In case you didn’t know The Huffington Post wrote the following after Otto was convicted: “North Korea proves your white male privilege is not universal. “ The liberal media disgusts me. It could be a story about the Boy Scouts of America and in one way or another they’d attempt to put in the article the words: “white privilege” because they can’t help themselves. And they get mad when they’re accused of liberal bias in their reporting. Why anyone who wants the truth about what’s going on here and around the world would subscribe to the Huffington Post is beyond me especially considering Adrianna Huffington is a huge supporter of the Democrat Party.
I’ve heard many political pundits talk about what we’re going to do to North Korea for this terrible act. The fact is, we have no intelligent options to make them suffer for what they did. We don’t conduct trade with them so we have no economic sanctions that can be applied. Only China does enough business with North Korea to put a dent in them economically and they said in good faith, whatever that is, that they did try to get Otto and three other Americans released from North Korea and that Kim Jung-un wouldn’t do it.
The bottom line is we aren’t going to use military might to attack North Korea over this young man losing his life. If we haven’t already attacked them for attempting to arm themselves with nuclear weapons, why would we do it because of what they did to Otto? We can’t even prove for sure what they did to him unless some hidden video pops up or someone from North Korea confesses to abusing him which we know won’t happen.
It’s so easy for these pundits to sit back and talk big about us defending our citizens using various methods but then there’s reality. We won’t do anything significant because it’s not a smart move. The best thing we can do is use this as a lesson for anyone from the United States considering travelling to North Korea, to pick another travel destination.
