However, it would not surprise me if the N. Koreans have a stockpile of American remains. They know where the most severe battles occurred and where to look, and it is not like they don't have enough slave labor to do the digging.

This is serious business. Recovery of our soldiers is very important to Americans, and the N. Koreans are well aware of this. They will continue to use this as leverage for as long as they deem necessary. My wife's uncle fought in that war and the impact on him has not been lost in her family. He came home. Those who didn't deserve to rest in peace on American soil, not on a shelve in some NK warehouse.

Maybe I'm wrong about all of the above, and I sincerely apologize if I am. But the N. Korean government are hardly people of good character.

But to my point, returning the Pueblo would be a propaganda bonanza for them and put to rest a thorn that has been in America's side for a long time. Of course Pvt. Bone Spurs would take all the credit but in this case I could live with that.
