According to reports




According to KCNA, Mr Miller tore up his tourist visa on arrival in the country and shouted that "he came to the DPRK [North Korea] after choosing it as a shelter."


So can someone tell me why the USA is trying to get him released?

Surely this clown made his bed and decided he doesn't want to be a American Citizen? Leave him in North Korea and give his place in the USA to a deserving hard working grateful person from the 3rd world wanting to become a LEGAL US citizen.


North Korea goes on to say:



During the trial, prosecutors said Mr Miller admitted having a "wild ambition" to spend time in a North Korean prison so he could find out about the country's human rights situation, the Associated Press (AP) reports.



If this is the case then he is even more of a idiot and deserves a Darwin award if he dies during his 6 years hard labour.


No idea why his release is a top priority. The USA has enough idiots floating about why do you want another one back?

I know I sound crazy, and I know crazy people are out there...but sometimes I just think no one can be this stupid. This has to be a double agent or something...right?

It did cross my mind that he is some CIA agent reject.

Though he must have been in special ed spy school to be this stupid.

I see a spy movie staring Adam sandler appearing

Well I highly doubt he was particularly level headed to tear his visa up in North Korea.

That doesn't seem to be what sane people do.

Sounds to me like he is a text book example of jumping from the frying pan into the fire?

Why go to North Korea?

See there kids, if you're ambitious enough, you really can make your wildest dreams come true.

Why go to North Korea?


Choosing NK over the US?

Quite a message.

I find this very revealing about this administration.


The White House has described securing the release of Mr Miller and the two other American citizens detained in North Korea as a "top priority".


But yet they don't do squat and actively hinder the release of the two journalists held by ISIS, who are then beheaded.

My dislike for this administration grows by the day.

Honestly I dont blame you.


Why would this clown be who willing choose to go to North Korea be more of a priority than kidnap victims?

I would be cautious about trusting any information coming out of the North Korean state. That includes the government's media report about Miller's alleged act of tearing his passport/visa and yelling at staff. We don't know what he done, and North Korea is notorious for the ways in which they handle prosecutions of foreigners.

Miller may have committed the acts, he may have not.

If he did tear up his documents, i would say that he deserves what he gets. If he did not, then he would need to be released as soon as possible.

The US government actually performed a raid on an IS compound in an attempt to free the prisoners, including those already killed by IS. Obviously the raid was unsuccessful, but it shows that the US government actually tried to do something.

Makes me wonder why a American would choose to go to a country that actively despises you, who is still technically at war with you and is constantly threatening the USA with nuclear annihilation (as pathetic as that sounds from North Korea.)

To me one seems to takes ones own like in ones hands when they go to North Korea and should take personal responsibility for there won stupid actions.
