This current confrontation with North Korea (DPRK) started with rumors in 2002 that the North was runing a uranium enrichment program which led the
Bush administration to cut off it's shipments of fuel oil which was part of the
jointly signed by the DPRK and the US in 1994. This led the
DPRK to fire up their nuclear reactors to compensate for the loss of fuel oil and since the Agreed Framework no longer applied they were not held to
keeping their reactors off line.
This all started when Colin Powell accused the DPRK of operating a uranium enrichment facility. How he knew about this facility is still a mystery.
"If" the US's intelligence was able to determine that the North was running enrichment experiments, then how was it that the US wasn't able to
discover that in 2000 the South Koreans were running enrichment experiments
of their own? These
South Korean enrichment experiments took place two years prior to the confrontation with the North and were taking place in a South Korean nuclear
research facility which the IAEA was supposed to be regularlly inspecting. The IAEA inspectors were somehow banned from inspecting the building that
housed the enrichment machinery, now how is that possible? There is still no word on how this machinery was discovered.
The South claims that only a few grams of 80% pure uranium was produced. The IAEA stated that this level of purity is only used for weapons
Where was the US and the IAEA on this? How was it that an unknown quantity of enriched uranium could be produced right under the US's and IAEA's
nose? The IAEA made no comments on the where abouts of any of the enriched uranium, where is it! How did the South aquire the enrichment machinery and
who sold it to them? I'm sure the stork didn't bring it. If the US really does track all of this stuff like it says it does, why did it turn a blind
eye to this and why didn't the IAEA set of alarms when they were banned from inspecting the facility? If they had this much evidence that the North
had carried out this level of purification it would be a charred cinder by now. Hell, you don't even hear about it in the news.
Perhaps the South has a covert nuclear weapons program and is being aided by the US. Perhaps the South along with Taiwan have been co-operating in a
covert nuclear weapons program similar to the one that Reagan shut down in the mid-1980's? Who knows, may be they tested a Nuke covertly with India?
Why arn't we on South Korea like we are the North?
