North Korea: US and Japan's eye-full of massive warships training for battle (Video)

If the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un looked out into the Sea of Japan on Thursday, he would have got an eye-full of massive warships training for battle in his backyard.

U.S. Navy officials said that the USS Ronald Reagan and USS Carl Vinson strike groups trained with 10 other warships, including two carrier air wings, in the largest display of naval power near the peninsula since North Korea conducted successful missile tests last month.

According to the Pentagon, “Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) and U.S. Navy forces routinely train together to improve interoperability and readiness to provide stability and security for the Indo-Asia Pacific region.”

North Korea, having vowed to create a nuclear missile with the capability of reaching the U.S., successfully carried out three ballistic missile tests last month. Earlier this week, dictator Kim Jong Un promised to send the U.S. a bigger “gift package.”

For the first time in nearly three years, the U.S. military conducted a successful missile intercept test on Tuesday in which they shot down a mock nuclear, according to the Pentagon.

North Korea’s latest test took place on Sunday. The rogue country launched a short-range Scud ballistic missile off its eastern coast, which flew for six minutes before splashing down in the Sea of Japan.
