Since the war in June 1950, our investment in Korea in terms of men has lasted SIXTY SEVEN YEARS
I have seen many demonstrations there against the US. PSY took his huge hit, Gangnam Style and later turned it into an Anti American soapbox.
We currently have about 40,000 men and women there acting as a speed bump for the North Koreans ensuring an overwhelming American response when they invade.
South Korea had a free and fair vote and they chose the govt and their choice over THAAD.
Fine, it’s their nation.
But those are our men and women.
If the South Koreans won’t allow us to defend them ALONG WITH DEFENDING OUR MEN AND WOMEN from missile attack by either North Korea or China, AND our allies, such as Japan (who is now rushing to emplace their own theater and point ballistic missile defense) then it’s certainly time to have the debate about bringing our people home, our planes home and our task forces to Japan, Okinawa, OR TAIWAN and as Dean Acheson did, inform the world, Korea is not in our zone of protection.
Maybe we should stay, but we SHOULD HAVE the debate.
