You left out the part about how much of US manufacturing they have taken over, in the past 30 yrs.
remove yourself from the gene pool, idiot
You also left out how many US troops are stationed their and what the cost of that and the aid to that country adds up to
The cost is burden shared, with South Korea picking up a good portion of basing US troops. So it's not a huge drain on just the US. What's important is our regional presence in NE Asia. Not to mention North Korea being just across the border and the possible havoc they could bring if the US just left.
off yourself dolt
Drew, Rick; It's pretty clear that the post was just meant to list off some stats about South Korea. It wasn't intended to be a political statement nor an exhaustive list or every issue between the US and S Korea.
That being said. Yes, I'd have to agree with both your points regardless.
