The US and South Korea have reached a deal to hand control of South Korea's military back to Seoul by 2012.I was aware that the Korean War had never officially ended and that it has just been a really long cease-fire. I did not realize that the US still had control of the S. Korean Army. So if it took us from 1953 until 2012 to finally get out of Korea, just how long can we expect to be in Iraq? It doesn't look too promising, does it?
The agreement ends a 50-year pact that gave the US wartime command of South Korea's army, dating to the Korean War.
