(restraining our chuckles at the amount of money Clinton gave them to pay for it) I think this has long been known, and if not known, suspected.
Equally, the link with Pakistan, particularly over the centifruge technology necessary for enrichment has long been known. One recalls the dreadful
Bhutto announcing the lengths he'd go to (in terms of others' blood, of course) to go nuclear and the first medium-range Pakistani missile -meant to
frighten India was immediately identified as a North Korean loan.
A fascinating topic -but I'm a bit hesitant to hang around for long while the board is under siege -or, more accurately, has its own Fifth

To me, it's quite interesting to see what the US -which is gearing up to annihilate a foe might might, one day, have nuclear armaments will do to
another member of the Axis of Evil that in fact already has them and -while it could hardly threaten the USA other than through some terrorist act
-could probably cause havoc in Japan.
Published reaction so far seems to have been rather muted.
