 What exactly is that ship supposed to do?

Look up the phrase "projecting power", and then look up what the capabilities of this ship and it's crew have.

Then educate yourself as to what other countries have the abilities or should I say capabilities to project said power.

Then you will be able to answer your own question here! (Oh the "ship" itself wont do squat, but the over 5,000 men and women on board, could turn NK into a parking lot, if so ordered!)

Empty posturing. What exactly is that ship supposed to do?

Posture. But far from empty.

Canada has no free will

Is this like that time you tried to claim America isn't a democracy?

America! ... Chances are good the special forces won't enter your room this night.

I've said bad stuff about the governments of America, China, and Russia on the internet lots. But I still feel safe to enter America, while I will never enter China (again) or Russia, as I don't trust they wouldn't disappear me.

The countries are hardly equivalent. America has it's problems, but its government is infinitely a more democratic and transparent than any dictatorial nation like China or Russia.

Another hour another screed. Let's see what we got here.

America needs to get out of everyone's faces.

And yet nothing for China, Russia, NK, or Iran. The silence is deafening.

No one is in its face because America has murdered everyone that was in its way such as the Native Americans, the Spanish and the Mexicans.

Thank you for reciting our history while ignoring Canada, the UK, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia, Japan, etc. etc.

One would think utter dominion over 1/6th of the globe ( Canada has no free will) would be enough for the oligarchy of one nation, but not that rogue nation.

The US doesn't have 11 timezones. If we have a hemisphere clear of marxism, it is because we have worked hard to make it so. Mostly by making friends, as we can see by our neighbors not turning against us like Russia. I know that upsets you.

The greed of the American oligarchy is insatiable, and they have made America the greatest threat to peace in the world, and even the greatest threat to the continued existence of humans and even all life on Earth.

America! America! America! Sleep tight, Keepyer. Chances are good the special forces won't enter your room this night.

Thank you, sir. You Canadians are alright. We're all just struggling to make sense of the new cold war and the rise of populism.

The anti-freedom, anti-democracy, pro-totalitarian supporters are rattled - and nervous.

The men and women of the USS Ronald Reagan are clearly doing their job well.

So I guess that means NK will stand down in any conflict then. Is that a disappointment for you?

If that's what it takes to let Kimmy know that he can't pull any shenanigans while the world is focused on Ukraine, Israel, etc. then so be it. America has a REAL POTUS who kisses nobody's fanny and Kimbo needs to be told that he'd better leave SK, Japan, etc. alone. And the same goes for the CCP - while I don't think they're taking sides in these wars, they need to be reminded with the same message. MYOB, Kim and Xi!

Kim also hoped that the Russian people would defeat “the imperialists’ persistent hegemonic policy and moves to isolate and stifle Russia,”

Quite ironic considering Russia are the imperialists in the Ukraine war.

Why the US need all those hundreds of military bases all around the globe?

Why does that matter to you? Were you planning on some nefarious activities but the US and our allies are standing in your way?

American national security is not in South Korea or this side of the Pacific ocean. Its back over there between the east Pacific and west Atlantic oceans.

What exactly does National Security mean to you? We have allies, companies, and citizens almost everywhere. If shipping gets cut off in East Asia, that would affect our national security, would it not?

The American government thinks otherwise. Should we give a government more credibility in knowing what is right for them, or some anonymous internet poster?

Actually, US national security is in the region. North Korea getting sophisticated weapons technologies should concern everyone. Also, they have just been participating in joint exercises with South Korea and Japan.

MYOB, Kim and Xi!

Its not their carriers in the Caribbean docking in Mexico near the U.S.

You have to have carriers and friends first to deploy carriers overseas.

American national security is not in South Korea or this side of the Pacific ocean. Its back over there between the east Pacific and west Atlantic oceans.

Nope. Everywhere there is a NATO or security treaty member, the US' national security is involved. Peking and Moscow don't get to crush democracies for free.

MYOB, Kim and Xi!

Its American carriers in the Sea of Japan and maybe Yellow Sea docking in South Korea near China, North Korea, and Russia.

the USS Ronald Reagan

Should be renamed the "USS Iran-Contra" to properly reflect that man's legacy.

And yet nothing for China, Russia, NK, or Iran. The silence is deafening.

None of those have 800 military bases and aircraft carriers all around the world, and are continuously engaging in the kind of disastrous "democracy building" that the people Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Kosovo, Grenada and countless other places experienced. I am no friend of the CCP, but your slogan needs some perspective.
