President Lee Myung-bak = bad guys from “Avatar”

Filed under: Uncategorized — extrakorea @ 4:54 am

The Hankyoreh brings us this political cartoon:

Robo Lee destroys S.Korean society

The Navi, representing the South Korean people, attempt to protect the Tree of Souls representing “an economy for the common people and freedom of press.” President Lee Myung-bak, however, rides in a mechanical destroyer on which the slogan reads “The second anniversary of Lee’s inauguration,” and finally destroys the tree.

Leaving the Navi with stricken expressions on their faces, President Lee says, “Now, we will ban your nighttime outdoor assemblies, too!”

I’m not a huge fan of Lee, but his political opponents would have more credibility with me if they didn’t turn the National Assembly into the Royal Rumble and didn’t engineer protests that caused 3.75 trillion won worth of damage.
