Former US Defense Secretary Robert Gates has just published his memoir, 'Duty.' He described the ex South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun as "crazy." Roh was elected into power on an anti-American and anti-Japanese platform.
The Korea Herald reports that, "Reading a new memoir by former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, South Koreans may be quite surprised by his characterization of the country's late President Roh Moo-hyun as "a little crazy."
Reportedly, President Roh demanded that US diplomats treat Japan as a "hostile nation."
According to the Korea Herald, "He calls Roh "anti-American and probably a little crazy." Roh was quoted as telling Gates that "the biggest security threats in Asia were the United States and Japan."
Nevertheless, Gates praised Roh's successor, Lee Myung-bak, as "tough-minded, realistic and very pro-American."
