    Ashton Kutcher calls for special ops action against North Korea

    Ashton Kutcher has demanded American politicians race to free two US journalists convicted for illegally entering North Korea, insisting Monday's shock news of their imprisonment is "a national crisis".
    The actor is among those outraged by reports Laura Ling and Euna Lee have been sentenced to 12 years behind bars.
    The two Current TV reporters were found guilty of committing "a grave crime" against North Korea, and Kutcher took to his Twitter.com blog to appeal for help on the two journalists' behalf.
    He writes, "This should be a national crisis... We have to demand that something be done."
    Kutcher went so far as to suggest the US military should get involved, adding, "I say it’s special ops time… If we can save that Captain (Capt. Richard Phillips) from (Somalian) pirates, we can save these journalist (sic)."
    Ling and Lee were reporting about the trafficking of North Korean women when they were arrested near the China-North Korea border on 17 March.

    We should have destroyed their military bases and nuclear capability before they launched their first test missile - And issue an ultimatum that the bombing on the Capital will commence in 24 hours if the girls aren't returned unharmed.

    Unfortunately, I have a feeling that a rescue mission will just result in more hostages. The girls were stupid for even going there, so we really can't afford to back down out of fear of killing them in the process of preventing a nuclear threat on the US, but we can try to do both at the same time.

    We're still just in a cease fire with them, much as we were with Iraq. They obviously learned nothing from Iraq.

    I am not much of a student of world politics, but I have to wonder if North Korea is trying to push some buttons and start a fight for some reason. I can't see the benefit to them if they are.

    I guess the special ops response is the trendy option now days. I would take a different approach.

    Dear North Korea,

    If you return our two citizens we will let you keep your navy. You have thirty minutes.

    We should petition the UN the send out a resolution condemning their actions, and threatening further reprimands if they don't comply. Yeah.. that'll do it.

    Sounds good to me.

    Never could quite get over why most of these Hollywood actor liberal nutjobs think that just because their famous means that we want to listen to their spiel.

    Eh....liberal or not - doesn't make them any more qualified to comment on world affairs than you or I. While refreshing to hear a non-liberal view from Hollyweird, that still doesn't mean I give it any more credence than the drivel that comes out of liberal mouths.

    Well Ashton, how about you get your pooter down to MEPS and get your ass to boot. Then you go fight the NoComs. Speaking from your pooter while boinking someone old enough to be your mother ain't impressing me much.

    Suppose North Korea would do an even trade for Ashton and Demi?

    Seems to me everyone wins that way.
