Chips bought at Incheon Int'l Airport, Korea. Do these chips have a picture of the Liancourt Rocks / Dokdo / Takejima on them? Mildly unbelievable. Bringing international disputes to the public on this populist manner reminds me of the stupidity of "Freedom Fries" during the buildup to the Iraq War. Arguments are made black and white and pushed onto the young because the vagaries of the gray area are harmful to the group publishing such propaganda.
No good can come from an international dispute that's fought on a battlefield of video games and potato chips. Well some good can come from it, those chips were pretty tasty.
