When I was stationed in Korea a couple of years ago, a plan was in place to leave less of a 'footprint' in Korea. Meaning, less visible presence, due to growing anti-US sentiment, which came to head when a US tank killled two little girls on their way to a birthday party. Korea has small roads, and according to the US Army investigation, it may of been the fault of the soldiers headsets, that malfunctioned, and the soldiers couldn't hear the warning that the girls were there. The soldiers were acquited, and tried by the Army, not Korea, which set off riots at Army bases. I was there, I saw it, it was crazy. And Yongsan, a huge Army base sits in the middle of Seoul. Prime real estate that the Koreans have been trying to get a hold of for a long time. They got it, the Army is going down South. I'm just saying that the Army pullout may just be South Korean politics, and have nothing to do with the North. Remember, the South Korean President Roh is in the process of being impeached.
