Progressive, Pro-Dialogue Moon Jae-in Likely Wins South Korea Election

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

South Korea appears to have elected progressive candidate Moon Jae-in as president, according to exit polls released Tuesday after voting ended.

The snap election came after former president Park Geun-hye was impeached over a corruption scandal. It was required to take place within 60 days of Park's ouster, which occurred in March.

Good news, but I believe I detect, ever so faintly, the stirrings of a "color revolution" against this apparently very reasonable man...

That culture is partially what brought down Park, South Korea's first female president. Park is currently in jail awaiting trial on 18 charges, including bribery, over allegations that she took money from billionaire Samsung scion Lee Jae-yong in an effort by Lee to facilitate a major business transaction. Lee was also arrested.

Hopefully we will be seeing similar actions here in the not too distant future.

Progressive, Pro-Dialogue Moon Jae-in ... sounds a little too radical ... the CIA may find it needs to "cure" this disease ...
