Obviously the koreans are doing this under the advisement(or pressure) from the Americans.. & it just sickens me whenever the US does this, taking extraordinary measures with no evidence whatsoever...

You mean the same south Korea that gets major help in all areas from the US and protection from that pathetic brat kid up north? Oh okay.

1st of all, south korea doesn't need protection from anyone against anyone...it has a strong 9 million military(Almost double that of the US) and enough money(100 times more than North) to handle itself against anyone... Anyhow what are these areas you speak of??

They're just allias with a common enemy, working together.. Thats something you got to understand is that both SK & US are enemies of the North, the is no one sided advantage in their allians.. Thats very different from needing protection!!

9 milion? It would be impossible to maintain such army over peace, even china has something about 2,5 milion, but i agree that south korea doesnt need Us presence there anymore

Typical American retardism. I suggest you start using your brain and pay closer attention to the world outside of the USA. It might enlighten you.

Huawei and ZTE gear is not compatible with US spying.

Apple and the US are absolutely disgusting and need to be taught a lesson for ruining the good name of companies like Samsung and Huawei. When is someone else besides Huawei and Samsung going to stand up for this Yankee injustice?

South Korea's not dumb though, just saying. It's one of the leaders in technology and it won't provoke its main import & export partner for no reason.However, with the NSA sneaking around and stuff, I'll sit on the fence in this matter.

US being a main import/export partner is not really an issue as China has surpassed US as the main import/export partner many years ago. S. Korea's import/export volume with China more than doubles that with the US. It's more of a political issue, not an economic one.

Yea, I was talking about China. And even though it is a political issue, we all know money plays a role.

Again, US only allow the world being spyed by US government, they do not allow US government spyed by others. what is going on in this world?
I don't feel safe in the society like this.

US government force other countries to buy equipment shipped from US that can spy their country, and force other countries not to buy those equipment has possibility to spy on others. Then only US government can and must spy others, all others not allowed to spy on US.
