    I am pretty sure they need us much more than we need them.
    Just saying.

      Some of our more recent Warriors that have been there could correct me if I’m wrong. Had someone with service there a number of years ago that stated we were there to help keep a leash on the ROKs, more than to stop the NKs. How many other UN troops are there, being as that was the FIRST UN War?

      IMO if we are defending other countries dirt then we should be well paid for being there.

        Well, South Korea has the K2 Black Panther MBT, which seems to be better than our M1 Abram.
        Perhaps we could borrow the good parts.

          Exactly. Koreans are technically amazing when looking at something we have and improving on it (I’m a great example , just ask Ms. Dustoff). Seriously, when I was stationed there in the mid 80s the ROKs, were issued the Daewoo K1 assault rife. It looked liked the “love child” of an AK-47 and an M-16 , a great and rugged weapon.
