Protesters hold a mock funeral for U.S. President

Events in Kwangju unfolded after the dictator of South Korea Park Chung-Hee was assassinated by his own chief of intelligence. In the euphoria after Park's demise, students led a huge movement for democracy, but General Chun Doo-hwan seized power and threatened violence if the protests continued. All over Korea, with the sole exception of Kwangju, people stayed indoors. With the approval of the United States, the new military government then released from the frontlines of the DMZ some of the most seasoned paratroopers to teach Kwangju a lesson (see Gwangju Massacre). Once these troops reached Kwangju, they terrorized the population in unimaginable ways. Soldiers beat students, killing many. Bodies were piled into trucks, where soldiers continued to beat and kick them. By night the paratroopers had set up camp at several universities.

As students fought back, soldiers used bayonets on them and arrested dozens more people, many of whom were stripped naked, raped and further brutalized. One soldier brandished his bayonet at captured students and screamed at them, "This is the bayonet I used to cut forty Viet Cong women's breasts [in Vietnam]!" Despite severe beatings and hundreds of arrests, students continually regrouped and tenaciously fought back. As the city mobilized the next day, people from all walks of life dwarfed the number of students among the protesters. [The May 18 Kwangju Democratic Uprising, p. 127] This spontaneous generation of a peoples' movement transcended traditional divisions between town and gown, one of the first indications of the generalization of the revolt.

People fought back with stones, bats, knives, pipes, iron bars and hammers against 18,000 riot police and over 3,000 paratroopers. Although many people were killed, the city refused to be quieted. On May 20, a newspaper called the Militants' Bulletin was published for the first time, providing accurate news — unlike the official (propaganda) media. At 5:50pm, a crowd of 5,000 surged over a police barricade. When the paratroopers drove them back, they re-assembled and sat-in on a road. They then selected representatives to try and further split the police from the army. In the evening, the march swelled to over 200,000 people in a city with a population then of 700,000. The massive crowd unified workers, farmers, students and people from all walks of life.

South Korea's former president accuses U.S.

neoconservatives of abusing North Korea

"How North Korea will do with its missiles and nuclear weapons... Those will be just children's toys in front of the U.S.," Kim was quoted as saying in the interview.

Kim said America's military industry has enjoyed windfall gains by selling their weapons to Japan and others throughout North Korea's nuclear standoff.

Hanbando

Last night I went out with a friend and my new Busan Oppa (see separate post on him) to see the movie Hanbando
I’ll admit, my budding language skills prevented me from understanding all of it but it doesn’t take a genius to recognize certain elements.

In fact, the movie’s opening tells you right away this is going to be a nationalistic one: Images of Dokto protests,
footage of the Twin Towers impaled by airplanes, feed used from previous White House statements regarding terrorism,
images of George Bush addressing the press, pro-Korean images, pro-reunification propaganda…you name it, it’s all
there in the opening segment as they introduce the cast.

Uri Bigwig Asks U.S. to Atone for Korean Division in FTA

The chairman of a National Assembly oversight committee on Monday night stirred up
a demure Korea-U.S. party in Seoul by linking tariffs on goods from an inter-Korean
joint venture to America’s role in dividing the two Koreas.

Kim Won-wung, who is a Uri Party lawmaker, said the demand to include goods from
the Kaesong Industrial Complex north of the border in a free trade pact with Washington
“has something to do with the U.S. paying the historic debt it owes over the division.”

“If the two Koreas hadn’t been divided, the Korean War would not have occurred,
which in turn would have eliminated the need to create the Kaesong Industrial Complex
in the first place,” Kim told startled guests at the party marking the second round of
bilateral FTA negotiations at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul on Monday evening.

Kim expressed hope to see U.S. companies operate in the Kaesong complex “and
Americans buy affordable quality products produced in the North Korean complex.”
That, he said, would help the U.S. “to repay its historic debt it owes for dividing the
two Koreas and help South Koreans see genuine will in the U.S. to establish peace
on the Korean Peninsula.”

Kim told reporters by phone on Tuesday his remarks were intended to stress that the
Kaesong Industrial Complex “plays an important role in unifying the two Koreas, and
the U.S., one of the powers that divided the two, needs to offer assistance to the
North Korean complex.” After liberation from Japanese rule in 1945, Korea was divided
by the Allies roughly along the current border, with the South put under U.S. administration.

Korea protesters clash with police over US base

Most of Thursday's protesters were not residents of Pyeongtaek, however, but members of a nationwide umbrella organization called

The group binds together more than 100 South Korean civic groups united mainly by anti-U.S. sentiment.

South Korean woman arrested for arson at US base

Police arrested a South Korean women on suspicion of burning down several buildings at a U.S. Army base in Seoul on Thursday because she was angry at what she saw as "U.S. terrorism".

Three South Korean civilian employees were injured in the fire that started at a public works building at the base that serves as the headquarters for U.S. troops in South Korea.
The fire spread to four other buildings, police said.

Seoul and Washington closer to divorce

Mar 7, 2006
It is believed US officials no longer trust their South Korean counterparts on North Korea policy.
Fueling that speculation has been the recent friction between Seoul and Washington over how to deal with US allegations North Korea is counterfeiting US dollars.
While Washington has stepped up financial pressure on Pyongyang in an effort to defend the US currency, Seoul appears to have opposed such a move.

U.S.-South Korea Relationship Has Soured

As America focuses on nuclear-armed North Korea, emerging powerhouse China and other Asian nations, its ties with Seoul languish.
By Tyler Marshall and Mark Mazzetti, Times Staff Writers

WASHINGTON ― As the Bush administration strengthens ties in Asia as part of a hedging strategy to contain fast-rising China, it has allowed a key relationship in the region to fray: its half-century-old alliance with South Korea.

Strong ties with Seoul have never been more pressing, regional experts say, and the administration plans to launch a diplomatic initiative to breathe new life into a relationship that, much like an unhappy marriage, has soured over the years as the partners drift apart.

"There's no question, if the alliance isn't managed properly, it could easily fall apart," said Peter Beck, the Seoul-based director of the International Crisis Group, a privately financed conflict-prevention organization, who also serves as an advisor to South Korea's Ministry of Unification.

The region includes emerging powerhouse China; unpredictable, nuclear-armed North Korea; and nations with unresolved historical enmities that add to the area's volatility. But as the White House devotes its energies to expanding its alliance with Japan, building new bridges to India and even nurturing a budding relationship with Vietnam, ties with Seoul have languished.

Against this backdrop, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is scheduled to meet Thursday in Washington with a South Korean delegation for the inaugural session of a dialogue officially called a "strategic consultation." The meeting has no fixed agenda and has been billed as a chance to explore the broader relationship and priorities of both countries.

Remarks by President Bush and President Roh

of The Republic of Korea Hotel Hyundai Gyeongju, Republic of Korea
PRESIDENT ROH:
And I do believe that during President Lincoln's term in office, people
were always talking about the slavery and President Lincoln was always
attacked about not doing anything for slavery, to release the slaves.
And I do understand that President Lincoln was quite slow in liberating the slaves in the United States.
And this was because the President, if he took the lead in this issue,
he thought that America would be divided in opinion, and this would be very serious.
In reality, the Civil War did take place, and because of this issue of slaves,
there was a situation where the United States was in jeopardy, and because of that,
he had to go through a process to ensure that the country would stay together.
President Lincoln's first priority was unity among the states of America,
and in this large framework of unity, he pursued his policy to free the slaves in the United States.
As a result, before the end of the Civil War in the United States,
I do understand that President Lincoln was able to free all the slaves in America,
and they were actually -- and many people went into the army,
many of the slaves, former slaves went into the army and fought for President Lincoln.
And this evaluation of President Lincoln's policies was carried out
actually 11 years after President Lincoln's death by a scholar who was looking
into the situation of the slaves in the United States.
I think that this is quite similar to the position that we are taking when it comes to North Korean human rights issues.

Hillary Clinton Bemoans "Historical Amnesia" in Korea

A newly hawkish U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday chastised South Korea for what she claimed was a fog of “historical amnesia" clouding its relationship with Washington.
She said the alliance was at a "critical juncture.”
Sen. Clinton, tipped as a main Democrat contender in the 2008 presidential election, was speaking at a confirmation hearing
for Gen. Burwell Bell, the commander-designate of the U.S. Forces Korea.
Clinton said the U.S. role in bringing about South Korea’s remarkable economic success since the Korean War was significant,
but lack of recognition of that view in Korea bordered on "historical amnesia."

She said changes in the dynamic between the two countries were largely due to South Koreans’
lack of “understanding of the importance of our position there and what we have done over so many decades
to provide them the freedom that they have enjoyed to develop the economy that is now providing so many benefits for South Koreans," the senator said.

‘Historical Amnesia’ Hurts Korea-US Alliance: Clinton
By Reuben Staines

Anti-American sentiment has grown among South Koreans in recent years in parallel with a thawing of relations with communist North Korea.
Some activists have recently called for the removal of a prominent statue of U.S. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who in past decades was viewed by South Koreans
as a hero for turning the tide in the 1950-53 Korean War.

According to newspaper polls, many South Koreans now view the U.S. as a greater threat to the nation’s security than the communist North.

US to Speed Up Talks on South Korea's Military,

Rumsfeld Says
New York Times, United States
During his news conference, Mr. Rumsfeld was pressed for a response to recent public opinion polls that indicate a sense among some South Koreans that
the United States is a greater threat to peace on the peninsula than North Korea.

Mr. Rumsfeld took an uncharacteristically long pause,
and then reminded his audience of the vibrancy of South Korea's democracy, economy and lifestyle -- and said they had been purchased, to a great extent, by American sacrifice of blood and money.

"The United States of America has invested the lives of a great many Americans in helping the Republic of Korea to be free," he said.
"We are a part of this alliance at the request of the Republic of Korea's government."
http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/21/international/asia/21cnd-rumsfeld.html

Korean Ambassador to the United States Han Seung-joo for his failure to attend an event hosted by the U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, sept 2004
apparently giving preference to another meeting involving personal relations.
Han did not go to the meeting held at Rumsfeld's residence in Washington, Sept.10, local time,
where high-ranking U.S. officials, including Secretary of State Colin Powell and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, were also present,
instead attending a party celebrating the publication of a book by his wife, a professor at the Academy of Korean Studies.
The dinner hosted by Rumsfeld was not for expressing gratitude to the countries that had sent troops to Iraq as initially reported by local media,
but was to commemorate the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Yonhap news agency reported,
quoting a U.S. Defense Ministry spokesman.
It is likely that the meeting was meant to be both, as the guests were ambassadors from 25 countries such as Australia and Mongolia that had dispatched troops to Iraq.

U.S. Won’t Sell Global Hawk Spy Drones to Korea

The United States has turned down a bid from South Korea to buy cutting-edge high-altitude“Global Hawk” unmanned aerial vehicles from the country.
The unmanned spy plane is considered a key strategic weapon and is under strict export restrictions, meaning that congressional approval is needed before the UAV can be sold to abroad. In June, the U.S. approved the sale to Japan.

During a parliamentary audit of the Agency for Defense Development on Thursday, Grand National Party lawmaker Hwang Jin-ha said Washington told Seoul during a joint Security Cooperation Committee meeting on June 21 the sale was “inappropriate at this time."

Ahn Dong-man, the president of the ADD, confirmed the news. "I am aware that the U.S. has refused to sell us Global Hawks," he said.

Korea Society Opinion

A foreign policy expert says while it is disturbing that a majority of South Koreans hold the U.S. responsible for the division on the Korean peninsula,
he does not think it would be wise to pull American troops out of that country right now.
Recently, a Korea Society Opinion Institute poll found that 53 percent of South Koreans hold the U.S. most responsible for the division,
and more than 35 percent believe the U.S. is most opposed to reunification of the Korean Peninsula

Bush Bears Blame for Mishandling of Katrina, Say Koreans

News Digest, Aruna Lee,
NCM, Sep 14, 2005
Media coverage in Korea of Hurricane Katrina has focused on the inability of the United States to deal with natural disasters of this magnitude, leading many to doubt the leadership role of the U.S. Despite massive resources and seemingly limitless wealth, the U.S. could not come to the aid of its people, and is just as vulnerable to natural disasters as poorer nations, say many Koreans.

Blaming Kwangju massacre on the U.S.

Last week, the Association put up a big display in the newly remodeled shopping area across from Central Station.
The occasion was the 60th anniversary of independence from Japanese colonial rule, but they were looking back a little farther, all the way back to 1905, in fact, when Japan formally annexed Korea.
Each signboard in the display had a little logo commemorating the 100-year anniversary: 40 years under the Japanese, 60 years under the Americans.

A different board explained how the Americans divided the peninsula in 1945 along the 38th Parallel,
thus leading to the terrible state of division that persists today. There were other boards detailing various massacres perpetrated by American soldiers, like in Nogunri. Yet another board, whose story is now obligatory in these anti-America history lessons, told the story of American complicity in the Kwangju massacre.

South Korean Anti-Americanism

by Meredith Woo-Cumings
In a December 2002 survey of national attitudes, conducted in forty-two countries by the Pew Research Center, a stunning 44 percent of South Koreans were found to hold unfavorable views of the United States. This level of disaffection topped France’s 34 percent, Germany’s 35 percent, and in fact, any country in Europe or East Asia. In the non-Muslim world, only Argentina, whose economy was in ruins for two years (arguably done in by the neoliberal nostrums pushed by Washington) was shown to harbor more unhappy sentiments vis-à-vis the United States. A Korean Gallup Poll, conducted around the same time as the Pew Research Center survey, confirmed as much and more, reporting that some 53.7 percent of South Koreans held “unfavorable” and “somewhat unfavorable” view of the United States. Most of these malcontents happened to be young, and included upwards of 80 percent of the college students polled.

Clashes Feared Over MacArthur Statue in Incheon

Fears of a violent clash mounted Friday after progressive civic groups wanting a statue of U.S.
General Douglas MacArthur in Incheon pulled down and conservative groups determined to protect
it to the very end announced simultaneous Sunday demonstrations in the city’s Freedom Park.
http://english.chosun.com/w21data/html/news/200507/200507150022.html

Give Dougie Mac the Saddam treatment!
Civic groups in Incheon have complained that local police are wasting manpower in guarding a statue of General Douglas MacArthur, who successfully led the amphibious counter-attack by U.S.-led UN troops here during the Korean War.

Since 2002, Incheon police have been guarding the statue in the city’s Freedom Park for fear of vandalism. Anti-U.S. demonstrations took place in the the park in 2002 and 2003, according to the police.

Three officers have been detailed to guard the statue around the clock. No actual damage has been reported.

Civic groups in Incheon want the statue to be moved to another location so police will not waste time and energy on the mission.
Conservatives in Incheon disagreed. “Incheon should feel proud having the statue here,” said Han Il-tae, 75.

S. Korean police injured, fence destroyed in Humphreys protest

Three protesters arrested in melee; no servicemembers hurt

By Franklin Fisher, Stars and Stripes
Pacific edition, Wednesday, July 13, 2005
PYONGTAEK, South Korea ― Five South Korean police officers remained hospitalized Monday after fierce clashes outside Camp Humphreys on Sunday with protesters opposed to the planned expansion of the base, police said.

Work crews on Monday reinstalled long sections of Camp Humphreys perimeter fence torn down by protesters who yanked on nylon ropes, rushed through the breach, and tied yellow steamers to an interior fence, then exited the base. Protesters also threw steel pipes and rocks at police, and as many as 60 officers were reported injured.

At one point, the violence grew so intense Korean National Police officers positioned inside the fence decided to cut it open so they could dash through and pull several injured officers to safety, said Harry M. Parent, Camp Humphreys’ director of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security.

“There is no gate in close proximity, so that is their best course of action,” Parent said.

Camp Humphreys is a U.S. Army helicopter base in Pyongtaek that is slated to triple in size by 2008 under an agreement between the United States and South Korea.

S. Korea fears regional military conflicts

By Jong-Heon Lee
UPI Correspondent
Seoul, South Korea, Mar. 8 (UPI) -- With mounting regional tensions caused by a China-
Japan rivalry, South Korea President Roh Moo-hyun said on Tuesday he would not allow
U.S. troops stationed in the country to get involved in East Asian disputes that can hurt
stability on the peninsula.
"I clearly state that the U.S. Forces Korea should not be involved in disputes in
Northeast Asia without our consent," Roh said in a speech at an Air Force Academy
commencement ceremony.

Roh visits U.S. 2005

Relations between the two nations will be worse than at any time since Americans and South Koreans fought,

WASHINGTON, June 10
President Bush and President Roh Moo Hyun of South Korea tried today to
minimize their obvious differences over how to deal with North Korea,
declaring that keeping the Korean Peninsula nuclear-free is what is important.
But Mr. Roh (pronounced Noh) has opposed a move toward sanctions that would
cut off trade with North Korea, arguing instead for more engagement with
the North.
Nothing emerged at the question-answer session today to indicate any
lessening of the differences between Washington and Seoul on that point.

Mr. Bush and Mr. Roh exchanged gestures of friendship as they sought to play down their differences.

The South Korean prodded Mr. Bush at one point.
"How do you feel, Mr. President," Mr. Roh said. "Wouldn't you agree that the alliance is strong and - ?"

America loves one of them more

Jun 9th 2005 | SEOUL AND TOKYO
From The Economist print edition
JUNICHIRO KOIZUMI gets to throw a baseball around and take chummy photos at George Bush's ranch
in Crawford, Texas. Roh Moo-hyun makes short trips to Washington for awkward meetings at
the White House, such as the one that he was due to have with Mr Bush this week. Japan and
South Korea are both close allies of the United States, but only the America-Japan alliance is running
smoothly these days. Mr Bush and his pal Junichiro share a common view of North Korea. Mr Roh,
by contrast, has upset both countries by consistently excusing the North's behaviour. The quarrel has
exacerbated tensions between Japan and South Korea, which are also feuding?again?over history.
http://www.economist.com/world/asia/displayStory.cfm?story_id=4065632


Roh will meet Bush in the White House, take part in a working lunch and fly home.
No state dinner, no chats with Congressional leaders, none of the pageantry that
often surrounds a visit by an allied leader.

On Tuesday,
Mr Bush stood alongside Tony Blair, the UK prime minister,
and warmly welcomed him: “I appreciate your friendship.
I appreciate your courage, and I appreciate your vision.
I'm really thrilled to be able to work with you.
” There was little public endorsement of his relationship with Mr Roh.

Even President Recep Erdogan of Turkey
[who visited the White House this week]
got a better reception,
yet their country was unhelpful in Iraq with real repercussions for the US.”

SEOUL, South Korea - Thousands of South Korean students rallying Sunday against the U.S.

base, and at least 12 people were injured and more than 20 were arrested.
Demonstrators marched through Seoul before attempting to enter the main Yongsan U.S.
military base in the city center. They called for the withdrawal of the 32,500 U.S.
troops stationed in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War.
Demonstrators also gathered near the U.S. Embassy in downtown Seoul demanding talks with
the ambassador.
