Kerry Might Reconsider USFK Reductions: Sandy Berger
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sandy Berger, former White House National Security Advisor and key foreign policy and security advisor to Democratic Party presidential candidate John Kerry, hinted Wednesday that should Kerry win the U.S. presidential election in November, it was possible that the decision to reduce U.S. troops in Korea would be reconsidered.
In a keynote address for an international symposium entitled "Regionalism in Northeast Asia: Opportunities and Challenges," hosted by Johns Hopkins University and the Maeil Business Newspaper, Berger said USFK reductions were inappropriate, claiming that pulling 12,000 troops out of Korea at a time when Koreans were openly raising doubts about the Korea-U.S. relationship was sending a bad signal to Koreans. He said he strongly wondered whether John Kerry, if elected, wouldn't reconsider the reduction.
Berger indicated once again the need for direct talks between the U.S. and North Korea to solve the North Korean nuclear issue, stressing that sitting face-to-face with North Korea was not surrender. On the contrary, he said the U.S. could take a strong position.
He said the two biggest challenges in Northeast Asia were North Korea and Taiwan, and the next U.S. president would have to focus on eliminating North Korea's nuclear weapons development project and make clear to China that the use of arms against Taiwan would not be tolerated.

Sandy Burgler should be under house arrest.
Why isn't the sock stuffer in jail yet?
He is not in jail.
A reason is SK send 3000 troops to Iraq , so Kerry hate SK .
That isn't you in the picture, is it?
Sandy Burglar is STILL Kerry's Advisor??? That ALONE shows Kerry doesn't have the sense he was born with.

Who is Sandy Berger?
Why - so they can be nuked by the North?
I thought that Berger was no longer advising the Kerry campaign. We need to scream about this. Also, what happened to the investigation into Sockgate?
He should be in jail or at least on trial. What is this with him speaking on behalf of Kerry. He was let go.
I thought he was GONE. If he had any brains at all, he'd keep his mouth shut and a low profile. If attention swings to him again, what with the increased scrutiny of the media, he might find himself in the crosshairs. He'd make a wonderful scapegoat/distraction for C-BS in their time of woe, don't you think?
Liberals don't go to jail. They get promoted.
Right , just a pic .
Kery has no exit strategy for South Korea!

Excellent: this felon-in-waiting is once again
bestowing the Kerry campaign with reminders of
"the most ethical administration in history".
