Why are we still in South Korea?

Reader comment on item: Korean Delusions [of Appeasement]

Submitted by Joe Cunningham (United States), Oct 18, 2002 at 13:12

I am honestly sick of protecting these people who spit on our troops--troops who put themselves in harm's way so Koreans can spit on them. With the recent revelation that N. Korea has been working on nuclear weapons in violation of several treaties, I see no reason to continue dealing with a country that wants appeasement with a dictatorship at any cost. South Koreans have gone out of their way in recent years to say the US is the only obstacle to reunification.

Let them reunify. At the end of an AK-47, the tip of a warhead or in peace, I don't care.

We need to start thinking about defending our OWN country for a change instead of all these countries that hate our policies. We should start working in earnest on a missile defense shield to protect ourselves from this growing menace.
