If China and Japan could solve their differences, the West wouldn't have to step in at all. In all reality, this should have nothing to do with the West. Asia should be primarily taking care of their own region.
Why did they arrest this person? What charge? Last time I checked, I didnt think "being a camera man/woman reporting on facts" was an offense? If they dont release these people, I can sense that things can get really ugly really soon.

I suggest that N. Korea let go of them. They are not enemy combatants, they are reporters, doing what they are paid to do, report.
I think if they dont release them, that there willbe hell to pay for N. Korea.
If I was President of The United States, I wouldnt be letting them get away with this, I would be holding them accountable for every second they have our people locked up. If they didnt, well then I wouldnt be a very nice President from that point on.

Glad to see someone else is seeing this incident for what it is, a breach of N. Korea's sovereignty.
You wonder into N. Korea illegally and expect to face some consequences.
The INS treats border-jumpers the exact same way in the United States, and no one for a second considers illegal immigration an "act of war" by Mexico.
It's illegal immigration, period.
The same way trespassing over a neighbour's fence or across the N. Korean border is trespassing either way.
You best believe, North Korea will act within it's State Laws and detain illegal aliens.
The same way America would.
