    Ok, but why not travel to america in that case? We have the same thing. Now that your dollar is worth as much as an american dollar you can enjoy our countries great scams. I know NK is a great show where the magic is protected by the penalty of death, but we have have christian based theme parks where you can watch history unfold as it was written in the bible. DC has got to be better than NK on the level of attempting to trick you into believing they are benevolent. Visit during spring when they piss away millions on flowers while the stench of bums drifts down from baltimore and infests the city. Oh, and we have Texas and Arizona. If you want bat**** crazy there is no more crazy a place than texas. If you wan totalitarian rule from crazy people with delusions of grandeur we have Joe Arpio of arizona. All the crazy of the original glorious ruler, and a lot less money.

    Just the novelty of traveling to the most backward country with the biggest personality cult the world has ever seen is irresistible. Who can beat Fox news for fake patriotism? Truly faked patriotism is not forced, it comes from gallons of 24 hour Kool aid. We have religious crazies by the truckload. We have jobless hipster kids who like to pretend they are saving the world by sitting around in parks and screwing around on their iphones. Hell, we have crazy men who dress up in pastel pony costumes and jerk off to popular furry art. Where else in the world can you get a crazy bunch of middle age men who fuinally have the courage to play with the toys that they couldn't bring themselves to buy in their youth? We have crazy in so many varieties there is no place in the world that can compete with our crazy. If you find crazy for less, shoot it dead because it might breed. Oh, and we let crazies have assault rifles.

    I don't know what you are thinking with North Korea. Even if you get done with American crazy, there is still japan before you get to NK. Just look up Yatta and remember yoyu cannot unsee that sort of thing. There is a reason i never looked twice at some silly south korean guy doing a stupid dance. This is because I have been initiated to japanese crazy and gangman style is nothing to gundam insanity.

    Looks like the hermit kingdom has arrested another US citizen. Hopefully nothign terrible happens, but when it comes to the DPRK you never know.
    Will the same GOP reps be writing a letter for this fellow, demanding his release?

    I know he's not as all-American as the marine who carried a shotgun into to Mexico, but you'd think they'd be making some noise.

    there are very few things that make me nostalgic for the days when humans on one side of the world had no idea what humans on the other side of the world were doing. the DPRK, however, falls into this category for me.

    Clearly this illustrates the difference between a US Citizen and an American. This guy's US citizenship should be revoked as should anyone else who uses their citizenship for political gain.

    I think it would be risky (yes), but interesting.
    You cant get into North Korea. Occasionally they allow journalists into the DPNK, however there is no tourism - and even the journalists allowed in are guarded at all times and can only investigate or even talk to DPNK citizens when allowed to.

    American citizens can visit North Korea only during the "mass games"

    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
