Korean that jeers unhappiness of another country.

A powerful earthquake measuring a magnitude of 6.9 on the Richter scale hit the Hokuriku region of Japan at 9:42 a.m. on Sunday, March 25, killing one woman, injuring 190 people and setting off small tsunami.

After this earthquake, the following cartoons were published in the “The Kukmin Daily” newspaper of South Korea.

Japan, While the aftershock continues…

“A part of Comfort women’s parents sold their daughter… ”

Continuing thoughtless words.

“This bastard’s mouth is still alive.”

In your country, might the newspaper publish the cartoon that jeers the misfortune of another country?
It is not unusual in South Korea.

The Sumatra coast large earthquake occurred in December, 2004.  At that time, the following cartoon was recorded in “Chosun Ilbo” (news papaer,Seoul, South Korea)

Rescue supply that arrives from every country in the world.

“Oh? There should have been an airport around here…”

 “Turn. I hear that Sumatra moved by as much as 36 meters. “
