First of all: Please keep this free of politics, because this is a serious question from me that I have been thinking about for the past several days:
Is whatever-this-new-thing-is between North Korea and the United States going to benefit Americans (including the Mormon missionary we know about) who were kidnapped (mostly when they were on hiking trails in China)?
The Mormon missionary we know about has been reported to be living near Kim Jong Un, and teaching him English. He is reported to be now married to a citizen of North Korea, and is reported to be the father of children born of that marriage.
It is my understanding that there are other, "unrelated" Americans who have also been kidnapped and are living in North Korea.
Is there any real, viable, chance that these Americans might be able to come home to the United States?
Plus: what about those of other nationalities, most of them ALSO hikers on those trails in China, who news reports I read months ago said were similarly kidnapped? Are there Canadians among them? Brits? Other nationals of EU countries, or of other countries in the Americas?
Again: Please keep this politics-free. The situation has changed now, the facts are as they are, and we go from here.
This is reality--I am just wondering if we might be able to make this new reality work to the benefit of a number of people (beginning with that Mormon missionary) who were captured by the North Koreans and have been held, ever since, in North Korea.
