BROWNFIELD: South Korea may have planted bone chips in beef shipments.

South Korea officially re-opened to boneless U.S. beef earlier this year.
But both U.S. beef packers who tried to ship product to South Korea had those
shipments rejected after South Korean officials allegedly found bone fragments
in the beef.

U.S. beef officials, in off-the-record comments, have intimated South Korea
may have planted the bone chips as an excuse to keep American beef out of the
South Korean market. And USDA isn't ruling out that accusation. In fact, USDA
Deputy Undersecretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Chuck Lambert said
USDA is asking South Korea to send the bone chips it found back to the United
States for analysis.

If this turns out to be true, the President needs to play hardball on this one. Maybe "find" enough drugs in every single Kia shipped to or through the United States that they can all be siezed via the forfeiture laws (hey, they're used against Americans all the time; we might as well use them for something honorable) and sold at government auction. Continue the practice until South Korea opens it's markets to all U.S. beef. Yank all U.S. aid and troops from South Korea.

In other words, our side should play just as dirty as theirs. By playing dirty against us, they cannot then object to us playing by THEIR standard.

There is no obligation to deal honorably with dishonorable people.
