Smooth Move : Report: U.S. to Shift 4,000 Troops from S.Korea to Iraq

The United States plans to withdraw an army brigade based in South Korea and deploy the 4,000 troops in Iraq, the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper reported on Monday.
South Korea has delayed the deployment of 3,000 of its troops to Iraq, which was approved three months ago, amid concerns over security and where they will be stationed.
I guess now they'll be stationed on the North/South border in Korea, when their security will be assured.
