50. If a man who worked for Nazi Germany had done this...

I can't imagine anyone here not understanding why, or suggesting that the defector should have faced "Nazi Justice". The North Korean Regime is not really so different from Hitler's, except that they lack the money, political and military power that the Nazis had. From what I know of the region - from what I've read of it, I can't say I'd blame the man for doing what he did. Some horrors are too much to live with, some times it's a choice that really is all about saving your soul.

What I wonder, is why this man made this decision now? What put him in that position?

The idea that he should return to North Korea to face justice, or that there is even any such thing as justice in North Korea... is absurd.
