    Re: North Korea says it is holding American tourist for unspecified violations

    Do we have any North Korean criminals or thugs in prison they maybe might want to trade for?

    People that choose to go to places like Iran and North Korea...seriously...they cant be shocked when bad things happen.

    North Korea has learned from the Taliban and will be demanding five ships of grain and fuel oil for each American detainee.

    Sure must be easy for NK to identify our spies, because there really isn't any other reason why an American would be going there.

    Re: North Korea says it is holding American tourist for unspecified violations

    What angers me the most is that that the US liberation of North Korea would be possible but if it wasn't for Carter and Clinton the North wouldn't have the capabilities to nuke the south and hold so many families in hostage or bondage.

    China is not the issue - The DPNK is...

    I suppose that's what you get when you sell food doe for letting your government trick you into believing the food is for eating and not nuclear weapons. I would suspect that even China finds their hostility provoking at the very least.

    Any competent leader would put an and to this madness - China wont care - they're too dependent on exports and the US economy.

    I figure everyone has a right to stick their head in the mouth of a crocodile if that's what they really want to do. But like you, I'm not going to be very sympathetic if something bad happens because of it.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Maybe it is news in their country? Besides, the U.S. doesn't throw tourists in prison for reasons like leaving a Bible on the nightstand of their hotel room.

    Um, you're comparing the warning to not go to NK the same as Mexico? Last I checked there are no American Airlines that travel into North Korea. Guess why?

    Yeah, the warnings are a little bit more than watch yourself in Mexico. It is recommended by the U.S. that NO American citizen travel to North Korea. Don't see that same warning for Mexico, wonder why?

    Yeah, if you get caught there in NK, I hope you enjoy your rest of your life in a cell because I can tell you I won't be asking for any U.S. support to get your ass out. If you are dumb enough to travel there, you are dumb enough to get what you get. And all of this is the general you.

    Another American detained in DPRK for very weird reasons. This time we are not even being told the exact reason. I expect this just to be more attention seeking from the DPRK government. Hopefully this US citizen can be undetained and returned home ASAP. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    The boy with the bowl haircut saw what a good deal the Taliban got and now he wants in on the action while the sucker is still in office.
