Beginning of Chapter 12: Sacrificial Lamb of the Cold War

"Americans are half-ape, half-human and have long thick hair all over their body, yes, even their women grow hair all over their body, just like female dogs. Their body order is unbelievably foul and make you sick. They have huge sex organs about the size of a bang-chi and copulate with anybody, men and women, including their own mother and kids. We should not let these animals in our town and defend Japan to death."

My First American Encounter

As the US 1st Marine Division moved to Hamhung from Wonsan and the ROK I Corps moved out on October 24, 1950, I saw US soldiers for the first time. One day I was playing in the street in front of my house when I spotted two strange looking figures coming over the hilltop. We stopped playing and watched the two strangers with some apprehension. We anticipated some sort of dramatic meeting. Well, to my disappointment, there were no uplifting words, no ruffles and flourishes. Apparently unaware of the peeping eyes focused upon them, those two pulled down their pants, squatted down and relieved themselves. Thus, my very first sight of the Americans was “earthy”.

Up to this moment, my knowledge of America was based on what the Japanese taught
