SwearBear, I accept you are not intentionally misleading anyone, but you are wrong and you are trying to create a conspiracy out of an issue which you
do not fully understand.
Firstly the offer to build Light Water Reactors (LWR) for North Korea is not what you think (Nor what the redneck sources you quoted think either).
LWRs were offered by the US as part of a deal to sway North Korea from using Soviet reactor designs at Yongbyon which need highly enriched uranium.
LWRs only require uranium enriched to about 3%. An LWR can generate power with as little as three kilograms of natural uranium.
By contrast the Yongbyon reactor needs 33%+ enriched uranium and is also a plutonium breeder reactor. Plutonium is chemically separated from
Yongbyon's waste fuel after 2 years in the reactor and 3 years of cooling.
Now Burma has acquired the same technology and also has a uranium mine on it's Himalayan border with China. Russia has sold it a squadron of Mig-29
fighters and missile systems. North Korea has been talking about providing submarines to Myanmar aswell.
Pakistani nuclear scientists, Suleiman Asad and Muhammed Ali Mukhtar who were assisting Osama bin Laden to acquire nuclear weapon technology in 2001
fled to Myanamar where they are now involved with creating nuclear weapons for Myanmar/Burma.
