Excellent column, with a pointed, logical solution to the problems presented by North Korea. Unfortunately, since the solutions presented are logical, they are unlikely to be pushed by our State Department, or adopted by the current administration, who seem to be blindly “maintaining the status quo.”
The troops stationed in South Korea actually limit the U.S. responses possible in the event of any North Korean adventure. They would be a “trip wire” in the event of an attack on the South from the North, which could get us involved militarily in a place and time where we’d rather not.
It is inconceivable our troops are still there, considering the South Korean attitudes toward the U.S. in recent years. Time to tell the South Koreans they are now “big boys.” Good luck and good hunting!
Removing the umbrella represented by these troops might cause the South Koreans to have to face reality.p>Again, a very good column. br> — R. Goodson br> Vero Beach, Florida /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
