Although I think NK should release the hostages, at this point, the State Department has little credibility. The U.S. Embassy in Moscow's website is replete with condemnations of the country where the diplomatic mission is located. Totally uncalled for, very unprofessional, and an intrusion into the country's sovereignty. People who are supposed to be professional diplomats also playing petty games like this with the Philippines and other countries.

Full statement:

"Today we received with deep sadness the news that Otto Warmbier has passed away.

On behalf of the entire State Department and the United States government, I extend my condolences to the Warmbier family, and offer my prayers as they enter a time of grief no parent should ever know.

We hold North Korea accountable for Otto Warmbier’s unjust imprisonment, and demand the release of three other Americans who have been illegally detained."

Hopefully his family can gain some solace in the fact that his death, though tragic and unjust*, is the best chance that the other political prisoners have to being brought back home.

 

* Though it was obviously stupid of him to visit North Korea, even if he did steal a poster he didn't deserve to be persecuted for it, and their government is a shitstain that should be Cloroxed from the face of the earth.

Thats all good and fine, but unless we are willing to send in a team to get them out and fuck them up, it's a pointless threat. I mean why the fuck should they care? It's not like we are going to do anything about it.

How about not visiting crazy places at all?

Hopefully Canada can get this pastor who was sentenced to life in prison in North Korea back while he is still alive and the NK commies have not bashed his head in.
