If you pull on the tiger’s tail you better have a plan for his teeth.
These ladies weren’t thinking when they pulled on the tail (even if they were not on the NK side of an invisible line).
Al Gore, or whomever they report to internally at the liberal “Current TV” network in San Francisco, bears some responsibility—if you want to know what I think. They were obviously not trained on escape/evasion or the real realities of what happens if you get too close to the tiger—and also have a San Francisco American metrosexual colleague bug out on you just as the Norkies are grabbing you and taking advantage of your female weakness. I believe a British paper referred to them as “backpacker journalists” or into “backpacking journalism”. This carries many risks. Going anywhere NEAR that border had having a sister who had earlier done an expose (hidden camera, etc) within North Korea had to be asking for trouble. What can you say? Kids do the darndest things; you still love them and try to get them out of a jam.
