But in this case, it has to be posturing to make more news. What’s their future? They’ll be pawns in some kind of trade so North Korea will save their faces. It’s odd how the news only recently picked up energy. Is it because of the vigils? The news picked up before the sentencing, and now it’s headline news – when it should have been this entire time. It’s been months of them not being seen in public.
