but dont forget ur own ancestry.  people tends to behave better, that way....


Oh, I don't.  I am proud of my ancestry, but that doesn't mean I won't criticise the countries of my ancestors when I feel their governments have done something wrong.
And while I am proud of my ancestry, I also expect and encourage people of different nationalities to me, to be proud of their own ancestry. I don't claim my own ethnicity to be "better" than anyone elses. All human societies have made valuable contributions to the collective benefit of mankind. All of them have also made some contributions which are not quite so helpful.

It would be hard for KOREANs to forgive the JAPANESE.

Unlikely for a very very long time.
Did you people know what the Japanese did to the Korean people?
This was related to be by a Korean colleaque of mine during my days in Dupont.

So, it might be accurate.

During the OCCUPATION OF KOREA, the Japanese tried to wipe out the history of the Korean people. The Japanese wanted to implement "Jewish master race" concept on the Koreans!!!!!

The Korean Clan temples were burnt down. Records of families were wiped out.
Historical building, any trace of Korean pride were destroyed and burnt down.
Nothing was leftover. It was designed to "wipe out" Korean cultural tradition.


and with "tears" in his eye, these Korean said "Koreans will never forgive the Japanese"


I have doubts Korean and Japanese can reconcile.

An excellent point, Joe, and a possible explanation for the outrageous anti American and anti Japanese ranting which we see in the forums.
