SHOULD US FORCES DEPART SOUTH KOREA?

Popularity 1Viewed 3262 times 2017-4-30 04:17 |System category:News| SHOULD, DEPART

I am a Canadian, an ally of the USA, a liberal supporter of a progressive capitalism, and proud of our "Western traditions". I feel badly about the mistakes the West made in colonialism; but I'm not "overwhelmed by guilt" because other cultures have done just as terrible things. This current Korea problem disturbs me because it could cause the deaths of millions. However, in it, I see an opportunity for "the West" to build a much better relationship with China.

Basically, a look at the map shows me that the Korean Peninsula is the "front porch" of China. It blocks access from the Yellow Sea to the Pacific Ocean. China is already the second "world power". The United States would never tolerate Chinese forces in Mexico. Why should China have to put-up with US forces in Korea?

My proposal is that the US forces guarding the DMZ should be replaced by Chinese forces. It is actually a UN force, and China is now a UN member. I do not think the Kim regime would be so foolish as to attack Chinese forces.

The Koreans need to accept that they are under the influence primarily of China - not the USA. Together, the Koreans and the Chinese can work-out a way to make Korea a happy place in which to live. I don't think they need any "Western outsiders"! What do you think?

Americans have NO NEED for influence over Korea. That is China's territory. China and US need mutual respect.
