    I had seen this photo before. Sec. Rumsfeld had it in his Pentagon office and talked a little bit about it during a FoxNews interview. It's worthy of looking at and contemplating the reality of it.

    This is a picture taken from a defense satellite of the Korean Peninsula at night. While South Korea is ablaze in light, North Korea is dark.

    Such a disparity is no surprise...North Korea is still mostly an agricultural society, while their South Korean counterparts enjoy some of todays newest and trendiest technological advances. I blame the leadership of North Korea...they practically starve their people and spend everything on weaponry. North Korea has a long way before it can become an economically stable nation...and in order to do that we have to do something about that dictator of theirs. Whats the point of having the best military technology, when the rest of your nations is "backwards?"

    Sometimes it's more of a "near-starvation experience" . "I saw a bright light at the end of a tunnel. There was a burger king combo #2 king size with cheese and a diet coke there too!"

    If you know Waegwon, you HAVE to know the 'ville' out the back gate at Camp Carroll... :) I was the Admin NCO for the 57th MP Company, and lived outside the gate, across from Key's place, above a barber shop.
