#4 The North Koreans have now taken captive a US citizen with no ethnic connection to Korea whom they had admitted to their country as a tourist.

A line was crossed here. Tourists have never been expected to toe the ideological line of the host dictatorship. This has been an implicit understanding for decades.

Western officials' acceptance of Rushdie rules vis a vis Islam might have given the Norks some ideas.

The logical next step for the Norks is abducting Americans living in South Korea and Japan.

"As the Roman, in days of old, held himself free from indignity, when he could say, Civis Romanus sum, so also a British subject, in whatever land he may be, shall feel confident that the watchful eye and the strong arm of England will protect him from injustice and wrong."

#5 "Knocking out the Pyongyang power grid for a couple of weeks might get their attention."

What power grid?

Do two buildings, or even two streets, count as a "grid"?
