North Korea's Latest Threat: It Will Restart Nuclear Reactor

Quote:

North Korea's KCNA news agency released this photo Monday, saying it shows leader Kim Jong Un (at left) speaking during a plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the DPRK in Pyongyang. Hanging above is the image of his father, former leader Kim Jong Il, who died in 2011.

A vow Tuesday from North Korea that it will restart a nuclear reactor that eventually could make about one bomb's worth of plutonium a year further escalates tensions that were already high due to that nation's almost daily threats, NPR's Louisa Lim tells our Newscast Desk.

According to Louisa, who filed her report from Beijing:
"In a statement, North Korea said work to restart all facilities at the Yongbyon nuclear plant will begin without delay. It said it needs to resolve an acute electricity shortage, as well as bolster what it called its nuclear armed force.
"Analysts say that Pyongyang now sees its nuclear arms program as essential for national security and non-negotiable. It's not clear how long it will take to restart the nuclear plant. In 2008, its cooling tower was blown up as part of disarmament efforts."


The Associated Press adds that the plutonium reactor "was shut down in 2007 as part of international nuclear disarmament talks that have since stalled. The declaration of a resumption of plutonium production the most common fuel in nuclear weapons and other facilities at the main Yongbyon nuclear complex will boost fears in Washington and among its allies about North Korea's timetable for building a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the United States, technology it is not currently believed to have."

Monday, as we reported, the Pentagon told reporters that two F-22 Raptor fighter jets have been sent to South Korea to take part in U.S.-South Korean military drills. That followed last week's news that nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers had conducted a training flight to the Korean Peninsula.

The North, and its young leader Kim Jong Un, have been blaming the U.S.-South Korean military drills (which those nations have conducted many times in recent decades) as they have moved to cut hotlines to the South and annul the 1953 armistice that ended open warfare on the peninsula.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the announcement about restarting the Yongbyon reactor came "after a rare plenary meeting of the central committee of the ruling Worker's Party, which set a new strategic direction for the nation. At the meeting, Kim described the nuclear weapons program as the 'nation's life'and 'treasure,' which 'can never be abandoned.' "

South Korea's new president, Park Geun-hye, said Tuesday that the security situation is "grave," Yonhap News reports. The news agency adds, though, that she believes "discouraging North Korea from provocations through strong diplomatic and military deterrence is just as important as punishing the communist nation after provocations.

First they came for the Iraqis, then the Libyians, then the Syrians, then the Iranians, now the North Koreans and last will be the Americans. Bowser won't know what hit him.

I like how you've not answered my question, but labeled me everything that you rail against. That's fine, it's kind of your M.O.

Is it your opinion that North Korea is threatening open nuclear war on America becasue of the sanctions we have imposed upon them? A simple yes or no answer from you will suffice.

Your question was answered in my earlier posts. And you labeled me first with "dumb" and hated my country via implication. Hate to sound like an 8 year old but you started it.

It's bluff and bluster in return for ours. I've said this before....in earlier threads. I've said what they really wanted in the last NK thread. You are easily manipulated by govt propaganda and the pisstream media.

Good lord, I wasn't calling YOU dumb, I was saying what the guy said in the first couple of minutes was dumb! So damned sensitive!

Well, whatever you say. I'm not going to go search it out. You COULD have just said yes or no, but whatever floats your boat.

The White House has conceded that the rhetoric coming out of North Korea has not been followed with any significant changes to their mobilization.

Yet, the Obama regime, still deploys military hardware in the Korean Peninsula which is raising the stakes.

To be fair, the latest North Korean test appears to be just another attempt by Pyongyang to play the game of nuclear blackmail it has pursued for a generation, and which successive U.S. administrations have failed to derail. Since the 1994 Agreed Framework, the Clinton-era pact under which the North was to get fuel oil, food aid, and billions of dollars' worth of civilian nuclear equipment in return for freezing and "eventually" dismantling its plutonium program, North Korea has used its sputtering nuclear program as a bargaining chip to gain Western attention. And every time it has failed to follow through on pledges to dismantle the program. Even the George W. Bush administration, after denouncing the Clinton deal with Pyongyang, eventually came around to the idea that the North Korean regime wasn’t about to collapse after all, and it might be better to trade off proliferation for a little food and aid.

I didn't say you said I was dumb per se. I said it was implied. But let's look at that about Celente. Apparently, you know nothing about him. He has a successful business spotting and reporting on trends. That's what he does for a living. He's been pretty darn accurate too. So you calling him dumb is well 'er dumb. You really ought not to project like that.

As for the other comments, you did imply them. It's not that I'm sensitive, it's just you have got nothing. So I decided the play the same game back with you, since it's your level of understanding. ( logical fallacies so I used it back on you) Then look who is calling me sensitive. You whined about it.

Project much?

Actually, I think I am just over your head and you can't process any information or views unless they fall into what the piss stream media and govt tell you to think.

Requiring a yes or no, to your framing of the point, is two valued logic which doesn't work. The answer is not within that framework.
