    Tell me folks, are we not supposed to play the Star-Spangled Banner now when Obama goes to the U.K.?

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Why is it so many people have forgotten, or incapable of understanding symbolic messages anymore? This pianist should be run out of the country, but so many foolish people just ignore the insult.

    Sad really.

    That would be petty. Pettiness betrays weakness.

    What makes people think this song didn't have an implied meaning?

    Either the song was chosen deliberately as a subtle "**** you," or it was a simple expression of nationalistic patriotism. I really can't judge without knowing Lang Lang's thought process.

    The lyrics are anti-American IN THE EXTREME!!! All Korean War era propoganda is extreme. I remember seeing old Korean War movies replace NBA basketball games on TV in May 1999 after the U.S. accidently bombed the Chinese embassy in the then-Yugoslavia...
