South Korea, (you know, the guys we currently defend, died for in the Korean War, and helped build into a first-world economic power) so far has refused to participate in UN sanctions against North Korea. Even the Chinese are nominally participating in the sanctions. The former PM of South Korea says that the NK nuke detonation is Americas fault. Now Pyongyang has threatened Seoul with severing ties, if SK participates in the UN sanctions. What do you think of SKs attitude? Should we defend people who apparently cannot decide to defend themselves? Should we defend a SK that is willing to trade with the criminal regime in Pyongyang, the gang that killed by terror and starvation more than a million North Koreans? Should we defend a SK that is undermining the UN sanctions? Should we pull our troops out of SK and admit defeat by the Chinese in the 50 year Beijing-Washington struggle for political and economic power in NE Asia? If we leave SK, will that tell the Japanese that America is unreliable? Will the Japanese then develop nuclear weapons? What should America do? Ignore the simpering South Koreans?
