Jake, was your South Korea tour cancelled or put on hold? I understood 50 years of our troops being a tripwire protecting the South but in recent years the South shows zero gratitude and too much fondness for their crazy Northern brothers.
I'd love hearing the take on us remaining in country from some average Kim on the street if you get the chance.

piece of cake

Quote:
Four of the five people shot to death in the operation that killed Osama bin Laden, including the al-Qaida leader himself, were unarmed and never fired a shot, U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday — an account that differs markedly from the Obama administration's original claims that the Navy SEALs came under heavy small-arms fire in a prolonged firefight.

According to the officials' account, as the first SEAL team moved into the compound, they took small-arms fire from the guest house in the compound. The SEALs returned fire, killing bin Laden's courier and the courier's wife, who died in the crossfire.
The second SEAL team entered the first floor of the main residence and could see a man standing in the dark with one hand behind his back. Fearing he was hiding a weapon, the SEALs shot and killed the lone man, who turned out to be unarmed.
As the U.S. commandos moved through the house, they found several stashes of weapons and barricades, as if the residents were prepared for a violent and lengthy standoff — which never materialized.
The SEALs then made their way up a staircase, where they ran into one of bin Laden's sons on the way down. The Americans immediately shot and killed the son, who was also unarmed.
Once on the third floor, the commandos threw open the door to bin Laden's bedroom. One of bin Laden's wives rushed toward the NAVY SEAL in the door, who shot her in the leg.
Then, without hesitation, the same commando turned his gun on bin Laden, standing in what appeared to be pajamas, and fire two quick shots, one to the chest and one to the head. Although there were weapons in that bedroom, Bin Laden was also unarmed at the time he was shot.

I'm not going to lose sleep over a mass murder killed in his fortified compound.

my college, Marquette called it's teams the "Warriors" when I was there. It was generic, no one thought we were Indians, Prussians or Spartans, just Warriors.
That became the "Golden Eagles". Gimme a break!

Cancelled for this fiscal year - the official decision came down the pipeline right around the time of the whole government-might-be-put-on-hold thing, so it was doomed from the start.

I've been a few times, and have a degree in Korean Linguistics and culture, so we could have a long chat about that, but that's a different thread...
