Swift punishment for North Korea
Re “American held by N. Korea dies,” June 20
The retribution for the death of 22-year-old Otto Warmbier days after he returned to the U.S. from a North Korean prison must be swift and sure.
This horrible tragedy resulted from Warmbier’s alleged removal of a propaganda poster, no more than a college prank. I can only imagine the suffering endured by his family and was brought to tears by their description of the peace that had come over his face, even in a coma, as he realized that he was home.
As a nation, we really need to put the screws on North Korea with every imaginable sanction worthy of the psychotic despots who head that government. In the meantime, I send my prayers and deepest condolences to Warmbier’s grieving family. Stephen Fox
