    US Marine arrested on Okinawa for alleged trespassing

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/11/18/us-marine-arrested-on-okinawa/#ixzz2CZW9IGPb

    Japanese police arrested a U.S. Marine on Sunday on suspicion of trespassing on the southern island of Okinawa amid anger over military crimes and demands for stricter regulations for U.S. troops.

    The incident, the second after the U.S. military had stepped up disciplinary steps last month, immediately triggered harsh reaction from the Okinawa government.

    Police said 1st Lt. Tomas Chanquet of the Marine Corps Air Station Futenma allegedly sneaked into a room through an unlocked door and slept until spotted by a resident who called police.

    Sunday’s arrest was especially inflammatory on Okinawa, where the Emperor Akihito was visiting to attend a fisheries event.

    An alleged rape by two Navy sailors last month enraged Okinawans and reignited deep-rooted anti-base sentiment on the island, home to more than half the 52,000 U.S. troops in Japan.

    The case led to a curfew on all troops in Japan, but two weeks later a U.S. airman allegedly assaulted a teenager. Sunday’s incident also raises questions over the effectiveness of the curfew and other disciplinary steps.

    No more Tom means no more tu quoque interjections.

    T-bone Tyler: Yet another article showing that 20% of Korean women have accepted cash for sex.

    Tom: Look at this article. They busted a brothel in San Antonio last week. Military City? Yeah full of GIs and hookers.

    Retired GI: I was there last week Tom. The girls’ names were: Mi-suk, Mi-ho, So-young and Young-ho.

    Tom: The yankee girls are all called Big Bum.

    Stephen: They use Korean names so you’ll feel more comfortable Tom?

    Did they call you Wie-na?

    ChickenHead: They busted a hostbar in San Francisco last week.

    Guys’ names were Mi-bum, Bum-mi, Bum-man and Mi-suk.

    Tom went up to the one of the hosts and asked; “Yeo-bum or Mi-bum?”

    Host says; “Tom, Yoo-suk”.

    This young woman would probably protest against S. Korea retaliating when N. Korea bombs S. Korea.

    Gotta hand it to the Thai Prime Minister when welcoming Obama speaking English in a Q/A with reporters. It’ll be a cold day in hell when a S. Korean President does the same.

    #2: If Tom has really gone the way of the passenger pigeon we have to create another out of the ether, somehow…

    South Koreans have the worst reputation of any ethnicity or country’s people on earth. Maybe the Nigerians rival them for this, but everyone else is just so much nicer in comparison.

    I am back in the States for vacation. There was a commercial on TV for cold medicine. It said that a sneeze can linger in the air for three hours. The only thing I could think of was f#$king open mouth sneezing and coughing unhygenic Koreans.

    NorKs have had their Solzhenitsyn Moment with The Aquariums of Pyongyang.

    Quite a few more cold and starving winters before they have their Gorbachev Moment.

    Terminally ill Korean American woman fights Christian parents for right to die

    http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/grace-sung-eun-lee-home-thanksgiving-article-1.1205685#ixzz2CvLqaCia

    Left paralyzed and unable to breathe on her own by an inoperable brain tumor, Lee made headlines when she declared “I want to die” over the objections of her religious Korean-immigrant parents.

    Her dad, who believes ending life support is suicide and a sin, asked the Nassau County Supreme Court in September to make him her guardian, saying Lee was not in her right mind when she asked to die.

    But a state appellate panel ruled in October that Lee’s parents could not override her wishes and stop North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, L.I., from removing life support.

    China’s new passport contains a map with its grandiose claims to the South China Sea. The Philippines and Vietnam object. Manuel Mogato reports for Reuters.
