Seoul okays 3000 troops to be dispatched to Iraq
Advertisements [?]
South Korea confirmed yesterday that it will send thousands of troops to Iraq to help U.S. forces there.

Washington and Seoul, however, differed on the size of South Korea's troop deployment, with Seoul offering to send 3,000 soldiers while Washington requested more, said Lee Soo-hyuk, a senior Foreign Ministry official.

The two sides will continue their discussions when U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld visits Seoul in mid-November, said Lee, who led a government delegation to Washington last week to work out details of the deployment.

"After Turkey canceled its plan to dispatch troops, the U.S. earnestly wants other countries to send troops," Lee told Seoul media. "The U.S. expects much from South Korea, which is a staunch ally."

Every citizen in Asia hate Bush and Bush's Butchering. This decision was made by a few Korean men for profit and NOT for morals.
