Korea Fight Pics...
This photo is of a truce meeting gone wrong at Panmunjom. A mob of North Koreans beat and stomp an American (on the ground at right). If you look closely at the guy on the far left, you can see a North Korean with a cigarette dangling from his mouth participating in the mayhem.e mayhem.
Korea Pics One...
This picture shows ancient statues carved circa 1790 (China ruled Korea then) sitting forlornly in a vacant field in the DMZ. I wonder if they have been plowed over to make room for a housing development.

Jackson a Symbol of Times...

But I’ve come to view him in a larger context, because in a way, he was a symbol of an America that went wrong. He represents the unhealthy growth of the cult...
