    PYONGYANG, South Korea — North Korea on Friday sentenced a U.S. citizen of Korean heritage to 10 years in prison after convicting him of espionage and subversion, the second American it has put behind bars this year.

    Kim Dong Chul had been detained in the North on suspicion of engaging in spying and stealing state secrets. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison with hard labor after a brief trial in Pyongyang. North Korea's Supreme Court found Kim guilty of crimes and espionage and subversion of under Articles 60 and 64 of the North's criminal code.

    Does hard labor mean they're going to shove a kid up his ass and make him push it out?

    Knowing their history on such matters, why on earth would any American go to North Korea? Especially if you are Korean American. This guy needs to go to jail for dumbness.

    My ticket finally got called for the North Korean trip. I'm officially booked for the next tour they have that accepts American passports.

    Stories like this scare the fuck out of me. One minute you're standing in the wrong place or say he wrong thing and the next minute you're taking it up the ass on a jail cell...

    Yeah... I'm literally taking nothing with me except clothes and a wallet with the bare minimum. I've taken some training on how Americans can prepare for their visit. Everything from creating ghost accounts for email, social media, etc to throw off their "researchers" to what backup info you need to carry to get by their "filter" process at the border. If they don't feel right about you, they come up with bullshit reasons to deny you by saying you lack the proper documentation. They also taught me how they screen for electronic devices and directed me toward some devices that I can use to bypass their processes if I want pictures. They also pay top dollar for photos. I bought these cool "button cams" that are fully mechanical and undetectable. There are also microphones that are flexible threads that are just woven into fabric. They emit no emp, and store data in a small device that hides easily in a hem.

    This is for pleasure. It's a great big world
    Out there.. Gotta experience it.

    I've already prepared my info package and have become intimately familiar with my state, local and us representatives. I also prepared a 5-minute piece with the help of a local newspaper to cover some local public service activities.

    Problem is, they keep delaying. The tour company only does 52 tours a year and only 4 of those are the special "American passport" tours. They keep deferring the American ones. I have dual citizenship with us/Canada, but that trick doesn't work as well anymore.

    Why would anyone want to go there. Either a Bible thumper or a do good liberal who thinks their system is just as good as ours, just different. Now the state department has to work to try to get him home.
    Lesson learned from this, stay the fuck out of 3rd world dictatorships.

    Jesus Christ...who the fuck needs to go to North Korea to experience the world?

    Really??? Fucking really? I guess you are way more evolved than my simple self.

    I'll vacation in non third world and/or communist shitholes. I think that leaves me with a few options
