    Shin Sang-ok (October 18, 1926 – April 11, 2006) was a prolific South Korean film producer and director, with more than 100 producer and 70 director credits. He is most famous for having been kidnapped by the previous North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, for the purpose of producing critically acclaimed films.

    Later, North Korea allowed the five victims that it said were alive to return to Japan, on the condition that they return later to North Korea. The victims returned to Japan on October 15, 2002.
    However, the Japanese government, listening to the pleas of the general public and the abductees' families, told North Korea that the victims would not be returning. North Korea claimed that this was a violation of the agreement and refused to continue further talks.
    Now you are.

Not so subliminal message, get y'all some nukes, mos' scratchee! It's not Iran that has helped NKorea get its' Nukes working, but our great ally Pakistan and their uber hero A. Q. Khan. That's the same A. Q. Khan that offered Libya help for its' discontinued Nuke program and look what happened to Libya. Is there a message here?
    Can't tell if serious. Are you really trying to make a case for the US being worse than North Korea?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Rodman towers over most Americans.

    I would love to see some group photos with him and a bunch of North Koreans.

    He would be a giant next to them.

    I wonder if the people were scared of him.

    Was any part of my post inaccurate? Are you suggesting we are worse? Just basic comparisons to give perspective. Don't you think?

    Yes, it's inaccurate through gross oversimplification of some very complex issues.

    Those both refer to programs of kidnapping foreign nationals, sometimes totally randomly. The instance of sang- ok was specificly for the production of films.

    So neither actually deal with what you claim. Also, it's not like anyone forcedRodman to offer such glowing praise originally, when he could have easily not commented or offered a more tempered response.

    Most likely Rodman is just a stupid **** who didn't expect such a negative backlash, and is now attempting to do damage control

I'm sure it will be fun, LOL.
    Seems the options available to him go beyond highly praising the guy and public ally calling him a tyrent.

    Obvious false dichotomy.

    Divulging state secrets is a bit different than calling the head of state a poo-face

    not trashing Kim =/= heavily praising him

    Golly, I would be scared to go, and having to join all of those many, many other famous foreign prisoners who are already there, like, umm, well you know, from, umm.........Gosh, never mind, they are all North Koreans, too!

    Oopsie!
    Are you joking? They jail foreigners all the time. Check your ignorance. I honestly cannot believe how comfortable some people are with speaking before they educate themselves. Holy ****.

    EDIT: Just saw Hatuey's post. Hopefully, you're done spewing ignorance now.
