Excuse the delay- had a hangup with my post last night in the form of a 12 year old who doesn't believe in saving open documents before taking the
computer. Anyway, I'm back.

PLEASE show us all where it was required.
As shown on previous pages the Paris Agreement was non-binding.
Eye on the ball my friend, we're talking North Korea. Your link for the agreed framework, page 2, Section I, 3- first bullet. North Korea agrees to
freeze the graphite reactor and related facilities within one month.
1994: Pakistani Prime Minister Bhutto travels to North Korea. AQ Kahn makes 13 subsequent trips, along with other scientists and Pakistani military
officers, including the Army Chief of Staff Waheed and his Operations Officer- Pervez Musharraf.
April 98: The fruit of these exchanges is proven when Pakistan fires a Gharui missile for the first time as part of the nuclear tests India and
Pakistan conducted that year. The Ghauri is a No-Dong A knockoff.
The LWRs fell behind schedule, but the deal stood for the moment.
1998 Unknown to America at the time, North Korea trades missiles for centrifgues with Pakistan.
In 1998 the DIA located a facility at Hagap, including entrances to underground areas.
In 1999 and afterwards both US and SK intelligence began to suspect North Korea of acquiring centrifuges.
1998 Kenki Aoyama defects from NK to Japan. He has extensive knowledge of the facilities at Yongbyon.
2000: The UK JIC implicates Kahn in proliferation to Libya. (www.globalsecurity.org...
2000: Pakistan seizes an aircraft charted by AQ Kahn, bound for North Korea.
July 2002: US Satellites spot Pakistani aircraft picking up additional missile equipment in North Korea.
November 2002: The US cuts off oil shipments to NK.
2003: A ship containing alluminum casings for centrifuges is stopped near Libya, bound for North Korea, confirming earlier suspicions.
Feb 2004: After being sacked from his post, Kahn makes a public appology and admits to his activities, claiming he acted without authorization.
PLEASE enlighten us to the facts.
The facts are that the source is the word of one old man with plenty of motive to lie.
Um, one old American man, one old Pakistani arms salesman, one old Pakistani General turned Coupster, a shipload of centrifuge components, satellite
images adding evidence of an exchange, backed up by technical simliarities in Pakistani and NK missiles, the testimony of NK Defectors, Kahn's
admission that he became aware that NK possessed 3 weapons already in the late 90s...
You're a heck of a transcendentalist if you call that one man.
