The United States could fight an old-fashioned war against North Korea if necessary, even while newer forms of conflict against terrorists and extremists continue, the Army's top officer said Thursday.
Asked whether the United States would be prepared to fight if war broke out between South Korea and North Korea, Gen. George Casey replied, "The short answer is yes," then added that "it would probably take us a little bit longer to shift gears" away from the type of counterinsurgency fighting that now occupies the Army.

our founding fathers have no clue about the current world........they also intentionally omitted income taxes from the national blueprint.....what happened to that?
the US protects south korea not because it has to, but because it chooses to.........south korea is a friend.........south korea is a trading partner
the US does not have to protect anyone..........but it chooses to do so
you should move to a place where they have a future
Actually, I would say the world was 10 times more turbulent when America was founded, and we broke away from England than now... The Founding fathers saw exactly how entangling alliances worked in Europe and saw the burden that was placed on it's people.
I rather respect the document that gave us America, and set her up as a beckon of freedom, liberty and justice forall, let those who care to dismiss it find another country that has no rights to be respected, and no governing document to hold up against its leaders and say enough is enough...
Have fun in China.
On a further note, not one damn thing is different from today than 0 AD... Only the speed at which things happens, and the means they happen. We still have war, famine, poverty, and all the things that existed back then, disease, corruption, charities, etc... The world hasn't changed, humans neither... only simply the technology that enables us to do the same things we did 4000 years ago.
Once you get past that, you'll see the wisdom in the statement "Those Who Do Not Learn From History Are DOOMED To Repeat It"

No we don't... No law, or article in the Constitution says we must use American resources to fight and protect another country on the other side of the world.
How about the treaties that the US signed with South Korea that are allowed in the US Constitution(article 2, section 2)...US has to abide by them, defending South Korea in case of attack by the North.
Same goes with our treaties with Japan who would be attacked also
