Wasn’t it just a Pentagon ploy to see how Kim Jong-Un would react to a confrontation, hoping that he would just throw in the sponge?

The media just passes along what SoD Mattis wants to pass along.

I can’t believe there isn’t a big world map Trump could look at with the locations of these task forces… like in all the movies.
It does look like a feint… and maybe to gauge China reaction too.

I think you and Trow are right – testing testing testing Kim Jong-Un… or it was an obvious provocation to give him an opportunity to demonstrate he is an even bigger threat justifying sending bigger fleets. I think there is algorithm programming in the N.Korea and western propaganda that hypes people up when N.Korea is obviously street theater. This is all just being way too overplayed to believe it.
