    What is the proof that Clinton gave something to the DPRK??? For all we know, he made Kim Jung Il look somewhat better, which could be some diplomatic leverage.

    Care to actually address my post?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    My thoughts exactly.

    However, I would find it hard to believe that they released these women out of pure kindness. I wonder what N. Korea gets for releasing these women?

    I didn't say simply credence, but more credence as such.

    They look better on the international scene. They seriously need that, and this could seriously affect whether people decide to agree to trades of grain and other essentials the DPRK is missing.

    the north koreans are the most notoriously corrupt and dishonest, insane, even, negotiators of the 20th century

    there's no bargaining with pyongyang, i fear

    that said, i guess folks can always hope for the best

    while whistling...
