    although I do agree that the show of force on our side is slightly higher than I would have liked--I don't think we should back down on wargames in the face of N.K. rhetoric, but I think it should plateau.

    We're getting in dangerous territory.

    But the u.s. certainly doesn't want a war on the peninsula.

      The exercise with S. Korea is (or was) called Team Spirit, and I (as a naval carrier aviator and Commanding Officer of a squadron) lived in a tent in S. Korea for a month to prove the point, in 1986.

      There's something about Seoul's vulnerability that focuses the mind.
