With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

THE HAMMER COMES DOWN



The South Korean Navy and Samsung brought the hammer down hard on the young people who non-violently attempted to block the moving of explosives that would be used to blast Gureombi.

You don't have to understand Korean to know that these kids were hurting but their courage shines through.

Every minute they delay the destruction of Gangjeong village they allow the rest of us around the world to catch up and build support.

Let's remember the bottom line here - save the environment from the world's worst polluter (the military) - save a 450 year old fishing and farming culture from being torn apart - stop the building of a Navy base that will be a spark for U.S. and Chinese military confrontation in the Asia-Pacific.

This fight belongs to all of us. It's a global issue and needs a global response.

We can all do something to help save Jeju.....start by boycotting Samsung.
