 Asia Times - News and analysis from Korea; North and South
US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has acknowledged that he will be having similar talks with South Korean Defense Minister Cho Young-kil at an annual Asia-Pacific security meeting, called the Shangri-La Dialogue, scheduled to begin Friday, in Singapore.
South and North Korea are still technically in a state of war, but tangible US investments in the nation's defense allowed South Korea to direct resources into the creation of large, state-financed business empires and fund the development of political, social and economic infrastructures necessary for Korea to develop at an unprecedented pace.
South Korea's strong, visceral reaction to the notion of working with its "ally" in areas beyond the Korean peninsula underscores the divergent beliefs and incompatible visions these two allies hold.

 Asia Times - News and analysis from Korea; North and South
The US deploys about 37,000 active-duty military personnel, and about the same number of civilian contractors, support staff and dependents, all of them covered by an agreement between the US and South Korea known as the the Status of Forces Agreement, or SOFA.
South Korea's new policies of relative assertiveness and distancing itself from the United States are increasingly at odds with Washington's strategies.
Recently announced US base closures and the southward movement of some troops is an important first step, but in an effort to promote national development and encourage the "equal" relationship the South Korean government and people have been loudly demanding, it's time for the US Forces in Korea to go.

 Southern United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The South has also been prominently involved in numerous issues faced by the United States as a whole, including slavery, the American Civil War, and Presidential politics (with the majority of the recent Presidents of the United States having come from the region).
However, the explosion of cotton cultivation [3] made this so-called "peculiar institution" of slavery an integral part of the South's early 19th century economy.
Overall, the Confederates had 95,000 killed in action and 165,000 who died of other causes, for a total of 260,000 total Confederate dead and/or missing[4], out of a total Southern population at the time of around 9 million (of which 3.5 million were slaves).

 North Korea cancels talks over US-South Korea exercise - Mar. 23, 2004
US authorities also maintained low-key publicity on the exercise due to a strong backlash from Pyongyang, which has reacted nervously to any joint US-South Korea drills amid the impasse over its nuclear weapons programs.
US authorities say the exercise is purely defensive and designed to improve the ability of allied forces to defend South Korea against external aggression.
The exercise comes as South Korea and the United States are locked in talks on the relocation of some 37,000 US troops stationed here under a mutual defense pact.

US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld also said the new goal of US military is to deploy soldiers "to a distant theater in 10 days, defeat an enemy within 30 days and be ready to fight again within another 30."
South Korea is one of the most affected country by the plan.

 US, South Korean troops launch massive joint exercises
US and South Korean troops launched massive joint military exercises Monday as part of annual war games designed to deter Stalinist North Korea, officials said.
US authorities also maintained low-key publicity on the exercise due to a strong backlash from North Korea, which has reacted nervously to any US-South Korea joint drills amid the impasse over its nuclear weapons programs.
US troops are seen as deterring North Korea's 1.1 million strong army, and their departure would make Seoul, which is just 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the border with North Korea, more vulnerable to artillery attacks.

The United States, she said, was cooperating with India across a range of economic and security issues and "this cooperation continues even as we embrace Pakistan as a vital ally in the war on terror".
Among these achievements, she said, was Pakistan's decision to join the US camp against terror.

But he said South Korea is closely monitoring the situation and he urged all countries not to take actions that could aggravate the ongoing talks.

 US, South Korea to negotiate troop withdrawal in June - May 29, 2004
Negotiators from the two countries are to meet in Seoul in June for a fresh round of talks on South Korea-US alliance, Oh Jeong-Hee of the defense ministry spokesman's office, said.
The Pentagon confirmed last week it will redeploy around 3,600 US troops from South Korea for up to a year's combat duty in Iraq, the first American troop cut on the Korean peninsula since the early 1990s.
The US troop relocation sparked concern in Seoul that it was the signal for deeper cuts, which would harm South Korea's security at a time of a lingering standoff over North Korea's nuclear weapons.

 South Africa - British Colonialism
Thereafter, the British sought to create a fixed frontier by settling 5,000 British-assisted immigrants on smallholder farms created out of land seized from the Xhosa south of the Great Fish River and by clearing all lands between the Great Fish River and the Keiskama River of all forms of African settlement.
This decision threatened the basis of the Cape's labor supply, for farmers in the eastern areas as well as in the west.
British missionaries, who were active in South Africa for the first time in the 1810s and who had a sympathetic audience in Britain, condemned the cruel labor practices often adopted by Trekboers against their slave and Khoikhoi workers and decried the discriminatory provisions of the Hottentot Code.

For more than a century after the U.S. Civil War ended in 1865, the working day began across the South with the shriek of whistles at textile mills.
It was a compact lifestyle so nearly identical throughout the South that, if you asked mill hands in the rolling hills of northern Georgia or the coastal plain of North Carolina where they lived, they'd probably say, with a mixture of pride and self-effacement, "I live on the mill hill."
Many of these U.S. mills have closed down as these workers' counterparts in China, India, and Mexico are now filling the jobs.
