IT was a Korean reporter for Ohmynews!
Anyway, I'm going to e-mail them and ask for a copy
of the open letter.
My Korean-American 1.5 generation friend saw the
article and said most Korean teenagers
don't care about stuff like this, they just care
about making money, finding a girl or boy,
going to university, and things like that.
He said I shouldn't worry about this stuff too much
when I'm in Korea.
I think he's right. Anyway, Ohmynews tends to
have what seems to be toned down
North Korean news so I wonder if they're

The same things happened in Germany when I
was there, but usually more with a bent to getting money out of the US forces.
The last REFORGER I was on shows the difference and the German mindset on
accidents involving US troops.
We were waiting for a convoy from the
Combat Support Squadron of the 11th ACR to pass, and US MPs and German
Feldjaegers were blocking off access to the main road in some small town.
While sitting, we heard a horrible yowl and a woman scream. I looked over and
saw a dog with its teeth on a cat's throat and kitty coughing up lives 7, 8
and 9. The woman came out with a broom and chased it off, but the cat was
quite throroughly dead. She held it in her arms and began to cry -- right up
to the part where the ominous clank and roar of an M88 could be heard. The
woman then stopped crying and started thinking. Sure enough, as the M88 hove
into view, she obviously had a plan. The last thing I saw as the '88 went by
was the cat going under one of the tracks...
Odds on bet is that the
incident cited will be used to both (a) embarass the US and (b) squeeze more
money out of USFK in a settlement. The saddest thing is two little girls who
made a mistake died for their error.
