    North Korea asks South Korea for flood aid

    http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14255537/

    "The North last year demanded a halt to international food aid it had been receiving since the mid-1990s, when natural disasters and mismanagement led to famine that killed an estimated 2 million people. Pyongyang claimed it didn't want to develop a culture of dependency, but nonetheless still accepted aid from China and South Korea."

    Should be positive for Korean relations. How much longer can North Korea continue to spend a third of their GDP on the military?

    they always ask aid from the south. and the south always gives it because they dont want NK to be destabilized and the refugees flood in the south messing up south korea economy.

    not going to change a damn thing b/w the two countries.

    Not to mention if SK doesn't feed NK. NK will use the military that's being spent on instead of food to attack SK...a viciuos circle.

    Why do we still have a DMZ and American Troops in South Korea, when clearly the South Koreans don't want us there??? Lets just pull out and let the South Koreans deal with the mess.

    Cmon man, I serve in Korea, the Koreans in large want us here. There are some citizens that protest us being here, but for the most part our presence here is positive for the people in Korea. We have a excellent partnership with the Korean Army, one of the tightest in the world. Korean soldiers serve in our units and we do joint exercises regularly.
