KJI is crazy.

We keep enough troops stationed along the DMZ not as a force that can repell his million strong army but enough that if captued will require the US to act. They are in essence hostages.

Besides, if we park a carrier task group off his shore for a bit he'll quiet down quickly.

Lastly, my brother transferas to Kadena in a couple months and one of our first cousins is currently living in Soeul. So from a selfish and personal pov I hope to hell that idiot can be silenced.
