North Korea planning Nuclear test

What do you make of this story?

In light of its recent missile tests and the rhetoric coming from the U.S. administration, is it really so hard to believe?

I'm in two minds about this whole thing.

  • As a nation it is their right to build weapons to defend themselves.
  • As one of the few truly dangerous countries on the planet, it of course is a cause for concern.
The same thing is going on with the cat and mouse game being played out between Iran and the U.S.

On this I'm clear -

The U.S. has no right to dictate which nations develop Nuclear weapons, end of story. Whether the current administration likes it not is not the issue.

Its also rich of the other nuclear states to criticise anyone else for developing this technology.

I do hope Blair finally grows a spine and refuses to go along with any plans to impose sanctions (or god forbid, military action) against these countries.
