    “Basically there is diversity in the sea in the same way as there is in Korean personality and opinion”
    nig Thanks.
    I agree that there is diversity in Korean perosonality and opinion.
    I’ve never said all the Koreans were such and such.
    At the same time it is also true that there is strong tendency among koreans to act irrationally toward Japan, the US.
    I am talking about those Koreans who always bring up the past which is often based on preudice. And there are many younger Koreans who hold grudge against Japanese.They have not experienced the colonization. They are educated to hate Japan, to love a corrupt state,North Korea..I am against such education. I am against such culture. I am against Koreans who do not critically examine what they were taught at school and home.I am against Koreans who blindly follow anti-japanese propaganda.And you are supporting such koreans. You are supporting Koreans who say something like it is a great misfortune that the rest of world has to live with Japan.
    I am not against Koreans in general, I am not against Nig.
    I am against Koreans’ irrational hatred against Japan.
    I am against Koreans who just can not resist temptation to raise the past when talking with Japanese.
    I am against Koreans’ anti-Japanese propaganda.
    Without them, I have nothing to say about Korea.

    As i said, I know you love korea.that is great.koreans are happy that they have people like you. And I think you are needed even on this blog because you have a lot to say against criticisms against Korea. But there are times when they should know themselves, good things and bad things about themselves.I am afraid you are not helpful in letting them know bad things about Korea so that they can change for the better.Just as ishihara need strong opponents, some Koreans need strong opponents.

    If you want to criticize Japan, that is no problem.Debito is doing good jobs, but unfortunately his site has no comment section, so nobody can criticize him.Why don’t you open your own blog if you want to criticize Japan. I welcome it.

    To summarize Koreans, it is basically this:

    Most Koreans (I hope that is OK with you, Nig) think that their poo poo doesn’t stink. And among the few who do admit that it stinks, they can never leave it at that but always have to add the following:

    1) Well, the US and Japan’s poo -poo stinks more so that proves we are a superior race.
    2) Yes, we admit our poo poo stinks, but It is the fault of the US or Japan that our poo poo stinks so bad.

    thanks for the link
    I know there are some ethinic Koreans and native Koreans who can talk in a reasonable way. I hope he is like that

    my mother-in-law told me her story of life and especially the brutality of the Korean War. I was a captive audience and she spent hours telling me of hiding in the mountains, watching friends raped and tortured, seeing family members dismembered.

    Ponta,

    http://plungepontificates.blogspot.com

    Nig, if that site is what you consider has ‘international perspective’, then you have shown your true colors. The owner of that site is an utterly repulsive man that has said that Japan (Japan of today) needs to be nuked four or five more times. That site is a real hate site, wishing harm on people.

  8. comment number 8 by: nig

    Matt,

    When I say InternationaI I mean non-Korean and non-Japanese. I don’t mean that he respresents the International Community.

    You are obviously not a fan of his then.

    I would conceed that the site is pro-Korean and critical of Japan but its articles are from better supported sources than this site uses for the most part.

    It also uses fleshed out posts rather than tabloid style pics with single soundbytes.

  9. comment number 9 by: nig

    Polysics,

    It is my name shortened. Does it have some significance for you in a Japanese-Korean context?

  10. comment number 10 by: Mika

    Nig,

    Do you come here everyday just to bash Matt and his blog? You say you are not even Korean so why are you acting like an ultra-nationalistic Korean?

  11. comment number 11 by: nig

    Mika,

    Bash would not be the right word. Refute would be more accurate.

    “You say you are not even Korean so why are you acting like an ultra-nationalistic Korean? ”

    If you show me some examples of my apparent Ultra-Nationalism perhaps we can discuss them here.

  12. comment number 12 by: Mika

    I don’t see you refuting anything. Just read your own posts in this topic, you only took a cheap shot at Matt and Ponta to start an argument that has nothing to do with the original topic. You obviously can’t stand people here who are critical of Korea but you seem to have no problem with the blatant anti-Japan campaign by nationalistic Koreans.

  18. comment number 18 by: wiesunja

    Hey Matt,

    You ought to go to the (www.crisscross.com/jp) website (formerly the JapanToday) and check out this character posting there by the name of “reallyreal”. Holy smokes, that guy makes nig, gman,and plunge look like the rainbow coalition! At first, I thought perhaps it might be plunge or one of the other Korean goons in disguise, but this guy takes it to another level. Every single one of his posts, no matter how neutral the news article is, somehow always manages to slam or ridicule Japan. This guy is a classic “I am so jealous of Japan that I cannot stand to read any news article that is praising Japanese”. For instance, there was a picture of a really hot J-model eating a McDonald’s shrimp burger, and all of the other posters were commenting about how hot she is. Then this guy reallyreal just out of the blue says “Yeah, look at how unhealthy the Japanese are eating fast food while accusing foreigners of being fat!” What the hell???? Just out of nowhere…the article had nothing to do with Japan in the first place but because trolls like him gloat and crave Japan bashing like an alcoholic on relapse. Check out his posts.

    http://www.crisscross.com/jp/bbs/msg/reallyreal

    The thing is, at least with nig, gman, katz, etc. they only spout their venom when someone criticizes Korea. They really don’t care whether or not when someone compliments Japan. But this guy, just HATES to see anyone writing compliments or saying anything good about Japan. A true basketcase.

  19. comment number 19 by: nig

    I like Japan. The picture on my desktop at moment is a photo of Osaka-jo I took a few years ago.

    I tell people that if they can only get to only castle in Japan, Himeji-jo is the most authentic but Osaka-jo is more photogenic because of the recent restoration work.

  20. comment number 20 by: takeshima

    I think Nig, Gman, Kats are just as bad as that guy. But all four of them are part of the corean borg. They cannot think on their own. They are part of the corean collective and take orders from the hive.

  25. comment number 25 by: ponta

    NIg,
    I skimmed over plunge’s blog.
    Nothing is new, as he implies, other Japanese, mostly left wingers, have done this kind of job.
    And I also looked at the link takeshima showed.I was surprised.

    plunge has advocated that it be hit with 4 or 5 more, not in 1945, but in 2005!

    http://www.rjkoehler.com/korea/2006/01/plunge_returns.html#comment-13024057

    Yeah, I’d like to see where I advocated nuking Japan today as well.
    http://www.rjkoehler.com/korea/2006/01/plunge_returns.html#comment-13024874
    He wrote it somewhere, either on his site or the comments section of another site.
    http://www.rjkoehler.com/korea/2006/01/plunge_returns.html#comment-13026077

    Next, either show where I’ve advocated nuking Japan in the modern day or just shut the hell up. I’ve never advocated that. If something like that was written, it was by someone stealing my nick.
    http://www.rjkoehler.com/korea/2006/01/plunge_returns.html#comment-13026384

    But in the beggining, Plung said,

    Will he be renewing his calls for more nukes to be dropped on Japan?

    Posted by: shakuhachi | January 19, 2006 at 02:00 PM

    Just one or two…small ones, really…

    Posted by: Plunge | January 19, 2006 at 02:25 PM

    http://plungepontificates.blogspot.com

    Now one might argue that he was just joking in the first comment. I doubt it,considering his stance about atomic bombs on Japan in 1945. But even if that is the case, his joke is like” genocide just small portion of Jews this time”

    He is not just more than ishihara, but I think, he is crazy.
    Don’t you think so, nig?
    Or are you for korean ultra-nationalists?. After all you said, Korea’s military presence at dokdo is good while Japan is trying to settle the issue peacefully..

  26. comment number 26 by: ponta

    And look at this, nig.
    Isn’t this the same Plunge as the Plunge at the Marmot?
    From the topic he is writing about, I guess he is the same Plunge.
    But in that case, nobody will believe his integrity any more since he implied he did not say such things as Matt accused and he made it appear as if Matt was telling a lie・・・・・I hope he is not the same guy.

    Innocent Japanese and evil Japanese right wing? Seems that dichotomy is broken here.
    Look at how little Japanese kids learn and use racial slur. That is the abhorring power of Koizumi and right wing fascists in Japan; imbuing racism and fascism into Japanese kids. I copied Plunge’s post and sent to a few Korean english websites.

    I have to remind Koreans that if they fail to check those racist Japanese right wing, they will be subjugated/killed/raped again, because Japanese fascists are not regarding Korean as human being.

    To Chinese who honor Japanese democracy. Democracy based on racial hatred does not mean anything. There are few things to learn from pre-Loncoln America (or pre-civil right movement). I won’t feel bad if Chinese government (no matter how evil it is) decides to nuke Japan when American daddy abandons Japan.

  27. comment number 27 by: nig

    I don’t think this is the same plunge. This writing is clearly by a non-native English speaker. There are loads of simple grammar mistakes in it. Plunge’s essays on his website are quite well written. The sentence structure suggests that the writer is asian in my opinion.

  28. comment number 28 by: ponta

    Notice this came from the Japanese Education Minister. Maybe he should direct his comments towards the history textbooks being approved.

    this website is fucking bullshit. obviously there is no strong reaction on the japan side. they are not the ones being insulted. i want to nuke the shit out of japan and kill all you anime porn loving freaks.

    http://japundit.com/archives/2005/03/20/348/

    And he is a big fan of Japandit.

    Now, I’m normally a big fan of Japundit that is, unless Ampontan is posting. Ampontan seems to be the complete shill for the current regime in Japan and rightwing extremists. He most certainly buys into the party line of Japan good, anyone who disagrees with anything they do bad.

    Well, maybe just a coincidence.

    Still how about the first comment at the Marmot?

    Will he be renewing his calls for more nukes to be dropped on Japan?

    Posted by: shakuhachi | January 19, 2006 at 02:00 PM

    Maybe Plunge need to change his username, someone must be misusing his name.

    “The nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula is not a matter for such an insincere and clumsy political dwarf as Japan to deal with,” the Minju Joson daily was quoted as saying by the Korean Central News Agency, monitored in Tokyo.

    “So it is desirable that Japan may step aside to see the settlement of the (nuclear) issue,” it said.

    And you did not answer my question.
    Don’t you think he is crazy, knowing the effect of atomic bomb, to say “drop one or two small ones on Japan?
    NIg, , please the question.

  33. comment number 33 by: nig

    Ponta,

    I will answer your question.

    From his writing he appears to be clinically sane.

    His answer to Matts accusation was sarcastic. It was in questionable taste however.

    I would like to hear the context of the original comments attributed to him but Matt seems to be unwilling to follow that route.

  34. comment number 34 by: ponta

    Is droppoing two atomic bombs just sacarstic statement, and is it is just a matter of taste?
    He knows about atomic bombs, he writes about it.
    “Genocide Japanese civilians for no good reason” is what it says, serious or sacarstic, a matter of taste?
    “Let them suffer the effect of radio active decay”is it a matter of taste?
    “Make them become monstrous figure by dropping atomic bombs. is it a matter of taste?
    “Let’s increase the number of Japanese orphants by nuking Japan, is it a matter of taste?
    “Let the survivors suffer the pain caused by the radio active decay for life” is it a matter of taste.

    Even supposing that is sacarsitic, I do not think this is what sane man can say.

    Now.this is what he says.

    Personally, I feel Japan is the best nation to ‘lead’ Asia, if a leader is necessary.

    Ponta,

    I think the problem is that you don’t seem to understand Plunge’s dry humour.

    Maybe in the future if you get more experience with Native English speakers you will be able to understand sarcasm and droll commentary.

    Okay, it was dry humor, saying that” nuke Japan!”,Knowing the effect of atomic bombs is dry humor,sacarsm, droll commentary, isn’t it?
    It seems any statements will turn into dry humor,sacarsm, droll commentary in English – – – okay,I remember that. I keep it the record that you said that.Thank you.
