    When is she going to figure out that she can't save her run for the White House? Somebody please give this woman a hint and tell her it's over.

    I'd buy her a clue but why waste good money?

    I predict it's over right now. Not only will she not get the nomination, but she will not be re-elected in her district now that she has showcased what a train wreck she is.

    Bachman is just proving herself to be a nutter as usual.
    Meh Who takes Bachmann Seriously anyway?

    The woman is a walking disaster zone. Politically speaking of course.

    The conservatives on this board are conspicuously silent. Either they agree or they're embarrassed by a Tea Party darling.

    I'm rarely against US foreign policy, but I'm a very passionate and strong opponent of SOFA, especially in South Korea.
    There was a huge, controversial incident in 2002 where two young middle school schoolgirls were walking down a road, but got killed by a US armored vehicle. Just got flattened.
    It was not much for the incident itself, but how the soldiers got away with it. SOFA provided that they didn't get responsibility, no punishment or reprimand, and got away free. There wasn't even an apology.

    This, of course, isn't the only incident. There were murders, rape, etc... by US soldiers, but they all got away with it thanks to SOFA. If there's one US foreign policy I hate, it's SOFA. No wonder countries "helped" by the US is so angry

    You are wrong on several key points. Firstly the ROK gov't has fully legal rights under SOFA to exercise jurisprudence, the right to claim authority in a trial, of any incident involving US military personnel not occurring during a military exercise. The two Soldiers who drove that armored vehicle were acquitted in a UCMJ court, but it occurred during a military exercise. I understand this your point and this is your issue.

    However in all other cases the US always yields to ROK jurisprudence if they wish to exercise it, for example the recent rape of that young woman from Dongducheon the Soldier who committed that crime was given a 10 year sentence in Korean prison.

    Additionally the US did apologize in both cases several several times and by high ranking individuals.
