    so the US is confessing to be a weak country. By blocking this man contract to keep an embargo against a whole country I can see a merge of different subjects. One man alone shouldn't be an issue between 2 countries. Plus, North Korea keeps receiving a bunch of luxury items so what embargo is everybody talking? The recent sanctions talk about stopping those luxury items... why were they not stopped before?

    I wonder if there are men, women, and children like Michael who have dreams that we all have but can't fulfill them because of political reasons. I'm sure there are and hope that they are not in the same plight as Michael was 15 years ago. Even though political matters are still important, we need to stop focusing on the politics and focus on the people.
