Interesting - just like something out of a movie. A North Korean guard killed his superiors[^], then defected to South Korea.

Technically speaking, the two countries are still at war, and "all's fair..." as the saying goes. But the guy admits to committing what would be classified as murder for a civilian in a civilized country. Not wanting to start a political discussion, let's keep it civil - I'm curious about world opinion, and we have a great cross-section here. Do you think South Korea should give him back to stand trial, or risk elevating the "war" by giving him asylum?

If I was making the decision, I honestly don't know what I'd do.Confused | :confused:

So, no discussion here, just vote:

1. Send him back.
3. I dunno, I'm confused, too.
5. Protect him at all cost.
Will Rogers never met me.
