    Because we're at war with N. Korea. We're not at war with Mexico. No rational person would suggest we go to war with Mexico. A rational person would suggest we work out our differences and become closer allies.

    Its a stupid question based upon ignorance.

    On July 27, 1953 an armistice was agreed to in the Korean war. An armistice is a temporary stop on hostilities. The Koeran war has never ended; there is just a cease fire. The Korean war is still an active war. We are there to defend an ally that we pledged to defend.

    Do you see the answer? We are there because it is an active war that we have pledged to defend a ally.

    The US government doesn't want to secure our border with Mexico, that is why. Just like they won't enforce the current immigration laws.

    our military personnel is there as a trip wire so the nut jobs in n. korea undeerstand American is immediately in the next war should they start one.

    answer

    20 million over the border. mexican government does nothing to stop or prosecute and instead relies on the illegally obtained funds from the illegals it sends back to mexico. now that is an invasion condoned if not supported by the mex gov't.

    Reagan gave illegals living here amnesty. And yet was not able to "work out our differences" -- was Reagan rational or irrational?

    The invasion persists even though the amnesty was meant to end it.

    Bush I -- rational or irrational? was not able to "work out our differences"

    Clinton -- rational or irrational? was not able to "work out our differences"

    Bush II -- rational or irrational? was not able to "work out our differences"

    Obama -- rational or irrational? was not able to "work out our differences"

    AT LEAST 5 presidents have worked on this problem. Are you suggestion we are the irrational ones?

    So do you now support governments restricting the rights of people to leave the country? Would you support this if the US government restricted people from leaving? As a point of reference, when you leave the USA, no-one from the government checks. You go through no passport check to leave other than the airline ticket agent. Do you support having to get CBP approval to leave the USA?

    While I don't have the exact figures, I'm thinking within the last 5 years US border agents and US citizen have been shot at, killed, and kidnapped much more often, along the Mexican border, then US soldiers and S. Korean civilians have along the Korean border. :dunno:

    I take it you don't travel often. Every single time I get on an INTERNATIONAL flight, my passport is checked. Any of my associates that have a visa - the validity and expiration date of their visa is checked also.

    Yes. There is a passport check coming back. This means restrictions on coming into USA.

    There are no checks or restrictions to leaving (unless one if carrying over $10k in cash or equivalency and then legally it must be declared to CBP but that said, I have never been checked how much money I have..I also do not carry $10k in cash)

    Why more troops at the 38th Parallel?

    Let's see...NK invades South Korea and American interests suffer. It's that simple.

    I didn't bother to read the link but is it Sheriff Hollywood Joe again?

    Muscogee, he got you there. It was a "police action". As was the "Vietnam thang".

    Desert Storm was a true war as in it was a declared war. Did we even declare war with all the Afghanistan and Iraq stuff?:dunno:

    There is no military invasion. Therefore, military intervention is unwarranted.
