In what seems to be a stunning development South Korea has told American officials that it will send 3,000 troops to support ongoing actions in keeping the peace in Iraq. South Korea would then become the 3rd largest contributor of forces in Iraq after American and British troops.

The soldiers would be sent to the northern town of Kirkuk and may include special operations forces and combat-ready marines.

The government will submit a bill to parliament on Wednesday for a vote. South Korea's major political parties have said they approve the deployment of troops.

South Korea has 460 military medics and engineers already operating in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah.

This development isn't surprising, they just want more support from the US. But enven 3k more troops wont stop the killing it will just multiply the targets. Face it the US has to get out of Iraq soon for their sake.
