Well, speculating, because it's a show of force as well, plus if you send a single cruiser out and it shoots down a missile it might be vulnerable all by itself, whereas if you send a carrier task group it's unlikely NK will fuck with them. But mostly I'm guessing it's a show of strength.

If I'm right, I hope they don't fuck up the intercept. Would be a serious blow to the confidence of our allies AND might be a dangerous boost to lil' Kimmy 3.0's to do something even more stupid than usual.
