The man, according to KCNA, entered the country on a tourist visa. He tore his tourist visa and shouted that "he would seek asylum" and "came to the DPRK (North Korea) after choosing it as a shelter," KCNA said.

He wants to be there, I say let him stay!

Except that he was probably having a manic episode or something, assuming that the N Koreans are even being truthful.

Let their government funded socialist healthcare system evaluate his mental health. Less for us to deal with.

KCNA identified the man as Miller Matthew Todd, who it says was taken into custody on April 10.

I am guessing his name is actually Matthew Todd Miller.  Or Todd Matthew Miller.

"aimed to escalate confrontation and bring dark clouds of a nuclear arms race."

Has nobody told Kimmy that the race is long over?

There's asylum and then there's insane asylum.

You guys are all making a big assumption here, namely that this actually happened.

My money is on some "See, America is so bad they are fleeing here!" type propaganda.

A long time ago sometimes American would go to Cuba for asylum.  Sometimes highjacking was involved, and it involved OG hippies, usually on the wrong side of the law.  This was when highjacking an airplane was something not horribly serious, done for sport by non-violent political grandstanders.

At first Cubans liked it, but then they got tired of them and started sticking them all in some crappy flat of apartments together.  I guess they eventually became annoying to the Cubans.

This is my line of thinking also, or someone politics tab troll finally put their money where their mouth was.

Well, the good fearing, much oppressed, tax paying gun enthusiasts of the right have been warning us for years that they would leave our socialist hellhole for greener pastures.

We won't have him to kick around anymore, and we better be careful, or the other Atlas/John Gault types might also shrug off the chains of our oppression.

And where would we be without these pillars of the community?

Based on what I have read, they were first interrogated for several hours and the ones not immediately thrown into prison were put in a flimsy block of flats in a remote area where they wouldn't bother anyone. The Cubans weren't stupid, they knew that anyone who would hijack a plane was too stupid and unstable to even be a useful idiot to them. Mind you, I have no doubt that every one of those hijackers expected to be hailed as a hero in Havana.

Don't hate on North Korean propaganda posters.

Those things are pure entertainment. I want to see that same artists do movie posters.

Now can we have a shout out for the dancing girls of the North Korean military?

I know, right? If they were just as good at everything else as they are with Photoshop 2.0, we'd have something to be afraid of.

At this point, North Korea is - at best - Lex Luthor from the Justice League TV cartoon in the 70s.

I wasn't 100% sure about the prison part and I left that out. And it sounds right.

He would have to also be insane.  I would rather be in interpol custody for 20 years than DPRK custody for one.

Well, on the one side of things, there is pretty much no chance that the NKoreans would extradict him.  Since we have no such treaty with them.

When he booked a trip to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea he probably thought he was traveling to South Korea.
