  1. #1 Remains of 12 S. Korean Soldiers Return Home from N. Korea 


    The remains of 12 South Korean soldiers killed during the Korean War have returned home after 62 years.

    The homecoming of the remains on Friday is significant since they were excavated in North Korea and are the first South Korean soldiers who died in the Northís region during the war to enter the South.

    The remains were unearthed between 2000 and 2004 when U.S. forces conducted excavation work in North Korea. The remains were transported to the U.S. before their return to South Korea.

    The government and the Defense Ministry held a ceremony at the Seoul Air Base to mark the return of the soldiers, who will be temporarily interned at Seoul National Cemetery.

    The government has so far unearthed the remains of some 66-hundred soldiers who were killed in battle in the Southís region during the Korean War.

    Now why would they do that?

    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Maybe so. Seems like it would be cheaper to send a DNA guy there than ship a bunch of bodies around the globe. Although our gov't isn't known for doing "cheaper".

    I don't think they wanted to appear to cozy with South Korea, it would not have surprised me to have the bodies sent to China first.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
