Hey all, I'm a new member here.
Anyways In the 60's there was a man named Park Chung Hee. And he was considered one of the greatest presidents that us, the South Koreans ever had.
He is personally, what many koreans consider, is the man who has gotten us to where we are today. Anyways later that decade, he was assasinated by
someone within his cabinent. He is the say.. JFK of Korea. His death is very controversial, while the Public story is that he was assasinated by
someone who was angry with him on his cabinent. I have heard a wide deal of theories.
One is that He was assasinated by the CIA under the order of the Carter admistration. Makes some sense, back then, the S korean government wasn't
that powerful, and took orders from the US administration of the present time. both the US and the ROK were afraid of N korean attacks, since there
have been many attempts on PCH's life by teams of North Korean commandos sent in to assasinate him. (although it may seem like something from the
"bourne idenity" it actually is true)
Park Chung Hee was one of the first to try to control the government of S korea. He made S korea the way it was because.. he sent Our troops to
Vietnam, the US cut a deal with the S korean government, promising somewhat of 10 billion dollars of US taxpayer's money for us to send troops to
Vietnam. I'm sorry if this may give you a wrong impression of our country, but PCH said yes. He sent troops to vietnam, we got money, boosted or
economy, and our military might. Now After the latest attempt on his life, PCH orders the military for a commando unit to be trained on the island of
Shilmido (a few miles off the coast of S Korea) to kill Kim Sung Il himself and however, this is said that it pissed off the current US administration
at the time. They didnt want another Korean War, therfore ordered him to be killed..
this is the most believable one yet i have heard.
Others involve the KCIA, KGB, and hell even UFO's.
Any opinions or comments? I hope this was a good first post, and i hope i posted this in the right place.
