Korean Nukes Continue By James Reed
I have been following the North Korea nuke issue, because I don’t trust them. It struck me as highly implausible that a regime could go from talk of a nuclear Armageddon, to peace in a few months. There has to be more to it than that, surely:
“The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) published a report on Monday stating there is no indication North Korea is truly abandoning its nuclear weapons program. The U.N. watchdog agency said the few steps taken by Pyongyang so far have been largely theatrical and do not represent a meaningful dismantling of the rogue Communist nation’s nuclear capability. The IAEA report made it clear that verification is extremely difficult to conduct in North Korea, so the agency’s “knowledge of the DPRK’s nuclear program is limited, and, as further nuclear activities take place in the country, this knowledge is declining.” That sounds like a tactful way of saying that North Korea is growing less transparent as the “denuclearization” process ostensibly continues, which is the exact opposite of what the international community desires, and quite remarkable given how opaque North Korea was to begin with. Based on the few verification tools available to it, primarily satellite imagery and the trickle of “open source” information available from North Korea, the IAEA warned that a new plutonium reprocessing plant appears to be under construction at the Yongbyon nuclear power plant, while a new site near Pyongyang has characteristics “not inconsistent with a centrifuge enrichment facility.” Both of these facilities would be useful for producing nuclear warheads.”
To my mind it is clear that North Korea has merely gone sneaky, like Iran, and is continuing its nuclear program. No way does someone who was looking forward to nuclear war, change his horse so quickly. And, remember from past articles, that Australia will be a nuclear target, perhaps with epicentre being my flat in Melbourne.
