Otto Warmbier, American student released by North Korea, is in a coma
Pyongyang, North Korea (CNN)American college student Otto Warmbier has been released after more than 17 months in detention in North Korea but has been in a coma for over a year, according to his parents.
They go into a hostile environment in which the mere fact that they are American Citizens makes them an immediate target for extortion, murder perhaps, and certainly political persecution. I do not understand why they would want to do that, except without recourse. It is kind of like them being at the zoo. Once they climb the fence into the lion's pen, figuratively speaking, they have no one but themselves to blame when the lion attacks. If the kettle on the stove is known to be hot, why do they want to touch it to find out? Those Regimes are not our friends. Maybe more light will be shed by others in the decision to just stay home.
We have all made mistakes, the brain isn't fully developed till near 30 from what I hear.
This much punishment for a youthful indiscretion is sick.
A coma may be a part of how G-d worked to get him out of that pest hole.
Prayers continuing for all involved.
