South Korea, US sign new cost-sharing deal for US troops

Officials signed a short-term agreement on Sunday to boost South Korea’s contribution toward the upkeep of US troops on the peninsula. About 28,500 US troops are stationed in South Korea, where the US has maintained a military presence since the Korean War. A previous deal lapsed after US President Trump called for the South to pay more.

Americans are all like, "US military bases in Korea and other places are imperialistic remnants that need to go away" and meanwhile, South Korea is like, "You want some more money to keep that base here?"

Would save more money by just letting everyone get on with it. A direct ally and japan with bases next door... could pull out of there and half of Europe save billions and still be just as secure.
