    Default OT - Machine Shops & Kim Jong Un in N. Korea...

    I usually don't venture into the Manufacturing in America & Europe section, but I thought this was the best place for this topic anyway...

    Without starting a political flame war, I thought the picture chosen for this article was interesting. It shows Kim Jong Un & friends in a machine shop, in front of a CNC mill with 4th axis - Anyone know the brand? I'm guessing something Chinese perhaps?

    Hyundai?? Samsung?? Would be my guess. Hyundai actually is a really good machine from what I hear?

    Reuters ran a story describing the history of CNC machining in North Korea a few days ago. Apparently they started reverse-engineering imported machines in the 1990s and from there developed their own industry. Seems they write pop songs for karaoke performances about them -- those parties must be a real gas

    NK is also known for running numbers of agents into the south so probably they also get some authentic Samsung tech info which could be integrated with their own work.

    "Agents" ? it's one country, Scott. Families have people living on both sides of the dmz. People who live there are just waiting for all this crap to blow over.

    There is no Axis of Evil ... unless you count London-Wall Street.

    uhhhh, really, so there are no agents from NK going to SK, really.

    I think most Koreans would be surprised to hear that they are one country

    Should they be, no doubt.

    But not since 1951 or so, and then under the gun of Chinese soldiers.


    Lets not be silly here, NK must steal its tech, and it most likely does so from the south, using agents, unless you think South Koreans are somehow eager to help build bombs

    Bill strikes again. Speaking of "one country", how about "thermite/monarchist/seamoss/mattij".

    Syngman Rhee, puppet of the US. Douglas MacArthur, "I'm gonna chase them commnists all the way back to Hell, if I have to drop nukes on 'em to do it."

    For a guy who thinks he's really smart, son of gustaf, you can be remarkably ill-informed.

    Are you terminally stupid or just stirring the pot ? If you can't tell that Monarchist and I are exactly 180* opposed on many many things, then it's Door Number One. And what the hell does poor Mattij have to do with Gordon's preverted fantasies ?

    Yes, it's sort of pointless. But someone has to stand up and mention that you guys with your axis of evil idiocy are mentally retarded. It's stoooopid to the max.

    It is easy to learn from past mistakes. It seems much harder to remember those lessons. Viet Nam, Laos, Iraq, Afghanistan, et al

    I'm not going to re litigate the Korean Conflict, war, police action, but to maintain there are no NK agents is just silly

    To call them "agents" or "insurgents" or any of that other crap, that's what's silly. They happen to be the people who live there, and have for the past several thousand years.

    Unlike you, who live ten thousand miles away and don't know a damn thing about the place but still feel you have the right to decide what kind of government and what kind of society some other people can have.

    Meanwhile you elect Donald Trump and fight over whether Social Security is "affordable". Maybe you guys should fix your own roof before you go pointing fingers at other countries ?

    But what's hilarious is, I just read that George Weapons of Mass Destruction Bush is calling Mr Trump a liar

    If that's not irony, then the Oxford English Dictionary made the mother of all mistakes
