A friend pointed this one out to me, I wonder if they are bluffing? Makes that explosion over there a few weeks ago bring new meaning doesnt it?
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24, Kyodo - North Korea has repeatedly threatened the United States that it will test its nuclear weapons, and has allegedly tried to
obtain materials for its uranium enrichment program, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency said Tuesday in a report to Congress.
The CIA report, confirming earlier news reports and comments by related officials, also says Pyongyang may be ready to test-fire a long-range
ballistic missile ''potentially capable of reaching parts of the United States with a nuclear-weapon-sized payload.''
The unclassified portion of the semiannual report to Congress on the acquisition of technology related to weapons of mass destruction from July 1
through Dec. 31 last year identifies a full range of countries and groups of proliferation concerns, including China, Iran and the al-Qaida
''In late April 2003 during trilateral talks in Beijing, North Korea privately threatened to 'transfer' or 'demonstrate' its nuclear
weapons,'' the report said. ''It repeated these threats in August 2003 at the six-party talks.''
