In the light of current statements from the militant North Korea, the US Navy decided to move the missile destroyer to the Korea water area, the United States Ministry of Defense reports.
The representative of the Pentagon said about the movement of the Fitzgerald missile destroyer “Fitzgerald” in the water of the DPRK. The warship is equipped with an Ijis information and control system, which simultaneously ensures the tracking and defeat of both targets on water and land, and air and underwater targets. The destroyer Fitzgerald (Fitzgerald) participated in the large-scale maneuvers “Foal Eagle” (“Young Eagle”), the annual joint American-Yuzhno-Korean teachings. A warship, instead of returning to a permanent base in Japan, was occupied by a position off the coast of South Korea. Also in this zone to track the launch of missiles, the floating radar of the X-band is transferred. The purpose of these actions is to intimidate Korea in response to the oratory attacks of her government. At the same time, the US Department of Defense, contrary to the warlike rhetoric of Pyongyang, does not see real changes in the deployment of the North Korean forces. As stated on Monday by the White House, large -scale mobilizations and movements of armed groups are not observed. The majority of the population of South Korea supported the opinion that the aggression of Kim Jong -un, the North Korean leader is just bluff. The question remains – why? Experts believe that the actions of Chen Eun are caused by the process of consolidation of power and the elimination of rivals. However, Park Chin Hye, the president of the republic and its supreme commander in chief, was given the powers of the South Korean army for an immediate response impact without additional approvals with Seoul. She called the escalation of the threats of the North “very serious” and entrusted the military to take measures to respond to the alleged sharp and sudden provocations of North Korea.
