A possible fair trade with N. Korea

Last week the U.S. seized a N. Korean cargo ship. N. Korea is obviously demanding we return it.

I suggest a trade: The cargo ship for the return of the U.S.S. Pueblo. This Pueblo was attacked and captured by the N. Koreans in Jan. 1968. The ship had 83 crew members, one of whom was killed in an attack while the ship was attempting to avoid a boarding by the N. Koreans. It is the second oldest commissioned ship U.S. Navy. At present it is being used as a museum and propaganda tool by the N. Koreans.

The Pueblo no longer has any military value, whereas the N. Korean has considerable commercial value. A win-win.

You can read the Pueblo story at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Pueblo_(AGER-2). The N. Koreans treatment of our military personnel is particularly poignant.
