On CBS’ Face the Nation, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that it’s time to start moving U. S. military families out of South Korea.  Graham, who serves on the Senate Armed Services committee, said that in light of North Korea’s aggression, South Korea should be an unaccompanied tour.

Fox News reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he believes it’s time to start moving the families of American military personnel out of South Korea as North Korea pushes the U.S. closer to a military conflict.

Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he will also urge the Pentagon not to send any more dependents to South Korea.

“It’s crazy to send spouses and children to South Korea, given the provocation of North Korea. South Korea should be an unaccompanied tour,” the South Carolina Republican said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” ”So, I want them to stop sending dependents, and I think it’s now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea.”

About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea to deter potential aggression from the North.
