Lets see, if the US pulls out of South Korea, North Korea will invade the south; then the US will have to go back to South Korea to help them fight. So in the end the US should just stay in South Korea

US presence is needed in the Pacific. North Korea isn't any kind-hearted country. Just think of that... it starves its own people..

Pull out!!!! We do not have any reason to be in Korea. If the North Koreans wanted to attack south Korea they would do it and it doesn't matter if we are there are not. North Korea could obliverate the American forces that are in South Korea in a matter of minutes with all of the arty the have pointed at our post in South Korea.

The primary reason we're there is because if the North wants to invade, they will be directly attacking US troops. That means that no matter how successful that invasion is, the US (with its very potent military) is automatically committed the moment the invasion happens. That is currently the #1 deterent to the North invading.

IMO, we have ever bit of business being there until we are asked to leave. Why hand over a very prosperous South Korea to a North Korean rule that would completely ruin everything they've accomplished anyway?

Sadly the only formula for a positive reunification of the two Koreas is for the Communist regime of the North to somehow lose power, the two halves merge, the US and company pull out completely, and China would have to make some unbreakable agreement to never invade. Pretty unlikely.

All that would have to happen is the Korean people would have to pressure their government into formally requesting the removal of US troops. I don't know if the Korean people at large are completely confident of their ability to go it alone. That's why that hasn't happened yet.

They certainly ARE of the opinion that we are provoking the North, but that's another matter completely.
