how about we coerce the NK people like we did with Egypt and Lybia and others. we Can infiltrate the social North Korea, i imagine the people there are eager to know of an alternative.

lets exhaust all measures before an attack, congress will convince us of; and with 'proof' of their X plans. which so far is nothing but tests with archaic missile systems.
so far NK has done nothing wrong as its not part of any nuclear international treaties where they signed agreements not to pursue NUKES nor are they part of the IAEA

That many subs desending on a CAG would be seen from MILES AWAY(heard by radar/sonar)

You are talking about a direct frontal attack.
The smarter option would be a lie in wait tactic.
What would 6 torpedoes from a Romeo class sub do to a carrier that just passed overhead ?
Or the ramming from a Song-o- class ?
With 70 subs and numerous decoy speed boats the US would be on a tough position at the start.
This presupposes that NK used the element of surprise.

The British lost 6 ships in the Falklands. None by subs but I don't think they counted on losing 6.
You can't afford to under estimate an enemy that is sworn to destroy you.

Sam Do you not think each and every sub in NK hands Isnt being tracked right now? ALso SPeed boats are easily sank with CIWS and attacking a CAG with each ship has a integrated CIWS attack net with the group is suicide on open water. Its why you wont see a CAG attack Iran from inside the persian gulf In th eshallow water they are great but the speed boats SUCK in heavy sea and the NAVY isnt stupid enough to be at a disadvantage by walking into a shooting gallery.
