So we build an a-bomb out of it, and nuke ourselves blaming Iran. Just like 9/11 only instead of bin laden we blame Iran.
I have been saying for a long time that in order for us to go to Iran, they will need 9/11 #2.
This is really, really scary.

They have a ship from North Korea that was heading for Iran full of weapons grade uranium. They sunk it and recovered the radioactive materials. They inspected the materials and can prove that they are from DPRK even though it was on a DPRK vessel.

What (why even) sink a freighter with a US sub? Why?
Did it have guns?
Were they shooting back?
Why not just take the ship?
If they knew it had that cargo why not just use US might to board the ship and show the world what was on it.
Don't make sense.
President Bush had the option of ordering US Marines to board the vessel or to sink it. He decided on the latter - both because the North Korean freighter was approaching an area patrolled by Iranian naval units and seizure of the vessel by American marines might have provoked a clash; secondly, it was the better choice in order to avoid exposing US troops to radioactive contamination. American naval and air units in the Persian Gulf, Middle East and seas opposite North Korea were ordered to go on a high state of readiness and the torpedo the North Korean vessel was accomplished without delay.

With all due respect John, I think that at this point in history- as we are trying (albeit in a slow and clumsy manner) to establish credible international law- to rely on two groups who hate eachother to unilaterally deter one another.
You mean like the U.S and the U.S.S.R? Give me a break.

The real issue is that Iran is still trying to become the first Arab state to have nuclear deterrence and it is getting closer every day
Okay then which is worse? A Muslim with a nuke or an Arab with a nuke? What if its an Arab-Muslim?

I messed up when i first posted this.section8citizen had a great point, he said well if this is true then would'nt it prove the U.S claim Iran wants to make nuclear weapons?Awsome point.

In reports first published by DEBKAfile,...
That's enough for me to doubt this report.

Dosen't matter whether this is disinfo or what. We need to be on the lookout and watch this carefully. If N.Korea says they are shutting down facilities then don't why do you think they did that?
They are getting ready for war.
