Fake US Escalation With North Korea Blamed on 'Miscommunication'
It's all a distraction. Throw your television out the nearest window
We're still shocked by the level of laziness and cynicism that the media has shown over the last week as it attempts to scare the pants (trousers, for the crumpet-eaters) off every human with an electronic device.
We're still not going to war with North Korea, especially because the mighty US flotilla that everyone said was anchored off the coast of North Korea is actually 3,500 miles away.
It wasn't a navigational error. It was a hoax to keep you distracted, hopeless and glued to your television. Sorry?
As CNN reports:
As the White House was talking about sending a naval "armada" to the Korean Peninsula, the very ships in question were on their way to participate in military exercises in the Indian Ocean, some 3,500 miles in the opposite direction.
A senior administration official blamed a miscommunication between the Pentagon and the White House over reports that the aircraft carrier has not made its way to the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, as an expected show of force to North Korea.
The official blamed the mixup on a lack of follow-up with commanders overseeing the movements of the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: We're being played. The North Korea "threat" is an extremely expensive, theatrical distraction.
Look, they even gave Mike Pence one of those dumb Members Only leather jackets to wear while he threatened North Korea on a boat near Indonesia:
