  • The condoms are used as muzzle covers during the rainy season.

  • GOOD!

    I's refreshing to see that the US government is spending more money on love than hate in this instance. I's probably just a fluke though...

  • it's because there is a high amount of prostitution of south korean women that goes on between south koreans and u.s military personnel. the s. korean government and u.s government made an agreement to promote this "safer" sex in order to keep u.s troop morale high. it has resulted in the marginalization and exploitation of south korean women who are forced into prostitution. the standardization includes regular and invasive STI tests on S. Korean women and condoms are given out to prevent military from receiving STI's.

  • wow lyka, I hope you're not serious? After living in Korea for 11 years, I think i have a right to say something. Korea is INDEED in peace right now, but the war is not over and is merely at cease fire with occasional violent exchanges across the border (although admittedly more so over the seas not necessary on ground). North Korea is just waiting for the U.S. troops to leave. South Korea does have a strong military that can hold it's own, but the U.S. military's significant presence is there more so as a deterrent than anything else.
