Why I'll never hire a Korean moving company.
 
2013-04-27 08:53:20 PM
I've seen an entire family riding on a moped. They're some crafty farkers over there.
 
2013-04-27 08:53:39 PM
Damn they sure do know how to pack up their vehicles!!
 
2013-04-27 08:56:23 PM
They shouldn't be in N. Korea in the first place....no wonder the the Norks are pissed!
 
2013-04-27 08:56:51 PM
Not just their stuff.

Their company's stuff, too.
 
2013-04-27 08:57:00 PM
I think they're just stealing office supplies on their way out

Stuff in the center of the load looks like they are recycling cardboard or newspapers or pizza boxes.

Do people in Korea use that many tatami mats in a household?  And whatever it is, wouldn't it have gone on the car first to be loaded there?
 
2013-04-27 08:57:31 PM
Do they really need stacks of wood?

Wonder which cars are carrying the nukes.

Yeah, not exactly high value stuff. I'd be more interested in getting out quickly than wasting time loading some cardboard onto my car. The South Koreans are supposed to be the well off ones!

None of that looked like personal possessions. That looked like they were trying to loot finished product out of the shared factories.

NK will never get investment capital again after this dumbass move. Plus this was a major source of income for them; they are shooting themselves in the foot.
 
2013-04-27 09:03:23 PM
Seems like typical MSR1 traffic.
 
2013-04-27 09:03:43 PM
I'd be more worried about the US Air Force playing "How many tactical nuclear bombs can we pack into a B-2 for the first DMZ carpet bombing?" According to Wikipedia, the answer is 16 B83 1.2 megatons (max, variable yield) nuclear bombs (16*75 Hiroshimas.) With the DMZ a nuclear no mans land, there's no need to worry about a huge influx of North Korean infantry or an influx of refugees. We have 21 B-2s.

Feral_and_Preposterous: Not just their stuff.

Their company's stuff, too.


Yeah I don't think any of it is their own.  They don't live in NK.  Looks like "inventory" and "office supplies" to me.

If I had to guess, everyone is moving everyone's shiat out jointly as fast as possible. So that could be most or all of the mats there. While another guy is getting all of the clothes, another is getting the kitchenware, etc. When they reach the South, they'll unpack and get everyone their shiat then.

/No idea what they're actually taking out

Hey, do you have any idea how valuable a stack of wood is in North Korea?

At first I thought it was a story of people removed from homes, then to find that they had just lost their jobs is all, and were looting the place as they left. Nice. Ill remember that if I lose my job, just take evey thing I can steal on the way out.

Yeah, it looks like they're circling the drain. They seem to be trying to posture to get the US, SK and China to negotiate more food aid on their terms, but this time, even China seems to be sick of it. The regime's slowly going to be backed into a corner as their money runs short and I don't think its going to be pretty when they get desperate.

This likely isn't the case. The workers were probably requested by their respective companies to take whatever they can with them.

The prevailing fear in this situation is that once all the South Koreans are gone, the DPRK will seize the facilities and claim everything within.

Stacks of wood? Maybe they'll come in handy if all of Korea is bombed into the stone age?

It'll be interesting to see how the upcoming week plays out, particularly with the "trial" of the US citizen they have.

And then what? Seizing the facility won't do shiat if no one's paying for it's operation or the goods coming out of it. S. Korea paid for everything.

They are not stealing. They are taking as much as they can of stuff that is OWNED by them and their employees. The North provided nothing but labor, land and some raw materials. Many of these small to medium company's will be forced to go out of business, a few already have. The South Korean Gov't will certainly think twice before investing money and time in the North in the future.

If you REALLY want to see stealing and looting, watch the videos of the Northerners taking everything that was left behind.....oh, thats right, you can't because the North is a Totalitarian Police State. My bad.

This (and most of the other ways of transportation pictured) would result in a suspension of driving license in European countries. You have to be on drugs to drive a car stuffed like that. WTF.

No, nothing's on.. yet. This can however be perceived as a point-of-no-return as far as peaceful reunification efforts are concerned.

Wouldn't be surprised if that's actually illegal in S. Korea too, but they just don't care at this moment.

I really don't see how the North Korean situation can end other than badly as Kim Jong Un has backed himself into a corner. Maybe the Kim Jong Un is being set up, that he's going to get offed in a coup and the new leader will use that change to tack a very different and more peaceful path.

As someone who has been through many Pyongyang power outages and in North Korean towns where there is no electricity I think you are right.

That, and making shoddy copies of the rest of the world's cars doesn't help either.

This would be a case where an American-sized vehicle (as opposed to a globalized or Korean one) would have had much less trouble.
