#1 You just know these two Journalists are going to have an 'unfortunate accident'.

No way Kimmie-boy is going to let a couple of reporters get out of the country after experiencing the North Korean Labor camps. The media will be all over them and they would be considered 'credible sources'.

#3 This is a detestable horror and an insult to all Americans and the legitimacy to exist as free people. I'm forwarding this article to every "progressive" communist sympathizer in academia I know, and in my neck of the woods, there are plenty to stand up and be counted. I expect to hear a lot of crickets chirping followed by "but but buts" that would put Milton from Office Space to shame.

#4 CF, I'm thinking that the two journalists will not get to a real Nork labor camp. They'll be kept at a hotel, and when Bill Richardson finally arrives to grovel out an apology the Norks will accept it -- and then hand him the tab for their stay.

#5 You bet GT. This is a nice Rorschach test for the Left. If you don't immediately find the notion of a Nork labor camp to be completely offensive and a horrific violation of human rights, then shut up about Gitmo.

#7 Has anyone started a fund to raise money to fly MORE journoturds to the China/Nork border? My checkbook is waiting...

I wouldn't wish these two women's fate on anyone, even liberals...

Okay, maybe William Ayers and Bernadette Dorhn, maybe, but that's it.

Seriously, this NORK regime is so foul and so evil, there is no justification for this kind of "justice."

They're a ghastly prospect for anyone.

#11 My guess is that Ogabe will use this as an excuse to hand out all kinds of goodies to Kim Jong Il. Not that Ogabe needed one, of course. The journos will be released and start wailing about how Gitmo's existence is the reason they got arrested in the first place - because Uncle Sam had lost all moral authority.

#12 Enjoy the 'entertainment' as the MSM 'discovers' North Korea. You remember, one of the Axis of Evil founding members, a concept po-po'ed by the very same MSM that will now make these fellow members near martyrs. It's interesting when you or your neighbors get the big wedge of life it may get a moments notice in the media, but when one of theirs ends up hanging in theirs, we get very notable coverage.

#13 If the Norks plan on using these women as bargaining chips, they will never get near a real labor camp. They will have to do laundry or something in a "prison" and will be intimidated, but not to the level of Abu Ghraib so the Norks can be seen as "intimidating", but not as evil as the US.

Pure Nork dog and pony show, 101.

#14 You are probably right Steve - Kimmie won't let them near a real labor camp to begin with. And the MSM will be more than willing to promote any 'narrative' coming out of the workers paradise. Never mind that there is plenty of evidence of the real labor camps out there.

"Release those two women or Pyongyang will be nuked into oblivion at midnight."

That is all.

#16 I feel very sorry for them but also feel the need to raise this point. "Calling somebody from Gore's TV network Current Tv a reporter - is stretching the definition of reporter."

#18 These are American Citizens. A message needs to be sent. A Ranger battalion or two to go through and raze the place to the ground while re-aquiring these two. Obama better find his balls now as there is nowhere to go but down from here.;

#19 Some say 3 million died in the re education camps in North Vietnam where their stated purpose was to turn rocks into rice.

#21 Some say 3 million died in the re education camps in North Vietnam

I think the toll was about 2 million in all SE Asia, most of them in Cambodia. Communist Vietnam "reeducated" 1 million and murdered about 200,000 of them.

#22 American Journalists Sentenced to Reform through Labor

Pyongyang, June 8 (KCNA) -- The Central Court of the DPRK staged a trial of American journalists Laura Ling and Seung-eun Lee from June 4 to 8.

The trial confirmed the grave crime they committed against the Korean nation and their illegal border crossing as they had already been indicted and sentenced each of them to 12 years of reform through labor.

North Korea has had a _very_ long time to set records.

#25 The liberal left tends to enshrine these communist paradises until it affects them directly. Sorry no first amendment rights in North Korea or most of these other communist hell holes. Same comments apply to most muslim countries also. Rights such as we enjoy and take for granted here take an extended vacation in these places.
