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?"

You know why the French Military still has bases in North Africa? If they leave it’ll spark civil war.

Military bases/posts in foriegn countries are typically in rural areas and bring significant economic boosts to the local communities. Without the influx of cash to the local communities, many will suffer. Germany and Italy are the same way.

So like Kuwait they are paying us to be there? Can we get Kuwait to pay more now?

For wanting to denuclearise N.Korea this doesn’t sound like a good move

How so? All that's happening unless I missed something is they 're just paying a larger portion of the deployment costs. Until there is a peace treaty nothing is decided.

@chris oh I thought it was that S.korea would pay for more US troops it’s just they’d pay a larger portion for what they’ve got my bad

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.
