Developments in South Korea

From South Korean Foreign Minister Ditched in Policy Row:

    The "People's Participatory Government" is the slogan [South Korean President] Roh's team uses for its populist administration, which calls for more independence from Washington and closer ties to North Korea.

From U.S. Is Korea's Adversary?:

    A recent survey asked people which country they believes most threatens Korea's security. 33 percent named North Korea, and 39 percent named the United States. Among people in their twenties, 58 percent said the U.S. was the bigger threat, while only 20 percent cited the North. If we were to act upon the results of that survey, then the U.S. should be considered the Republic of Korea's main adversary, instead of North Korea.
