We see a food chain established here. China rips off U.S.(knockoffs, theft of technology, etc), and N. Korea rips off China(gets aids, and keeps Chinese trains as added bonus.)

What would they refuse to return next time? I want to know.:)

Just a hunch of mine, but this could reduce the number of future aid missions from China...

This could be an interesting turn of events. China does not like to be made the fool. If NK is willing to steal from hand that feeds it, they must be very desperate thus very unpredictable.

This is the definition of a win-win situation for us.

"N. Korea appears to think that the trains are part of the aid package."

Socialism in action.

Biting the hand that feeds you.

N. Korea and Zimbabwe are running neck and neck for having the most stupidly run country in the world.

This thing of stealing the trains would be funny if it werent so damned dumb.

"Jiji Presss pointed out, " In N. Korea, trains are badly worn-out and in short supply. It is highly likely that the trains from China are used for domestic transportation."

Ahhh...the wonders of socialism/marxism.

I wonder if Ramsey Clark had any comment. He holds himself out as supporting The North Korean regime and its system of oppression.

I think it would be interesting to know what North Korea has on China that would keep China from responding.

If North Korea is used by China to accomplish illegal trade or foreign policy goals then North Korea could probably get away with a great deal.

North Korea only exists because of China so there must be a benefit flowing to China.

I thought China and NK were allies?The logical reaction by China would be to stop sending aid.So just what has Kim accomplished?Incomprehensible.

Kim Jong Il, you have caused confusion and delay. I need useful and reliable engines.

IOW, unlike Italy's Mussolini, the trains don't run on time in North Korea.

Here's a country with the atomic bomb and long range missles that can't supply electricity and basic needs to it's citizens.

IMO, it's insane to allow it to continue.

When I first read this I thought the trains had AIDS in them.

This is a classical case of inbreeding, 60 years of isolation, destroys the gene pool....
