Remember when the news agencies reported that a Russian scientist was involved with helping Iran in it's quest for acquiring a nuclear weapon,what a farce.

North Korea has been working at some ten sites (in Iran), including Natanz and Qom.Natanz is home to a fuel enrichment plant and a pilot fuel enrichment plant, the International Atomic Energy Agency said in a report on Iran's nuclear program published last week.

It also states that North Koreans are visiting Iran via third countries and many of them are being rotated in every three to six months.

The North Korean experts are from the country's so-called Room 99, which is directly supervised by the North's ruling Workers' Party Munitions Industry Department. The room, which can be translated as office or bureau, is widely believed to be engaged in exports of weapons and military technology.

South Korea's top spy agency, the National Intelligence Service, said it could not confirm the North Korean-Iranian cooperation, citing intelligence matters.

Iran obtained 19 of the missiles from North Korea, according to a cable dated Feb. 24 of this year. The cable is a detailed, highly classified account of a meeting between top Russian officials and an American delegation led by Vann H. Van Diepen, an official with the State Department’s nonproliferation division who, as a national intelligence officer several years ago, played a crucial role in the 2007 assessment of Iran’s nuclear capacity.

why wouldn't members of the axis of evil help each other. maybe of the united state wasn't focused on oil fields and instead focusing on n.korea and china arming other nations with nukes, the potential for ww3 wouldn't be so great.

Does it realy matter what is said at this point ? Iran will be attacked roughly a week to a couple of months after the US pulls out its troops from Iraq .

You can even bet that Saudi will help flip part of the bill , seeing how Iran targeted one of there representives .

How will the attack begin ? Perhaps some computer virus will launch an Irainian missel towards a friendly nation ?

Well now some media outlets are reporting that N. Korean scientists/doctors are located in Libya, Tunisia, and Egypt, and N. Korea will not let them back into the country. Apparently Lil Kim is afraid that they have learned the "tactics" of uprising and he doesn't want them spreading it upon return to home.

How did they get out in the first place then?

Or is this all propoganda?

Oh I don't doubt it. I just find it interesting that they cannot confirm N.K's cooperation. Why not?

If South Korea were to unveil the existing co-operatives working alongside the North, then this may very well put China in an awkward position, since Beijing is Pyongyang's main diplomatic backer and economic partner.

China urged regional powers on Monday to restart moribund nuclear disarmament talks with North Korea, with its foreign minister Yang Jiechi defending Beijing as an honest broker seeking to defuse confrontation with Pyongyang.

Yang made the call at a forum in Beijing to mark the sixth anniversary six-party talks, which offered North Korea economic and energy aid in return for dismantling its nuclear arms program and marked a high point for China as a broker on the world diplomatic stage.


This would also put stress on the renewed talks between the US and NK's nuclear program, which was brokered by China.

October 24, 2011

The United States and North Korea began two days of talks here on Monday that American officials have said will test the ground for a possible resumption of wider discussions on North Korea’s nuclear program.

A convoy of vehicles brought Kim Kye-gwan, North Korea’s first vice foreign minister, to the United States mission in Geneva exactly on schedule at 10 a.m. for the first round of talks with a team of American negotiators led by President Obama’s special envoy for North Korea policy, Stephen W. Bosworth.

Obama: US will act vs North Korea nuke proliferation

CANBERRA, Australia: President Barack Obama said Thursday that the United States will act firmly against any nuclear proliferation activities by North Korea.

Nov 17, 2011

In a speech to the Australian Parliament, Obama said the transfer of nuclear material by North Korea to other nations would be “considered a grave threat to the United States and our allies.”

The United States will “hold North Korea fully accountable for the consequences of such action,” he told the parliament while outlining US plans to stay invested across Asia and Australia, despite budget cuts back home.

Just more fuel for the propaganda fire..

If Iran truly wanted nukes I'm pretty sure they could buy some..
They have many nuclear armed friends..
Heck, at the right price Israel might sell them some.
