smaller than it has been since the First World War, over 90 years ago. It is doubly unfortunate and unnecessary that Obama is effectively scrapping our nuclear deterrent.
We should have 3 Carrier Battle Groups off both the East and West coasts of the Korean peninsular. We should have Brigade size Amphibious forces ready on each coast. We should have robust conventional and nuclear air and land based forces in theater. We should have the civilian population of Seoul prepared and drilled on how to evacuate on short notice.
This war has dragged on for over 60 years now. It is time to end it.
