My Boy's serving in SK. He was driving a 2.5 ton when a whack job korean,[note small "k"], was weaving through traffic,clipped the transport, and proceeded to roll his soju powered "K-car" through 4 lanes of oncoming "K-cars". At this point you'd normally think... Idiot korean, 2.5 ton transport, cool.

Well, spanky, that's not where it ends.

Said korean, through the backing of our bestest friends in the whole wide world, the korean .gov, have decided that in any accident the vehicle with the least damage for those following along in Rio Linda that would be the transport, is automatically at fault. So, the korean.gov is holding my boy at fault, and in addition, said sojumaninKcar is suing.

Fortunately my boy was driving with a person who had stripes on his shoulder, and in fact was the lookout; apparently a valuable position on the wild streets of k-town.

It's being resolved today, no worries he'll be cleared of wrongdoing.

Freakin third world shithole.

Thanks 82nd.

It just irks me that we spend billions covering the arses of "allies", with no apparent appreciation.

Although I've never been to SK, from what my son says the Koreans, in general, are fine people.


With the exception of aforementioned sojuman.

My wife has been there twice with the NG.

Her only comment about the place has been that it stinks.

When she gets home she airs out her gear and says that she has to do it cause it smells like Korea and she ca't stand it.

While I was there I noticed a few things:

No american cars on the road owned by Koreans. Seems they don't allow them to be imported but they ship plenty of theirs to us...

Someone already mentioned them having their hand in Uncle Sam's pocket. Lots of Korean hotels were built with our money. No room on base? Stay in a Korean hotel for a couple of weeks with uncle sugar paying the bill.

Everyone is obsessed with money, your money, and how they can get it.

The older folks were nice.

I was happy to leave.

Ahh, the smell of kimchi,
the sound of dog farms,
the Osan $6 whore.

8 friggin days, and I am off this rock, and not another trip to the ROK, or any other shit hole in the pacific.

That place over there in the desert might be a nice change for a day or two.

Yes! This is an EXCELLENT post! Because all Koreans are obvioulsy trying to suck money out of the people that are there.

It seemed to me that the korean drivers had no respect for human life.


Not even kids and old people. I saw an old woman walking down the side of a road and a korean sized cargo truck rumbled by. Truck clipped her and sent her ass into the roadside ditch. The truck didn't slow down. Me and my fellow jarheads ran obver to check on the woman but I would have to say she was DRT. We called for help and the korean authorities showed up and tossed her into a van w/pick up truck bed on the back. Just like roadkill in the states.


Also saw a kid about 6 or 7 get clipped by a car. The car never slowed down, but the kid got up and ran off. I guess he was made of rubber...

And yet we have people lined up here to demostrate how they are inferior.

They are smart enough to insure their economy flourishes, while Americans cant wait to line up and bash our products, export our jobs or buy that foreign shit, and the only ones who lose are our kids.

My squad leader, Sgt. Filer, lived in the ville with his lovely Korean wife (she was a real sweetheart of a lady), he had about 5 or 6 years in the ROK (we used to say he had more time on the . One morning he's riding his bike in, a little kid darts out of a doorway right into his front tire. Kid goes flying. Mother comes running out of the doorway, doesn't even look at the kid, and starts yelling at him in Korean that he has to pay her. Meanwhile the kid is laying in the dirt crying. Sgt Filer checks the kid out, he's just shaken up, and pays the lady about $5- in won. End of story.


Hehe: I'll have to suggest he always carry $5 in won for just this type of excrement storm.
Not surprised to hear of similar situations.

Stand in a pile of garbage next to a porta potty. That's the smell of Korea. No wait, Kosovo. No wait, Iraq. No wait, Macedonia. No wait, Juarez, Mexico.

Eventually, we'll pull out of S. Korea because our interests will be focused elsewhere. When that happens, the S. Koreans are going to p00p a brick when the N. Korean horde rolls south on Red China's dime.

First I would like to say that I'm sorry for your boy getting into an accident. Gald nobody was hurt.
The guy sueing mostly likely got the idea from us Americans. Since we sue for everything. I don't know where you guys go in Korea but I go about 6 times a year on business in Seoul and Tegu and Inchon. NEver stinks fact Seoul is a very clean city. 99% of the people I have met there are wonderful, treat Americans like kings.

FYI, those American cars we drive now with better warrenties, you can thank alot of that to the Koreans. I'm in the auto industry and that Ford, GM, Jaguar, Chrysler you drive is mostly made from foreign parts now.

I watched some Korean jackass in a new Hyundai get accordioned between two tractor trailers full of MK-84 bombs on MSR-1 back in 1989.

Don't know the long term outcome but when the KNP showed up they chewed the guys ass and told us to go on our way.

Times must be changing over there.

The country is strange. Korean mothers send their kids outside to play all day, unsupervised, and then wonder why they get run over by Corp of Engineer dump trucks?

I got into a POV accident (my fault) with a Korean driver and because I couldn't come to an immediate agreement on restitution, I got arrested by the American MP's (to keep me from being arrested by the KNP). Thank god for the SOFA agreement.

I was at Camp Casey 1991-1992. Headquarters 2nd Infantry Division. Spent many a night getting trashed down in TDC. One of my guys fell in love and borrowed money from every one he knew so he could buy his woman from one of the clubs. I think mama-san settled for about $3000. Anyway, he married this girl and rented a hooch downtown. Every time he went to the field she was back at the club selling her ass. Very sad actually.

Industrious Koreans would come on post and clean out the dumpsters, then sell the trash back to G.I.s from their little second hand shops. I remember seeing porno mags on the shelves that still had coffee grounds stuck to them. Spent brass was melted down and shaped into ashtrays, plates, plaques, and anything else that could be made from brass. Used BDUs with fresh patches sewn on them were folded neatly in a stack in another shop. And, yes, I've ate french fries wrapped in paper with "Official US Army Orders" typed all over it.

"Slicky Boys" would infiltrate our bivouac area at night and steal everything that wasn't tied down. The only thing they didn't take was firearms.

When I was stationed at Camp Red Cloud in Oiujong Bui a Sergeant Major was murdered outside the front gate in broad daylight by a crazy Korean armed with a dumb-bell. The reason? He couldn't stand seeing an American walking with a Korean girl.

Seems there was at least one case where a G.I. stabbed his girlfriend to death at a hooch in the ville.

I'll never forget the smell of Kimchi, Soju, and fertilizer.

The drivers were better than the drivers in the Philippines. I can remember being in a taxi on Roxas Blvd in Manila and that faster he went the further around the driver turned his head to talk.

I was only in one accident in the short time I was in Korea. We were in a marked military van and we had one of those our mirror knocked his mirror off clangers and the driver came storming up screaming until he saw we had a female driver, shrugged his shoulders and walked away.

I really enjoyed the food most of the time, and the various pickled veggies were usually pretty good.

My son gets back from Kunsan in less than two weeks and I told him we found a nice Korean BBQ buffet place we could go to. His answwer was basically along the line of he's going to pig out on Mexcian food until it runs out his ears and he intends to never look at kimchee let alone eat it ever again.
