Anyone know whay the full story behind this is ?

 

Do US tour companies organise trips to North Korea knowing the risks ? Are US students not aware of the risks ?

 

Is it actually some weird evangelical christian thing ?

 

All seems both very sad and very stupid at the same time.

 

But I do not know the details, so I am curious.

 

North Korea is not on my to-visit list.

I have no pity for these guys whatsoever.   I dont think his own country should be over backwards to get them back.   What the fuck are you doing going there, unless you are a spy.   Duh

 

 

Note to myself......Don't ever ever ever go to North Korea, even if they sent you a first class ticket, and put you up in their best hotel..........  Iran and the like too.   What the fuck

 

many of these idiots are religious, and bring a bible and want to push it on them........   duh

He has an unfortunate surname too: Mr Warmbier.

 

The US government stongly advises US citizens not to go there. He does just seem fairly stupid or deliberately provoking trouble and media attention.

$10k used car for 15 years hard labour?

That thing will only be worth $600 when he gets back,if ever.

Mention hard labour in Salford and you'll be talking to yourself

My Pattaya budget is perfectly adequate as long as I don't spend any of it

American guy at work this morning was ranting about NK off the back of this story.

 

Until I pointed out the 35 year sentence handed to Bradley Manning for uploading a video to the internet.
