re: On the other hand, Moon may see through this ploy and redouble his demand for a peaceful solution for the obvious reason that the first and foremost casualty of war would be the entire population of South Korea.
In 2015, bilateral trade went to US$227 billion.
China’s share of South Korea’s total exports exceeds one fourth, twice as high as the share of the United States.

This new base is the largest construction project in the US Department of Defense’s history.
The bill of 13bn USD military base is shared by the US and S/ Korean governments.
The local people living in Seoul, some 10 billion (sorry- should read 10 million) of them will need to stay there while the 3 flattops keep begging to do something ...
