ABSTRACT
While world attention is focused on North Korea's nuclear shenanigans, another Korean crisis has erupted. One American diplomat describes it as 'the most tense and difficult time' he has experienced in 33 years of dealing with South Korea. South Korean officials complain to reporters that the U.S. President George W. Bush's administration plowed ahead with its North Korea strategies for months without heeding the advice of officials in Seoul, who were suggesting that Washington initiate a dialogue with Pyongyang, a view the United States now seems to have reluctantly accepted. Many South Koreans say that making American troops punishable under South Korean law, and even possibly pulling some troops out of South Korea while maintaining America's military presence in other parts of the Pacific, would be a start. With little fanfare last month at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his South Korean counterpart Lee Jun agreed to review the entire U.S.-South Korean military alliance, a review that might result in a scaling back of America's troop presence in the South.
