On the Korean Front

South Korea becoming more “diverse“:

Some 1.74 million foreigners live in Korea at present, accounting for 3.4 percent of the total population, according to the Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs.

But data compiled by regional governments reveal a more diverse demographic landscape where foreigners account for more than five percent in 12 metropolitan cities.

Societies are usually considered multicultural when foreigners account for more than five percent of the population.


Surely President Park understands that China hopes to envelope the Korean Peninsula one day?

President Park Geun-hye joined Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on Thursday for a massive military parade commemorating the end of World War II. She stood alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin and other dignitaries in Tiananmen Square as thousands of troops and millions of dollars worth of equipment passed by in the carefully choreographed event….

Park decided to attend despite the West’s anxiety as she walks a fine line between her government’s close political ties with the United States and a booming economic relationship with China.

China now accounts for a full quarter of Korea’s overseas trade and has become the nation’s top trading partner. The South Korean government also often looks to the Chinese for their influence over the increasingly unpredictable North Korea.

“The main reason for the decision to attend the military parade was the belief that China’s cooperation is essential, not only for peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula, but reunification as well,” a government official said.

  • The Chinese have no history of foreign military involvement.

    The Chinese have no significant economically beneficial relationship with North Korea. The Chinese do have a significant economic relationship with South Korea.

    The Chinese do not want a rogue North Korean government to cause problems. At this time there is no positive Chinese political spin for NORK intrangesence.

    At some point the North will collapse of its own accord. Hopefully the Chinese have let the NORK leaders know not to mess with a system that serves China’s interests.

    As for a multi-culti South Korea, they will not put up with Islam any longer than they would put up with ebola.

      They’ve had some border disputes with India and Vietnam that resulted in military action, and historically there have been wars with Burma, Vietnam and Siam(Thailand). Then there’s Tibet and Dzungaria but China would say that their various interventions were internal.

      • China did not invade Korea. The NORKS asked China for help against the US. The US was near the Chinese border. What would anyone expect.

        All of their other military involvements with other countries revolve around border areas in disputed areas.

        They have no history of fighting in far away places.

      Of course not, the Chinese only recover territories which they have identified as ‘previously held Chinese territory’, such as Korea.

    People with epicanthic folds have a more profound understanding of the meaning and importance of “culture” than us round-eyes. No sarcasm, just experience.

    Before long, Korea will harvest its own halal fruit of diversity, because their diversity, like every other country’s diversity, comes with the Islamic infection as well……

    China is establishing beach heads all over the world, including Canada, to gain geopolitical influence. We are being so naïve bringing so many of them. According to CSIS they have already infiltrated our governments exercising influence on our national decisions.

    Funny thing is that the Native population in Canada is around 3.4%, and that level of Demography is one large pain in the ass.
