Is the US Military really here to help South Korea?

That is the question and there is an obvious answer to this….if you look closely.

In a recent USA Today article, the following was stated:

The U.S. and South Korea agreed Wednesday to work together to strengthen the South’s ability to deter threats from North Korea

That all sounds fine and good right?  I mean, ‘big brother USA’ is here to help.  Let me put this another way.

The Korean war ended in 1953.  That is 60 years ago.  You are telling me that in 60 years, you have not been able to help “strengthen the South’s ability to deter threats from North Korea.”?  So, either the US has the most pathetic military in the world, or they are simply here for the money.  You tell me.

they are also setting up a panel to review the possibility of delaying the transfer of wartime control of South Korean troops from Washington to Seoul. That handover is currently slated for 2015.

Umm….yeah.  60 years doesn’t seem long enough to get things setup does it?

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
