North Korea to restart nuclear reactor to fuel arms program
Yeah, that is a disturbing development. I think either that or another article said that fully restarting that plant could produce enough plutonium in the spent fuel rods(which would have to be properly extracted) to enable Kim make another plutonium nuke each year the plant is in full operation. And the NK officials have publicy declared their desire to use this plant both for electricity production AND to further build-up their nuclear arsenal.
So yeah, things just keep looking worse, as you said.
Hopefully, the build-up of Chinese forces are to be against NK, not SK/US.
The article I read swings both ways on that aspect, so I don't know what China's intentions are.
