North Korea says it will restart all facilities at its main Yongbyon nuclear complex, which it shut in 2007, including a mothballed reactor.

A statement carried by KCNA news agency said the move would bolster North Korea's nuclear forces "in quality and quantity".

The move is the latest in a series of measures by Pyongyang in the wake of its third nuclear test in February.

It has been angered by UN sanctions and joint US-South Korea military drills.

The reactor at Yongbyon was closed in July 2007 as part of a disarmament-for-aid deal that later stalled.

oh dear oh dear.

Still, this should provide a nice static target don't you think?

I think I hear an earthquake starting near the Korean Peninsula? Oh wait, maybe it's just HAARP ramping up?

Well...............lets hope to hell that the west doesnt pull an Israeli type attack on it ......
We have F22 and B2 aircraft in the region now.....
Concievably they would be able to do this very mission with aplomb.....
The temptaton to swat Kims arse is mounting with the rhetoric.....
China may even attack NK to shut this maniac down (just like we did to Ghadafi) thus aquiring the northern half of the penninsula for their own would be a hard propaganda line for us to
