THIS IS A HUGE LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND ME IN KOREA. AS USUAL, ALLOT OF IT, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE.
Former USFK Commander Denies US Involvement in Gwangu Uprising
In an email to CJ Entertainment, retired General John A. Wickham, the USFK commander at the time of the Gwangju Uprising of May 1980, denied US involvement in the bloody suppression of that uprising. [Kyunghyang Shinmun, Korean]
The email was in response to a request made to him by CJ Entertainment to explain the US role in the Gwangju Uprising. CJ Entertainment is preparing for the release of its film “May 18” next month (see Twitch post on the movie here).
Wickham said the New Military Group — the young military coup leaders led by soon-to-be dictator/president Chun Doo-hwan — did not tell the United States it was sending paratroopers to Gwangju. He said both he and then-US Ambassador William Gleysteen (since deceased) were shocked when they first learned that military operations were underway to put down the protests, and immediately issued protests to high-ranking ROK military officials.
He did acknowledge, however, that Seoul required approval from US-led Combined Forces Command to carry out operations with the ROK 20th Infantry Division, which was deployed to Gwangju to retake the city after the brutal paratrooper crackdown turned the pro-democracy protests into a full-fledged urban uprising. Wickham explained that the Korean defense minister, requesting temporary operation command of the 20th Infantry Division, said the unit was well-trained to put down riots and that it would be better to use the division — rather than the paratroopers — to retake the city.
Wickham said the tragic incident in Gwangju was something Korean authorities would have to deal with. It was, he said, essentially a domestic Korean matter.
Well, it was nice of CJ Entertainment to at least take the time to ask.
AND SOME OF THE COMMENTS LEFT ON THIS ARTICLE..............................
Prior to Kwangju uprising,
1. Nearly all known Commie sympathizers have gathered at Kwangju.
2. Kim DaeJung is known to have directed the whole uprising.
During Kwanju uprising,
1. No other cities have joined Kwangju. Not even nearby Jolla cities. This madness (or Commie plot) was confined to Kwangju and Commies gathered there.
2. These “freedom fighters” tried desperately to contact North Korea. More about these will come out in next administration.
After Kwangju uprising,
1. Chun DoHwan was voted in as the president of the Republic of Korea. Even though people hated his “evil” deeds, people realized the Kwangju Commies were even more dangerous. Without Kwangju, people might have denounced Chun, but after Kwanju there was no other choice but Chun to bring peace in South Korea.
2. Kwanju uprising only heightened the fear among SK population and highlighted the need for strong(=military) leadership.
Under last two administrations,
1. Lies about Kwangju has spread under the administrations direct involvement and/or indirect support.
2. The Communists’ involvement in Kwangju uprising was intentionally deleted.
3. Kwangju uprising was renamed “Kwangju Democracy Movement”.
In next administration (if the real patriots take control),
1. Real facts about Kwangju uprising will come out including the actions taken by Commies.
2. Korean military actions will be judged and justified as the actions correct under the circumstance.
3. “Kwangju Democracy Movement” will be renamed as “Kwangju Communist Uprising”, which is the correct name.
When General Chun brought his troops from DMZ to Seoul to fight his own fellow soldiers and to grab power, initially the true patriots fought his troops.
However, it soon became apparent that fighting Chun would only give the advantage to NK and likely to start another war between SK and NK. At that point, all Korean patriots stopped fighting Chun. It was choosing less evil of the two.
All Korean people understood this decision. Except Kwangju Commies. They wanted to fight on and even give the country to NK Commies.
While I do not condone Gen. Chun and his lieutenant Noh, I hate these Kwanju Commies even more. They wanted to gain power at all cost. Even giving Kim IlSung to take SK by force.
General Chun turned out to be an OK person. He was not a dictator. He stepped down and gave a fair election after his five-year term. People voted his lieutenant, Noh, to continue Chun’s policy.
When his term was ending, Noh, gave power to non-military leadership, president Kim YoungSam, who was voted in.
Korea was saved from a Commie uprising. Presidents were elected by majority votes.

Foreign ‘Beauty’ Claims Professor Offered to Trade Grades for Sex
NOW THIS SHOULD COME TO NO SURPRISE, TO ANYONE WHO HAD READ MY BLOG. EVERY FEW MONTHS I FIND ARTICLES ABOUT THIS HAPPENING HERE IN KOREA, AND ONCE AGAIN THE TEACHERS UNION DOES NOTHING!!!!!!!
And from the Ministry of Complete Tabloid Crap, we have this tale — the Ilgan Sports reports that on Sunday’s episode of KBS’s talk show “The Beauties’ Chatterbox,” Japanese college student Sagawa Junko caused a stir by claiming that one of her Korean university professors offered to give her a good grade in return for sex.
During the episode, in which the ladies were discussing incidents of sexual harassment they’d experienced in Korea, Junko said that in her freshman year, she’d missed several classes in one of her courses. She then received a call from the professor of the class, who told her that Japanese women are better in the sack then Korean women, and that if she slept with him, he wouldn’t penalize her for her missed classes. Or so she claimed.
Viewers were shocked.
She followed up her admission by claiming that said professor had propositioned other foreign students from Asia, including another Japanese student, in a similar fashion.
According to the Ilgan Sports, netizens flooded the bulletin board of her Korean university with angry posts, although a few apparently objected to Junko making such a confession on TV. The PD of the show, however, defended the program’s decision to air the admission. For what it’s worth, I could see how it might have been a difficult call — that’s the kind of accusation that can destroy a person’s life.
Meanwhile, in a secret poll taken of the 16 foreign women who appeared on Sunday’s show, 12 said they’d been sexually harassed in Korea.
In an exclusive interview with the Ilgan Sports, Junko said she has no regrets about making her admission on TV, and said her school was investigating the professor in question.
Interestingly enough, another girl who appears on the show, Chinese student Shang Fang, told the Ilgan Sports in a telephone interview that she’d been harassed by the same professor.
Not that we’re looking for intellectually enriching content from any of this, but if you read Korean, the Ilgan Sports’ Song Won-seop actually made the effort to turn this incident into a fairly thoughtful column.
UPDATE: Junko’s school told Star News that the accused individual was not a professor, but a lecturer teaching at the university’s language school on a temporary basis.
UPDATE 2: Star News also notes that Sunday’s program has become a “hot potato” in Netizenland. Some felt ashamed about the girls’ experiences, while at least one noted that the show itself amounts to sexual harassment.
UPDATE 3: The Chosun Ilbo reports that the instructor at Junko’s school — the Korean language institute of Hanguk University of Foreign Studies — has turned in his resignation. The school also noted, however, that Junko said the instructor approached her about grades, but the Korean language institute doesn’t give grades, so her story wasn’t entirely convincing, either.
WOW BIG FRACKING SURPRISE! I HAVE HAD SOME DEALINGS WITH THIS PLACE IN THE PAST. TO SAY THAT I AM NOT SURPRISED WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
NOW FOR A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT THE ABOVE ARTICLE...............................
I worked at 외대 and my students tell me all the time how common this is amongst certain teachers, and there’s even one professor there that several students separately told me about (we talked about the issue of sexual harassment during a lecture) is well-known for saying that he gives A’s to any girl who continues to wear short skirts – and actually, a lot of girls come in wearing short skirts in that that class.
People apparently think he’s a “colorful” professor. Real funny guy.
This sort of behavior is so common and accepted that such public displays of sexual harassment are 1) either not reported, or 2) not taken seriously.
And as for the expectation of putting out for a grade, I was clearly propositioned by a STUDENT who never came to class and suddenly showed up wanting an A. It apparently worked for her a lot, and she was pretty distressed when I failed her ass.
“Oh, but I won’t graduate and I won’t get a job!”
Perhaps coming to class once, or even twice? She was one of the people I thought dropped the class after never having showed up. I didn’t even know what she looked like. Then she shows up after the final exam is over, the class is over, everything is over – and tells a sob story so transparent…
“Can’t we discuss this later? Just tell me where to go – I’ll do anything to pass.”
While rubbing my arm, even though we were meeting in the main dining hall. In a short skirt.
Hey, I’m a dirty bird, but not that dirty. Some lines aren’t meant to be crossed and one maintain one’s self-respect.
So, when each semester – yes, one or two of such girls I’ve never seen before in my life show up – I just refuse to meet them (what is there to discuss besides things you don’t want to even put yourself in the position to be tempted to do?) and tell them that since they’ve done nothing, I clearly have no choice, and that if there are extenuating circumstances, to take this up with the Student Affairs office.
Trust me – I get the impression they aren’t turned down too often.
If at all. BY METROPOLITICIAN
Thanks for the information, dot-squiggle-asterisk.
Like Metro, I am a former university lecturer and heard many rumors from both students and staff of sexual harassment and consensual sex for favors. A former supervising professor was reputed to have threatened three female graduate assistants with failure on their PhD thesis if they did not have sex with him. They all went crying to the lone woman professor in the department, who was powerless to help. Korean universities truly are old boys’ clubs. Even decent male professors who may be personally outraged by sexual harassment allegations will join in circling the wagons to protect the university’s reputation.
Several years ago, some students from university X filed a suit against the university demanding an accounting of the student activity fee collected every semester. The judge, a graduate of the university, ruled against the students, who were subsequently expelled. BY SONAGI
Kids know nothing about Korean War: Korea Times
OK, I KNOW, ONCE AGAIN, A REAL BIG FRACKING SURPRISE HERE!
I AM NOT SURE IF I HAVE TOLD THIS STORY BUT I WILL TELL IT NOW. I HAVE HAD WLI CONVERSATION CLASS IN THE PAST AND IN ONE OF THESE CLASSES THE STUDENTS ASKED ME WHAT I KNEW ABOUT Japanese invasions of Korea (1592-1598) I THEN WENT ON A SMALL 10 MINUTE HISTORY LESSON OF THE MAJOR BATTLES AND WHY KOREA WON AND JAPAN LOST THE WAR. THE REACTION WAS VERY STRANGE, TO THIS DAY I STILL DO NOT KNOW IF IT WAS OVER THAT I ACTUALLY KNEW WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT OR WAS THE CLASS SHOCKED THAT I ACTUALLY KNEW KOREA HISTORY. NOW BEING HERE A FEW YEARS I HAVE HEARD ALLOT OF THE ANTI-USA BS. NOW READ THIS......
On the 57th anniversary of the start of the Korean War, the Korea Times reports that fewer and fewer youngsters know anything about the war. One in five, in fact, believe the war was fought between Korea and Japan.
Meanwhile, words of wisdom from the KTU:
“In the past, many focused on teaching children to hate North Koreans and their ideology. The most effective tool was the Korean War, where they were told brutal and inhumane stories,” said Park Tae-dong of the Korean Teacher’s and Education Workers’ Union.
If unification is what we all are aiming for, education should focus on harmonizing and understanding each other rather than to hate each other and call names, he said.
Right… because all that hate should be reserved for the United States, Grand National Party and Chosun Ilbo. And as far as the Korean War is concerned, I guess it would be better to instead teach the kiddies about Nogeun-ni and party with former communist partisans.
UPDATE: The Chosun Ilbo (English) has more:
There were also changes in the historical view of the Korean War. In December 2002, more opted for “a proxy war of the U.S. and the Soviet Union” (44.5 percent) than “an illegal invasion by North Korea” (31.2 percent). In the latest poll, more than a half opted for an illegal invasion by North Korea (52.3 percent), followed by a proxy war (35.7 percent). Among college students, the view that the war was an invasion increased sharply from 17.7 percent to 41.7 percent, while those seeing it as a proxy war declined from 67.2 percent to 54.7 percent.
Read the rest on your own.
NOW FOR SOME OF THE COMMENTS...........
“Right… because all that hate should be reserved for the United States, Grand National Party and Chosun Ilbo.”
Robert, this is not what is really happening in South Korea. Some people could have been upset about “apparent” anti-U.S. sentiment in the country, but it was a temporary event and a reaction to certain foreign policy and the SOFA, I would say. Although the Chosun Ilbo sometimes makes valid points, using their “frequently” problematic reports and opinions (not the above one) may hurt your reasoning. BY
Snow, I joined this blog a few weeks ago so that I do not know which articles and topics have been discussed here. South Koreans fight against each other always. When they fight, they usually use very extreme words. I don’t think they would spare such expressions when their interests contradict those of the U.S.
If I can say about some of what South Koreans have in their minds: There are a couple of countries in the world that the majority of South Koreans do NOT fully trust. The U.S. is not one of them. Whatever you might have heard, their average sense of alliance with the U.S. is really deep. I’m neither pro-American nor anti-American. This is simply the fact.
Although a couple of conservative South Korean newspapers have attempted to label Roh as an anti-Amarican, even Roh is not an exception. Roh decided to send troops to Iraq despite strong resistance of the congressmen of his party and his followers. The report of Hans Blix had been known in South Korea, and people there knew there had been no known WMD. Roh’s reasoning was that the U.S. was the strongest alliance of South Korea, and that to help the U.S. was good for South Korea. A Korean-American lawyer/economist, who had worked (not in the FTA team) with some of those including Kim Hyung-Chong in the South Korean FTA representatives, told me that one of the assumption of the South Korean team was that South Korea should go with the U.S. competing with their neighbor countries, and that various systems of the U.S. are better than those of South Korea (the lawyer/economist does not agree to the latter personally).
(Let me add this: In 2002, there were numerous candle protests. Roh had not attended in any one of them. He actually asked people to calm down. On the other hand, Lee Hoe-Chang, the opposite candidate of Hannara, joined a protest in December. Lee demanded apologies from the U.S. government several times in his presidential campaign.)
About anti-FTA demonstrations: It is obvious that the agriculture industry is likely to be wiped out. Although the agriculture industry in South Korea is very small and weak, the industry has a symbolic meaning for South Koreans. On the other hand, the impact of the EU FTA is not known yet. More importantly, the sense of impact by the U.S. much bigger for South Koreans than one by the EU almost in any situation.
BY FRENCH QUARTER...........................
The Chosun Ilbo (English version) also has a short but interesting interview with General Paik Sun-yup (Ret.) on the need to remember the Korean War.

A couple of papers? A lot more than that, I’m afraid. Roh rode the anti-American wave to office and has undeniably been a useful idiot/wedge for use by North Korea since. Roh talked the talk concerning USFK and alliance, but his actual policy decisions tell the true story and to not mesh with rhetoric of being allies. The decision to send Koreans to Iraq was done with much hand wringing and was in no way a sincere gesture of support; his administration made it clear that they felt they had not choice but to do so, and were not happy about it.
It’s Roh’s and South Korea’s prerogative to be that way, but let’s be real and call a spade a spade.
On Blix I think you grossly oversimplify;
U.S. government analysts were not alone in these views. In the late spring of 2002 I participated in a Washington meeting about Iraqi WMD. Those present included nearly twenty former inspectors from the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), the force established in 1991 to oversee the elimination of WMD in Iraq. One of the senior people put a question to the group: Did anyone in the room doubt that Iraq was currently operating a secret centrifuge plant? No one did. Three people added that they believed Iraq was also operating a secret calutron plant (a facility for separating uranium isotopes).
Other nations’ intelligence services were similarly aligned with U.S. views. Somewhat remarkably, given how adamantly Germany would oppose the war, the German Federal Intelligence Service held the bleakest view of all, arguing that Iraq might be able to build a nuclear weapon within three years. Israel, Russia, Britain, China, and even France held positions similar to that of the United States; France’s President Jacques Chirac told Time magazine last February, “There is a problem—the probable possession of weapons of mass destruction by an uncontrollable country, Iraq. The international community is right … in having decided Iraq should be disarmed.” In sum, no one doubted that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. (emphasis added)
I’m not trying to hi-jack this into a pre-war intel debate, the quote is only to counter the bit of revisionism concerning what was known, esp by Korea. BY RICHARDSON
You mean you’ve been following Roh since back around the days in which he was petitioning for the withdrawal of US troops? You mean the period in which he built up his anti-US credentials to the point he was the natural candidate to win over the Korean voters during their frantic, patrioticism-boosting frency in 2002 —- built up his credentials to such a solid footing in the masses that he didn’t have to take part in the massive street demonstrations like his opponent, Mr. Bamboo, felt the need to.
I started using the term “anti-US” to help avoid getting sucked into these “see, no white people being lynched in the street…..no beheadings…..They are clearly not anti-American” debates.
See. Most South Koreans don’t want US troops to leave.
Nope. No anti-Americanism here. All is well. All is well.
See. It’s Bushie’s fault. All will be well after the election.
If it isn’t —-
See. The US did this. And then that. And then there was Bushie…..Whatever the case, nobody is stringing up Americans in the street. All is well.
Why not just stick to the justification angle? You (the generic you) can do so without the Bushie canard too.
There’s no true anti-US sentiment in Korea.
A little tracking after 운동권, you’ll conclude so.
임수경, 권인숙, 김민석, 임종석, etc.
They just pretended/pretend to be anti-American to get the power.
The gist is power; anti-American sentiment is not important.
I agree down to the “not important” part.
What term can we use besides “anti-American”?
How about patriotic whore-monger?
That would explain why South Korean society as a whole likes to bend the US in Korea over and ream it in the —explitive self-deleted— while keeping it handy at the same time.
I didn’t need thousands of editorials to get that.
I got it between 1996-2000 teaching Korean adults…. BY USINKOREA.
NOW FOR THIS, ITS JUST TOO FUNNY.....................
Kim Jong-il’s approval rating drops to 120%
NOW HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
It seems like the controversy over U.S. beef being admitted (or not) back into South Korea will never end…not too long ago, four cases of beef (totalling 287 pounds) that were meant for domestic consumption in the U.S. were found in a larger shipment to South Korea and Tyson Foods, the original company that processed the meat, was banned by South Korean authorities. I’m usually not a conspiracy theorist, but I did find this pretty interesting [emphasis is mine]:
A spokesman for Springdale, Ark.-based Tyson, Gary Mickelson, said that, “contrary to South Korean news reports, Tyson Foods did not ship the beef in question.” “We produced it for domestic sale and consumption,” he said Tuesday. “The product was sold by Tyson Foods to a Minnesota company, which resold the product to Iowa-based Midamar Corp. “Midamar mistakenly exported the beef to South Korea several weeks ago without our knowledge, involvement or permission,” he said. “We’re once again working through USDA in hopes of quickly resolving this problem.” Mickelson would not say which two plants were involved. The company has several facilities in Nebraska. A spokesman for Midamar Corp. of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, said his company did not send the four boxes to South Korea. Darrin O’Brien, who works in export sales for Midamar, said they were sent to a South Korean company in California, which he said he would not identify. He also said he didn’t know what that company had done with the samples.
Make of that what you will. (Hat tip to GI Korea)
AND I AM SUPPOSED TO BE SURPRISED BECAUSE WHY?
I was watching KBS1 last night and they had did an uncover report on how cab drivers in Seoul particularly at Incheon Airport were overcharging foreigners. The cab drivers had found techniques to rig their meters so that when a foreigner takes a cab they would hit a button that would speed up the meter to charge the foreigner more than a Korean customer who would better know how much the cab fare from the airport should cost.
KBS pointed out that a cab fare from the airport into Seoul should cost about 48,500 won while the cab driver they did the uncover report on cost 67,500 won. A cab fare that is 19,000 won more expensive converts to about $20 US dollars more in expense for foreigners. The report also had interviews with foreigners in Seoul who told other stories of how the cab drivers try to rip them off.
I have never taken a taxi from the airport, I always use the airport bus or the subway train that is now available as well. So I can’t really add any personal experiences about the airport taxi drivers, but the fact that they are ripping off foreigners does not surprise me. Also with Seoul taxi drivers I have never had any problems with as well. I’m sure there are crooked cab drivers there, but personally I have had no problems which I think suggests that only a really small minority are crooked.
The only places I have had regular issues with taxi drivers are in Uijongbu and Dongducheon where they love to play the game of not running the meter and than charging GIs an overpriced fare at the end of the ride. A tactic I used to combat this is to simply not pay the cab driver. If he doesn’t run the meter it is a free ride. The cab drivers scream and yell and one time a cab driver tried to get the police stationed in front of Camp Red Cloud to arrest me. I simply showed the policemen the meter which had zero on it and the policemen had no issues and let me go into the camp.
I even had one cab driver stop in the middle of the ride and stop the meter and then try to negotiate an overpriced fair with me and my buddy. If we didn’t agree we would have to get out of the cab in an area where he knew we would have to walk a long ways to find another cab. I just simply started writing down his information from the panel in the taxi. He asked me what I was doing and I told him I was going to contact his taxi company as well as file a complaint with the local authorities. The taxi driver started the meter again really quick and got us to our destination in no time.
The cab drivers in Uijongbu and Dongducheon is something I wish KBS or someone in the Korean media would do an expose on because they regularly screw over soldiers and really portray a bad image of Korea to the soldiers serving in the 2nd Infantry Division.
The news media had the undercover footage of the cab ride and they had another cab following the cab in question that had the meter running at the actual rate. Then they had interviews with foreigners that had been ripped off. It was a legit report.
Like I said before I have never taken a cab from the airport so I can’t personally attest to it, but I have related my experiences with Uijongbu and Dongducheon cab drivers which makes such behavior by cab drivers from the airport quite likely.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
There is probably no better way to muddy Japanese accusations that North Korea kidnapped numerous Japanese citizens than to produce a counter accusation that can’t be proved, which is far more proactive than mere denial.
The sad truth here is that a woman defected to Japan but was almost certainly faced with the prospect of having her family tortured and killed if she did not return to North Korea to be their counter example. If she ever re-defects, she’s also on record talking about mental stress and drug and alcohol abuse, which North Korea would use to discredit her statements:
In a bizarre public relations foray, North Korea on Tuesday paraded a woman who had allegedly been kidnapped and taken to Japan but returned home after she went half-mad with longing for her children.
The woman, identified as 57-year-old To Chu-Ji, appeared at a press conference in North Korea’s Beijing embassy, attended by dozens of reporters who mostly had expected the briefing to deal with the nation’s nuclear programme.
“I’m a citizen of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, who was forcefully abducted to Japan,” To said, referring to North Korea by its official name.
In October 2003, she was “cheated by some bad people and crossed the Tumen river unintentionally” from North Korea into China, said To, a slight, bespectacled woman with her hair tied in a knot at the back of her head.
She was taken to the Japanese consulate general in the northeast Chinese city of Shenyang, where she spent two weeks before heading for Japan, she said.
A similar route is believed to have been taken by hundreds, perhaps thousands, of North Koreans in recent years, feeling starvation and oppression at home.
[. . .]
From November 2003 until June this year, To lived in the Japanese city of Matsudo, but became “almost crazy with longing” for her five children, she said.
“Whenever I exchanged letters and telephone calls with my children, it started and ended with tears. When I was in my room alone I made my pillow wet with tears from longing for my children,” she said.
“I spent almost every night with sleeping drugs and alcohol, almost like a hypochondriac and psychopath.”
She finally decided to go home after she was informed that her second son-in-law had served in the army and gone to Communist Party school.
There were no explanations for how To left Japan unhindered or how she contacted relatives by mail and phone while supposedly being held captive, giving rise to suspicions she was a refugee.
To said she had been born in Japan, apparently to ethnic Korean parents, but moved back to North Korea in 1960.
[. . .]
To finished the press conference by singing a traditional North Korean song in a trembling voice, flanked by unsmiling officials.
LIKE I HAVE SAID THERE ARE A FEW OF THE THINGS GOING ON AROUND ME AT THE MOMENT....
Now for some personal items, I have now been at Woosong University for 1 year. I like it here and hope to stay for many more. Hopefully, soon, I can get a better apartment.
Next week I am on a one week vacation, to be honest, I really do not have any major plains, just sit at home. sleep, clean up the pace and relax.
I now have 6 weeks of Vacation and I will probably take that in the winter. Maybe to New Zealand, we shall see.
i have still been going to the baseball games, a few eeks ago I was teaching baseball to some people that I had met from Germany. It was a nice game to watch.
The summer schedule, is not that bad so it looks like it will be a nice one here.
i am still not sure about the bus situation that happened a few weeks ago here in Daejeon. Looks like nothing is being done. Sad, its really sad.
I have been trying too get all of the Christmas ordering done very early this year and I have a few people left and that will be it. I know its way too early but I'd rather get er done now so, in case any late surprises hit, I will be ready for it.
We finally have new computers at work and they are making it easier to get software working, hope these hold up for awhile.
I am still doing the movie reviews for Pusan and Socius, I will submit my first one for Twitch, this weekend. It looks like HP 5 in Imax next month and in a few months, the PUSAN FILM Festival once again.
Wel thas it for now, its a long read but a good one......
