Really charming that the official story is that the assassination was the result of internecine Unification Church squabbling. Adds a touch of whimsy to geopolitics that's been sorely lacking in recent years
#13
it's entirely believable to me that the underlying politics are confused factional contretemps between Red-baiting liberals and entirely guaranteed that they would never be reported in that language
#14
in contrast, imagine the frantic Red-ology "explainers" if some disgruntled kid of a former member of Mao Zedong Communist Party of China had shot Hu Jintao, then told the police he thought the guy was a secret supporter
#15
if you want your kid to grow up to lead a country and then die of a gunshot wound, a fair first step might be to name them "abe"
