“The relevant organ of the DPRK decided to expel Travis King, a soldier of the U.S. Army who illegally intruded into the territory of the DPRK, under the law of the Republic,” KCNA said. The report said the investigation into King “has been finished.”

King made his escape prior to boarding a plane to take him back to Fort Bliss, where he was expected to be separated from the military after being charged with assault. Naturally, North Korea saw a propaganda bonanza in King’s defection.

‘Something’ tells me the NORKs didn’t want to put up with him either, considering how little media ever covered him…

Once again proving the grass is not ‘always’ greener on the other side of the fence. Any bets on how skinny he is when he comes back?

    • Yes, we are still at war with Korea, sort of.

      The Korean War Memorial still accepts time served in The War as 30 days continuous or 60 days overall served ‘in theater.’ Or at least did about 10 years ago.

  1. I hope China Joe didn’t give the Norks any concessions for this guy. I was perfectly OK with him staying in the North for the rest of his life. Kinda sounds like the DPRK found him as unpalatable as the U.S Army.

  2. Can’t we refuse to take him back?
    Expired warranty or no receipt?

    • Nothing about this whole situation makes sense on the face of it.

  3. This jerk should be face a treason charge and trial for defecting to a known enemy of the US, be given a DH discharge, and a suitable prison term. He is lucky he lives in a liberal time period. In the 1940s and earlier he may have faced a firing squad.

  4. Not always greener?!? Pretty much never!
    And if it looks greener, there is something you don’t know about it. It might be fake, fertilized with manure, painted, etc…

  5. All- Yep, this one is ‘strange’ from the git go. And concur, he’s lucky this wasn’t during wartime.

    • It is. Just this administration is squishy on following rules, especially against certain minorities.

      I mean, a real administration would have had Bergdahl or that tranny locked up in Leavenworth or dangling on the end of a rope. But we haven’t had a real administration (especially in the Pentagon) for years. (of course, notice that none of this crap happened when Trump was president? coincidence? Well, except for all the Pentawonks pulling a full-scale coup againt Trump.)

    • The ROK-U.S. alliance is an alliance of values, standing together to safeguard the universal value of freedom.” Despite the cessation of hostilities between North and South Korea brought on by the 1953 armistice, a peace treaty has never been signed.

  6. We don’t know if whatever he did over there would meet actual treason charges, but he’s got at least desertion, & desertion to contact a foreign military. Hell, a prosecutor with a sense of humor could charge him as a mercenary; wouldn’t fly, but circumstances might allow it, if stretched a bit.

  7. I’m actually surprised that we didn’t find him floating face down in the river. There is a past history of that.
