North Koreans are quite unpredicted in their actions, just when people start thinking that they are getting nicer, they do something that shattered the hopes of peace ambassadors.

Now Bill is trying to win the release of two American journalists. What if Kim decides to keep him (Clinton) in Korea for a while, who will try to win his release? Hillary? Ha!

Yes it will. Former president Bill Clinton demonstrated sincerity and, it seems, a caring attitude. What could ease tensions if not that?

Urge to Americans,

Please do not be so naive in thinking that few hours of conversation is going to solve issue with evil dictators such as Korea and Iran.
Even prophets who had messages from God could not convince humans to do as they want.
If I were American I would worry what Clinton had to give to North Korea.
What do you offer to Evil?
I also do not undesrtand why some Americans go to such places and cause such headaches and grief. What is wrong with them

As a result of their stupidity their governments are forced to give in Evil.

Obviously, Bill Clinton knew exactly what he was doing. What did he have to give for their release? Probably assurance that the human trafficking story would not would not be aired. Why do Americans go to such places, because they want to help the people living there! They wanted to expose the human trafficking taking place there.

Do yo honestly think that Government of such countries such as Korea , Iran and other dictatorship countries are scared about " A report that two American Asian " sister would write about Human Trafficking.

They are doing so many terrible things that are against Human rights
and there has been many reports and books on what they have done and what they are doing already. Believe me those cruel dictators are not scares and I highly care about how the rest of the world sees them. They actually like the negative publicity since it makes them see even more powerful and dictator. They actually thrive on the fear they create .

So rest assure what was on the table was not about the story being publish. I am sure that US had to offer something much more.

As for the two girls I think that they were either very Naive / Stupied / or had other Agendas for crossing illegally to a country such as North Korea. Two sister at the same time no one is that dumb.
The sad part is that there are always American People or Europeans who knowingly place themselves in such dangers for the sake of becoming " Popular " and then they create a mess for their countries and government. Believe me their government have to face many headaches to reslove their mess. Which I am sure would cost them a lot.

Think about it did any one knew these two sisters as a reporters before this Drama? Now they are going to be famous reporters. Shame on them if they caused this on purpose.
