Bush'll be invading them yet, and Fox will show continuous coverage of
how terrible the South Koreans are, then loads of yanks on here will be
crying for blood... wait and see... :-)

Isn't $32Million less than one day's turnover for MS anyway?  Seems to
me like South Korea have already be leant on, and have effectively
caved.  I do like to see a humanitarian foreign policy in action, run by
an incorruptible democracy.  I also quite like watching what the US
does... :-)
