  • Trump should tell N. Korea to return the USS Pueblo

    This is something Trump should do. The USS Pueblo, still officially in commission as a US Navy vessel sits in North Korea as a museum to their arrogance.

    At the moment, I see other things far more important In talks with Kim then returning a symbol of the failure of Johnson and the Democrats to defend our interests in International Waters.

    Even though Revision Historians are claiming it was an over reaction, President Ford promptly sent in military forces to rescue the crewman taken by the Cambodians from the USS Mayaguez that was hijacked from the high seas. https://www.history.com/this-day-in-...ayaguez-seized

      Get it straight! It's not the USS Mayaguez. Rescued 39 crew at the cost of 41 Marines. Read your link!

          I seriously doubt that the Pueblo could make the trip. Her hall must be pretty bad by now and I can't imagine North Korea has spent much on maintenance.

          If she were returned, though, she would end up as a symbol of our failure to act on our own behalf.

            JOHN, THE USS LIBERTY WAS NEVER CAPTURED. ISRAEL ATTACKED IT BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID THAT JOHNSON WAS GOING TO PASS ON CRITICAL INTEL TO THE ARABS. THE ISRAELIS SETTLED THE MATTER YEARS LATER. THE EXCUSE OF NOT KNOWING WHAT SHIP WAS PURE BS. THREE FLAGS WERE SHOT OFF THE FANTAIL. THIS IS ONE OF THEM THAT SURVIVES TODAY.



            OF COURSE IT COST LIVES TO RESCUE THE CREW OF THE MAYAGUEZ. WHAT WAS THE US SUPPOSE TO DO? LET THEM BE POLITICAL PRISONERS LIKE THE CREW OF THE PUEBLO WAS FOR YEARS? MAKE THE U.S. LOOK WEAK TO THE REST OF THE WORLD LIKE JOHNSON AND OBAMA DID?

            WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, HOW ABOUT CRITICIZING OUR ATTACKING THE BARBERRY PIRATES OF NORTH AFRICA, THOSE MUSLIMS THAT WERE KIDNAPPING U.S. AND OTHER SAILORS FOR SLAVES DURING THE EARLY YEARS OF THE FORMATION OF THE US! DON'T FORGET TO CRITICIZE US NAVAL INVOLVEMENT IN RESCUING CAPTURED CREW MEMBERS FROM HIJACKED SHIPS OFF THE HORN OF AFRICA AS WELL?

            The Mayaguez. was a registered US merchant ship at the time of its hijacking.

            Go defend the Democrats over "The accusation is proof enough," when it comes to destroying nominees for the Supreme Court.

            The Liberty has since been scrapped.

              Meh...much more important things for the president to be concerned about. Asking for the boat would make it appear a childish and petty demand. Regardless of which circumstances the ship was captured, the Norks consider it a war trophy. Most nations having a long history of warring has one or more war trophies. How many does the US have?

              Every so often, almost by tradition, a group in Texas makes a demand to the Mexican government on having the Alamo flag returned. Mexico finally made a counter offer that the flag would be returned if the wooden prosthetic of Santa Anna was returned in exchange (it is in some musrum in Springfield IL.). The offer has been rejected on more than one occassion.

              Let war trophies remain where they are, there are more pressing issues. I'd rather the Norks relinquish their nukes than a thinning, rusting hulk of a boat.
