  Samsung parts are basically much superior in terms of quality and quantity.  Apple's reduced order from Samsung apparently has nothing to do with their rivalry, more to do with Apple's penny-pinching.  Yes,  Apple is basically cutting corners now.    So we as consumers lose when Apple starts dumping inferior craps and still charge the premium for Apple's elaborate packaging.
    I think Apple approached Samsung when iPad 2's LG-made displays started having that infamous light leakage prob in early 2011.  I don't think Samsung and Apple had a lot of display business until that point.  Toshiba made tft displays for Apple's earlier iPhones.  So I don't really see where Samsung's display fits in Apple's supply chain.
  Samsung's business practice is already well-known - that's how they crushed the Japanese memory / display competitors.  I recommend that you read Sony vs. Samsung:  The Inside Story of the Electronics Giants' Battle For Global Supremacy.  Well, at least Samsung can't steal Apple's technology - since there is really nothing to steal   (duck!)   Yep, no one wants to do business with Samsung and that's why their customer base and revenue have been going up quite steadily...
  LG has been making Apple displays for a long while now (and I believe is Apple's largest display supplier) - they've been also losing a lot of money, despite Apple's huge orders.  
  eh?  got any point to make on US-Korea relation?  or Samsung-Apple?   None?  thought so  
  eh?  If it hadn't been for the US, the country would have been unified under Kim Il Sung, with much fewer dead Koreans / American soldiers.  I don't see why that's so bad?   but who know what might have happened?  Vietnam, despite the bitter war that killed millions, now trades with the US.    Development Econ 101:  also remember, unlike Nehru's Soviet-style socialistic economy that starved millions (saved by  US's intervention in India, aka "Green Revolution"), North...
  I think the public opinion is already swinging that way.  There was a NYtime article illustrating Apple's exploitation of the current US patent system - changed dramatically under Bruce Lehman's leadership, a former *lobbyist* appointed as head of the USPTO by Clinton in 1993.  And of course we all know that Clinton was a close buddy of Steve Jobs.  Then today, NPR - Planet Money ran a story on the recent Samsung vs Apple lawsuit and how the US patent system should be...
  what anti-American sentiment?  (can you spell "projection"?)      I don't know..  How many times has Samsung gotten in trouble for bribing US officials?  Let me also ask, while at it, do you know how many former VP's or other politically influential figures / officers serve on board of directors of  Samsung?
  can you name any other court that sided with Apple on anything (especially against Samsung)?
  Yes, and Samsung is also one of the few (I can't really think of anyone at the moment) that can mass produce in quantities that Apple wants.  Samsung also make 97% of all AMOLED manufactured worldwide.
