    NKorea says it will 'weaponize' its plutonium

    NKorea says it will 'weaponize' its plutonium


    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea says it will restart its uranium enrichment program and "weaponize" all the plutonium in its possession.

    The warning from North Korea's Foreign Ministry was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency on Saturday.

    It came hours after the U.N. Security Council approved tough new sanctions on the North to punish it for its latest nuclear test on May 25.

    It also threatened to take "resolute military action" if the United States or its allies try to impose any "blockade" on it. It did not elaborate if the blockade refers to an attempt to stop its ships or impose sanctions.

    How about instead of just complaining, you actually offer a viable, realistic plan for a change Triad?

    Furthermore, how you about own up and acknowledge that Obama has the same craptastic options Bush had?

    Did you see me bashing Bush on North Korea? No. Because I understood that his options were quite limited, and even more limited in the realistic department. While I recognized that Bush was done talking to North Korea before the 6 party talks began, that does not change the available choices he had in dealing with them. China holds the key here. And it has for quite some time.

    But but but Obama is THE MESSIAH! He's promising us pocket change and changed underwear and supposedly changed policies, and all he's changed so far is the state of the deficit.

    When's The Messiah going to do something right?

    North Korea in plutonium threat

    North Korea has said it will weaponise its plutonium stocks amid threats to take military action over United Nations sanctions, state media said.

    Pyongyang would view any US-led attempts to "blockade" it as an "act of war", the Associated Press (AP) said.

    The warning from North Korea's foreign ministry was carried by Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Saturday.


    It follows a toughening of UN sanctions against the communist state.

    'Unacceptable behaviour'

    On Friday, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to impose tougher sanctions on communist North Korea, after its nuclear test on 25 May.

    The North also tested a rocket thought to be capable of carrying a warhead, though Pyongyang said it was designed to carry a satellite.

    The UN sanctions include the inspection of North Korean ships, a wider ban on arms sales and other financial measures.

    The US deputy ambassador at the UN, Rosemary DiCarlo, said the new vote was a strong and united response to North Korea's "unacceptable behaviour".

    breaking news

    The North Korean foreign ministry statement said: "Firstly, all plutonium to be extracted will be weaponised. One third of used fuel rods have so far been reprocessed.

    "Secondly, we will start uranium enrichment," the statement added.

    China Warns Against Force in Carrying Out North Korea Sanctions


    June 13 (Bloomberg) --

    China warned about the dangers involved in inspecting North Korean cargo under United Nations Security Council sanctions approved yesterday, saying countries intercepting vessels should avoid armed action.

    “Under no circumstance should there be the use of force or the threat of use of force” in implementing the sanctions in Resolution 1874, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yesui said in New York. Inspecting vessels carrying North Korean cargo is “complicated” and “sensitive,” he said.

    The Security Council voted 15 to O to punish North Korea for its May nuclear-bomb test and missile launches. The resolution authorizes stepped-up inspection of air or sea cargoes suspected of being destined for the development of nuclear arms or ballistic missiles. The measure also calls for new restrictions on loans and money transfers to North Korea.

    China’s support for the penalties may be significant given its close political and trade ties with the reclusive North Korean regime of Kim Jong Il. The U.S. is especially concerned about preventing North Korea from selling its nuclear technology to other countries.

    U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said at a White House briefing that the sanctions have “teeth that will bite.” She pointed out that the resolution doesn’t authorize the use of military force.

    **The U.S. is prepared to “confront” a vessel suspected of carrying an illegal shipment and attempt to board it “consensually,” Rice told reporters. If the crew refuses a boarding or to go to a nearby port for an inspection, the U.S. would make clear “whose vessel it is” and the likely cargo, “to shine a spotlight on it, to make it very difficult for that contraband to continue to be carried forward,” Rice added.**

    One must wonder if you enjoy the blatant trolling you engage in.

    Obama has the same bad options that Bush did. How about some honesty for a change? Obama does nothing (as Bush did) and you guys holler. Obama starts a new Korean War and you guys holler. This is nothing more than a less than subtle attempt to bash Obama. I didn't Bush crap on this subject because his options were indeed terrible. Do you see me giving Obama crap when the same bad options exist? No.

    But I see you two giving Obama crap despite saying nothing when Bush was in the same position.

    So who's the consistent one here?

    We all know that Triad has more holes in his beliefs than Swiss cheese and has internal contradictions that if were made corporeal could catch entire galaxies, but will you follow this path or be honest?

    The only one thing we have to do, for North Korea, is ignoring thier too much talking. They are hungry. Just ignore them and close any door to North Korea so they can not do anything.

    We, the peace world, must be stronger than them !

    I enjoy the trolling, because it has more truth per word than your long winded bloviating. You're just as full of **** as Obama. The empty suit in the Oval Office is too damn scared to make a real decision, one with balls. But you keep worshiping at his alter.

    Re: NKorea says it will 'weaponize' its plutonium

    This issue was inherited by many presidents Nuclear Weapons Program - North Korea , so to attach this issue to Obama is stupid.

    What I really find interesting is that of all the members of the so called Axis of Terror, the weakest one was Iraq because their threat to us via WMD, was less than N. Korea and Iran. However, instead of going after N Korea or Iran, we invade Iraq.
