What a way (not to) run your military
From Yonhap News
SEOUL, Aug. 31 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will provide free physical checkups for all its conscripts starting in 2008 as part of efforts to improve their welfare, government and ruling party officials said Thursday.Somehow the South Korean government forgot an item on the military checklist. The health of individual soldiers should be important for many reasons. For its important to military readiness. It shouldn't be looked upon as doing these men and women a favor as ROK Drop says.
In their plan, the military and the private sector will establish a cooperative medical system, and a military medical center will be built to help research and education.
If this is the attitude in Seoul, one has to wonder about the ROK's ability to resist an attack from the DPRK.
