    Seoul Metro Gov’t tells E-Mart what not to sell in effort to make new law;
    http://koreajoongangdaily.joinsmsn.com/news/article/Article.aspx?aid=2968294
    “The Seoul Metropolitan Government said they have designated 51 goods that need to be taken off the shelves of large discount chain stores such as E-Mart and Lotte Mart as a measure to stimulate consumer consumption at traditional and smaller markets.
    The city government said the plan is only a recommendation for those large discount chains but doesn’t have legal binding force yet.

    The government said that it will hold a public hearing in early April with officials of large discount chains, local merchants and citizens to check the feasibility of the plan before they bring it over to lawmakers.

    “We will propose the Ministry of Knowledge Economy revise relevant laws and bring them over to the National Assembly to make them into official laws,” Lee Jun-hyeong, a spokesman of the city government said in a press briefing.
    Large discount chains strongly oppose the designation. “We judge that our total revenue would decrease by about 15 percent,” a PR official of E-Mart, the largest discount chain in the country, told the Korea JoongAng Daily.
    “When the city government forced large discount stores to close on weekends last year, it didn’t help those small store owners generate more revenue. It rather made people purchase more from the Internet and television home shopping networks.”

    The official also added that many middle and small size companies who currently supply about 75 percent of goods being sold at large chain stores could be seriously damaged by the city government’s move.

    “It would be inconvenient,” a 34-year-old Seocho, southern Seoul, resident said. “It means that we have to go to large chain stores to buy industrial products and drive to smaller markets to buy vegetables. Those stores generally don’t have parking lots.”

    The State Dept. has since rescinded Samira Ibrahim’s award. What I find troubling is not that the State Dept, failed to read her entire Twitter feed before selecting her; it’s that her views may be the norm throughout the Muslim world although not shared by all. It was a fellow Egyptian activist who saved her deleted tweets and passed them on,

    The Seoul city government said yesterday they will advise large discount chain stores and super-supermarkets (SSM) to stop selling dozens of goods as a measure to protect local merchants running smaller markets.

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government said they have designated 51 goods that need to be taken off the shelves of large discount chain stores such as E-Mart and Lotte Mart as a measure to stimulate consumer consumption at traditional and smaller markets.

    These are the goods that the municipal government has designated: 17 kinds of vegetables, including onions, bean sprouts and cabbage; seven kinds of seafood, including mackerel and squid, five kinds of animal products including beef feet and beef leg bones; eight kinds of dried goods including seaweed and anchovies; nine kinds of perishable foods including tofu and eggs, as well as five goods including soju, beer and trash bags.

    Serial arsonist lit Insa-dong blaze

    http://koreajoongangdaily.joinsmsn.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=2968295&cloc=joongangdaily|home|newslist1

    The 52-year-old man surnamed Ahn who was arrested for setting fire to the sit-in camp occupied by fired Ssangyong Motor workers in front of Daehanmun, the main gate of Deoksu Palace in Jung District, central Seoul, on Sunday, is also the person who set fire to a restaurant in a food alley in Insa-dong that burned down six buildings and dozens of stores last month.

    The Namdaemun Police Precinct in central Seoul found that Ahn also had set fire to other places in Seoul in the past: burning another protest site in Myeong-dong, central Seoul, on March 1; setting fire to a trash can in a Burger King in Myeong-dong on March 1; and setting fire to an empty box outside of a restaurant in Jung District on Sunday.

    At around 8:25 p.m. on Feb. 17, a fire broke out in a restaurant of a three-story wooden building between exit No. 3 of Jonggak Station of subway line No. 1 and a food alley in Insa-dong, a few blocks behind the Jongno Tower building.

    USA beats Canada 9 -4, advances to Miami for 2nd round WBC.
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/2013/03/10/usa-beats-canada-advances-in-world-baseball-classic/1977295/
    The Game: Team USA not only salvaged their pride, but perhaps the long-term future of the World Baseball Classic with a 9-4 victory over Canada. Adam Jones, on a 1-and-2 pitch, doubled into the left-center gap to score Joe Mauer and David Wright to give them their first lead of the game in the eighth inning. It was perhaps the biggest hit in Team USA history in the 3.0 version of the WBC.
    What it means: It wasn’t pretty, but Team USA played just well enough to advance to the second round in Miami. They were the No. 1 seed from pool D, advancing along with Italy. If their play doesn’t improve in the second round, it may be their final stop.
    The scene: It was a quiet crowd at Chase Field, drawing 22,425 fans, that finally awoke in the eighth inning. The USA crowd didn’t get loud until Jones’ two-run double, and then got jazzed again when Arizona Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez took the mound in the eighth. Team Canada had almost as many supporters, saying that if the game had been in Canada, it would have been a sellout.
    What’s next: USA advances to Miami for second round as the No. 1 seed. Canada, playing in the biggest game of the country’s international baseball history, will go home.

    kangaji, I can’t read that, but this much is true: there is no military alliance between China and North Korea. That’s what the Norks mean when they say that they’re self-reliant and that the South Korean leaders are American puppets. It’s what they mean when they say they need nukes because they’re not under anybody’s umbrella. China has no bases in North Korea and is not obliged to come to North Korea’s assistance.

    ‘scrap command transfer’ Rep. Chung says
    http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2013/03/116_131871.html

    Rep. Chung Mong-joon, former chairman of the ruling Saenuri Party, said Monday that Seoul should not take over wartime operational control (OPCON) of the nation’s military from the United States amid increasing threats from North Korea.

    A transfer of OPCON is scheduled for 2015 under a bilateral agreement made between Seoul and Washington in 2010.

    “The plan to transfer OPCON must be scrapped. At the same time, we must beef up our conventional weapons,” stated Chung in a news release. “North Korea is ratcheting up its threats to attack and we should be prepared.”

    Chung said the North is likely to act on its recent aggressive rhetoric.

    “The latest wordings from the North are either issued by its Army Supreme Command or Kim Jong-un himself,” Chung said. “What’s more important is that the North Korean regime has gained confidence through its successful launch of a rocket and a nuclear bomb test. We never know what its military leadership will do backed by a young leader who repeatedly adopts a hard-line stance.”

    Faking U.S. visa application papers?
    http://koreajoongangdaily.joinsmsn.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=2968428&cloc=joongangdaily|home|newslist1

    The Seoul Metropolitan Agency said yesterday that 20 people were booked by police for involvement in fabricating documents for U.S. visa applications.

    Two female brokers, a 43-year-old Jeong and 45-year-old Choi, collected a total of some 350 million won ($319,700) in fees for forging supporting documents for visa applications for some 100 clients since June 2008, according to the agency’s international crime investigation unit.

    Another 18 – mostly women seeking employment as sex workers in the U.S. – were booked without physical detention for commissioning the brokers for visas through forged documents.

    Some 70 percent of their clients were women in their 20s and 30s, said the police, who wanted employment in the adult entertainment or sex industry in the U.S.

    A good portion of these women had been deported from the U.S., including a 31-year-old woman surnamed Kim who was deported from the U.S. for prostitution and had been denied reentry into the U.S.

    Since early 2000, broker Jeong ran a visa agency and worked with a woman surnamed Lee, based in the United States, who was in charge of recruiting clients in need of visas there.

    Starting from 2008, they ran advertisements in local newspapers and magazines in Los Angeles and New Jersey in neighborhoods heavily populated by Koreans that stated, “100 percent guarantee that anyone can get a U.S. visa.”

    U.S. Army veteran joins AL QAEDA

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2291758/U-S-Army-veteran-joins-al-Qaeda-linked-group-months-fighting-rebel-forces-Syria.html

    A U.S. Army veteran says he has joined an offshoot of al Qaeda after spending several months fighting alongside Syrian rebel forces.

    Eric Harroun, 30, of Phoenix, has joined al Qaeda-linked group Jabhat al-Nusra in part because of his fascination with the conflict in the Middle East.

    Harroun, who is known among Syrian rebels and loyalists as ‘The American,’ joined the U.S. Army in 2000 and he was discharged with full disability pay for an injury in 2003 without ever having seen battle, according to his father.

    He was injured while riding in a pickup truck that hit a tree and he now has a steel plate in his head, his father Darryl Harroun told Fox.

    ‘Now he has mood swings and what-not,’ he said. ‘He was already suffering from depression before that, and the accident just kind of multiplied it,’ the elder Mr Harroun said he frequently talks to his son by phone.

    Following a news report that top military brass played golf over the weekend amid escalating threats from North Korea, the Blue House yesterday ordered a special investigation.

    “The office of the senior secretary for civil affairs immediately launched a probe,” said Yoon Chang-jung, presidential spokesman. “We are paying special attention to the slack discipline of civil servants during this transition period of the administration.”

    The Maeil Business Newspaper reported yesterday that the Taeneung Country Club, which is a military facility in the Nowon District, northeastern Seoul, was fully booked over the weekend with senior military members hitting the links.

    The report said that since early morning Saturday, cars provided by the Ministry of National Defense to top brass in the military poured into the parking lot of the facility. A photo of the cars with blurred license plates was printed with the article.

    Other military country clubs also were crowded, the report said.

    Key points from above article:
    오 연구원은 “지난해 말 중국에 가서 최고 엘리트급 공산당 간부들과 비공개회의를 가졌는데 그들이 북한을 원색적으로 성토했다”며 “그들은 ‘첫 번째 뚱보가 김일성, 두 번째 뚱보가 김정일이고 세 번째 뚱보가 김정은인데, 이 세 번째가 하늘 무서운 줄 모르고 날뛰니 우리도 기분이 나쁘다’, ‘북한이 핵을 잘못 쏘면 바로 강 건너에 있는 우리한테 날아올 수 있어 걱정된다’는 얘기도 했다”고 말했다.
    At the end of last year the highest ranking officials of the communist party cadre held closed door meeting in which they poored out raw criticism on North Korea and said “the first fat ass was Kim Il Seong, the second fat ass was Kim Jeong Il, and the third fatass is Kim Jeong Eun.” They are worried about North Korean launching a missile accidentally across the [yalu] river.

    오 연구원은 “(중국의) 최고 정책 결정권자들이 노년층이기 때문에 단기간 내에 표면적 정책이 바뀌지는 않겠지만, 속으로 북한을 좋아하지 않는 것은 사실”이라며 “특히 교육을 잘받고 풍요를 경험한 젊은 엘리트들은 중국이 북한 때문에 덤터기로 국제사회에 ‘깡패국가’로 인식되는 것을 불쾌하게 여긴다”고 말했다.

    basically says that the highest policy decision makers won’t change the current policies because their old foggies but nobody likes the North and the young elite who are better educated are sick of North Korea and don’t see why they should keep supporting an international pariah…

    Leon was hoping for an opportunity for conspiracy theorists to come out @42. Well, they just might have one.

    Read up on Ratlines — the exodus escape routes for Axis fascists after WWII. The primary destination was Argentina. Much of it was set up by Bishop Alois Hudal; the Spiritual Director of the German People resident in Italy prior to the end of the war.

    While Hudal was exiled from the Church for his beliefs and actions, I’m sure conspiracy theorists will soon make the connection and suggest the rise of a fascist secret society to the height of power.

    50. There’s always dirty laundry. Never fear! :lol:

    On 15 April 2005, a human rights lawyer filed a criminal complaint against Bergoglio, as superior in the Society of Jesus of Argentina, accusing him of involvement in the kidnapping by the Navy in May 1976 (during the military dictatorship) of two Jesuit priests. The priests, Orlando Yorio and Franz Jalics, were found alive five months later, drugged and semi-naked. Yorio accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over to the death squads by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work. Jalics refused to discuss it after moving into seclusion in a German monastery. Horacio Verbitsky, an Argentine investigative journalist and author, wrote a book about this and other related events titled El Silencio: de Paulo VI a Bergoglio: las relaciones secretas de la Iglesia con la ESMA.

    According to the book, after their release, Yorio accused the then Provincial of his Jesuit order San Miguel, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, to have denounced him. Father General Pedro Arrupe in Rome was informed by letter or during the abduction, both he and Orlando Yorio were excluded from the Jesuit Order.

    Black woman sues Apple for copying

    Sweet Brown is suing Apple, a radio program called The Bob Rivers Show, and a handful of other parties for unauthorized use of her likeness, according to court documents.

    The basis of the lawsuit stems from a song called “I Got Bronchitis.” The Bob Rivers Show, according to Sweet Brown’s complaint, produced the song with samples from Wilkins’ interview with the local TV-news station. The song sampled phrases like, “Ain’t nobody got time for that,” “Ran for my life,” and “Oh, Lord Jesus it’s a fire.”

    The suit was first filed in the District Court of Oklahoma County in June 2012. At that time, Wilkins sought a total of $15 million from the defendants. The suit has since moved to the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma.

General of the Army Douglas MacArthur, as played by Tommy Lee Jones, decides not to try Emperor Hirohito for war crimes. The review doesn’t say anything about Korea, so I don’t know if the film delves into that aspect of the post-war period.

    Rated PG-13 (for violent content, brief strong language and smoking).

    Here’s a clip on You Tube. MacArthur lands, unarmed.

    Airman Sexually Harasses Korean Woman in Elevator
    http://news.tv.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2013/03/15/2013031590016.html

    Yeah it’s in Korean but you get the idea; for a good laugh load the page in Google Translate which butchers it.

    It appears this guy is from the same unit as the “Great SP Handcuffing”.

    KNP’s caught the guy after a few hours.

    Seriously… there’s really never a good time to try this but whhaatttheeeefuukkk? Why would you try this at a time when USFK’s looking pretty shifty here in the ROK?

    More on the Air-Assault (heh)
    Sorry forgot to explain what he was doing…

    For some reason the guy was insisting the girl in the elevator look at the pr0n he had on his phone. You can see how pushy he was. Who would think this is a way to pick up a girl I dunno.

    Fake war hero sentenced to year in prison

    He claimed he was a war hero injured in Iraq and bilked the Veterans Administration for thousands of dollars in medical care. He even persuaded the organization Vacations for Veterans to give him a free trip to Hawaii.

    But the truth, federal prosecutors said, is that Danny Crane served less than three months in the Army and never fought on the front lines.

    At his sentencing hearing Thursday, Crane said he was remorseful for the web of lies he spun.

    I’m not a drinker but I see the appeal; why the pills though? You can get trashed easily enough on liquids alone here.

    Hmm not sure how all these people have the time to be outside doing bad stuff. When I was in this was exercise time and I was stuck doing shift work and explicitly told not to leave post on my off time.

    A shipyard worker started a fire on the USS Miami last May 23, doing four hundred megadollars damage. He’s now been sentenced to seventeen years, reports Chris Boyette for CNN.
