South Korea hopes to send a clear message to North Korea during the visit of US Vice President Michael Pence, spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cho June-hyuck said on Wednesday.

"As Vice President Pence's South Korean visit comes at a very sensitive time… A clear message on joint efforts in terms of the South Korea-U.S. alliance against North Korea will be sent out," the spokesman said, as quoted by the Yonhap news agency, stressing that this will be the first visit by Pence to Asia since taking office.

He added that the "message" would also be made clear on the issue of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system deployment in South Korea, which has been met with sharp criticism by China, who claim that the ballistic missile defense network will undermine security in Northeast Asia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One thing appears to be driving the US government's rush to war against North Korea; South Koreans go to the polls on 9 May to elect a new president. At the moment, there is a caretaker, transitional government in place until the results of the election are made known.

The last thing President Trump and his military advisors want is having to deal with a duly elected South Korean President, who wants to observe the "sunshine policy" of cooperation and trade with North Korea.

That's part of what is driving this furious rush to war, which appears to me to be happening sooner rather than later.

In fact, I would not be surprised if Trump ordered an attack on North Korea right after Easter Sunday, when Vice-President Pence will be spending the day with US troops in South Korea.
