    North Korea to Restart Nuclear Weapons Plant

    SEOUL, South Korea North Korea vowed Tuesday to bolster its nuclear deterrent and boycott six-party talks aimed at its denuclearization in protest of a U.N. Security Council statement condemning the country's recent rocket launch.

    North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it "resolutely condemns" the action by the United Nations, which it said "rampantly" infringes upon the country's sovereignty and "severely debases" the people's dignity.

    "We have no choice but to further strengthen our nuclear deterrent to cope with additional military threats by hostile forces," the statement said.

    I guess Obama's strong response to their missile launch had nothing to do with this.

    That I'd like to see. Especially from the Obama bashers who these days resemble the Democrats of 2004. Offer nothing but criticism and completely unrealistic 'plans.' The GOP's 'budget' plan as Don pointed out was beyond wishful thinking and into the realm of LSD induced dreaming. So instead of just bashing and offering candy land alternatives, how about something realistic for a change?

    Or is that simply too much to ask?

    With Obama's track record. He'll open up unilateral talks, bow, hand them iPods & DVD's, then pull a Clinton and give them $10 billion in aid, to deter them from their nuclear ambitions.

    I was more alluding to the fact it took over a week before anyone ya know... did anything at all.

    I'm sure that played into their decisions.

    We need to carry out strikes against North Korea's nuclear facilities in and around Punyongyang.

    Kim Jong Jackoff has been been given more then enough warning about his nuclear numbnuttery.

    Now he can go **** himself.

    Nope, we need to let their neighbors do that.

    Well, they basically have a choice between revising their constitution to meet the new threat or developing a nuclear deterrent of their own.

    Although possession of nuclear weapons is not forbidden in the constitution, Japan, as the only nation to experience the devastation of atomic attack, early expressed its abhorrence of nuclear arms and determined never to acquire them. The Basic Atomic Energy Law of 1956 limits research, development, and utilization of nuclear power to peaceful uses, and, beginning in 1956, national policy has embodied "three non-nuclear principles"--forbidding the nation to possess or manufacture nuclear weapons or to allow them to be introduced into the nation. Prime Minister Eisaku Sato made this pledge - known as the Three Non-Nuclear Principles - on February 5, 1968. The notion was formalized by the Japanese Diet on November 24, 1971. In 1976 Japan ratified the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (adopted by the United Nations Security Council in 1968) and reiterated its intention never to "develop, use, or allow the transportation of nuclear weapons through its territory." However, if Japan believed that "extraordinary events" had jeopardised its "supreme interests", under Article X of the Treaty it could withdraw from the NPT. Such "extraordinary events" could include the acquisition of nuclear weapons by North Korea. Japan could then legally use its plutonium to build nuclear weapons.
    That's Japan's business. The question is "what should we do?" Direct talks are out of the question in my opinion for two reasons

    1) Our interests in the region are relatively periphery compared to the other nations in the six-party talks.

    2) I can't think of anything I, as the president, would be willing to concede to North Korea unilaterally.

    I'd be discussing this matter with the three letter agencies. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are winding down. I'm sure they've got some time on their hands.
