Off subject a little. On my 1st assignment to Korea in 1960-61, the ROK Army trucks all had a white picture on the doors showing 2 hands shaking. I just assumed that they were provided by the UN, or some country, and the hand shake was a symbol of cooperation. Does anyone know the details, and maybe have a picture of one with it?
As an observer or for crowd control?
As for the crowd, how so?
I was there as an observer.
The sort of language they were using... and the way the crowd reacted to the baseless accusations. Lemmings I tell you, lemmings. I guess it's only a democracy if they're in power. If anyone else is, it's got to be a dictatorship.
I've never understood random verbal abuse against riot police. Haven't these guys ever been in the military before? They show up because they are ordered to. They can't go home even if they wanted to. Non thinkers. Also obviously there was a female voice on the speaker teling them to go to their homes... should have heard the sort of language the fag on the loudspeaker was using. Stuff like "닥쳐라 썅년아!!!" Oh, how civilized. Went on and on with some BS charismatic speech that the public swallowed like candy.
If you don't like Lee Myung-bak, just vote for another party when his term is up. This isn't democracy, this is mob rule. I actually calmed down a few folks hurling verbal abuse at the riot cops. I just told them "come on, they're not here because they want to be." Most people understood and just went back into the crowd. But this one old guy was a total dip sh*t. Guy was normal, wasn't crazy, just plain dumb. I guess he got angry because he realized he was wrong. Told me to get lost. I said no. Then he and some other old people got angry at me saying (don't know how to say this in English with the same sort of effect) "어런 한태 대드냐?? 이놈 봐라!" BS... started calling his friends over the phone so I just disappeared into the crowd when he had his back turned to me. The idea of having a terrorist mob of old f*cks following me home wasn't appealing and if they did that I'd actually have to cripple a few as a warning because I don't live alone.
Democracy is fragile in Korea, not because of Lee Myung-bak, but because of the leftist mob.
One photo of many photos and videos I took:
Taken at city hall.
I'm not even going to talk about what happened today.
