1. He might have been kidnapped and didn't want to say publicly for fear his family would be hurt. All people have limits on their courage and the Nork have ways of pressuring any statement out of folks...

2. The US might try to use this situation to avoid provoking the Nork and bring them back to the Six-Party Talks...


Very tricky situation...

My instincts tell me that Jenkins was kidnapped and that he is telling the truth about his fated years spent in NK; however the only difficulty is that the US army found a letter in his barracks stating that he was going to defect. If this can be made more clear by Jenkins, all will be well.

From what I read I am willing to give this guy the benefit of the doubt for now. His trial will be very interesting but I don't see him doing jail time.

I agree with GI Korea. As far as I know, Jenkins has never asked or begged for special treatment or forgiveness from America. He did what he did some 40 years ago, and now he's willing to face the music.

I say give the guy a slap on the wrist and let him be.

Learn how to spell, idiot. Such post only demean Korean and Koreans. Show some pride for a change.

I always found it ironic that those who were harshest on Jenkins (throw the UCMJ at him! Let him rot!) were those who had never been anywhere near the military in their life - except maybe as a guest, to eat on base - while the military people I know were if not sympathetic, at least merciful.

I-D-I-O-T. IDIOT. See I can spell IDIOT. But Gimchipig, you are still gimchipig.

I can be consoled in that the Korean kids I know here in Canada are highly intelligent and motivated to learn and do well for themselves and their families.

However, they are not "Netizens."

mr kimchipig, do the parents of the young korean children you hang around with know you are "hanging around". That sounds very creepy sir. Perhaps you should consiter hanging out with people your age.

fastfreddy

Maybe that kimchipig is a "pedo". or maybe he has stunted emotional growth and hanging out with children is all he can handle. In either way its bizarre.
