You can't do it as simply as that. There are many other tables associated with threads and posts - threadsread, treadsubscriptions, attachments, moderatorlog, polls, etc. Importing only these 2 tables to another forum may result in buggy data or forum behavior.

Using the merge system will probably be the best solution for you.
EDIT: or, if I read correctly now - if you're recreating a forum, just import the whole backup.
