Deserter's Mistake

>> Monday, December 20, 2004

A Vietnam era deserter finally is freed by North Korea. Talk about a poor choice! Time Magazine makes sure to point out that the guy wasn't fully stocked upstairs, so I suppose that's an explanation of sorts. I mean when he deserted, the Korean War was only 10 years past. He should have known full well what North Korea was about.

The good thing about this story is the timing. We need personal accounts of the regime so people understand the next potential area of conflict. With the strange stories coming out of NK lately, my pucker-factor indicator is pinging hard. China building amphibious landing craft also causes a less than warm feeling. I don't know what to make of the proposed joint Russian/Chinese military exercises, except that it would provide training for an invasion perhaps...
