    Most believe it is a political ploy to trade them for softer treatment by the west. Also No one is sure that the North Koreans did not cross into China to seize them to begin with. And of course the Chinese are not talking.

    Well, the word on the tube is that the N. Koreans snatched them from China. Obviously, it is a political ploy to ease tensions about the Nuke program the North is hurriedly putting together, but that doesn't ease the hardship placed on these two young ladies who were not doing anything illegal.

    I think it's time to kick some North Korean ass, personally.

    Of course were we to do that, then we'd be on the hook to put that nation back to together, wouldn't we?

    And since there's not much in it for us to control that place, we'll continue to use NK as another international boogieman to justify a bloated military budget.

    What President Obama does from this point on will be crucial. Personally, I think, N Korea is just testing the waters.

    I am God dam sick of Killer Kim Jung Wang Chung Mentally Ill.

    Here is the fucking solution, we tell China get rid of this rotton cabbage or we HAVE to re-arm Japan. China fears Japan for obvious reasons, Japan fears North Korea for obvious reasons.

    Lets dance.

    Ya Obama is gonna do that. Obama will do nothing but whine and tap dance. And then give in. He can not make friends if he threatens anyone. Maybe he can ask France and Germany what we should do?
