N. Korea Technological Breakthrough! (After All These Years)

(World Tribune) North Korea, which has boasted ballistic missiles and nuclear arms, has begun producing the country's first home-built bicycles, China's Xinhua news agency said in a dispatch from Pyongyang.

The factory, a joint venture with China, opened in Pyongyang on Oct. 7 with a number of senior officials from the two countries attending. They included Paek Hyun-Bong, chairman of the North's Committee for the Promotion of External Economic Cooperation, and Wu Donghe, Chinese ambassador to Pyongyang.

Dear Leader just now thought of bikes? They have nuclear tipped ballistic missiles, but not a single bike factory until now? Why didn’t the US put this on the table about 7-8 years ago instead of nuclear reactors?
