It doesn’t look like these protestors are going to give up quietly over US beef imports to Korea.

This is an awesome pic courtesy of the Choson Ilbo of a demonstration that took place on Sunday in Seoul.

Personally, I think these protests smack of anti-Americanism plain and simple. Nothing else is going on in Korea this summer and with a lousy exchange rate (curtailing overseas summer vacations), and higher fuel prices these protests are a good way to vent. Of course, who wants to protest against a lousy exchange rate and high fuel prices? It’s much easier to blame all of Korea’s ills on US beef.

Where’s the beef?

That’s what I would like to know.
