A Three Hour Tour...

North Korea Seizes South Korean Fishing Vessel

Uh oh. Things are heating up in Asia. A few weeks ago a South Korean vessel sank or was sunk under very suspicious circumstances and now the Dear Leader's forces have seized a South Korean flagged fishing boat with seven people onboard. Even if they did accidentally stray into the North's territorial waters this seizure is an escalation that the world does not need. Assuming the thing actually was a commercial, civilian vessel and not some undercover spy ship, which is very unlikely, Mr. Kim should release at least the crew if not the boat as well. We have enough headaches around the world and a war between the Koreas would draw us in and stretch our military forces beyond the breaking point.
