dcc1f7638da1df2cd475c1f42efcf0be23c86939.doc Dartmouth 2K9 2 South Korea Rearm 1NC Shell 1. U.S military presence means South Korea won’t militarize now. Bruce Bennett 20 10 (Bruce, Senior Policy Analyst – RAND Corporation, “S. Korea’s Military Capability ‘Inadequate’”, Chosun Ilbo, 1-29, http://english.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2010/01/29/2010012900705.html, 7/1/2010) An American academic says South Korea's military capabilities are inadequate to handle a North Korean invasion or other North Korean military action or regime collapse there. In an article entitled "Managing Catastrophic North Korea Risks," Bruce Bennett, a senior policy analyst at the RAND Corporation, said South Korea could face a crisis if it fails to enhance its military capabilities through modernization of equipment and personnel capable of using and maintaining it . He cited South Korea's outdated weapons, inadequate military budget, and reduced conscription period as the rationale for his claim. Many major South Korean weapon systems "are very old , such as M48 tanks and F-5 aircraft originally designed and produced three decades or more ago ," he said. By contrast, " the U.S. military spends some 16 times as much as the [South Korean] military on equipment acquisition each year despite the U.S. forces having only twice as many personnel . U.S. military research and development spending is some 50 times" South Korean spending each year. 2. US withdrawal causes South Korean nuclearization. Patrick J. Buchanan , senior advisor to three Presidents, columnist, political analyst for MSNBC, chairman of The American Cause foundation and an editor of The American Conservative, 20 06 (“An Asian Nuclear Arms Race?,” vdare.com, 10/10/2006, http://vdare.com/buchanan/061010_arms.htm, 7/4/2010) For over a decade, this writer has argued for a withdrawal of all U.S. forces from South Korea —because the Cold War was over, the Soviet Union had broken up and there was no longer any vital U.S. interest on the peninsula. And because South Korea, with twice the population of the North, an economy 40 times as large and access to U.S. weapons generations ahead of North Korea's 1950s arsenal, should defend herself. If we leave now, however, Seoul will take it as a signal that we are abandoning her to face a nuclear-armed North. South Korea will have little choice but to begin a crash program to build her own nuclear arsenal . 3. South Korea nuclearization will spur Asian arms race. Emma Chanlett-Avery , Analyst in Asian Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Defense, and Trade Division AND Sharon Squassoni .
