So saying that they must have been aware of one possible outcome is suddenly off topic, just because i have a dissenting opinion...and yes, it does
connect back to U.S.A. because they helped stir the shotpile that is the Korean Peninsula.
These women must have been aware that they would be imprisoned if they were caught, and yet they still tried to report...good on them, but why all the
surprise and outcry when they do get caught and do get the sentence that wasn't unexpected?
I do like the *shot* idea though

I'm sure they were aware of their *possible outcome, otherwise they would've taken a bus into NK, and perhaps had a picnic on the way.
I just don't understand how, better yet why
you wouldn't care about these journalists basing your argument on US foreign policy......which we
can both agree has a pretty crappy rep. Yes. But what do the 2 have in common here?
Stir the shotpile?
Well, the shotpile in the Korean peninsula has been the same scenario pretty much for more than 5 decades.....where is this going again exactly?
And why is it important?
Your fallacy is blaming these two women for the wrong reason, is my point.
As for being off topic?
While 'you guys' are in the Middle East stirring up a hornet's nest
While you train your young people to be state-sanctioned murderers
while you continue with the absolute greed that has the chance of pushing your country into environmental disaster
I have no sympathy.
This is not about my country. It's about 2 journalists.
As for your sympathy? It's not important. With all respect due.
What's the point of sympathy.?
When do you ever feel better about feeling bad for someone?
Sympathy is irrelevant.
It's not about pity either.
It's the fact that you show the same behavior patterns as US foreign policy does by turning your head. A double fallacy.
Why all the surpirse and outcry?
You said it yourself.
C'mon......let's do another shot, this time around show a little more support for these women who risked their lives for a story.
It's stories like the ones these 2 women risked 12 years of their life for that make a better difference at the end of the day.
