Three US Navy Carriers Conduct Joint Exercises

Three US Navy Carriers Conduct Joint Exercises

It was the first time three USA aircraft carriers have sailed together in a decade, CNN reported.

Both operations focused on the capacity to quickly unite forces from three strike force groups because of national circumstances.

Assigned Strike force Units will conduct series of operations in worldwide waters to practice the US Naval force's unique ability to operate different carrier strike groups as a fully coordinated military team.

A Hong Kong daily reports that China held a large-scale military exercise in response to the joint drill involving the South Korean Navy and three USA nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in the East Sea. The exercise involves air defense drills, sea surveillance, replenishment at sea, defensive air combat training, and close-in coordinated maneuvers among others.

It's the first time since a 2007 exercise near Guam that three U.S. carrier strike groups are operating together in the Western Pacific, according to the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet.

"The United States Navy is the only force in the world able to carry out such an exercise", a Navy official said Monday.

House 'Committed' to Retaining Some State and Local Tax Deductions, Chairman Says
Many Republicans have feared that they could write a tax bill only to have their effort shadowed by late-game commentary by Trump. Trump praised new bills in the House and Senate, called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), but suggested a few improvements.

The carriers conducted drills on either side of the waters separating the Korean Peninsula and Japan, a South Korean defense ministry official told CNN.

"U.S. Navy Carrier Strike Groups routinely deploy to the Western Pacific and the Indian Ocean", according to a Navy statement.

The exercises come after the US and South Korea in their recent annual meeting on defensive policy agreed to expand the rotational deployment of strategic American military assets such as aircraft carriers, submarines and bombers to the peninsula.

The USS Theodore Roosevelt strike group, including a cruiser and three destroyers, entered the Western Pacific region on October 23, joining the USS Ronald Reagan, Bloomberg said.

However, Pyongyangs state news agency accused the US and South Korea of attempting to escalate tensions in the region.
