    There is possible danger to any country on that list. Just because you are warned and if something bad does happen to you your homeland shouldnt simply ignore you

    Its rare.
    Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. I would call someone taking a vacation to North Korea as lacking in common sense.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    They shouldn't ignore you, and they won't. All the tards from the U.S. who go to North Korea as tourists and get detained and made a slave make the news, so they aren't ignored in their homeland. Their homeland also shouldn't waste resources trying to get them freed.

    Because of a risk of being detained? There is always a risk of something like that happened no matter what country you visit.

    In 2009 289 US tourists visited the DPRK. The number has slowly been rising. There are 3 US detannes in Korea. Ill take my chances.

    No one said that you can't take your chances. Just don't expect the U.S. government to waste resources trying to get you freed if you're detained, and don't expect people to not question your sanity for willingly going there.

    Not because of interest in it, because of going there.

    And you're free to do that. Insane people usually don't recognize their insanity. Just don't call on the U.S. government to waste resources trying to free you if you're detained. Take it like a man, because you were warned against going there. Have fun!
