Military deception on Jeju Island



South Korean navy on Jeju Island throw trash around at Gangjeong village, in order to later film themselves as responsible community partners cleaning up litter.



This is about the most cynical and reprehensible thing I've ever watched.  If the leaders of South Korea had any sense of justice at all they'd fire the commander of the navy base and shut it down.

The people of Gangjeong village have been non-violently protesting this base (and the destruction of their 500-year old fishing and farming community) for more than 4,250 straight days.

This base (really for American warships and the Pentagon's effort to control China) was built on a lie from the beginning and obviously is being maintained by the same strategy - selling a pack of lies.

This is shameful.
