I'm hoping to read something positive; as I know how depressive things get in South Korea.

I don't think you'll find much positive in there, that 2nd photo is from the beach, where the barb wire is to prevent people from taking a dip and try to escape

what the ****
Chinese county massacres 50,000 dogs

Dogs being walked were taken from their owners and beaten on the spot, the newspaper said. Other killing teams entered villages at night, creating noise to get dogs barking, then honing in and beating them to death.

are these people retarded ?

it's a matter of priorities. either spent a shitload of money on prevention & animal care to prevent disease like rabies to run rampant (while the country can obviously use the money for something more important), or kill the lot of them & get it over with.

you have to remember that dogs are to chinese much like chickens are to us. they're considered food. as such, when there is an avian flu breakout in europe, we wipe out all poultry in the given area. the chinese did the same with dogs.

so what? how does that make them retarded, jmke? it would only mean we are retarded as well...

I like to see how you would react if the police stormed your house in the middle of the night and killed your dogs/cats/chickens/birds...

yes. please explain how that DOES NOT VIOLATE your privacy

telling me I should not call their regime retarded because they're "supposedly" poor is not the reason why I call them retarded. it's their lack of respect towards their citizens

I'm quite sure they don't do this in the middle of the night, without the farmer knowning this...
