n article titled "Insight into truth about foul 'art of self-protection' peculiar to bete noire Park Geun Hye."
Hunger strike, writing in blood, hair-cut and candlelight
demonstrations have been staged in south Korea by people of political,
academic, social, financial and other circles to protest against the
deployment of THAAD. Under this situation Park Geun Hye set out on
foreign junkets after she gave an instruction to "put a stop to
unnecessary controversy over THAAD deployment at once."
She has so far made foreign trips 24 times to escape public criticism and maintain her office, detested by the world people.
So, it is needed to dig up the truth of Park's foul "art of
self-protection" that serves as a means of existence peculiar to her.
The first expression of such peculiar "art" can be found in her runaway trip whenever she faced ruling crisis.
It was well evidenced by the fact that she flew overseas at night in
2013 when a case of the Intelligence Service's involvement in the
"presidential" elections was disclosed to endanger her hard-won
When the worst ferry Sewol disaster occurred, burying many school
boys and girls at sea, Park hastily ran away from south Korea for fear
of the people's growing protest against her total indifference, instead
of taking even elementary rescue measure. It is also the wicked hostess
of Chongwadae that made a foreign trip, making such invectives as
rubbing salt into the wounds of the bereaved families who were worried
about bodies of their children, unable to retrieve even bodies in one
Park also fled to Canada in September of 2014 when she was deluged
with a flurry of criticism over the "case of beating a soldier to death"
that happened in the puppet army contaminated by the mammonism-based
jungle law and Yankee-style misanthropy. In April of 2015 when the south
Korean people were infuriated over the "case of Song Wan Jong's
suicide" related to the scandals of Chongwadae, she sneaked into Kimpho
Airport after urging a "strict investigation".
In October and November of 2015 when the situation of south Korea
turned unfavorable to her "yusin" dictatorship and the "introduction of
state-compiled textbooks" aimed at confrontation with fellow countrymen
in the north, she set out on a overseas tour allegedly to attend an
international meeting and toured several countries for 12 days in a bid
to escape an anti-"government" protest involving hundreds of thousands
It is by no means accidental that she took the flight for a foreign
tour the next day after the site for the deployment of THAAD was
Her "self-protective" attitude can be found in evading her
responsibilities for all sorts of social irregularities in south Korea.
Since she came to power, various power-backed scandals have occurred
but each time she cunningly dodged her responsibilities for them. She
would, at first, make a great fuss, crying out for "strict investigation
and harsh punishment" like a thief crying "Stop the thief!" but shelved
the matter or imposed penalties on a few subordinates after some time
passed and public criticism subsided.
As far as the ferry Sewol disaster is concerned, Park accused the
Maritime Police Agency of neglecting its mission and the Ministry of
Security and Administration of failing to play its role and yelled at
the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries to take full responsibility for the
disaster but, in the end, passed the buck to others, saying that the
captain, crewmen and the shipping company should be held accountable for
She was brazen-faced even when the truth was open to public that the
puppet authorities were responsible for the disaster as the ferry was
overloaded with the building materials for a naval base on Jeju Island,
the main cause of the disaster.
Then, what is lurking behind the evasion of responsibility, one of her "art of self-protection"?
It is none other than the mode of existence of a "yusin" dictator
who mercilessly victimized her closest aides to prolong her despicable
Her "self-protective" attitude can also be found in her frantic
confrontation with the fellow countrymen she resorts to whenever she
faces ruling crises.
As she had an unusual experience of reversing the unfavorable
situation by raising clamor about "followers of the north" as a heart
stimulant in the run-up to the "presidential" elections in 2012, she
accustomed herself to use the method every time she found herself in a
It is quite natural that the public pays attention to the fact that
all rumors about "the north's deeds" during her past three and half
years' office came up whenever her ruling crisis reached an extreme
Then, why does she get so frantic with the confrontation with the
compatriots, putting even the successive rulers into the shade?
It is because plot-breeding, slander, hostility and confrontation
targeting the fellow countrymen are the best "art of self-protection"
that ensures her stay in power.
Her dirty "art of self-protection," characterized by habitual
runaway trips, shameless evasion of responsibility and heinous
confrontation with the fellow countrymen, is a legacy of "yusin" shaped
by the former dictator who met a miserable death.
Due to her "art of self-protection" aimed at prolonging her
remaining days, south Korea plunges deeper into a colony of the U.S. and
a tundra of human rights and a theatre of immorality and evils.
Her "art of self-protection" can no longer work on anybody.
Time will prove what a miserable end she will meet. -
