Activist: US missionary likely detained in NKorea


Link


SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- An American missionary is believed to be in North Korean custody after he illegally entered the communist nation on Christmas Day in an attempt to call attention to the reclusive country's human rights conditions, an activist said Sunday.

Robert Park, 28, slipped across the frozen Tumen River into the North from China on Friday. There has been no word from him since, but an activist who knows Park said he was likely arrested quickly by border guards or police in the authoritarian state.

Well that was smart.

Another mission for Bill?

This is very strange, why are there so many American's being taken captive in some of the most dangerous countries in the world. What would possess one to do these things.

I certainly hope the guy is alright, and I wonder how this will effect the ongoing diplomatic situation.

What exactly did he think he were going to achieve? Does he realise that he is only creating more tension with his stunts?

Park, who is of Korean descent, was carrying a letter urging leader Kim Jong Il to step down and free all political prisoners

Obviously, a solid plan was in place.

I'm getting tired of these little hostage "proxy events", that seem to spring up every now and then. Like, "Oh, I accidentally got captured in an extremely volatile region that no sane person from my country should ever be venturing through, especially alone." "Oh, boy, I hope the media sure makes these North Koreans look evil, because they are so evil for 'capturing' me."



So convenient for Fox News. It's like they don't even have to make anything up anymore.

No sympathy for idiots. People taking refrigerator magnet sayings ("be the change you want in world" for example) as gospel are almost to stupid to be narsissict, almost. I think his mom told him he was 'special' one to many times. BTW if God didn't want Kim Jong Il to run N. Korea he wouldn't be, assuming god exists and is all powerful. I don't want a penny of my taxes going to try and get this guy released. I'd rather the U.S. ambassador to N. Korea burn our tax money lighting cigars than help this ya-hoo.
