What was a statue of Kim doing in South Korea? Did they set one up as a prop to allude to the Baghdad scenario moving to North Korea?

Zactly - it's a cardboard cutout with a replaced head.

But didn't you guys know? The US staged the Saddam statute toppling. The military cleared out the area around the square and flew in Iraqi expatriates to form the crowd in the square. Really, I read it on some.website.ru....

russotto - that URL doesn't work for me. Could you post a working link?

well I don't know about Iraqis situation but I can tell you about this pic, since I'm a Korean too. this guys are from so-called `anti-nuke anti-kim citizenship', and by most Koreans they are considered McCarthyist kooks. they openly talk current pres (Mr. Roh) and previous pres (Mr. Kim Dae-Jung) are commies and there are commies everywhere. well duh.

Gaemon, thanks for the first hand insight. From what I've read in the USA, the NK people are starving and probably don't have the strength to protest anything. Of course that wouldn't be permitted anyway.
