Body Language Shows Otto Warmbier Did Not Steal Banner and Was Used by North Korea to Teach USA a Lesson About Their Cruelty As He Returns in A Coma and Dies

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 9.02.37 PM

There is nothing more  tragic  than what happened to  22 year young college student Otto Warmbier who had a beautiful future ahead of him.  He has died of a brain injury where the oxygen was cut off to his brain and the brains cells began to degenerate leaving him essentially a vegetable.North Koreans said he was in a coma for a year because of botulism ( the same thing botox is made of) and that he took s sleeping pill. Doctors in the US who examined his comatose body thoroughly and  said there was no trace of botulism but that his air supply was cut off causing the brain damage.

The propaganda by the North Koreans was that he stole a banner. They gave some cockamaimie reason that Warmboer did it for the church and on a $200 bet. This is ridiculous according to his father Fred Warmbier in that he wasn’t a member of the church and certainly did not need $200 to win a  bet. That sounds like something a naive Korean propagandist would make up.

As we learn more and more about Otto we see he was a super bright young man who never even had a fight. he was not a trouble maker.

After again reviewing the tapes of his allegedly stealing a banner, in light of what we know of Otto, I have doubts that he did so.  It seems very mechanical and staged. It is my view that perhaps he was made to do this by the North Koreans, who then filmed him. I believe he was singled out because of his height. he was the only one in the group who could easily reach the banner and take it down.

Look at the photo of him with some of his fellow students who were on the trip with him in North Korea. Observe his height and his presence.

Now look what Warmbier does with the banner. he places it down on the ground. To me that seems odd. If he was planning to steal it he would not have put it on the ground in a mechanical methodical way. Instead he would have folded it under his arm and quickly walked away. But that is not what happened

From what we know, he was a very intelligent young man and has never been in trouble or even had a fight according to his father. Usually when people steal banners or commit acts of vandalism they don’t do it quietly. They do it in the presence of others as a form of showing off. His walk is too mechanical for this to be anything other than a staged attempt in my view by the North Koreans to show he did something wrong.

His apology was a performance  as his father admitted in his presser.   But nevertheless he was in sheer terror as he did what he was supposed to do- apologize for his act which no doubt the North Koreans staged.  His praying above was real and his face shows he is in terror. As he looks up to pray to God he says ” Save this poor innocent scapegoat.” He is in essence telling us that he was used as a scapegoat by the Koreans to show how bad the Americans are and to detain him and punish him as a symbol of punishing the US.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 8.54.47 PM.png

Look at his face. he is in anguish. He knows exactly what will happen and he is devastated.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 8.56.00 PM.pngHe bows down not only as a symbol of “apology” to the North Koreans that he was forced to make, but also in resignation of his fate.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 8.58.56 PM.pngHe did what the North Koreans told him to do and made a public apology which he read and which the North Koreans, no  doubt wrote for him to say. In this photo you can see the script that he was no doubt forced to read.  His father said that he was proud of his son’s performance as that is exactly what it was. Look at Warmbier in this photo. He is alert and his skin tone is flush and his eyes are open and bright.

As he apologies he is in tears as he is forced to say what never happened and apologizing for something he was told to do by the North Koreans. Look at his right wrist , To me it looks bruised as though he was placed into tight handcuffs.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 9.02.01 PM

As he stands up and realizes he will be going into a hard labor camp, the realization hits him hard and he is in mental and emotional agony.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 9.02.37 PM

As soon as Warmbier is taken out of the courtroom his skin tone has changed. He is more pale. he is subdued as though he may have been given a shot or a pill to calm him down as  he is dragged by these two North Korean enforcers and Warmbier can barely stand on his feet. He can barely walk.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 9.10.07 PM.pngHis devastated parents were told nothing and were not allowed to have any contact with him. the Obama administration told them to lay low and they did NOTHING to inform the parents as to what was going on or to help get their son released. The father n essence said that he holds Obama and his administration responsible for not doing anything to help their son. They were only told a week ago that their son had been in a coma for a year. This in my view is unconscionable and cruel and inhumane. But that is exactly what Kim Jung Un wanted to do. he wanted to show how cruel he could be on the world stage and he succeeded. It was only through the efforts  of the Trump administration and Rex Tillerson  that Otto Warmbier was released to his parents.  Unfortunately, he was released to them  as a comatose vegetable instead of the vibrant son they once knew.

Screen Shot 2017-06-19 at 8.57.37 PM.pngIf you look at Otto on his arrival he looks pale and cannot move on his own. Apparently though medical tests it was revealed  that he would not see or hear and that there was extensive brain damage. His father said that when he arrived his face showed a lot of tension but when he settled in at the hospital and his mother was at his side along with his father  his face relaxed. Obviously he was given a  lot of touch and made to feel comfortable- something he was deprived of for over a year in North Korea. Whatever brain cells he had left in terms of hearing and feeling, he knew he was with those he loved him and his facial muscles and body language responded.

The brain damage was so extensive that there was no way Otto could recover, so his parents made the agonizing decision to let him go. No parent should ever have to make this decision, but in Otto’s case, there was no hope and no chance of recovery whatsoever. The damage done to him in North Korea was so massive, he could not be rehabilitated. Perhaps his systems were shutting down as well.

Perhaps the parents took him off life support and gave life support of his organs to those who could use them like donating his heart, liver,  kidneys, eyes, lungs, pituitary gland, ear bones, and skin. Perhaps they gave others a gift of life through Otto so that Otto could live on through them. But we will never know at this point.

May this precious young man forever rest in peace and may his legacy be an example to every American who travels abroad. Do NOT go to countries where the Department of State reports there is danger. Do not listen to any advertisements from any other country telling you it is safe to go there when the Department of State says the opposite.

I have no doubt that Otto Warmbier was singled out and  used as a political pawn to be used as an example of what North Koreans are capable of doing. If you have that gene that makes you live on life’s razor’s edge and want excitement, find it elsewhere, not in North Korea or in countries where the Department of State tells you to beware.

Disturbing Body Language of Virginia College Student Sentenced to Hard Labor In North Korea

 

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 9.57.03 PM.png

After watching the videotapes  and analyzing the body language of  U of Virginia student Otto Wambier arrested in North Korea, I noticed some things that were very disturbing that didn’t sit right with me in terms of his body language. Also there were many questions that arose following his capture which leads me to believe he was singled out and used as propaganda against the US. When Otto is seated his facial language shows that he appears alert as you can see in the photo above.

When Otto is  first seated  during his one hour trial in North Korea his facial language shows that he appears alert and connected as to what is going on.

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 9.58.57 PM

When we watch what appears to be evidence of his alleged actions on the video the North Korean court provided, we do not actually see Otto committing the crime. We only see him walking in the direction where there was a banner in front of a wall. Then a photo is shown of the same wall without the banner. But  most important of all, the tape does not show him doing anything to the banner, like taking it down.

Then we see him confessing to his alleged crime where his body language shows fake alligator tears and over the top expressions of grief and sadness as his expressions are fleeting and there is not enough recovery time from one emotion to the next. Ther are also no tears that he is wiping away. Perhaps this over the top performance was designed to get his North Korean judgers to give him some sympathy. It clearly didn’t work.

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 8.22.42 AM

His verbal apology sounded fake and forced and contrived as he cried alligator tears. He was theatrical as he stood up and made an over the top performance. A He even blames the US government for putting him up to this , which clearly shows how he has been manipulated by the North Korans. No American  would ever believe that another American would  publicly denounce their government when they are just a tourist in another country and then say that the US government manipulated him into stealing the banner.  s you can see below he was immediately led out by  one Korean guard as soon as the verdict was read.

As you can see below, Otto was immediately led out by  one Korean guard as soon as the verdict was read.

He also looks to his right  side  as he is lead out of the courtroom by  that one guard. He seems to be uttering something. Is he speaking to the man in the suit standing against the wall? Is he speaking to the cameras pointed in his direction to document his ordeal?

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 8.27.33 AM

Then what you see if very disturbing as he is flanked by two robotic looking, emotionless guards. You see him led out with his eyes closed. It is as though he is walking but he is sleeping at the same time. Note  that his head is  initially still up. The color has also left his face as he suddenly  looks very pale.

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 8.27.44 AM

Immediately,  his head drops further as though he is unconscious. It is not just that he is looking down. The fact that his head is down so low, sitting on his chest indicates  to me that perhaps he is in some type of altered state. Was he drugged so that he did not shout anything out and reveal his true thoughts and feelings as he was lead away? The guards also notice the sudden change in his body. The one on the left looks directly at him for the first time and the one on the right suddenly turns his head in Otto’s direction as well. Were they expecting to see Otto in his new state? Did they inject him with something that finally revealed it’s effects? Otto’s fingers splayed as well and look way too relaxed for the circumstances he is under.

Did the North Koreans drug Otto to keep him quiet when he was in front of the media? What will his life be like when the drugs wear off? Will he be beaten as was reported to be the case with so many prisoners? Will he be put in isolation away from others or will he be treated well and remain unharmed so that he could be used as a  bargaining chip during any negotiations with the Americans.

There are  many questions that arise following his capture which leads me to believe he may have been singled out and used as propaganda against the US.Having described his  peculiar body language during his trial and frightening body language of being dragged away to a prison camp for 15 years,  many  puzzling questions arise.

1.Why would he take a banner off of a wall?   Where were all the other young people  with him when he was allegedly taking the banner off of the wall when he was allegedly   drinking vodka until 5 AM?  Usually this type of activity would be in a group activity of people getting rowdy  together and destroying and/or taking property. This makes me wonder if in fact this banner was planted in his luggage, especially since he was the last one to have his luggage checked.

2.How was the alcohol so available to him and where were all the other young people  with him when he was allegedly taking the banner off of the wall when he was  drinking vodka until 5 AM?  Since everything is so strict in North Korea,  especially for tourists, was he purposely plied with alcohol?  Was he not with other students when he was drinking? Was he the only one that was given a supply of liquor?  Where are the other students who were allegedly drinking with him just given soft drinks? Why have these fellow students not come forth to be interviewed? And most of all, was he even given liquor at all or is that all a part of the North Korean propaganda machine?

3. Why would he choose to go to North Korea which was supposedly his first trip out of his home country? This was the question posed by an Irish man who was on the same trip with Wombier and who was interviewed by journalists.It certainly is odd that one’s first trip would not be to a dream location like London or Paris or to a study abroad program in South or Central America or even Russia or  China. But to choose a remote location that the State Department warns tourists to not visit, is very odd- especially for young students.

4. The tour operator  was apparently frantically running up and down the plane , according to witnesses telling the stewardess that they were missing Otto, The witness  told reporters “The tour operator eventually got through to Otto on the phone. He said to her that he didn’t want to leave and had a headache and that he wanted to go to hospital.  She  preferred him to get on the plane and go to a hospital in China….He hung up the phone and that was the last they heard of him. There was a frantic search when they landed in China.”

This entire account strikes me as very odd. First of all, how did the tour guide get to Otto on the phone?  Wasn’t his cell phone immediately confiscated when he was detained by guards and how does a technologically  unsophisticated country suddenly have wifi in their airport when it is such a hassle to get wifi in sophisticated airports around the world? Also that is very odd that he allegedly told the tour guide that he didn’t want to leave and wanted to go to a hospital. First of all who would take him to that hospital in North Korea and why did he need a hospital? Was his drink plied with something other than vodka? Why wouldn’t he want to go to a hospital in China  as his tour operator  allegedly suggested where they would seem to have more sophisticated medical assistance than in North Korea? It simply doesn’t make sense to me. Also was this the first time he drank alcohol?  That is doubtful since he was fraternity man at the U of Virginia where drinking often happens as it does in other fraternities around the country. Did he not get sick immediately  if he was allegedly drinking so much? Wouldn’t he have told his tour operator that he was sick before he went to the airport, not after he was already in the airport and being called by the tour operator as was suggested?

5. Another witness on the plane reported that Otto said something to the soldier and then the soldier started yelling at him and dragged him off. This is very, very odd. Why would Otto speak to any soldier or guard and how did he know Korean so well to have a conversation with anyone? Everything is so strict in that country and everything is so monitored with tourists. Thus, it is very odd  that Otto would speak to anyone other than his tour guide or handlers.

6. Regarding  watching all of your p’s and q’s in North Korea,  another person on the tour stated “We were told constantly that the smallest thing was considered a hostile attack.  I bought lots of magazines and books there and we were told not to fold them in a way that creased Kim Jong-un’s face. They said that would be an attack on their country.”

 

Anyone would know that that stealing a banner is a lot more of a hostile attack in a restricted country than  creasing Kim Jong un’s face in a magazine photo. As someone who was described as “bright” by those who knew him and as a U of Virginia college student, one would know that. One would obviously know that taking anything from North Korea, especially something you did not pay for was a hostile act. So it make you wonder if Otto really committed this hostile act or if it was simply contrived – made up by the North Koreans?

This  leads me to wonder if this young man was being used by the  North Korean officials  to use as an example of propaganda to their people to illustrate just  how bad Americas are in  terms of their drinking and stealing property.

Did the Koreans single him out when he entered the country?  Did they slip him something in his drink to make him ill?  Did they steal the banner and plant it in his luggage,  since he was conveniently the last person to go through the airport security ? Did the Korean’s  plan it this way ? Was there someone forcing him to tell the tour operator that he wanted to stay in North Korea and go to a hospital there? Did he even say that he wanted to stay in North Korea or go to the hospital or was that information that was manufactured ?

The entire scenario seems odd to me and his body language seems to reflect that oddness. His over the top delivery with rhetoric any Westerner  would quickly knows was  a “forced to say” confession. Then, his complete change in demeanor whereby he seems drugged or unconscious,  as he is abruptly dragged away by two robotic expressionless guards, raises suspicion.

The entire scenario is frightening and evidence that every American MUST listen to The U.S. State Department who has repeatedly  warned against travel to North Korea. American visitors who ignore this warning to not travel there are  at great risk  of breaking the North Korea’s strange and seeming ridiculous  and  petty rules. They  risk detention, arrest , and lengthy jail sentences. Although most have eventually been released, the process is a lengthy and an expensive one. They may also die in captivity based on the harsh conditions they will be exposed to such as hard physical labor. They are also at risk of dying at the hands of unsympathetic and inhumane guards.Finally, they are jeopardizing the government’s time, energy,  and finances as it takes a lot of money and effort to negotiate for their release.

The bottom line is stay away from North Korea, especially if you  an American.

Kim Jong Il’s Body Language Reveals His Positive Feelings Towards Former President Bill Clinton

If you really want to determine how a person feels about someone, look at the direction in which their toes are pointed in. Kim Il Jong’s toe points directly at former President Clinton’s, thus indicating that he not only thought their meeting went well, but that he genuinely likes the former President. This is also indicated by his shoulder and upper body leaning in towards Clinton. His raised cheeks with both his eyes and lips smiling, indicate the sincerity of positive his feelings towards the former President.
Bill Clinton’s body language, on the other hand, reveals that there is a lot more to the story. While, he too may have somewhat positive feelings towards Kim Il Jong, based on the fact that his toe also points in the North Korea leader’s direction, Clinton’s overall rigid demeanor, with rounded shoulders and arms stiffly at his side, and most of all the lack of his usually present radiant smile reflects just how serious a feat and how almost virtually impossible it must have been for him to help secure the release the two US journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Clinton’s head is tuned in the in the opposite direction of Kim Il Jong’s, appearing serious and cautious, not wanting to make one wrong move physically or verbally as to in no way jeopardize the release of the two women.
