A South Korean Rapper, Forgiveness, and Restitution

I was glad to see you recommend a year of active restitution for PSY, Mr. Brown, because that was the first thought that occurred to me. Words are cheap, a WH invite for this creep was an affront to patriotic Americans everywhere. As a Korean vet, the level of expressed ingratitude by South Koreans has been a stone in my craw for years. And all the while the stick it to us economically and politically, they maintain a military posture NKoea could over run in 2 weeks. They expect us to bail them out again. Its time to pull our trip wire troops from SKorea. Let them spend a few of those Hyundai/Kia profits on a realistic Army.

It could be argued that the S. Korean gov't doesn't dedicate enough resources, but I found the S. Korean army to be a truly dedicated group, commited to defending their country from a threat on their doorstep. In the past, we've sidelined them because we want to maintain control...like the little brother you never pass the ball to. They are stepping up a lot recently now that we are giving them the chance.

After his YouTube video went mega-viral, the South Korean rapper named PSY received an invitation to sing and dance at a White House Christmas party. But it was quickly learned that in 2004, he had rapped lyrics wishing for the death and torture of American troops in Iraq, along with their families. PSY quickly issued a humble apology to the American people, and the White House reaffirmed that PSY’s show would go on. Was this the right thing to do?

In case you haven’t heard of PSY, his Korean rap video “Gangnam Style” has been viewed more than 900...
