The apparent shutdown of a nuclear reactor in North Korea (search) is raising concerns among Bush administration officials that Pyongyang has completed the task of producing spent fuel rods laced with weapons-grade plutonium.
But a U.S. official familiar with the situation said there could be at least two other possibilities, neither of which is troubling: that the reactor has run into mechanical trouble or that North Korea is bluffing in order to raise anxieties.

makes one wonder... why there wasn't such great analysis and concern over the U.S. and U.S.S.R. nuclear developments of the past. How has the threat changed? Just because Korea or Iran are considered 'rogue state', what does that say about the U.S. and Russia?
Who are we to judge?
