Pick up our toys and go home

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

Re­gard­ing the May 11 World ar­ti­cle “On first day in of­fice, South Korean pres­i­dent dis­cusses talk­ing to North”:

The new South Korean pres­i­dent wishes to bring back the “sun­shine pol­icy,” but that never worked.

See­ing that Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in is ush­er­ing in this kin­der, gen­tler ad­min­is­tra­tion and wants to work with the North Korean dic­ta­tor, why on earth should the U.S. mil­i­tary de­fend South Korea?

Let’s pick up our toys and leave that sand­box. Mr. Moon has it all worked out.

Let’s not con­tinue to waste money and mil­i­tary ef­fort play­ing with such an op­ti­mistic pres­i­dent. He and the mil­i­tary of South Korea can han­dle their own is­sues with North Korea.
