Graham: Pentagon should move US dependents out of South Korea

Source: The Hill




BY BRETT SAMUELS - 12/03/17 01:06 PM EST

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that dependents of U.S. military personnel in South Korea should be relocated in the wake of a recent North Korean missile test.

"South Korea should be an unaccompanied tour. It's crazy to send spouses and children to South Korea, given the provocation of North Korea. So I want them to stop sending dependents. And I think it's now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea," Graham said on "Face the Nation."

North Korea carried out its latest missile test last week. It was the reclusive country’s third intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, but the first for what North Korea is calling its Hwasong-15 missile. The missile flew nearly 2,800 miles high and for a distance of more than 600 miles, according to experts, who added that it can travel a distance of more than 8,000 miles — far enough to strike anywhere in United States.

"We're getting close to a military conflict because North Korea's marching toward marrying up the technology of an I.C.B.M. with a nuclear weapon on top that cannot only get to America but deliver the weapon. We're running out of time," Graham said Sunday.

3. Oh fuck, here it comes. Lindsay want to get his war on!

If we see the dependents actually start coming home then hang on, because that's a sure sign shit is going to happen.

North Korea's artillery will pulverize Seoul in a matter of hours. They have some REALLY BAD stuff besides explosives loaded in those shells too.

9. I think we should make Lindsey ambassador to South Korea and make him live in Seoul.

Maybe then we might get some diplomatic input for this crisis.

10. This nation is tired of warmongering leaders who think they are to be admired for being "strong." It

takes guts and years of hard work to make something and one stupid person one minute to destroy (fill in the blank.) Dump has been doing nothing but provoking N. Korea ever since he got into office.

15. Move Congressional republicans, along with their orange-skinned mutant organism, to S. Korea.

Include the mutant's entire cabinet, as well as aides, advisers, and supporters.

Remove the military and their families.

Seems like a fair trade to me.

Graham and McCain can lead the charge. McConnell and Ryan can carry the colors.

It's not as if any of them will be missed.

18. Why not?

Let's show our South Koreans allies that the US saves its own civilians, but won't have a problem bombing South Korean citizens, should the North Koreans come over the border!!!
