Gen. Burwell B. Bell quote
Army Gen. Burwell B. Bell, commander, U.S. Forces Korea and Combined Forces Command, February 2008.

I'm not going to tell you I don't need American ground forces, but on balance, the outcome of a future Korean War, should one transpire, the ground war would be borne on the backs of Korean ground forces, and they would do very well. It's an interdependent fight, leveraging American air and sea power and Korean ground power all put together in a warfighting mechanism that has been honed over 55 years.
