[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Help U.S. with troopsThe difference between the United States and Korea over Seoul’s sending troops to Iraq became evident with yesterday’s remark by Donald Rumsfeld, the U.S. defense minister.
With risks in Iraq growing, the Korean government is avoiding sending combat soldiers there. But many young U.S. soldiers shed their blood for Korea. It is not right to neglect the difficulties of the United States. If the lives of our soldiers are precious, then so are the lives of U.S. soldiers. If Korea does not send combat troops to Iraq, it should not expect U.S. help in the future.
