White House Claims Miscommunication on Aircraft Carrier's Location

White House Claims Miscommunication on Aircraft Carrier's Location:  A senior Administration official says a miscommunication with the Pentagon and the Trump Defense Department was responsible for President Trump falsely claiming on Fox News that he was sending “a very powerful naval armada" to the Korean Peninsula, when those ships were actually on their way to military exercises out in the Indian Ocean, some 3,500 miles in the opposite direction. 

Interesting military strategy, provoking a hostile country with forces that are actually somewhere else!  Talk about a tactical genius!  I mean, so what if we lost track of an aircraft carrier and four warships for a while, or that the entire Defense Department along with the Secretary of Defense “Mad Dog” Mattis had no frigg'n clue as to where our ships were.  What’s the big deal?  

Instead of thinking negative things like “what could possibly go wrong?” - we should be thinking positive and asking “what could possibly go right?”  Think of it this way, if we have no idea what the hell we’re doing, how is the enemy supposed to figure it out?  I mean, hell - sometimes when I am playing video games like Civilization 6, I lose my aircraft carriers too - it happens.  Besides, what does any of this have to do with Benghazi or the Susan Rice unmasking scandal?

And to be completely fair, Trump only recently learned that the world is round.  He probably just assumed we could quickly have those vessels circle the globe and end up right back in the Korean Peninsula in no time at all.  Also, we did have Vice President Mike Pence in South Korea at the time, staring down the North Koreans from just over the border.  That is, until the North Koreans paraded out a bunch North Korean women - forcing Pence to leave immediately because his wife wasn’t there with him.

Luckily war had not yet begun else Trump et.al miscommunications may have mistaken our carrier for being his enemy's, though of course Trump could get away with sinking the carrier about like he could get away with murdering a journalist on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight like he claimed he could do when he was campaigning, that is lying, to be selected President.

He misplaced the Navy?

AKA, an important part of it, yes.

Moki Ikom,

The one thing I don't think Trump was lying about is that he could have gotten away with shooting someone on Fifth Avenue without losing significant electoral support. Nothing else stopped his voters, and the list of what should have stopped them is over twenty items long, any one of which should have been able to stop him.

Think i get it now on the Trumps' lost carrier strike group. Our President has the inside info on that and he knows his subs inside korea's economic zone, when not as well inside 12 miles offshore, could more than satisfy a wish to rectify the nuisance of, waste of patience on a gentlemen in n. korea... who would stay at a Seoul Trump Tower_ anyway plenty of population hubs to build on besides Seoul after the north is made to come to its senses. Our President has proven many times over that not unlike Cod in the Bible, Our President can accomplish great things in just a week. Knowing Our President the way we do we have every reason to believe He, Trump alone, can do it in six days or less.
