    Kim Jong Un just wants someone to hang with.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    just hoping it is something other than his military service in the war that caused this apprehension; something justifiable. otherwise, we will have to rely on dennis rodman to effect his release

    It may be rare, but he has no rights at all in that country and could be as you say, taken simply for having fought in Korea. It's rather foolish then.

    I agree they have no right to do this.

    I agree with Jamesrage. There are some situations you don't want to put yourself in. You don't want to visit Iran...North Korea...Syria to name a few.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    They're gonna do something like try to charge him with "war crimes" because he's a korean war veteran.

    NK people are taught the west was the aggressor and committed attrcoities against the NK people.

    Dem is quite right... This is incredibly rare... But having said that this man was a Korean war veteran, his intentions should have become known to the state department who probably warned him against traveling to North Korea.

    So one cannot be too sympathetic with the gentleman.

    from my limited vantage, it appears he processed all the appropriate documents

    and if that is the case, he has my sympathies .... unless it is found he did something really stupid
