Reporters in Libya have discovered an Asian among the Arabs (one of these things just doesn’t belong here). Chirs Jeon, a UCLA math student (explains a lot), decided that rather than end is summer vacation he would opt to go join the Libyan rebels. So he is running around with his backpack and camcorder recording “cool stuff” as he plays war.
Why’d he make the long trek from Cali to Libya? “It is the end of my summer vacation, so I thought it would be cool to join the rebels,” Jeon told Hope. “This is one of the only real revolutions.”
Jeon surely doesn’t mean any harm. And it’s not as if the Libyans he’s with are super-professional soldiers. But they’re fighting for their freedom and their lives. Jeon is taking a cavalier detour through their war, bringing along his video camera to pick up some “great footage.” Hopefully he won’t get himself or anyone hurt while he finishes up his war-zone road trip.
This is known as a self correcting problem. Not that he’s gonna die, it’s just Homeland Security isn’t going to let him back in.
