    N. Korea says American apologizes for 'hostile acts'

    If I had fought in the Korean War, I would never consider visiting North Korea. If I had fought in the Vietnam War, ditto.

    Heck, I would never go back to Fort Polk.

    Oh it is the same thing when Americans travel to Iran. They get themselves in trouble and than the family expects the US government to bail them out. Well sorry folks but you can't fix stupid.

    I can't think of one good reason for me to ever visit North Korea.

    Actually I think it depends on the day of the week. One day it's Dennis Rodman. rodman1.jpg



    The next it's Denise Rodman. rodman2.jpg



    I think he has an identity problem!

    My sympathies go out. I was only there sixteen weeks, which was more than enough.

    I wouldn't go to North Korea, and I didn't even fight in the war.

    I'm sure if he did confess, there was no coercion to get him to do so. Just because he was not allowed any sleep for 72 hours.....what should that matter.

    I feel the same way after being stationed there in 1966. The mosquitoes seemed to be bigger than Condors. The only ones making money there were the bars and the hookers.

    Sounds like Fayettenam where we were stationed for 3 years.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Yeah, I was at Bragg for three years, as well. I will take it over Polk anytime.

    I don't understand the thought process for an old guy. Young guy I can figure the alphabet soup group has him doing something but not at this age. We fought in Korea and Viet Nam I am the Vietnam guy two tours against communism. Lost our brothers and sisters to the war and then we are going back to spend tourist dollars to support the regime we fought. I feel for the family I don't think the US should enter into talks about this guy or try to get him back.

    He traveled to a country that still holds the Pueblo a US Navy commissioned ship as a war prize when there was no war going on and when they arrested him he wants help for what? Being stupid.

    Sorry no feeling for this guy at all.

    Just my opinion but throw flames this way if you must I can't change how I feel about this.
