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.

Irrelevant to what I said. 'Er...unless you think Pakistan is stable. It was once an ally of ours but is turning into an enemy.

Get back to us when any country with the bomb other than North Korea says that our cities will burn.

And as for North Korea, why shouldn't we sanction them? I would think someone of your beliefs would be happy to not involve ourselves with another country, much less one that is threatening open war on us.

You're not tracking, as usual with what I posted, that is a response to our provocative actions to NK and our routine belligerent talk toward other nations, including bombing and invading non-threats. Sanctions are designed to provoke. Did you expect any different behavior by some nations as a response? Take some responsibility. I know it's hard for your ilk. If WWIII starts folks like you helped start it.

I know you have an awful opinion of the country you live in, and like to point out as often as you can how we are an evil empire, but that isn't what this thread is about, so please focus....

Is it your opinion that North Korea is threatening open nuclear war on America becasue of the sanctions we have imposed upon them?

And just for the sake of clarity, I see no reference here to how sanctions are a tool of provocation -

sanc·tion (sngkshn) KEY

NOUN:

Authoritative permission or approval that makes a course of action valid. See Synonyms at permission.
Support or encouragement, as from public opinion or established custom.
A consideration, influence, or principle that dictates an ethical choice.

A law or decree.
The penalty for noncompliance specified in a law or decree.
A penalty, specified or in the form of moral pressure, that acts to ensure compliance or conformity.
A coercive measure adopted usually by several nations acting together against a nation violating international law.
TRANSITIVE VERB:
sanc·tioned, sanc·tion·ing, sanc·tions
To give official authorization or approval to: "The president, we are told, has sanctioned greed at the cost of compassion" (David Rankin).
To encourage or tolerate by indicating approval. See Synonyms at approve.
To penalize, especially for violating a moral principle or international law.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ETYMOLOGY:
Middle English, enactment of a law, from Old French, ecclesiastical decree, from Latin sncti, snctin-, binding law, penal sanction, from snctus, holy ; see sanctify

OTHER FORMS:
sanction·a·ble(Adjective)

WORD HISTORY:
Occasionally, a word can have contradictory meanings. Such a case is represented by sanction, which can mean both "to allow, encourage" and "to punish so as to deter." It is a borrowing from the Latin word sncti, meaning "a law or decree that is sacred or inviolable." In English, the word is first recorded in the mid-1500s in the meaning "law, decree," but not long after, in about 1635, it refers to "the penalty enacted to cause one to obey a law or decree." Thus from the beginning two fundamental notions of law were wrapped up in it: law as something that permits or approves and law that forbids by punishing. From the noun, a verb sanction was created in the 18th century meaning "to allow by law," but it wasn't until the second half of the 20th century that it began to mean "to punish (for breaking a law)." English has a few other words that can refer to opposites, such as the verbs dust (meaning both "to remove dust from" and "to put dust on") and trim (meaning both "to cut something away" and "to add something as an ornament").

If you really loved your country you'd do all you can to point out that it's certain interests in our govt and connected to it pushing this endless need for war crap. ( who are the same ones behind our bad economy and banking problems) So they report things in a manner to hide the sequence of events. It has nothing to do with this country or it's people—most of whom are war weary. Much to the chagrin of men like Bill Kristol and yourself.

Yup, let's put words in my mouth instead of trying to understand the position I take. I'm beginning to think you're really Bill Kristol on this board who is criticizing Americans for being weary of war...and more war. You're the one criticizing Americans. I think you need to re-think things.

Read what I wrote. I know that's hard for you.

I know what the word means. Nothing here indicated otherwise. Meanwhile, you ignore recent history to remain willfully ignorant.

1.) There were sanctions on Iraq before we went to war, in order to weaken before we bombed it, which did not hurt Hussein but the people.
2.) We have sanctions on Iran, to weaken it, before we bomb it or go to war.
3.) FDR put an embargo on Japan to provoke it before it bombed Pearl Harbor.

You fail to see the pattern here. Keep putting your head in the sand. I'm the one trying to throw a life preserver to save this country and many lives. You advocate destruction and my country right or wrong attitude even when America is not America anymore but descends into fascism. The same people pushing this war propaganda are the same ones crushing Americans right now. Go for it Bowser. Put an ostrich feather in your cap.
