I have a feeling all the Bush haters are gonna bitch about him letting this happen


Hmmm, well, no not really. I hate the man.....but it's not about 'Bush' anyway, I think.....ever. He just says the words (most times). It was Donald Rumsfeld who sold them the reactors back in in 2000.


It's an odd one though isn't it? Becuase they have been known to be developing nuclear weapons for a long time and it was obvious that they would have to test them....just like our countries have tested all our weapons, including nuclear weapons. It's just makes sense.....if you make weapons then you would expect at test.


However, there seems an element of suprise that North Korea would even consider testing....which I don't quite understand....it was always going to be on the cards at some point.


Having said this......I think that the test by N. Korea is going to cause a rush to arms in the region, with other countries thinking they need an A-Bomb......which leads to an even bigger problem. We should be getting rid of the A-Bomb...and that's every country.

North Korea Nuke Test Derails Iran Invasion?

Has Rummy's madcap dictator arming resulted in a blowback that undermines the Neo-Con war machine?


Paul J. Watson | October 9 2006


North Korea's underground atomic weapon test is a wild card that could potentially derail the Neo-Con battle plan to carry out air strikes on Iran. Will the myopic hubris of the Bushists make them blind to the incompatability of selling a war on a nation years away from nukes while another openly proliferates, or could it just make the likelihood of a false flag terror attack more likely?


Russia is now saying that the test was far greater than first reported, in the region of 5,000 tons to 15,000 tons of TNT, an upper limit which would put it on a par with the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.


Reports concerning developments in North Korea's nuclear program are routinely absent the "memory-holed" fact that it was Donald Rumsfeld, former non-executive director of ABB, that signed off on a $200 million dollar contract to sell nuclear reactors to the Stalinist state in November 2000. Has Rumsfeld's wanton act of chaos-mongering resulted in a form of blowback that could eviserate the entire roadmap of his administration?


How does the test affect the global and domestic propaganda campaign to justify air strikes on Iran?


Mike Rivero over at What Really Happened reckons North Korea has "put the screws," to any US-led invasion.


"It will be hard for Bush to sell an invasion of Iran because it might someday make nuclear weapons when North Korea definitely has them now. Bush has to attack North Korea before Iran, and who will support an attack on a nation that actually HAS nuclear weapons of mass destruction."




This makes a lone Israeli attack the more likely scenario, but there is no doubt it will be backed by covert US support and a huge domestic distraction.


Fox News seemingly welcomed the nuke test as beneficial for the Bush administration in that it was the only story capable of knocking Foleygate off the air.


"Never mind the tremendous implications of this -- it's all about GOP politics, all the time, on Fox "News," write News Hounds.


The world has been made infinitely more dangerous, due not to the significantly increased danger posed by Kim Jong-il, but because the Bush regime has to go to even greater lengths to sell an attack on a nation ten to fifteen years away from producing the bomb.


The Neo-Fascists are more desperate than ever to manufacture a false flag event that can propel Iran back above North Korea in the fear stakes. Watch for the Rovian rhetoric to be shifted from Iran's pursuit of nuclear technology to their alleged support of terrorists in Lebanon and Iraq.


Kim-Jong-il may be a mentally unstable lunatic but he's not short of geopolitical nous. He knows that the Bush war machine only targets defenseless tinpot dictators and leaves real members of the nuclear club alone.


But his actions have greased the skids for a desperate lunge on the part of the Straussians - the most likely outcome being a huge attack on Jerusalem or Tel Aviv blamed on Iranian backed Hezbollah, providing the Israelis with a UN mandate to retaliate that would stifle the voices of enough critics to ractchet up the armageddon meter one more notch.

^ Thats a classic tabloid article


Notice the headline - North Korea Nuke Test Derails Iran Invasion? (quite dramatic isnt it?)


then read the article - "could potentially derail the Neo-Con battle plan to carry out air strikes on Iran" - Mmm since when is an air-strike condsidered an invasion??


And the bit about Donald Rumsfield - if you read the guardian link it mentions this - (funny how its the Bush adminstration gets the blame)


The reactor deal was part of President Bill Clinton's policy of persuading the North Korean regime to positively engage with the west.

Nor does it state what a non-executive director actually is.

Love all the alarmists tones in there, and the fact that it impiles that any big attack on Israel will be down to the US, and what a sensationalist last paragraph! Talk about scaremongering.


Still thats the best article the Daily Star have ever run. Wonderfully Spun as well - Alisaster Campbell - are you reading this? eat yer heart out!

we are seeing a re-run of pre ww2 here. Will Russia and China let NK keep its nukes? Because if they do, its the start of the end. Iran will be in the OK to make them and more and more nations will and one day most nations will have them and can anyone say nuclear war.....I dont think NK would ever us their nukes unless attacked, but the message it sends to the world and the repercussions this will have will be deadly.


Will the world look away and appease like with Hitler? or get off their asses and do something for once? THis time its way bigger then any nation or fascist, becaus Nukes are in play now, unlike pre ww2.
