All Talk No Action: North Korea threatens to strike US aircraft carrier to show 'military's force'

Yada, yada, yada!  Military prowess?  Gimmie a break!
  If North Korea was going to do anything they've would've done it by now.  I'm firmly convinced this regime has gotten away with scaring past administrations and the The West.  But, President Trump is a different story and he's shown he's not a man of just talk.
Fox News reports North Korea threatened Sunday to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military prowess as two Japanese Navy ships joined a U.S. strike group for exercises in the Philippine Sea.
“Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," according to North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party’s newspaper, the Rodong Sinmum.
The paper also likened the USS Carl Vinson to a “gross animal” and said a strike on the carrier would be “an actual example to show our military’s force.”

President Trump ordered the USS Carl Vinson to sail to waters off the Korean Peninsula in response to the rising tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile tests and threats to attack the U.S. and its allies. Vice President Pence said Saturday that group would arrive “within days.”
