White House requests $4B for missile defense to counter North Korea

The largest US warship in Asia, the USS Ronald Reagan, will join the USS Nimitz and the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the naval exercise on November 11-14. A decade ago, Valiant Shield (VS) 2006 and 2007 had operated together off the coast of Guam, a US island territory in Micronesia, and focused on the ability to bring together forces from all the three strike groups in response to any regional situation.

Animosity between the USA and the isolated regime could increase further when the first three-aircraft carrier exercise begins on Saturday.

"It is a rare opportunity to train with two aircraft carriers together, and even rarer to be able to train with three", U.S. Pacific Fleet Commander Adm. Scott Swift said in a statement.

Trump also noted that the three US aircraft carriers "are appropriately positioned" near the Korean Peninsula.

USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63) and USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) Carrier Strike Groups transit in formation during a joint photo exercise (PHOTOEX) during exercise Valiant Shield 2007.

The U.S. 7th Fleet, which announced the exercise yesterday, have said it will demonstrate its resolve with allies Japan and South Korea.

The new missile defense funding will address an increasing threat from North Korea, Trump said.

Units assigned to the strike force will conduct coordinated operations in worldwide waters to demonstrate the U.S. Navy's unique capability to operate multiple carrier strike groups as a coordinated strike force effort.

The U.S. has sent a number of its so-called strategic assets to the area - including carriers, heavy bombers and high-tech submarines - as part of a concerted push to heap pressure on North Korea to rein in its nuclear and missile programs. "As long as the United States and its followers continue their hostile acts against us, we will further bolster our nuclear, precious sword of justice", said a dispatch carried by the North Korean daily Rodong Sinmun shortly ahead of Trump's arrival.

In a commentary Monday, North Korean state-run media said that "that no one can predict when the lunatic old man of the White House, lost to senses, will start a nuclear war against the DPRK".

Their presence is a formidable show of force against North Korea.

The request also includes costs associated with increased U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan in support of my Administration's South Asia strategy.
