"America may have some problems, but it's our home. Our team. And if you don't wanna root for your team...then you should get the hell out of the stadium. Go America." --Stan Marsh, South Park

Never thought I'd see the day...but apparently our boys are headed south on the Korean Peninsula (source: AP Wires through Yahoo! News)

My thoughts:

Given the current emphasis on mobility with our military, I guess moving our guys out of Communist artillery range will still allow 'em to stop the red hordes if they cross the parallel...but the DMZ is one big tank trap, and Korean terrain can get damn rugged at times (not to mention bitch-cold in winter).

However, this nonsense attributed to Rumsfeld about possibly bringing all our guys home from there is just NUTS. Cripes, we just went on record saying that along with Seoul, we won't tolerate a nuclear-armed Pyongyang. Now we're gonna back off from our positions since 1950?

And ya gotta love the line about how younger South Koreans see the US 8th Army HQ in downtown Seoul as a "slight to national pride." Hel-LO...without us, that nation you're so proud of would be one big Red peninsula!

Good related links on the left sidebar of the above article, too...including how North Korea funds its WMD programs with missile sales, drug money like the Taliban, and cash funneled from the Japanese Mafia. (source: Japan Times)

Kim Jong Il, you ain't helping me sleep at nights, Clyde.



Star wipe, and...we're out.

This makes me think something is going to happen real soon, and they finally have sense in Washington to take our 37,000 away from getting run over by the 1 million North Koreans in the first wave.



I consider the switch from Pathetic to Loser to be a promotion.

speaking as someone who spent a couple tours over there back in tenser times (75 until 78, then 81-83), I can say that the Z troops aren't going to be overwhelmed by the NKs as easy as you think. The US Army trains for just that possibility. We alerted on that at least a couple times a year for practice and it happened 3 times for real while I was there. I spent one tour at Casey in Tong Du Chon and the other in Camp Stanley in Oui Jom Bu.

In the relatively famous tree incident of August, 1976, we were alerted at Casey within 30 minutes of the incident and had loaded out less than one hour after that. The Corbras and Hueys hit the air a damn sight quicker than that and the Armor Battalion went out the back gate (That's where I was that day) 18 minutes after we alerted. We didn't stand down from that for three days. That next spring (Spring 76) we lost a chopper into NK and again, we alerted, but almost immediately stood down.

And guys and girls, that was the pot smokin', drinkin', racist, post-vietnam army. I figure it is MUCH better now.




We'll be back as soon as order is restored.....

HUA! A salute to you, AWArulz, for wearin' the mean greens. Especially over there at a tough station like Korea. Sure trumps my li'l ol' 6-year gig in the Wisconsin Army National Guard.

Commo leads the way! (Yeah, that never got a positive response back then, either.) :-)

Naturally, I'll try, but I'm the first to admit I am a terrible hypocrite. I don't buy tuna that doesn't have a doplhin safe label on it. I won't buy Domino's pizza because of it's loudmouth owner.
