    Won’t the Chinese just get their vulgar little puppet in No. Korea to start shelling something in So. Korea?

  • Fiercely nationalistic, yes, but only in modern times. Korea has always had a certian subservience about it. It always prided itself as being the #1 Tributary to Imperial China. And in modern times, its popular culture has always been dominated by Japanese popular culture, whether the pop music styles copied from Japan, manga, and snack foods. Japan led Korea about by the nose.

    It is their inferiority complex to China of old and the modern westernized advanced Japan that is the prime motivator of Korean intransigence.

    To wit their rabid anti-Americanism, freely adopted. Whereas in Iran it is manufactured by a dicatorship.

    Iran is a country with a government that hates America, while its proud Persian people love America.

    South Korea, like Saudi Arabia, have governments that are dependant on America, but filled with people who hate America. Much like Pakistan as well.

    Of course, they hate us, but everyone in Korea wants an American passport, much like the Pakistani elite who endevor to immigrate here, but only for the bolt hole, business opportunities, welfare checks, better weather, and a passport of convinience.

    I can remember my father telling stories about the Koreans fighting in Vietnam. You didn’t want to mess with them. He felt sorry for the Vietnamese when the Koreans were called in to check out a village or area.
