Korea is already the most heavily fortified border in the world.

Hundreds of thousands of troops patrol the frontier...

It's a pretty long frontier.

09-04-2005, 16:03:42
Only 238 km

An 1.1 million army patrolling 238 km seems quite a lot to me...

What's the big deal? They've been used in Iraq since 2003.

Seem to recall a robotics book from the 90s that listed a project for an armed sentry car.

Of course, the shit will hit the fan when they get hacked. :)

WHEN, not if.

Shit. I better start checking the jobs sites.

South Koreans defect to the North? Boy are those idiots in for a rude awakening once they get to the workers paradise. :lol:

Yeah, that does sound like a pretty mad thing to do...

* Cruddy muses on a reason to defect to N Korea

Perhaps they were looking for a lost dog?

Maybe they have family on the other side?

Perhaps they are escaped criminals who need a safe haven?

Provost sounds right though. Mad as cut snakes.

They kicked their ball over the border and want it back?

10-04-2005, 17:28:52
Or they prefer communism and big fancy buildings.

And starvation. Don't forget starvation.

They have that in abundance...

Shouldn't be they DON't have something in abundance - like food?

Maybe that's the answer - it's a really fat South Korean who just can't stop eating.

Sign at the border:

"Welcome to Kim Jong Il's Health Spa and Weight Loss Center! (Formerly North Korea)"

That would be a great way to solve everyone's problems. Instead of sending food to Africa, we send fat people to Africa, and Africans to the US and Europe.
