I have to wonder whether the presence of more than 25,000 U.S. troops in South Korea, on "maneuvers" or joint military exercises with the South Korean forces, actually decreases (or might it increase?) any desire of the North Koreans to further develop their nuclear weapons capabilities or the risk of terrorist attacks.
I have also read that it costs almost $1 million a year to keep a soldier deployed in a war zone, although that seems awfully high. Could there be a possible budget cut here?
