It could be argued that the S. Korean gov't doesn't dedicate enough resources, but I found the S. Korean army to be a truly dedicated group, commited to defending their country from a threat on their doorstep. In the past, we've sidelined them because we want to maintain the little brother you never pass the ball to. They are stepping up a lot recently now that we are giving them the chance.

After his YouTube video went mega-viral, the South Korean rapper named PSY received an invitation to sing and dance at a White House Christmas party. But it was quickly learned that in 2004, he had rapped lyrics wishing for the death and torture of American troops in Iraq, along with their families. PSY quickly issued a humble apology to the American people, and the White House reaffirmed that PSY’s show would go on. Was this the right thing to do?

In case you haven’t heard of PSY, his Korean rap video “Gangnam Style” has been viewed more than 900...
