Report: Two More U.S. Aircraft Carriers to be Deployed to Korean Peninsula

According to South Korean news outlet Yonhap, the Pentagon has directed two more aircraft carriers to the peninsula.

In addition to the USS Carl Vinson, which is slated to arrive on April 25 off the coast of South Korea, two more vessels are to enter the Sea of Japan next week.

Zero Hedge reports:

While details are scarce, and we would urge confirmation from US-based sources, Yonhap also reports that according to the government source the operation of three aircraft carriers in the same location is unusual, and demonstrates the US commitment to North Korea.  Other sources said the Trump administration is demonstrating deterrence by acting on its behalf. “We expect it to be completely different from the previous administration.”

The U.S. and South Korea, according to a South Korean government official, are discussing joint drills that would ultimately include the three U.S. aircraft carriers and other vessels.
