Bush's Gift to Jong Il
Dr. James Gordon Prather
Nuclear weapons physicist
Former nuclear bomb tester at Lawrence Livermore
Former technical director of nuclear bomb testing at Sandia
Former chief scientist of the U.S. Army
U.S. Navy veteran
According to ABC News , U.S. intelligence officials have told the
White House there is "a real possibility" that the Democratic
People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is preparing to conduct an
underground test of a nuclear weapon.
In particular, the Koreans have been observed unloading "large reels of
cable" outside an underground facility in Northeast DPRK, suspected to
be a nuke UGT site. The nuke to be tested would be placed at the end of
a tunnel, and arming, fusing, firing and diagnostic cables would be run
from the nuke to control and diagnostic bunkers outside the tunnel.
Then the tunnel would be "plugged", to contain the nuke explosion.
If the Koreans do conduct a nuke test - or even if they fake it with
a few tons of high explosive - we'll never know whether the test was
a success or not, unless the test is successful, the confinement in the
tunnel is insufficient and the nuke explosion vents, allowing
radioactive debris to escape into the atmosphere.
Quite a bit can be determined about the design of the nuke and its
performance from a radio-chemical analysis of such debris.
But absent such debris, we'll have to rely on seismic yield, which is
not very accurate even when the depth of burial is known, the
surrounding geologic media is well characterized and the exact time of
detonation is known. We won't know any of these things.
So, as was the case back in 1998, when the Pakistanis said they
successfully tested  a half-dozen nukes of different designs at an
until-then unknown UGT test facility, if the Koreans say they
successfully tested a nuke we'll just have to take their word for it.
However, we do know that Jong Il has - courtesy George Bush -
enough weapons-grade Plutonium to make at least half a dozen
first-generation implosion nukes.
Why "courtesy George Bush"?
Each no-nuke signatory to the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear
Weapons (NPT) agrees to conclude with the International Atomic Energy
Agency (IAEA) a Safeguards agreement. All "source" and "special
fissionable materials" as well as any activities involving them are to
be made subject to the IAEA Safeguards agreement. The IAEA is
thereafter responsible for preventing their "diversion".
When Bush-Cheney-Bolton came to power, Iran was required to subject to
IAEA Safeguards all uranium, plutonium and thorium - in whatever form
and however obtained - as well as all activities wherein safeguarded
materials are transformed, produced or processed.
But in 1992, the IAEA had essentially accused DPRK of having a
clandestine nuke program.
The DPRK denied that it did - and there is no evidence even now that
it did, then - but under the Agreed Framework of 1994, the Koreans
"froze" all their nuclear programs, subjecting them to IAEA
verification. In return, an international consortium - led by South
Korea - was to construct in the DPRK two free conventional nuclear
power plants. In the meantime, President Clinton promised them annual
supplementary shipments of fuel oil.
Former U.S. president Bill Clinton also vowed he wouldn't attack the
DPRK - or any other NPT-signatory - with nukes so long as they
remained a NPT-signatory.
So, when Bush-Cheney-Bolton came to power, the Koreans were certified
to have not diverted any "special fissionable materials" to a military
So, Bush couldn't nuke them.
Well, that would never do.
So, in his 2002 State of the Union Address , Bush said:
"Our second goal is to prevent regimes that sponsor terror from
threatening America or our friends and allies with weapons of mass
"Some of these regimes have been pretty quiet since September the
11th. But we know their true nature.
"North Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass
destruction, while starving its citizens.
"States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis
of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world".
Then, in October 2002, Anonymous [I] told media sycophants that
Anonymous [II] "admitted" to him at a cocktail party that DPRK had a
clandestine uranium-nuke program.
Never mind that the DPRK vehemently denies to this day having any such
program. Or that our intelligence community doesn't have the foggiest
notion where this clandestine uranium-nuke program might be.
Bush promptly ceased fuel oil shipments, thereby unilaterally
abrogating the Agreed Framework.
That caused the DPRK to withdraw from the NPT and resume their nuclear
programs - only this time they announced they intended to divert
their weapons-grade plutonium to a military purpose.
Like producing at least a half-dozen nukes.
So why not test one?
Or at least fake it?

West has kept billions of Iran's EURODIF investments for 30 years In
1975, Iran took a very costly 10% financial participation in EURODIF
uranium enrichment plant being built in France. Iran paid $1 billion
towards the purchase of a 10% share of ownership in EURODIF and agreed
to buy a quota from the new plant. But after the Iranian revolution in
1979, neither was Iran given any enriched uranium nor did it get back
its investment from EURODIF. The U.S. was also paid to deliver new fuel
and upgrade its power in accordance with a contract signed before the
revolution. U.S. gave neither the fuel nor the billions of dollars it
had received for it. Germany was paid for in full, billions of dollars
for the two nuclear facilities in Busher, but after three decades,
Germany has refused to export any equipments or refund the money.
