Send in Dennis Rodman for some basketball diplomacy. He specializes in pandering to these types of rogue regimes.

To be fair, all teams should get an equal chance to do something similar from their own countries, either at the same time, or shortly before/after. It is unfair that only a few teams get to do this.

You will be shocked at how fast this method is and how foolproof."

Yes I am shocked that someone considers 1 hour to be fast!

 Locals are accustomed to the treatment, but visitors may not be.

"May not be?" I will not be surprised one bit if some of those "pushers" get shoved right back!

If you intend to shove back, be sure to wear white gloves in order to get into the right Cosplay frame of mind.

Am guessing there are some underlying health issues, and more to this story.

In terms of rehydration, there are many effective Oral Rehydration Powders available at pharmacies. Drinking water alone will not replenish sodium and other nutrients lost through sweating and dehydration and can lead to hyponatremia

Something doesn't add up here. Why would these 2 punks go all the way to a 3rd world country to jack a car in the middle of nowhere, while planning heist. More likely a yakuza inside job, or maybe a drug deal gone wrong. The journos need to dig a bit deeper here as something is clearly amiss.
