    Default South Korean farmers are freedom haters

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Tens of thousands of South Korean farmers and workers clashed with riot police Sunday at a massive rally against a free trade agreement with the United States.
    Some protesters fought with riot police wearing helmets and shields, attacking them with the sticks, throwing stones and trying to turn over police buses set up to block the protest site in central Seoul. Police fired water cannons at the protesters and sprayed fire extinguishers.

    warning: spin alert!

    I can't believe those greedy South Korean farm corporations want to control the price of their crops and monopolize the food production for an entire nation.

    They sound like a bunch of Republicans to me.

    Dick Cheney probably owns stock in John Deere’s South Korean division!

    I’d don’t think I’ll buy any LG, Samsung or Hyundai products ever again.

    Did the article say anything about South Korean corporations, or are you introducing a new element to the issue (presumably based on knowledge you've drawn from elsewhere)?

    Are you mocking the farmers and their concerns? If so, why?

    Does anyone see a relationship between this story and the concern over products coming from China?

    Since when was "knowledge" a criteria for posting?

    He just likes to post something he thinks is bizzare and then observe everyone's comments.
