No, they're actually not married. They came to Korea to study. Prostitutes that service American GIs in Korea are mostly brought in from slavic countries.

If you put "Faith" in your name, is this your "Christian" faith that you are promoting?

I'm pretty sure the E. European sex trade is popular in Korea among elderly Korean men. Most of the G.I.s actually date and marry Korean women who, most of the time, are not hookers.

My grandparents suffered the atrocites of Adolf Hitler. 6 Million Jews were slaughtered by the Germans. The Japanese did not suffer as much as the Jews who were rounded in concentration camps and turned to soap and lampshades. Japanese suffrage is a myth.

This is an irresponsible comment. No-one ever suggested that Japanese-American or Japanese-Canadian internment was anywhere as horrible as the Nazi Holocaust. It was a milder, watered-down version of it. But your claim that their suffering was "a myth" is itself a watered-down version of HOLOCAUST DENIAL. Shame on you!

No they weren't, America was at war....a war started by the sneaky Japanese. It was a precautionary measure to safeguard America's national security.

German Americans and Austrian Americans weren't rounded up and had their land taken away and sold for cheap.

Anyways, Japan and US are allies now. Things change and countries evolve. This is why we don't use steam trains and bayonets anymore.

Okay, anyways. Clearly you are a foreigner who was not educated in the US, or took the US citizenship test. Damm canadians. We need to invade and pillage canada.

Many Nazis were allowed to immigrate to America and serve in the CIA. To teach Americans torture tactics, mind control, chemical weapons, etc.
American culture has many parallels to Nazi culture. Bush's Patriot Act.
Or WA's proposed law to allow police to "spot check" the homes of legal gun owners. Liberal state, liberal president, yep, gotta love the left.
Let me take you back a few decades to a lyric from a famous song by The Who. "Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss."

Quite frankly, seems BOTH parties have real issues with a free America. Oh, except when it comes to the Wall St. robber barons, then the fuckers are more than happy to remove laws to satisfy Wall Street's avarice.

Back to the topic, what the real crime was when the Japanese(and Germans and Italians and during WW1, the Ukranians) were taken from their homes and put in camps, their properties became forfeit.

Many, if not all, didn't have homes to go back to when the war was over, and THAT was just wrong.

Don't be silly. We don't do that kind of thing to white people.......

In the mid-1940s when Mel Luetchens was a boy on his family’s Murdock, Nebraska, farm where he still lives, he sometimes hung out with his father’s hired hands,“I looked forward to it,” he said.“They played games with us and brought us candy and gum.” The hearty young men who helped his father pick corn or put up hay or build livestock fences were German prisoners of war from a nearby camp.“They were the enemy, of course,” says Luetchens, now 70 ...
His family was of German ancestry and his father spoke fluent German.“Having a chance to be shoulder-to-shoulder with [the prisoners], you got to know them,” Luetchens said.“They were people like us.”

Of course the Jews had it worse. You won't let anybody forget about it for more than a minute.

I think that rounding up the Japanese and putting them in camps was an appropriate and humane measure. America should be deporting muslims to internment centers in the style of Manzanar.

We should be sending the men in white coats to intern you in a nut-house where you can enjoy sex with goats.
