One dead tourist.


Seriously though, if you've saved up to go on holiday why would you go there? It's only a case of people trying to impress their friends.

I still remember when a friend of mine emailed me and asked her to meet up with her mum for dinner whilst she was taking in teh sights and sounds of Kabul after travelling from teh Khyber pass. Epic fail, especially as this was just after a shed load of Korean missionaries were kidnaped in AFG and bummed.

I think this might answer:

The case against Korean-American Kenneth Bae... described as a tour operator
Family ties and a job there.

I think its dawned on Kim Jong Il that placing his countries armed forces on double security, forward posture, high alert assault imminent status is not going to result in concessions from South Korea or the Americans. Which means he's not going to get the food and oil he needs to stop his economy collapsing.

So I suspect the American tourist is dead meat. Show trial coming up, followed by demand for concessions. When concessions are not forthcoming he'll execute the poor bugger to show (a) NK is under threat from American 'spies' and (b) make the point he'll resort to anything to get shipments resumed and (c) save face internally.

If anything Kim Jong Il needs a ressurection.

If is wasn't a socialist paradise with a highly democratic hereditary leadership tradition, I wouldn't get mixed up on which leader had been chosen by 99.999% of the electorate voting secretly and without the secret police looking over their shoulders...

What I want to know is has anybody had a decent vanilla slice lately?
