#47  How else can you look at it?

I read a study that claimed that n. koreans have lost a couple in ...

"lost a couple inches of height on average due to malnutrition".


move your boys back to the USA and the n/Koreans will grow in fast motion.
Did you know since World war 2 the average height of 15-year-old boys in Japan has jumped 8 centimeters.
Nothing to do with radiation, honestly.

Well that is the ultimate goal now isn't it?

Can't do it as long as N. Korea remains a threat to the south.

They don't want us to leave and it would be irresponsible to abandon them under threat.

What needs to happen is to have no more miltary threat from the north and the US will move out.

Bull and you know it.

NATO would wipe out the North within days, the USA within hours.
Even a 6 year old one would ask: Daddy, they will kill me, will they not!
How long did it take the Japs to surrender their island nation after the NUKES landed??

Mind you, the DPRK is only a 1/3 of Japans area and they are all starved, while the Japs were in top form.

bull hohohoho

That is why we are there.  If the north decided to attack, we are there to protect the south.

We can't leave them the way it is.

Would China protect S. Korea?  Would they stop an invasion from the north if we left?

Or would their 'non-interference' policy come into play?

So it's a stalemate and will continue until something happens.

Both sides are technically at war.

I have read plenty of articles where N.Korea has stated that they want to unite korea.

And just how are they going to do that when the south would never willingly submit to the north?

Not to mention just how crazy their Kim dynasty has been.  

They outspend the US on military in terms of GDP.

That's pretty damn impressive.

Could it be an arms thing like you suggest?

Where does N. Korea buy arms from?

I am sure there are many articles from S. Korea where they state they would like to reunite  ........

Does that mean the only way is militarily ...........  ?
