Suppose Obama will allow the NRO to "park" this baby over China so that we can check up on our debt balance sheets? A little cosmic audit?

Missed this eariler... that or Korea no doubt.

Growth of San Diego's Navy fleet tied to tension in Korea

The U.S. Navy has been shifting warships to San Diego from other ports in recent years to better prepare the Pentagon to respond to exactly the sort of military and political tension now occurring between North Korea and South Korea.

North Korea bombed the small South Korean island of Yeonpyeong on Nov. 23rd, killing four people. The bombing came as a US strike group led by the carrier George Washington was preparing to leave for a long-planned exercise with the South Korean Navy.

That exercise is going on now in the Yellow Sea.

[...]

"If the situation escalates, short of general war, I could easily imagine the US wanting a stronger show of force," John Pike, a defense analyst for Globalsecurity.org, said today. "If the CHICOMS (Chinese Communists) are unhappy about one carrier in the North China Sea, possibly their unhappiness at two carriers sailing in their Exclusive Economic Zone might prompt them to get off the dime and lean on North Korea."

Seems Pyongyang is about to implode...
