“Internet centrist” on Sparkling Korea

Lee Myung-bak (李明博,이명박) warns Japan ….

Japanese nationalism. Huh? Wait, what?

According to Japanese newspapers such as Tokyo Shinbun, Jiji Sinbun, and Yomiuri Shinbun, this guy said yesterday that

拉致された人は韓国にも多くいるが、日本ほど大きな問題として北朝鮮に迫っていない。

There are many South Korean abducted by North, but we don’t make a fuss about it (so keep your mouth shut too).

日本のナショナリズムがあまりにも強いと近隣国家で心配しているのは事実。

Neighboring countries are worried about Japanese extreme (strong) nationalism.

Nikkei and Asahi don’t mention the nationalism part because Asahi is the leftist and Nikkei is an economic newspaper.

A Korean politician never stops amusing Japanese people.🙂 Roh Moo-hyun, the president of South Korea himself said the same thing before.

What “neighboring countries” is he talking about? Korea and China. That’s it. China is a communist, human rights violating, censorship ass country and North Korean is a freaking militaristic (Military first), fascistic, totalitarian, human rights violating messed up country. Wake up! Lee Myung-bak.

I will tell you what South Korea’s unhealthy and extreme nationalism is. I know whole lot of Koreans are nuts and crazy about Dokdo and East Sea/Chosun/Peace Sea, racial superiority, Japanese textbooks, Comfort Women, Baekdu Mountain, Goguryeo, etc, etc.

Besides that, seriously, why not worry about lives of South Korean if he knows many South Korean nationals have been abducted by North? This is serious issue. But “South Korea cannot even use the word “abductee” due to fears of angering the North Koreans.” I strongly believe that an country’s primary obligation is to protect the safety and welfare of its citizens.

It’s the late Chosun era all over again….
