KOYANG, South Korea - Here's a pop quiz about the United States.

1) The world's leading arms-exporting country.

2) The world's most heavily nuclear-armed country.

3) The world's leader in chemical weapons research.

4) The world's most peace-loving country that never once was at war with other countries.

The above question was part of a supplemental teaching package on the war in Iraq that was distributed in March by the Korea Teachers and Educational Workers Union.

Thousands of Americans died for their freedom they still enjoy today and this is what they think of us.

I think we ought to leave. Yesterday wouldn't be too soon.

Let them discover a little reality on their own.

Ah, ever-outrageous Juche-bots, better at inciting hatred than teaching. People who are dying to emulate a militant teacher's union in the west and improve it further. 130 of them will visit N. Korea, their "spiritual fatherland," this summer.

If #'s 1., 2., and 3., are true.....why gripe?

What's Un-American about hard facts?

Re #4

It is slanted. If somebody report all you did wrong but little of what you did right, even if all items are true, do you think it is a right presentation about you?

Thanks for the ping.

I think we need to back away, and we're in the process of doing so.

Did I say it is not factual?

You're right, it is slanted. How about the US has been the biggest advocate of democracy and freedom over oppression for the last 50 years -- that one missed the survey.

Dissidence is common. The problem here is, this isn't a matter of liberal/conservative -- a lot of the dissidence that's going on in the ROK is the direct result of propaganda, agitation, and subversion from the North to move the US Forces out and set the stage for the NK takeover of SK (in that order). A quick look at the vanguard "issues-oriented" dissident web sites in the ROK quickly reveals the common thread of NK propaganda (e.g. -- everything on the site being spiteful --anti-ROK govt and anti-US with sudden flowery articles on the NK Korean chearleading squad visiting the ROK during the Asiad games). Anyone who would support an obviously cruel inept tyrant like Kim Jong Il is obviously screwed up -- misguided milleniumists...
