I can see revisting South Korea but why would any American vet or even a private citizen even wanna go to that commie neighbor to the north..unless of course your a yo-yo like Rodman.

I have no idea...but I would have to say he is undoubtedly being "detained" as a war criminal, and will never be seen again, if he wasn't just shot out of hand as soon as out of sight.
Only things we should be sending to North Korea are "love bombs"...and no damn "policy bombing pauses"!

His son is now saying his father has disappeared and is going thru the State Department to find/get him back. There are still something like 7,910 American service personnel listed as MIA's from the Korean War. I am sure many died in prison camps or were sent to the Soviet Union or China for interrogation and never heard from again. Just imagine if you were one of them who never made it home.

Sounds like an act of war to me.

I don't think we should use tactical nucular weapos on them , lets send Delta force in there and take out Kim Jong Un........I don't want an all out nuclear war because once one is sent any country who has one after the first is off its nuclear holocost after that......

Well he was finally released after some 40+ days. All to a fanfare of family, friends and hordes of press. Glad he is finally home but I still wouldn't set foot in that commie country..maybe he had to make peace with himself because of the war but look what he got in return.
