Without getting into details of the new appointments in UN, I can say that from my observations Koreans are one of the most backin-each-other nations in the world.

In practice, if a bidder A(non-Korean) and bidder B ( Korean)  apply for delivering their services/goods to a Korean customer, the result is known before the envelopes are opened. Koreans do not play fair if there is any question of Korean/non-Korean choice.

The Only One

The only one that the U.S. would have been "happy" with as Sec. General would be the BULLmesister hisself - John Bolton.  That's the only way America can ensure that the Lakota's application to join the UN never sees the light of day:

The First Half Rules Out the Second

"The US is happy with any secretary general that does not come from a routine HR abuser and would prefer one that is also not an American."

That is automatic, in view of the American record in HR abuses around the globe - starting with the School of the Americas a few decades ago (still there, under another name), and "climaxing" with Abu Grahib and Gitmo.

Dob,


I'm afraid you're right. Have experienced strange things in the RoK.

according to my personal experience in this world, including many others' observations both Chinese nationals and non-Chinese nationals (European descendents, S./C. Americans etc.), S.Koreans are the most nationalism, and the narrowest minded nationality in the world. Not enough, they don't care and respect any other nationals or races, except 1) America; 2) Western; 3) or Japan.  

I personally very much look down such type of persons -

Aren't they the same ?  : Human Rights abusers and Americans ?  Abu Ghraib , Guantanamo Bay , rendition and torture ,  eavesdropping on private citizens without court order ,  illegal invasion , raping women in your " protectorate " ?   Baron Boring is at last admitting to the obvious .  Cheers buddy .

3hairs,

They are very moody and change their attitude quite often. What is valid today isn't anymore tomorrow. As for them respecting Japanese, I doubt this. They love to hate them. Until about 2  or 3 years ago you couldn't find a single Japanese product in the country. In general buying anything foreign was and I believe still is considered to be unpatriotic.
