Whoops, sorry if I was overly defensive there. But actually I did kinda sense you were joking around a bit, but I couldn't tell which parts! My bad - it's been a busy week. The logic there was indeed silly.

I was joking. I thought you, as a philosopher, would appreciate (i.e. find funny) that bizarre leap in logic......man, academics in mid-semester are a tense bunch aren't they?
Hope all is well with you man.

First of all, I have no idea how I got lumped in with the neocons. Unless "neocon"="not a pacifist." In fact, I _don't_ admire this reasoning. The robust military presence in Korea might be justified in terms of _preventing_ N. Korea from becoming a nuclear power, but that's moot. Given that N. Korea has always been a client-state of the nuclear-equipped communist Chinese, it's hard to imagine _any_ policy that would have been effective. OTOH, I suppose it would be better if the North could take over South Korea, then we wouldn't need _any_ troops there.
