North Korea has a German press report in 2010 brought in two secret nuclear tests warheads with highly enriched uranium to explode. The “Welt am Sonntag” reported, citing Western security circles, some intelligence agencies assumed that the government in Pyongyang had conducted at least one of these tests for Iran.
This would mean that Tehran has been built with North Korean help, and ignited a nuclear warhead. According to the newspaper “Welt am Sonntag”, this assumption is based on data from the Organization of the contract for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban (CTBTO). Accordingly, the Swedish nuclear physicist Lars-Erik De Geer is based on data from monitoring stations in South Korea, Japan and Russia believe that North Korea instead of the two secret uranium tests as in two earlier tests in 2006 and 2009 used plutonium. In January, reported the journal “Nature” in advance of de Geer research results.
The longtime director of the Policy Planning Staff in the German Defense Ministry, Hans Rühle, writes in the “Welt am Sonntag” that “some of which now go out intelligence that North Korea has actually conducted a nuclear test in 2010, at least for Iran.” This would mean that the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA also provides a document, “which was the religious leader Ayatollah Khomeini himself, who decided in 1984, the resume after the overthrow of the Shah’s nuclear weapons program set.”
Three other articles to consider at this particular point in time:
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has urged troops on the heavily armed border with rival South Korea to stay on high alert during a rare visit to the Demilitarized Zone.
Kim’s visit to Panmunjom comes amid a flurry of escalating militaristic rhetoric and threats from North Korea aimed at U.S. ally South Korea just days after Washington and Pyongyang agreed to a nuclear deal seen as a breakthrough after years of deadlock.
Thus the meeting between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama on Sunday is probably a final notification that events are now in motion which will occur with or without U.S. support. The first window for such an attack is open now through May as when the summer sand storms and shortened days begin, the practicality of hitting the Iranians in such an operation does also.
And the “doomed to repeat history” North Korea scenario originated by Madeleine Albright under the Clinton Administration is now being perfected by Hillary Clinton:
In return for food aid from the United States, North Korea has agreed to stop nuclear activity at its main facility in Yongbyon, both countries said Wednesday.
North Korea has also agreed to a moratorium on long-range missile launches.
“Today’s announcement represents a modest first step in the right direction,” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said. “We, of course, will be watching closely and judging North Korea’s new leaders by their actions.”
Wednesday’s news might be the most encouraging since 2008, when six-party talks last broke down over North Korea’s nuclear program. Since then, there has been tension and uncertainty, including a nuclear test in 2009 and the death of longtime leader Kim Jong Il in 2011.
