    South Korea - I wish we would get the hell out.  Miserable place.  I was there from 2000 to 2001 and it was estimated out total cost for being there was $40 Billion a year.  $40 Billion so I could spend a year away from my family in a place where people hated me, protested me, attacked me and killed 4 of my comrades (just my year).  Most ungrateful people on the planet.
