North Korea Is Not Playing With Your Ass!!
Matt | On 27, Aug 2010
Yesterday, the U.S. State Department issued a travel warning against U.S. residents attempting to visit Depression Paradise (a.k.a. North Korea).
Now, I’m nobody’s travel agent, but you know good and damn well that most people are not thinking about North Korea like that. Did anyone catch what happened to journalist Lisa Ling’s sister and her friend? Bill Clinton had to go over there and rescue those two ladies from a lifetime of near-Jim Crow slave labor. NOT. HAPPENING. FOR. THE. KID.
The latest warning was issued after former President Jimmy Carter traveled to get American prisoner Aijalon Mahli Gomes out of an eight-year sentence of hard labor in North Korea. He was able to successfully get Gomes out of the country, engage in a few pleasantries with dignitaries there, then get himself up outta dodge before the North Koreans turned on him. At age 148, Jimmy just doesn’t have the time like he did before to play with Communist regimes. Sorry.
That brings me to my point. People, PLEASE do not think that you’re going to start vacationing in North Korea anytime soon. If you find yourself in China or South Korea, do not cross the border dummy! It’s not like the U.S. where you can go across state lines because you want to play your lottery numbers in the next state over. Do your homework. Anyone who even places a foot (literally) on North Korean soil without their permission is going down.
North Korea is a place where they can’t even keep the lights on at night. Many of their people are going hungry because the government can’t provide any resources. But, they have a bomb ass military! That means they can’t wine and dine you, but they surely can strike the fire of God into you. Stay away.
