N.Korea sentences U.S. journalists to 12 years June 8, 2009

North Korea on Monday sentenced two American journalists to 12 years of hard labor in a case widely seen as a test of how far the isolated Communist state was willing to take its confrontation with the United States.

What the hell is taking shape over in North Korea ?  12 years hard labour for 2 journalists ?

This situation is rapidly getting out of hand … next thing we know, Kim Jeong-il will kick the bucket and all hell will break loose ! Remember that North Korea has the 5th largest army in the world and recently carried out several missile tests, despite threatened UN sanctions … it’s giving out warnings, creating exclusion zones around its borders, saying it will respond with extreme measures … oh and they also pulled out of the armistice governing the end of the Korean War (in which there was never a peace treaty signed) …

Is this all the work of a leader who believes himself to be so close to being invaded that he feels the need to do something … or the results of a madman’s mind !

Isn’t it amazing the way dictatorships work ?
