Before South Koreans complain about how compliance with the US request for troops will impact the economy, it might be advisable for them to look in the mirror. Korean labor routinely shoots itself in the foot, and labor activists go to stupid extremes to make their point. Recent example: when stabbing yourself in the chest at Cancun simply isn't enough, you can always imitate the Vietnamese Buddhist monks who set themselves ablaze in protest of injustice.
