South Korean embassy says “it was extra work and a burden to them and why should they care about these children from North Korea?”

If those words are an exact quite, it is a pathetic reflection of how South Korea treats refugees, especially children.

Given all they hype about the “largest military parade in a decade“, what is really happening in South Korea?  North Korea beat its chest and raged publicly against South Korea and the US but them one day, finally backed down.  Typical behaviour and easily seen as a regular pattern.

So what really if the deal here? The more I look, the more its all just for show. Nothing significant ever happens. Sure, some will point to the shelling of that island in 2010, but readily. Some remote island where no public was around to really verify a damn thing and only the state media to report. Hardly reliable IMNSHO.

Sigh. I really don’t like this “follow the money” reason everyone I see things happen in the world…

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!

  1. Sadly I also hear that many North Korean defectors live sad lives once in South Korea. They are shunned because of who they are and what they have seen. They have nightmares and social issues for the rest of their lives. They are just broken humans that really show how true oppression breaks the human spirit. I am glad to see others blogging on this and caring. -OM
