One of tractors at a collective farm.

Small number of them are said to be operated mostly to show them off to visitors.

Did the rubber band break on that one?

Looks like something you would find at the bottom of a cracker jack box.

It looks like Mr. Haney has become an arms dealer.

That last tractor looks like they took the cab from a 1929 REO model C and slapped it on an old Massey Harris.

Doesn’t matter what they are pulled by. Just matters if they can be fired.

General Patton: "You know how I'm sure they're finished out there?

The carts.

They're using carts to move their wounded and the supplies.

The carts came to me in my dream. I couldn't figure it out.

Then I remembered. . . that nightmare in the snow. The agonizing retreat from Moscow.

How cold it was.

They threw the wounded and what was left of the supplies in the carts.

Napoleon was finished."

In other words they don’t have fuel to run them on a daily bases.

IIRC, the Germans were pulling their new jet aircraft out to the runways with mules due to lack of fuel.

They were still a threat though.

When the Luftwaffe was pulling the 262 onto the runway with horses, the pilot had a few hundred aerial kills.

The the Norks haven't flown in combat in how many years? Experience counts for a lot. And this time, the ROK Army is a force to be reckoned with.

And I would not be surprised if South Korea had an atomic weapon, or three. Just because they are smart enough not to put an ad in the International Herald Tribune doesn't mean they can't. They've got FOUR reactors, and a high tech industrial base.

The South Koreans are certainly capable of making an atomic bomb, but I doubt very much they have done this. They would have to put together an enrichment facility to process their used fuel from their commercial reactors, and thats no small thing. And if they were to try this, everybody and his brother would know about it, because to say that the South Korean government leaks like a sieve is a huge understatement.

In Japan, water buffalo were used to move Zero fighters out of the Mitsubishi plant.

Are those first two photos official DPRK government pics? They look like they were taken by a Kodak Instamatic.

They were taken by Chinese tourists.

Given the warped priorities of the Communist Regime there, I would not be suprised if tractors were frequently diverted from farm work in order to tow weapons back and forth from the DMZ.

The 4 woman in the second picture down; look like Obama supporters at a rally in 2008.
Same glazed, mechanical look on the faces.

I think they have a common bond of ideology. But I will say from lurking on some sites frequented by Gen Y folks that the magic of Baraq is quite diminished from 3 yrs ago.

That’s not all. Some of them were reportedly in tears while assuming their posture in the truck. It induces a kind of mass hysteria, a la worshipers at a cult rally.

Magic stays longer when the country is closed from outside while there are brainwashing augmented by pervasive fear in the background However, it is no longer what it used to be. As with Obama, Chia Head's magic has been diminishing fast.

Finely divided plutonium, the most deadly substance on earth. It doesn't have to be a fission device. Shelling, rocketing or bombing PyongYang. Anyone allowed to live there is totally expendable. Even if Kim survives, none of his lackeys would.

(Personally, I'd do it on one of Kim's big "everyone is marching or flashing cards" days, without warning. Just bang over the DMZ and "Happy Pearl Harbor Day!") But, that's just me.
