Stop codling the schmucks!

The point is that South Korea has always been a globalizing beneficiary. Once Koreans relaize how much they benefit from such a small amount of contact with a few countries, converting to full-blown globalization.

But if the intelligentsia continue to play this semantic game, and call inputs imports, then the mercantilists and sheep-eyed isolationists will rule the farm.

Anyone who thinks nations are anything more than political window-dressing needs a job or an enema!

"Once Koreans relaize how much they benefit from such a small amount of contact with a few countries, converting to full-blown globalization."

Once Koreans realize how much they benefit from such a small amount of trade with a few backward countries, converting to full-blown globalization should be easier. Unless of course, you beleive Koreans just like pain.

I note with appropriate humor the mention of Leyte Gulf, another "Japanese Victory" when the opposition "managed to get away"...

However, I cannot imagine there would be any news here... what other country can you imagine *importing* kimchi?

I was going to say the US, but I suspect that domestic capacity is sufficient to meet demand, as it were.

well...i think it adds up..I think the medal tally is: JAPAN Gold (although they call it "Kimuchi"...Silver goes to the USA (every Ahn Chang-Ho symposium needs kimchi supply!!!) 3. Europe.....in Germany we have Asian Supermarkets in almost every City, selling Kimchi....of course this canned ironlike-tasting cabbage can not be called "kimchi", but it's at least what they print on the label :D
