China And Russia Chase US Destroyer Away After Trump’s Navy Creeps Up On North Korea

Trump’s loyalty to Vladimir Putin is being tested like never before. On one hand The DonaldĀ really wants a war with North Korea. On the other, both Russia and China have told him to back the f*ck off — and the Associated Press reports that these warnings are becoming more forceful after Trump’s Navy sent a Destroyer into the Korean Peninsula:

China and Russia have dispatched intelligence-gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is heading toward waters near the Korean Peninsula, multiple sources of the Japanese government revealed to The Yomiuri Shimbun.

It appears that both countries aim to probe the movements of the United States, which is showing a stance of not excluding military action against North Korea. The Self-Defense Forces are strengthening warning and surveillance activities in the waters and airspace around the area, according to the sources.

The aircraft carrier strike group, composed of the Carl Vinson at its core with guided-missile destroyers and other vessels, is understood to be around the East China Sea and heading north toward waters near the Korean Peninsula.

China and Russia, which prioritize stability in the Korean Peninsula, showed concern over the tough U.S. stance, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov saying the issue should be resolved peacefully through political and diplomatic efforts.

The dispatch of the intelligence-gathering vessels appears to be partly aimed at sending a warning signal to the United States.

Recently, Donald Trump stopped calling China a “currency manipulator” after his companies were granted 38 lucrative trademarks in the country (including for an escort service). As for Russia, we all know what Putin’s people did for The Donald.

At this point, it is surprising that the United States has any allies left given how Trump has treated them, and countries like Russia and China with whom we enjoy a shaky relationship at best (especially when the former recently committed numerous acts of war against the U.S. during the election), and Trump is testing our bonds with every single friend and frenemy we have.

As Trump pushes us toward war with North Korea, he fails to consider that both Russia and China are likely to step in if he goes all Rambo on the tiny island dictatorship.
