Pence displays U.S. arrogance at Olympics



Many years ago I went to an international peace conference in Athens, Greece.  I met a Greek journalist who told me the story behind the founding of the Olympics.

At that time Greece was full of city-states which were all walled off from one other in a constant state of war.  So they came up with the idea of the Olympics and each year which ever city-state won the most athletic events had to return home and tear down their walls.  It was created as a disarmament policy.

Pence and Trump are violating the spirit of the Olympics by using the event to justify more military weapon walls on the Korean peninsula.

The Korean people are obviously trying to create peace and remove the divisions amongst their peoples that the US has played a huge role in creating.

Leave the Korean people alone and let them have unity and peace!

"we, our, us" are called the editorial pronouns but more, the Royal. This is the way Kings and Emperors and other hereditary dictators talk.
