Incheon, South Korea - Thousands of anti-American protesters clashed with police as they attempted to raze a 16-foot bronze likeness of the American General, Douglas MacArthur. The statue was erected at the end of the Korean War in 1953. After the war 32,500 U.S. soldiers and scores of bases remained in South Korea. The demonstrators want all American forces to leave Korea and take the memorials to their generals with them.
