Time to Withdraw from South Korea

Anti-American Protests in Seoul

There is a great deal of talk about an “America First” foreign policy. At the same time, there is a looming fear in the United States of Asian economic dynamism and rising Asian military and diplomatic power. To kill two birds with one stone, it is a good idea to make South Korea the first place to apply an “America First” foreign policy. This can be done by withdrawal.

America has alliances stretching across the globe. Some of the allies are clearly not bad. It is difficult to see how our alliances with the UK or Germany harm the American People at this time. Some of the alliances obviously do no good to anybody. For example, the neocon inspired American support for the “moderate” Syrian rebels is high octane lunacy. One can watch the terrorists of the Free Syrian Army torture their captives to death on the internet. Should some “Faith-Based” charity group working with the US State Department bring a member of the Free Syrian Army to America as a “refugee,” the natural savage behaviors of these “moderate allies” will lead to the same atrocities here.

Another nation whose alliance does no good for the American people is South Korea. Year after year America’s support for South Korea requires cohorts of Americans to pull duty to protect the South Koreans from their Northern, Stalinist kinsmen. Three generations of this author’s family have pulled military duty there — the first generation (a great-uncle) served in the Korean War (1950–1953).

The American military’s effort in South Korea consumes a large portion of America’s military resources. There is a constant requirement for thirty thousand Americans to be sent on tours which last as long as a year in Korea — even when there are serious wartime commitments elsewhere. In addition to direct support for South Korea, another thirty thousand troops are positioned in Okinawa and Japan as a strategic reserve should conflict in South Korea break out. A tour in South Korea is considered a hardship tour, and a soldier who serves there is given a campaign medal. Since the armistice which ended major combat operations during the Korean War, 130 American troops have been killed in combat operations in Korea.[1] The non-combat deaths, from accidents, disease, etc. exceed 1,000. In other words, these deployments are a considerable effort.

This effort is made more difficult to get out of because the political class that directs American foreign policy is highly influenced by foreign pressure groups including lobbyists from South Korea and Japan.

According to [Asia In Washington by Dr. Kent Calder], in 2011 the two largest lobbying nations in Washington by number of registered lobbyists were Japan and Korea, each pursuing an extensive agenda ranging from cultural promotion to trade deals. In this respect, the efforts of these Asian governments have been largely successful, as evidenced by Japan’s recent partnership with Democratic senator-turned-lobbyist Tom Daschle and the PR firm DCI to promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership.[2]

With that in mind, it isn’t much of a stretch to surmise that both Japan and South Korea have a plan in place to ensure that the United States would continue to support them should a Pearl Harbor-like event occur that could seriously change America’s defense priorities. This hypothesis makes President George W. Bush’s inclusion of North Korea in the post 9/11 “Axis of Evil” speech a bit more understandable. The South Korean political elite in particular must view America’s withdrawal from South Vietnam with alarm.

The South Korean government wishes to keep American support because northeast Asia is a pretty bad neighborhood. It isn’t just North Korea that is the issue. The Korean Peninsula itself is a buffer zone between Japan, Russia, China’s Middle Kingdom, and Manchuria. When the Japanese started to build their Empire, Korea was their first important conquest. From there, the Japanese attacked the Russian Far East, made Manchuria into a Japanese Colony, and then attacked China. With American involvement in Korea all of the aforementioned nations are secure on their Korean flank. Without the Americans, the entire situation becomes unstable. In such a case, nations which are producing goods for export and self-enrichment must re-prioritize their economic policy to support military aims.

Dark Green represents the Japanese home islands and the early parts of the Japanese Empire. Korea effectively fell under the control of the Japanese in 1905. This picture also shows how Korea fits in as a buffer between the Middle Kingdom, Manchuria, Russia, and Japan.

A Changing National Narrative in Korea

While the South Korean political elite wish to keep the Americans around as a military back-up, the South Korean people themselves are becoming deeply anti-American. A national narrative has grown up since the Korean War that puts American involvement on the peninsula as just another example of Korean victimization by Great Powers. It wasn’t always this way. During the lead up to the Korean War and shortly afterwards, there were anti-American activists in Korea, but they were usually Communists or bandits.

On the whole, Korea had no anti-American or anti-Western attitudes until the early 1980s. Anti-Americanism started to become a factor possibly due to the US reaction to the assassination of President Park in 1979. Respectable, politically active Korean students led the anti-American actions. In 1986, the Christian Scientist Monitor reported that,

. . . 73 students staged a peaceful, four-day sit-in at the US cultural center in downtown Seoul which attracted widespread attention in the international news media. Since then, attacks on US facilities have been smaller but more violent. Last August, students jumped the fence around the US Embassy in Seoul and burned a US flag before security guards caught them. In early December, other students carrying Molotov cocktails seized the US cultural center in the city of Kwangju and held it for nine hours before police moved in. The attacks have also hit US businessmen. Students occupied the American Chamber of Commerce offices in Seoul last November, spreading kerosene on the floor and threatening to light it. US banks have become targets of protests.[3]

During the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, anti-American activities on the part of Koreans were undeniably noticeable. The hostility showed up, in of all places, in Olympic boxing. The South Koreans were ramped up to win at all costs. First, the Olympic referees and judges of all nationalities were under actual physical threat from the hometown crowd throughout the event. South Korean coaches, trainers, and event security guards physically attacked judges and referees throughout the matches.[4] Canadian coach Taylor Gordon stated, “They’ve intimidated the officials into where they don’t call anything at all against the Koreans.”[5] The American team was especially cheated. American Boxer Anthony Hembrick and his coach were likely deliberately misinformed as to the details of his match against Ha Jong-Ho and forfeited for being a “no-show.” During the heavyweight final, Roy Jones Jr. dominated South Korean Park Si-Hun in the ring, but lost due to the fact that three judges were likely bribed (and intimidated) by the South Koreans.[6]

While there are some who don’t feel that African-Americans (such as the Kenyan mercenaries in the Long-Distance Event given quickie US Citizenship papers) don’t truly represent American whites in Olympic sports. In the case of the 1988 Olympic Boxing that idea doesn’t apply. From the Korean perspective, regular American Negros are easily representative of Americans in general. Most Koreans see Americans through the lens of the US Army. Through such a prism, the Koreans have never seen a time when Negroes weren’t integrated with whites.[7] What they see is senior black NCOs and officers giving orders to white soldiers that are efficiently carried out. Additionally, Hembrick was an Active Duty soldier in 1988.

Following the 1988 Seoul Olympics, nasty protests against the American soldiers doing hazardous duty on the DMZ escalated. In 2002, after a fatal traffic accident involving an Engineer Vehicle called an AVLB, Koreans rioted for months. Americans invited to lecture at Korean Universities were threatened by mobs, and a Public Affairs officer was knifed in Seoul.[8] Just as the facts of a police shooting don’t matter to Black Lives Matter’s terroristic protests, the accidental nature of the 2002 AVLB accident didn’t matter to the South Koreans. Korean movies now highlight American “atrocities” such as the “No Gun Ri incident.” This is an event where soldiers in 7th US Cavalry shot some refugees during the confused, early days of the Korean War.[9] The incident has become increasingly exaggerated as the Korean War sinks into the past.[10]

If the US State Department had a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Americanism rather than wasting resources on the existing similar position to combat “Anti-Semitism” they might be more aware of Metapolitical changes in Korea regarding Americans. 작은 연못 A Little Pond (2009) is a movie that fictionalizes and exaggerates incidents where civilians were killed by Americans during the early days of the Korean War. Essentially, other than some of the American characters are a bit more fleshed out it is not much different than Hollywood’s “Dirty Jap” propaganda movies of the 1940s. Many of the top actors in Korea volunteered to make this movie.

Great Changes in the Center are Expressed by People in Margins of their Society

In 2015, US Ambassador to South Korea, Iraq War veteran Mark W. Lippert was slashed in the face by Korean nationalist Kim Ki-jong.[11] Kim was wearing traditional Korean clothing during the attack. The attacker’s choice of clothing is significant. Professor Ben Kiernan argues in his study of genocide[12] that one of the markers of severe ethnic and racial conflict is a “cult of antiquity.” As racial and ethnic conflicts intensify, those of the forefront of the conflict tend to wear traditional clothes, discuss how ancient history can be applied to the present, and express great interest in their people’s golden past in the misty days of yore.[13] This the traditional clothes worn by the attacker does show just how sharp the anti-Americanism in Korea has become at the margins. There were some brief pro-American feelings following the attack on the US Ambassador, but they quickly faded.[14]

A cult of antiquity: Kim Ki-jong, wearing traditional Korean clothing. Kim’s choice of clothing is highly nationalist and symbolic.

The Pollution of the Han flows into the Potomac

One of the reasons for the catastrophic Immigration Act of 1965 was America’s military involvement in South Korea and other Asian locations. One cannot justify the costs of defending a people if one doesn’t feel them worthy of entering one’s own nation. Today, South Koreans have entered the US in droves and have large communities in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, among other places.

Koreans and many other Asians have the appearance of high intelligence and they don’t become involved in Negro-style street crime.[15] However, their success deserves a second look. The “stereotype” of the Asian “model minority” is probably more related to disappointment felt by American whites in the behavior of blacks following the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than a careful study of actual Oriental folkways. The first time “Yellow Peril” idea started to be dropped and replaced by the “model minority” stereotype is in 1966, when William Pettersen wrote about Japanese-“American” successes in the New York Times.[16] Following the 1992 Rodney King Riots, American whites felt a further affinity for Asians in that both were attacked together by blacks.

However, the actual “success” should be given a second look. South Korea is only different from North Korea due to the presence of thousands of well-armed, highly trained and disciplined American troops forcing the adoption Western standards on a non-Western population. Additionally, Seoul is filled with battalions of American advisors, businessmen, and diplomats. This influence is what makes South Korea’s prosperity possible. Korean culture on its own is North Korea. Indeed, North Korea is more like Korea prior to Japanese rule than otherwise — the land of Juche is merely a reversion to the pre-1905 Hermit Kingdom.[17]

Like all Oriental people, Koreans are more concerned with saving face and harmony than actual substantive results. This is why a gold medal gained by cheating in boxing in the ’88 Olympics was more important to the South Koreans than an honestly gained silver medal. To emphasize appearance over substance, Asian societies produce people that are good at taking tests, but not so good at cutting through the professional fog in real life. Part of the reason for excellence in taking tests is a widespread culture of cheating. Cheating scandals are so common that one must wonder exactly why Universities bother to accept Asian students.[18] In the United States, cheating by Asians, including South Koreans is very common. One blogger writes,

The stereotype, delicately put: first and second generation Chinese, Korean, and Indian Americans, as well as nationals from these countries, often fail to embody the sterling academic credentials they include with their applications, and do not live up to the expectations these universities have for top tier students.

Less delicately put: They cheat. And when they don’t cheat, they game tests in a way utterly incomprehensible to the Western mind, leading to test scores with absolutely zero link to underlying ability. Or both. Or maybe it’s all cheating, and we just don’t know it. Either way, the resumes are functional fraud.[19]

This fraud comes out in funny ways. Discovered in the fallout of the Obamacare website rollout scandal was Asian incompetence. Writes another blogger:

But just who has been behind the crash-and-burn of Obamacare? None but Henry Chao, Deputy Chief Information Officer and Deputy Director of the Office of Information Services at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Todd Park, Chief Technology Officer of the United States, and Aneesh ‘Depak’ Chopra, former CTO.

It reads like a who’s-who of Asian ‘America.’[20]

The scandal also revealed large swathes of stolen code in the Obamacare website, setting up the US Government for all sorts of lawsuits. Indeed, much of Asian technological progress hinges upon copying (or stealing) the technological advances made in the United States and Europe.

Up until Omar Mateen, an Islamist from the savage Pathan tribe, shot up the Pulse Nightclub in 2016, the worst spree shooting was done by Korean Immigrant Cho Seung-Hui in the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting.

The hatred in the center expresses itself in the margins.

If American Leaves South Korea

Should the United States leave South Korea, the Korean Peoples themselves will need to determine if they wish to continue to be divided or not. If not, the Koreans must then determine how to re-unify. This unification could take the form of a bloody war of conquest, but the blood shed will not be American. Additionally, Americans can send Koreans with American citizenship who lobby for American involvement in such a war back to Korea as volunteers to fight. Why does an Arkansas farm boy fight for Korea when there are plenty of Koreans working money laundering jobs on the West Coast that deserve a chance for glory? Since the US Department of Defense now allows women in combat billets, Korean women with American citizenship can also be pressed into the cause.

As alluded to above, an American withdrawal from South Korea increases the chance of war in Korea a bit and immediately ups the tension between the nations of northeast Asia. For example, the Koreans have an irrational, lingering hatred of the Japanese, and removal of a steady hand in Korea opens up the frictions in this papered-over rivalry. Should the conflict spread across northeast Asia, the “Americans” with Chinese, Japanese, etc. nationality living in the United States can also be volunteered to fight for their race.

Keeping out of war, rather than rashly joining in, is a great way for a nation to ascend to power or hold on to power. Keeping out of World War I for so long made America what it is today. Prior to that, the United States, while independent, was still a partial vassal of Great Britain. American presidents, usually Democrats, from Jefferson to candidate William Jennings Bryan complained that money earned (with interest) by the sweat upon the brow of the Yankee yeoman pioneer left America for the counting houses of Lombard Street in London. But this changed due to war. When the British got involved in the 1914–1918 war due to Western Europe’s buffer state of Belgium being invaded, King George V had to go to Woodrow Wilson hat in hand for aid.

Therefore, a good way to get out of the debt and trade imbalance with Asia is to simply stop subsidizing Asian defense budgets — while Asian governments subsidize destructive competition with American industries. It is time to take our own side.

    The American garrisoning of the world is about the petrodollar, not “alliances” or policing the world to maintain order. Maintenance of the system requires threat of force. All these countries use dollars to buy oil. They all buy and hold US treasuries that will never pay out and they run large trade surpluses with America, effectively sending free stuff to America just so they can get freshly printed dollars with which to buy oil.

    The petrodollar system is arguably breaking down now and will at some point fail in a currency crisis. This new Asian Infrastructure Bank is a huge development. The American empire will rapidly wither away when people start buying oil with gold and other currencies.

      I doubt the dollar is going to fail. We’ve been waiting a long time for the Austrian Economic Apocalypse. The world is not dumb enough to fall for the “hard currency” boondoggle. Do you wonder why the gold bugs are willing to take “soon-to-be-worthless” ZOG bucks in exchange for precious metals, when their whole theory is premised on such transactions being irrational? The answer is: sound money advocates are cons and their customers are rubes.

        The global reserve currency system has been reformulated every 50 to 80 years for a long time. I don’t know why you find it far fetched that we’re due for another such development. The petrodollar standard was established in the late 60s. Gold buggery and references to “Austrians” are not really relevant. Headlines pertaining to Special Drawing Rights and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation show every other week that the system is starting to seriously fray. The Brits are even hedging their bets.

        The American empire is very fundamentally about military power and the dollar. The deal is you do global trade with the dollar, offering a massive subsidy to the American elite by way of seigniorage, and you get protection. This is our relationship with the Saudis. It’s also why the US runs a trade deficit with every country: it’s the Triffin Paradox. Very obvious and well understood phenomenon.

        This is related to how empires have always worked. You mint the coins, pay your soldiers and military contractors with them, and demand tax payments from subject peoples in the form of the coins. Except now instead of paying tribute, client states are forced to send things to America in order to get the dollars in order to get the oil they need.

          Your comments are sensible.

          America is no longer an ascendant power. And when you are a hegemon and not ascendant, your decline is guaranteed. There are never weak hegemons in history, for long.

          American decline will gather momentum as its demographic profile changes with WASP/Whites going down in numbers and influence. It is as simple as that and Dr Johnson (whose writings I read and admire) didn’t have to go all ”Austrian Economics” (btw, an ironic name for Jew-economics) on you.

          When American institutions – political, admin, economic, security – increasingly fall into the hands of Jews, Browns, Blacks, Chinese, Muslims, Mestizos etc. they will become increasingly crippled and anarchic. The hegemon will become dysfunctional and so will its currency.

          What I have said above is not original at all. Any serious reader of Gibbon will understand it. Western Roman empire in its dying days even had North African emperors!! Can you imagine. North African semite, the arch enemy of Rome, sitting on Roman throne. That’s how degraded Rome had become – a thoroughly multi-racial, multi-cultural, identity-less shadow hegemon. It was waiting to be kicked to death.

            That’s hyperbole. According to the literature, in those times North Africa was relatively “white”, compare e.g. Augustine of Hippo. Even today the Berbers can be surprisingly europid, with light skin and eye color.

    Takes me down memory lane. I served at Camp Casey, 2nd Infantry Division in the early 80s. Koreans may be our allies but they definitely see themselves superior to Americans.
    The US Army KATUSA program integrated Korean soldiers into the American units, to help us deal with the foreign culture and language. Korean civilians however saw KATUSAs as draft dodgers as KATUSAs needed political connections who could pull strings to get in. Duty conditions in the ROK Army were quite harsh. ROK Army food sucked and the pay was abysmal. The KATUSAs all ate in the Army mess halls instead of the KATUSA snack bars on post which served Korean food.
    When the Korean rapper Psy was enjoying his Gangnam Style hit a woman at work remarked how Anti-American he was. She did not understand that Psy and most Korean men hate Americans for the competition we bring for women.
    Korean-American orphans are definitely third class citizens in Korea, and many female orphans end up as prostitutes for the American servicemen.
    We may have needed to defend the Korean Peninsula back then, but that time is past.

      ” I served at Camp Casey, 2nd Infantry Division in the early 80s.”

      I was at Camp Casey from 1982-1983, we may have crossed paths. I was in the armor unit on the hill, Charlie Company if I remember right. There were turtle ditches all over the place, and the little town outside the main gate was called Tong Du Schong, (city of shit). On the back side of one of the local hills was a long stairway if I remember right, “99 steps” I believe it was called.Field duty there was the coldest duty I pulled anywhere. The country stunk, it hit your nostrils as soon as you got off the plane, and you d aren’t drink the water because the Koreans like the Chinese used human feces for fertilizer for thousands of years. In fact, it was not wise to get their free flowing water on you at all.

        Just a little bit later, but that was “1st Tank” , the barracks were in Dragon Valley. The long stairway led from the 1/72 Battalion area to the motor pool on the other side of the hill. The smell is hard to shake, especially the grubs roasting on the food cart stand just off post.

      Personally, I started to gradually feel that Germany was, in fact, an occupied nation since WW II, when I began to closely observe the political decisions that nation made since that time. I concluded that no really free nation, that was looking out for its best interests, could possibly have taken the many crazy and damaging positions it has taken.

    The American military presence in Japan and Germany is more costly. There are about 50,000 and 38,000 US troops in Japan and Germany, respectively, compared to about 28,000 in South Korea. The bases in Germany were major staging grounds for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and will be in any potential future interventions in or conflicts with Syria, Iran, or Russia.

    I agree with the author, in a European ethnostate we would withdraw troops back to the homeland. The Asians should go their own way and figure out their own conflicts. The ethnostate would benefit most by becoming as Autarkic as possible, manufacturing and consuming our own products. Our national security would benefit most by staying out of other nations’ affairs, and keeping our technological advancements to ourselves. Anti-American sentiment in Vietnam mostly vanished when we left, and anti-American feeling in the Phillipines was helped when we left them to their own devices. The natural state of affairs is Chinese hegemony in Eastern Asia. If we removed ourselves from their economies, they would have far fewer resources to work with, if we removed Asians from our industries, we would have far less theft of our technology. The best of all worlds would for us to be out, with their military 2 generations behind ours, our wealth and productivity out of their economies, with minimum reason for conflict.

    In addition, the author’s comments about East Asians also rings true. Their lack of inventiveness, in technology, political science, art, music and every field of endeavor is obvious. Their gene pool does not produce European-type geniuses who create and move humankind forward. The Europeans who landed in the 1700s were amazed by the complete lack of progress in every field of endeavor as they compared that China to Marco Polos writings. Had Europeans never encountered Asia, it would still be almost exactly as it was in the 1700s.

    Asians are separated from Europeans by 30K years, they have very different brain equipment. They cheat in tests because it is advantageous to do so, and they do not have inborn guilt to prevent them from doing so. They optimize their situations by cheating when available, it is logically the most beneficial choice. An Asian reading that “you shouldn’t cheat” because it is “unfair” or “immoral” to do so even though it greatly helps you would probably find that to be a silly and nonsensical statement.

    Korea actually is the best friend in Asia the West has had.

    At the end of the 16th century, Korea used an early type of ironclad ship to defeat a Japanese invasion, making Asia continue its stagnation and isolation to make it an open game for the West.

    Without this defeat by Korea, Japan would probably have conquered China and would have been a big obstacle of Western domination of Asia. Japan likely would have expanded farther and would have claimed some of the West Coast for itself. Japanese envoys were already in Mexico and they were aware of the American West Coast.

    Korea serves, sort of like Belgium in Europe, as a source of trouble to divide Asia.

    Unfortunately, withdrawing from SK gives NK a green light to attempt Anschluss with China’s support, giving the latter even more clout with regard to the South China Sea shipping lane. That’s about five-trillion$ in commodities, including several times more oil than passes through Suez or Panama each, much of that going to Japan, which doesn’t have the coziest relationship with China. In other words, a huge gamble for Japan, which it will not be willing to take even if we guaranteed to make up for its dramatic oil shortfall — which we physically can’t even begin to do with Gulf extraction petering out, nevermind shipping all of it if we had it to spare.

    That isn’t speculation: you can find articles on any major site about China rattling that saber and what it would mean for the global economy.

    This is why absolute national sovereignty for all is pure fiction: like the races, some nations enjoy greater sovereignty than others, which forces them to rely on others for things. No such thing as equality — or parity.

    Politics isn’t a game of “Risk”. You can’t just realign things based on your preferences.

    Please don’t call the current status of German subservience an “alliance” – trips me up to no end when talking to Yanks, even right-wingers. More than 40K occupation troops and deep tentacles on all levels of the German state, business and media apparatus sure as hell don’t like collaboration between equals to me. No, let’s call it what is – vasellage.

    Arguably to say the least, this article pin points the main pivot of America’s commitments in South Korea and Asia albeit its limited resources presently. Lets not forget that America was the mid wife who helped give birth to 3 deformed children post 1945. West Germany was one, (In Europe), since unified, but morphed into a castrated lap dog. Israel is the other L’Enfant terrible in the Middle East which requires constant expensive maintenance, after it throws one of its fits and leaves a trail of destruction in the neighborhood. South Korea is the third deformed child. This baby sitting has to come to an abrupt end soon as the signs of an economic imbalance and deficient wealth and resources are becoming more visible than ever since Donald Trump has coned the “America First” slogan.

    I don’t agree that Koreans are somehow simulating high IQ. They may seem excessively imitative at times, but one cannot fake so many South Korean hard scientists and mathematicians publishing in reputable journals. Even the North Koreans have managed to kickstart a nuclear program — a highly non -trivial technical undertaking.

    Koreans are hardworking, determined and very proud of their nation’s culture and history. Though they can be matierialistic, the advanced moral decay of the West holds no appeal even for the young. And that, more than anything else, is a source of anti-Americanism.

    North Korea continues to exist because it is useful to China to prop it up. A negotiated withdrawal of all superpower involvement could see the Kim dynasty ‘retired’ and the peninsula reunited. Traditionally Korea has looked to China to keep Japan in check: that pattern is likely to reassert itself as the US wanes or collapses in chaos.

      I get sick of Westerners who look up to the Orient for its “family values”. Look, the fertility rate in Korea is a little over one, they have one of the highest abortion and suicide rates in the world, and their popular culture is degenerate, So, there’s plenty of moral decay in South Korea, thank you very much.

      They may be about 10-15 years “behind” the West in terms of degeneracy, but that is just because they got started later . I see no real countervailing force at work.

    According to David Dionisi in Atomic Bomb Secrets Japan had its own Manhattan Project in Korea where uranium was more plentiful than in Japan. The transfer of key portions of Japan’s atomic bomb program to the Soviet Union was accomplished first by dividing Korea along the 38th parallel and in 1953 with the military demarcation line. Dionisi then goes on to give another three reasons for Korea; to eradicate Christianity which was centered in Pyongyang, to help create a Cold War, to keep war spending high and then he speculates that a divided Korea could be used as a catalyst for a third world war but in Asia.

    “The American military’s effort in South Korea consumes a large portion of America’s military resources.”

    I want America’s resources to be consumed; I want the system to fail. If we withdraw support from any country it should be Israel–Jews are orientals too. By all means, let the (((system))) overextend, and self destruct. If America did withdraw support from South Korea, the extra resources would just wind-up being used on Israeli survival. It’s not like the extra resources would go to our brothers in Europe to stem the Islamic invasion. I am so corn-fused as to where you are going with this!
