Two-Thirds of US Citizens Favor Sending Troops to Defend Seoul From N. Korea

Troops to Defend Seoul From N. Korea
Nearly two-thirds of US citizens support the idea of sending US troops to South Korea to protect the country in the event of an attack from North Korea, a fresh survey revealed on Monday.

According to the poll carried out by the Chicago Council Survey on Global Affairs, 62 percent of respondents favor the use of US forces for defending South Korea, marking a 15 percent increase from 2015.

Between 1990 and 2016, public opinion on this matter has been steadily rising, with only a few years experiencing a downturn in support for the idea of stationing US troops in South Korea. However, for the first time in these 27 years, support for the move is represented by a majority of US citizens.

The poll specified that exactly three-quarters of US citizens consider Pyongyang's nuclear program as a critical threat facing their country, which is a 15 percent increase from last year and a 20 percent increase from 2015.
