I am concerned that North Korea is exhibiting such hostile acts. This, plus their release last week stating that civilian aircraft are not guarenteed safety in passing over their airspace is quite strange. They remind me a little bit of Nazi Germany.. but who knows. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 98.15.249.161 (talkcontribs)

Great Job North Korea!Edit

I have seen it all now. Look at what North Korea has done. They have pretty much taken hostage two reporters probably going there to report something about pandas in China and they put a shoe over into that communist shithole and all hell breaks loose. What the hell is wrong with people... Seriously, again, first with airplanes now with writers. Have they nothing better to do than detaining innocent people? Kim Jong-Il: "Hey guys, I'm bored. Next person you see, especially if its a reporter, detain them." Nice going dumb asses. Now we have two of OUR people in that socialist craphole of society, and what are we going to do about it? Oh wait, we're being led by a liberal commie, "Lets talk about it, everything will work out in the end." Fricken ridiculous.

Sentenced: 12 years in a labor campEdit

I just read the South Korean newspapers a few minutes ago.

The journalists -- both women -- got 12 years in a (slave) labor camp.

This has got to be a joke. They'll probably demand some big-time ransom from the USA and will release the journalists when they get it.

But how are they going to handle the aftermath?

Does North Korea seriously think they can get away with this?
