Comparative apologies

It's been interesing to see the difference between Koreans' response to the massacre at Virginia Tech and Muslim and Arab response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Korean-Americans, Korean citizens in America, and the Korean government didn't whine about discrimination, racism and bigotry. They didn't demand special protections. They didn't make excuses.

They apologized. Profusely and profoundly.

And of course, they didn't need to. The psycho kid at Virginia Tech didn't murder in the name of Korea. He wasn't trained to kill by Korean causes. The South Korean government doesn't crank out extremist propaganda that incites young men to murder. No Korean-American activist groups tacitly supported him.

Hey guys, saw Fourth World War last monday and I was just shocked... Eventhough I'm colombian, and I live here in Bogotá, my whole family is from Argentina, and they had to pass thru' all that Corralito shit... I was amazed by how you captured the different moments of the argentinian "spring". Anyway, I was wondering if you guys know something about the problems that happen here in my country... If you don't, drop me a line and I'll let you know, 'cause this is something you might like to know and critcize
