Judge awards $65 million to USS Pueblo crew
By PETER ROPER
THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN | Posted: Thursday, January 1, 2009 12:00 am
The former crew of the USS Pueblo had its day in court this week when U.S. District Judge Henry Kennedy Jr. ordered North Korea to pay three crewmen, as well as the estate of former Cmdr. Lloyd Bucher, more than $65 million in damages for the torture they endured during 11 months of captivity in 1968.
The court decision, which was handed down Tuesday in Washington, D.C., may be all the crew members ever receive in terms of actual payment, but Kennedy said the plaintiffs had demonstrated they were subjected to "extensive and shocking" treatment by their North Korean captors, abuse that affects them to this day.
The USS Pueblo was a small Navy spy ship that was seized by North Korean patrol boats on Jan. 23, 1968.
One of the crew, Fireman Duane Hodges, was killed in the attack. The other 82 crew members were held prisoners for 11 months. During that time, the men frequently were beaten and tortured, and even put through mock executions.
The lawsuit against North Korea was filed by crew members William Thomas Massie, Donald R. McClarren, Dunnie Richard Tuck and Mrs. Rose Bucher, on behalf of her late husband's estate. Lloyd "Pete" Bucher, the commander of the Pueblo, died in 2004. Normally, foreign governments are immune from lawsuits in U.S. courts, except that Congress created an exception for nations that are identified as sponsoring terrorism. That exception allowed the Pueblo crewmen to file the lawsuit in 2006.
North Korea never responded to the suit, leaving Kennedy to take testimony from the plaintiffs and then enter a judgment.
Kennedy awarded the four crew members in the lawsuit $10,000 a day for their 11 months of captivity (amounting to $3.3 million each), plus $13.4 million each for continued pain and suffering after their release. Mrs. Bucher was awarded $1.25 million separately, as well as the award to her late husband's estate.
In his decision, Kennedy detailed the crew members physical injuries while captured and the permanent aftereffects, starting with post-traumatic stress disorder and continuing through damaged spines, arms and legs, hearing loss and chronic pain.
"In this case, Massie, Tuck, and McClarren suffered physical and mental harm that has endured for the past 39 years and likely will continue to endure throughout the rest of their lives," Kennedy wrote. "Cmdr. Bucher suffered such effects until he died."
Efforts to contact the crew members who won the judgment were unsuccessful Wednesday, but Alvin Plucker, a crew member who lives in Fort Lupton, said the court decision was satisfying.
"All of us knew that any kind of lawsuit was going to be a long shot in terms of ever getting anything out of the North Koreans, but it's still nice to stick it to them," Plucker said.
Although the North Koreans released the surviving crew on Dec. 23, 1968, they have kept the Pueblo itself as a war trophy. Congress repeatedly has passed resolutions urging the State Department to press for the release of the ship. Bucher supported that campaign while alive and many of the crew continue to do so.
SURRRE, KIM JONG UN'S GOT 65 TRILLION BUT CHA CAN'T HAVE IT AS HE NEEDS TO BUILD HIS NEW BOMB AND A NEW MISSILE.
Yup, Dr. Kim has 65 trillion in Monopoly money and it's just enough for one bomb and one missile. You better pick your target wisely DUNG!

It is not surprising that with more and more people splashing the cash, the Chinese auto market is now the largest in the world, its luxury goods market is huge and its art market is booming. This is life - albeit for a privileged minority - in the new China and it is one focused on what many observers now see as an increasingly hollow slogan: "Socialism with Chinese characteristics".

Yet those who run the country clearly do not appreciate the irony. Take the incomes of the members of the People's Congress, the official parliament, which meets once a year. The 70 richest members collectively have assets worth over $85bn. This compares favourably to the relatively meagre $5.5bn available to the 70 richest members of Congress in Washington DC.

Yet Wu Renbao, the former party boss of Huaxi, sees no contradiction.“Whatever the ideology - the main thing is that we become rich together," he says. In other words, everyone has an equal opportunity to benefit; all they have to do is work hard.

But not everyone is happy. Economist Zhang Hongliang is an unreconstructed leftist, who warns that China’s leadership may come to rue its love affair with profit.

"Directors of companies shouldn’t be party secretaries. It should be the proletariat providing the secretaries and the directors representing the capitalists. When a person takes on those two roles, one thing is clear: the Communist Party is nothing but a capitalist party through and through,"

French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told a news conference in Brussels that Gao was back under control after clashes earlier in the day.

"Malian troops supported by French soldiers killed five jihadists and the situation is back to normal," he said.

Sounds like the illicit drugs have fried your brain, little Muslim pig. You're actually describing your partner Horse Manure's *cough* I mean Force Majeure's sexual proclivities. LOL...I suppose I'm using too big of words, for your 5th grade education, to afford you to comprehend. Do elaborate on your coveted 613 Muslim laws, you brag about living your life by. Is that why you like cruising schoolyards, cause Sharia law says it's okay as long as it's a little boy, you Muslim trash. <¦-o

HERE'S THE WAY IT WORKS: THE AMERICAN MAFIA'S ALLIES, THE "SUNNI" MUSLIMS, THE CONSERVATIVE RIDGID MUSLIMS WHO WILL NOT CHANGE AND ADAPT, ARE FROM SAUDIA ARABIA, QATAR, KUWAIT, THE UAE, AND ARE THE TERRORIST WING OF WHAT'S CALLED ISLAM, THEY ARE BAD.

THE GOOD MUSLIMS, THE "SHIITE" ARE FROM IRAN, LIBYA, ALGERIA, TUNISIA, IRAQ, PARTS OF NORTHERN SAUDI ARABIA, WHO NOW ARE PROTESTING FOR FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS THERE, WHICH THE MAFIA IN WASHINGTON D.C. OPPOSES. YEP, THE SHIITE MUSLIMS ARE THE ONE'S WHO ADAPT TO THE CHANGING SOCIAL CONDITIONS AND ADAPT TO THE CHANGING TECHNOLOGY, LIKE DRIVING CARS, ROUTINE FOR WOMEN IN IRAN BUT FORBIDDEN FOR WOMEN IN BACKWARD SAUDI ARABIA

AND THEN THERE'S THE ZIONIST-JEW-NAZI CLIQUE IN THE UNITED STATES, WHO OWN AND CONTROL THE MEDIA THERE, ALONG WITH THE SCHOOLS, AND THE WHOLE ECONOMY, AND ARE THE REASON MOST CRITICISM OF THE SUNNI ISAMIC FANTICES IS RESTRICTED, IT'S BECAUSE THEY HAVE ROUGHLY THE SAME SOCIAL VALUES AND OUTLOOK.

NORTH KOREA MILITARY WEAPONS

N. Korea has an annual production capacity for 200,000 AK automatic guns, 3,000 heavy guns, 200 battle tanks, 400 armored cars and amphibious crafts. N. Korea makes it's own submarines, landing crafts, high speed missile boats, and other types of warships. N. Korea has 17 plants for guns and artillery, 35 plants for ammunition, 5 plants for tanks and armored cars, 8 plants for airplanes, 5 plants for communication equipment, and 8 plants for biochemical warheads- 134 plants total. 180 plants are built underground in the rugged mountainous areas of Jagang-do. Several hydro- power plants serve these plants so that it would be nearly impossible for the US to cut off power to the plants.

The US commanders admit that N. Korean soldiers are highly motivated and loyal to Kim Jong Il, and will fight well in case of war. During the Iraq war just ended, the main cause of Iraq's defeat was the low moral of it's soldiers. Iraqi soldiers had no will to stand and fight, and they ran away or surrendered without a fight. N. Korean soldiers are taught to fight to the bitter end.

North Korea's regular consists of 4 corps in the front area, 8 corps in the rear area, one tank corps, 5 armored corps, 2 military corps, and one corps to defend Pyongyang. N. Korea has 80 divisions and brigades, compared to 19 for South Korea. N. Korea's militias consist of 1.6 million self defense units, 100,000 people's guards, 3.9 million workers militia, 900,000 youth guards all fully armed and well military trained.

North Korea has 2 artillery corps and 30 artillery brigades equipped with 120 mm self -propelled guns, 152 mm self propelled mortars, 170mm guns with a range of 50km, 240 mm multiple rocket launchers with a range of 45 km, plus other heavy guns. N. Korea has 18,000 heavy guns. Their 170mm Goksan gun and 240mm multiple-tube rocket launchers are the most powerful guns in the world. The big guns are hidden in caves. They can rain 500,000 conventional and biochemical shells per hour on US troops, who will be obliterated in a matter of hours. N. Korea has one tank corps and 15 tank brigades. The tank corps has 5 regiments, each with 4 heavy tank battalions, one light-tank battalion. One infantry battalion, and 2 self propelled artillery battalions. N. Korea's main battle tanks-T-62s- have 155mm guns and can travel 60km per hour.

N. Korea's anti-tank missiles are rated the best in the world. The US army in Korea relies on 72 AH-64 Apache attack helicopters to kill N. Korean tanks. Apaches are very fragile and can easily be shot down even with rifles. N. Korea has over 15,000 shoulder- fired anti-air missiles. N. Korea has 700,000 troops, 8,000 heavy guns, and 2,000 tanks in more than 4,000 hardened bunkers

YEP, THE DPR OF KOREA HAS MOBILE ICBMS WITH A RANGE OF AT LEAST 6,000 MILES WITH ENOUGH NUCLEAR WEAPONS TO PUT THE LIGHTS OUT FOR GOOD IN THE UNITED STATES OF AEMR ICA
