Evidently, the agreements described below will require that US troops pull out of Seoul by April 17, 2012. Our friends in Korea are extremely concerned about this deadline and the possibility, if not the liklihood of a new Korean War. I received a phone last weekend from a friend in Seoul who is in near-panic mode. He was only a young boy when the DPRK invaded in 1950, but he remembers well the face of communism.
It appears that the former ROK President (the one who committed suicide) entered into an agreement with then Secretary Rumsfeld, whereby we have begun to pull out. My Korean friends think their forces today are well-trained, but simply not large enough to withstand a massive invasion from the north. They also fear that invasion will soon follow our withdrawal. What were we thinking? Must we do this again?
Here are some resources:

News media - you have to wade through lots of petty local political bickering to ferret out the important facts

Why isn't the news media all over this NOW, instead of after the catastrophe?

That fact had slipped my alleged mind!

But if the flying saucers are misdirected to another galaxy, then keep you eye on Korea, it will be nasty. If I'm not wearing Depends by then, I'll be considering hiring on to call in NGF.

Yeah I hear you, Im itching to get back in myself, I ain't getting any younger, and this process is dragging out. Who knows what Lil' Kim will do, he ain't getting younger either, he might want to go out with a bang before Nibiru comes...

Taking forever as in getting back in? or taking forever because we just realized 2012 is the date the world ends because of Lil Kim? If its about getting back in, I Don't know but you can call my PSR up and ask him...PLEASE!!! .LOL
