I guess you forgot, we are still at war and THESE are in violation of the treaty that was violated DECADES ago ...IT'S OVER now.
Too dangerous to allow it AND the war can go back to hot without any further provocations being necessary.
They may surrender and survive if they wish, but KIM will be turned over to his own after.
IF he survives.
I suggest this because the Pentagon is in command of operations this time, Trump will decide when.
NO political lag to screw up timing so ..about a month then clean up.
I HIGHLY DOUBT they would sail this much tonnage for another simple scare

North Korea is now holding a 4th U.S. citizen "hostage". Would make bigger news, if it was a White American.

www.foxnews.com...

I don't think the USA, under Obama, paid any ransom for ISIS hostages, or U.S. sailors that IRAN held hostage, did we? Kim Jong should see from our past actions he will gain nothing from this.

I was just logging in to post that. Seems he was working at the same school as the last person they recently detained.

I wouldn't be surprised to see more of this honestly.

Here is an interesting three part article discussing life in North Korea: link

Part two of the article discusses schooling in NK and has some information about PUST, the school where two of the people were working. Well, more what we would consider "volunteering" to provide instruction, as foreigners there are not compensated.

From the Guardian article:


The most prestigious institution is the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (Pust), which was created by Kim Jong-il and has some strange traditions. All courses are taught in English by professors who are all foreigners. Any foreigner who is not a citizen of South Korea is welcome – regardless of qualifications – to become a professor. However, given that professors are not allowed to leave campus without permission, are not paid a salary, are not compensated for their trip to North Korea and are fed badly, very few people volunteer.

The majority of North Korea’s Number One university professors are Christian fundamentalists, whose trips are sponsored by their church. Still, it is one of the few places in North Korea where you may talk to a foreigner and learn something about the outside world, and is considered very prestigious.


I found it to be interesting reading. Worth a few minutes to check out the article imho.

Earlier I had mentioned the USB memory sticks containing as much info as they could pack being dropped into North Korea to help the citizens understand that it the regime keeping them down. Here is a great write up on how it works and seems to actually be working. This is a great alternative to war; it is change coming from within.

FastCompany.com, May 8, 2017 - The Dangerous Mission to Undermine North Korea With Flash Drives.

Highlights:

  • It is punishable by death to possess, sell, or distribute the drives
  • Called, Flash Drives For Freedom, South Koreans have been sneaking them in since 2015
  • In 2016, they delivered 10,000 drives. This year, they already have a donation of 100,000 drives.
  • The founding members and leaders have been targeted by NK assassins and now have South Korean body guards

    I wish some big companies would get behind this and donate a few million flash drives. Imagine if companies like Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc gave a couple million dollars each for this effort. Drop in the bucket for them, but would make a huge impact. Of course they wouldn't because they don't want it to be public and anger China...

    Heck the U.S and SK governments could donate some through a front company. For the price of a new fighter jet, this little non profit would have flash drive media to use for years and years... well a decade or more.

    I have some old USB drives lying around. I think I'll drop em in the mail this week.

    NK unveils satellite images of THAAD in SK.

    SEOUL, May 10 (Yonhap) -- North Korea has unveiled what it claims are satellite images of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system recently deployed in South Korea, a move aimed at flaunting the country's capability to gather intelligence against Seoul. The North's state-run Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station aired two pictures showing what were described as THAAD components installed at a golf course at the southern South Korean county of Seongju during a TV talk show aired on Monday. "The satellite pictures show the THAAD (missile) launcher is currently deployed near the northern ridge of the Seongju golf course while the X-band radar and other auxiliary equipment are installed near the western ridge from the center," the broadcast said.


    Image at link.

    NK at least have their eyes on the ball so to speak.

    And out of fear, Kim Jong is now threatening to "severely punish" the 4 American detainees. I prefer to call them hostages.

    What should the U.S. do if Jong starts torturing our citizens?

    Go in and get them and then end the N. Korean regime once and for all.

    Civis Americanus Sum... I am an American Citizen.

    Back in the day it was Civis Romanus Sum - I am a Roman Citizen. It's all a Roman citizen had to say to people wanting to do him harm to get them to stop. Harm a Roman citizen and the Roman Empire steps in.

    I agree. I saw a video of one of the hostages crying already. Thankfully our President is on top of these things as well.

    NK says its new ballistic missile can carry nuke-warhead



    SEOUL, May 15 (Yonhap) -- North Korea said Monday it has successfully tested-fired a new mid- and long-range ballistic missile that can carry a large nuclear warhead, claiming that the U.S. mainland is within its striking range. North Korea said that a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead" can be fit on its new ground-to-ground missile, in its threat to launch a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the United States.


    It flew around 786km (and 30 mins according to Japanese sources)- SK looking for verify technical aspects and have stated previously that NK is yet to master atmospheric re-entry.

    You make a good point.

    Japan says: Japanese officials said the missile flew for about 30 minutes, traveling about 500 miles and reaching an unusually high altitude of 1,240 miles. It splashed down just 60 miles south of the Russia coast.

    Kim Jong could hit the International Space Station.

    Glorious Leader could fly up to the International Space Station himself and hijack it himself if he wanted.

    Then someone in the NK military should offer to tie him to the next missile he launches.
