North Korea will bolster its nuclear arsenal "in a newly developed way"
North Korea said Monday it will bolster its nuclear arsenal "in a newly developed way" to counter what it calls U.S. hostile policy and military threats toward the communist nation.

The North also claimed in a separate statement that the U.S. has brought "heavy weapons" into a truce village that straddles the divided Koreas, warning of strong military action if they are not quickly withdrawn.

North Korea has stepped up its fiery rhetoric against the U.S. in recent weeks after Washington sided with Seoul in condemning Pyongyang for the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship in March.

"The recent disturbing development on the Korean Peninsula underscores the need for the DPRK to bolster its nuclear deterrent in a newly developed way," a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.

The North did not elaborate on what the "newly developed way" means. The country runs nuclear arms programs based on plutonium and uranium.

In a separate statement that followed, the Panmunjom Mission of the North's Korean People's Army (KPA) claimed the U.S. brought "various types of heavy weapons" into the truce village on June 26.

Panmunjom is jointly guarded by troops from the U.S and the two divided Koreas. It is where the U.S.-led U.N. Command signed a truce with China and North Korea to end the 1950-53 Korean War

When are gonna develop an anti nuke weapon? like antimatter or something. it is long overdue.

Some years ago, NK complained that US Army had issued “hand-held nuclear weapons” at Panmunjom. A guard on the north side had spotted this while observing the south side. Turned out to be a stainless Thermos bottle of coffee.

Radioactive gas detected after North Korea nuclear claim
Posted: 21 June 2010 2321 hrs

SEOUL : South Korean scientists detected a high level of xenon gas -- a by-product of atomic tests -- two days after North Korea last month claimed it staged a successful nuclear experiment, officials said Monday.

The North on May 12 announced it had conducted a nuclear fusion reaction, a claim greeted with scepticism in the South at the time because of the technical difficulty inherent in the fusion process.

Xenon is produced during the nuclear fission process.

Monday's Chosun Ilbo newspaper said the xenon readings taken near the border raised speculation the North had carried out some sort of small-scale nuclear test aimed at developing fusion technology.

"The amount of xenon detected in the air at the Geojin monitoring site in Goseong county on May 14 was eight times more than normal," a science and education ministry official told AFP on condition of anonymity. (More at link)

As long as you have unstable fissionables, you can theoretically set them off with a concussive blast of an FAE - Fuel Air Explosive.

Also you could just put small amounts in a SCUD warhead and it would scatter over a fairly large area leading to panic at the target city.

 Quoting: Phennommennonn



Such an anti-nuke weapon would have to be a tremendous energy sink... it would have to suck up massive energy in a short period of time to render any nuke impotent.

Such a weapon would be a "gravity bomb" that would suck up the energy into a singularity... and, poof, gone.

Who is developing gravity-bomb-singularities technology?

They have rockets that can reach the West Coast.

What they don't have are MIRV warheads or even (at least that's the common opinion) a single ballistic warhead.

But wether it's a Hiroshima or an H Bomb, a terrible toll of human lives would be taken.

Japan has the most to lose, as they are well within current NK rocket range.

Iran isn't the problem.

Iran may be currently under a militant regime, but Iranians are the most educated and most westernized of the Middle Eastern Nations (excluding Israel of course). This was the case when the Shah was kicked out and has carried on at a slow pace since.

Historically they have been manipulated by Britain and their puppet the Shah, but as people they aren't unreasonable.

The simple logic of nuclear arms means that possessing them infers MAD. You can have nukes, but if you use them, you will be nuked by another more powerful nuclear neighbor.

Nukes buy Iran a seat on the Security Council.

Korea is a collapsing regime. If Kim Jong Il dies, the whole situation might dissolve. OR a new nut may rise.

Either way, Korea is bankrupt and starving.

But Iran is a nation with oil money and education, and the medieval messianic regime may yet change in the near future. An ambivalent Iran isn't a global threat, just a new nation flexing its muscles in a nuclear world.

The AQ Khan nuclear proliferation network sold already assembled nuclear weapons to both Iran and NK.
In addition, AQ Khan sold plans for a compact nuclear warhead which fits the Dong and Shahib missiles which NK and Iran use.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 977055

"Sunday, June 15, 2008

An international smuggling ring that sold bomb-related parts to Libya, Iran and North Korea also managed to acquire blueprints for an advanced nuclear weapon, according to a draft report by a former top U.N. arms inspector that suggests the plans could have been shared secretly with any number of countries or rogue groups.

These would have been ideal for two of Khan's other major customers, Iran and North Korea," wrote Albright, now president of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security. "They both faced struggles in building a nuclear warhead small enough to fit atop their ballistic missiles, and these designs were for a warhead that would fit."

At 52, I went back to college to get my degree. I did a research paper about AQ Khan's nuclear network.
Halliburton facilitated sales of centifuge equipment through a middle east dummy office so they could go around the Iran sales embargo.
Funny how it always goes back to the very same players.
