The U.S. State Department needs to restrict Americans from going to N. Korea. It is not a “destination”, unless you enjoy North Korean communism.

How about we arrest Dennis Rodman and send him to Guantanamo, then trade him to North Korea for these three idiots?

Why would anyone want to go to North Korea is beyond me. It seems as if you would only be asking for trouble in a troubled Country run by an Idiot.

The website of the US Department of State clearly warns travelers of the arbitrary nature of the North Korean government. What more does it need to say? These tourists got what they asked for when they tempted the fates and went there anyway. For what purpose, who knows. It is a great big world out there and travel is the best education one can pursue. Pick a country that will welcome you and stay away from the ones that do not want you there. Again, common sense is not so common.
