For whatever reason they waited half a year but dead is dead
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/22/world/asia/north-korea-james-dresnok-defector-soldier.html

  If you haven't seen Crossing the Line,you should. Dresnok was utterly loathesome and deserves not the least bit of sympathy.

Surprised he lasted this long. Now who is going to star as the Plutocratic overweight sadistic Army General in Nork cinema?

Fun fact - during his court martial 40+ years after he walked off, he rated, and wore, a GWOT service ribbon on his service uniform.

Charles Jenkins went across the line, they sent him back with his family eventually.  I wonder wtf price the government paid.  Fuck the Norks, pardon my vulgarity.

There were many Americans who went to the USSR in  the 20s and 30s for  ideological reasons and some simply practical to set up,for example, the Ford  factory. Virtually all of them were rounded up and killed or sent to the gulags. The US was well aware of this of course but it wasn't a concern,they weren't America's problem anymore to be blunt.

I cannot state what I want to without letting loose a tirade of bad words.  I stand with Estonia, would love to visit someday.  I remember the video of a legless Estonian jumping off a dock- I will never forget that.  Hell, I might fit in over there.

According to a 2014 United Nations report on human rights in the North, the Dresnoks’ mother was Doina Bumbea, a Romanian woman who is believed to have been lured to North Korea in 1978. After Ms. Bumbea died of cancer in 1997, Mr. Dresnok is said to have married another woman and had a third son.

The United Nations report said that “women abducted from Europe, the Middle East and Asia were subjected to forced marriages with men from other countries to prevent liaisons on their part with ethnic Korean women that could result in interracial children.”

I've also read that Great Leader had a plan to breed a spy network that wasn't obviously of Korean nationality.

We should encourage more lefties to flee to Norkland so they may enjoy the full benefits of socialist life.    Why not Venezuela?  Because it's too darn close and they may be able to return here.

There were actually people here wailing & getting drunk when Ronaldus Magnus defeated the evil empire.   Apparently in Commieland, there were those who liked the "no matter how much of a fuckup I am, I'll still get fed" thing, and they also mourned the passing of Commienism.  Some people are just born slaves.

My dad was stationed in Korea in the 60s. He said they were well aware of Jenkins and his fellow deserters and that the Bn commander said that anyone who saw a white guy on the wrong side in wrong uniform should shoot him and they would make it right.

He didn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed, add to that a shitty life as well as an impending court martial, and his decision makes a bit more sense.  Dumb and traitorous, but I can see how he was suckered in by the propaganda.

He spent the rest of his life beating other deserters (so a meh on that), making propaganda and raping kidnapped women. Fuck this guy, we should have had him killed back when we could have done so without starting WW3.
