Gravitas: South Korea wants to join the QUAD

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEIefTmcwoY

South Korea's President-Elect Yoon Suk-Yeol wants his country to join the QUAD. What will South Korea's addition mean for the alliance?

Why not indeed help to counter Chinas growing influence by joining the Pacific answer to NATO. They would also be able to work with the Japanese as a side-effect.

Even though I have advocated teaching there for some short cash once covid is over.  This is still a good idea to contain long term.  But it seems Russia and China will place themselves outside the world order anyways or are going that way. 

As Trump once said about the US (and the west): "We hold all the cards".

America made a big mistake by focusing on Russia instead of China.

Russia was no threat to the US.

putin has been working his shaking fingers to the bone trying to draw the US's attention. Now that he's got it, he should be happy.
