    This is horrible & NK is wrong! but sadly the initial domino was initiated by him - just shows that a bull in a china shop can't be arrogant in thinking they can do no wrong just because they've been spoiled in their own homeland, as the saying goes "when in Rome..." lessons for all tourist to be respectful no matter if you're tempted to dare the local system

      I agreed NK is very wrong, but the brief comment was misinterpreted. It was more about visiting such an archaic, harsh, backward nation. I wouldn't have dared to provoke and potentially put myself in danger while away from the judicial safety of my nation. We can't assume actions that are ok in the US like a prank are acceptable abroad. My humble opinion, like the etiquette briefings we get from the military when we're stationed overseas, was meant for my fellow Americans because its sad, as I stated initially, that tourist are getting snarled in unfair local law enforcement. It was meant to be helpful, not disrespectful. Peace

      It really bothers me. I hope and pray Trump takes that evil Regime out. If we do go to war with North Korea. We need our slogan to be remember Otto Warmbier.
