'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

Text Fwd: Aerial surveillance over Korean camp in Afghanistan due

Aerial surveillance over Korean camp in Afghanistan due
By Jung Sung-ki
Staff reporter


Korean and U.S. troops in Afghanistan will conduct aerial surveillance over the construction site of a Korean provincial reconstruction team (PRT) there, to detect possible attacks by local insurgents, the Joint Chiefs of Staff here said Wednesday.

The announcement comes a week after a hostile force fired rockets at the Korean PRT camp near Charikar.

The construction site was hit last week by two rockets presumably fired by an insurgent group. There were no casualties or any significant damage to Korean facilities under construction.

"In cooperation with the U.S. military, aerial surveillance operations will be held one or two times every day near the PRT construction site to thwart attacks by a hostile force," Col. Lee Boong-wu, spokesman for the JCS, told reporters.

Lee said the Korean and U.S. militaries have been actively exchanging intelligence on insurgent moves in Afghanistan since the base was hit by rockets.

"Surveillance equipment, including thermal observation devices, has been installed around the site," the spokesman said.

Construction of the Korean PRT base is scheduled to be completed by August or September, and other facilities will be set up by December, he added.

Seoul officials believe last week's rocket attack was a warning from an insurgent group a day before the main contingent of the South Korean troops arrived Thursday at the U.S. air base in Bagram.
