Depends on who you ask...or better yet, what "news outlet" you check up on. Personally as a moderate, my life hasn't changed since 9/11 other than emotionally. My parents still have jobs, our family still buys new cars, we're still in our McMansion, etc. Personally, I think media outlets spin the news way too much. You've got bias on both sides of the fence.AXLE said:Notice the burning of the American flag? Everyone hates the USA at the moment and you can't blame them. I, as an American, am ashamed of what my government has done in recent years as I'm sure many other Americans are as well.
Axle, why not get a big bottle of propane and chuck some flames about then. Mainly because it looks like fun, but you could call it expressing an opinion. Although it might be a bit dangerous (the propane experiment that is).AXLE said:I, as an American, am ashamed of what my government has done in recent years as I'm sure many other Americans are as well.
My earlier response to these demonstrations was wrong. This looks like the demonstrations against moving the big US army headquarters from Seoul to another location in Korea. It means taking land that's probably been in some family's possession for generations. A real sensitive issue by anyone's standards. The same thing happened in Japan when the gov't took farmland to build the Tokyo Narita airport. The demonstrations went on for years.gr8 said:what the hell is going on in korea??
