Not the Korean War, I was in Korea as part of a plan by the DoD to improve the internet, connectivity, telephony, secured data & Morale and Welfare of the troops. Most of 2001.

JDs point was the youth of Korea protested the US forces being there - they always have. The older folks have always been completely appreciative of our actions to rescue them. Same for the Philippines - the college kids always saw us as occupiers not liberators.

JD also makes a great point about traveling being a great education and I agree. I lived in my first foreign country when I was 18 years old in 1974. Lived in and traveled through many different countries and it was eye opening to say the least...

Default You aren't alone.....

Hey man I know exactly how you feel. I am too 17 and it is very difficult to sit by and watch as friends and others (those you would rather think of as enemies) dress down our country and don't appriciate what we have. As someone said earlier it is nearly impossible to convince an ignorant being of how they are wrong because they must have some semblence of common sence in the first place! I almost get into physical confrontations with ignorant @ss holes who are just regurgitating what their teachers, parents, and news media spoon feed them. It is hard for them to think of any other arguement that is not an emotional feeling but logic. I have had some deep (for our age any way) conversations with a few of my friends and find that they feel the same way too, however because of what seems to be the majority of people are always saying the opposite they are afraid to speak out. I have not had this problem until recently most likely because of my homeschooling, but I now have the confidence to at least negate the comments of the bashers because of what I have learned myself through studying history and the facts. The loud minority silences the quiet majority. From my experiences you will never convince someone they are wrong, they have to come to that conclusion themselves. So don't try so hard to show them they are wrong. They will just get defensive. I know you want to know the facts so you can fight back with the truth. Just know there are other out there such as you and me my friend. Indeed our generations may well be called the bitchers.....but I have never been a conformist

To bad all of the smart Koreans are gonna pass away here in thirty years or less.

Wait, what happened with the Philippines? My dad was stationed there for a bit, but I never knew there was conflict there outside of WW2.

You can look at just about any country that has (or had) US military bases and you'll see the college students protesting. I lived there from 1976 thru 1980 and it was common to see the college idiots protesting us as occupiers.

For you young folks - a stint in the military won't hurt you and you'll grow up quick...
