N Korea reactor likely resumed plutonium production for weapons: 38 North

Commercial satellite images show that a key reactor at North Korea’s Yongbyon nuclear research facility may have resumed production of plutonium for nuclear weapons, according to an article posted on 38 North, a website dedicated to analysis of North Korea.

Analysts Frank Pabian, Joseph Bermudez and Jack Liu said the photos from February 25 indicate that the 5-megawatt reactor at the facility continued to show signs of operation as indicated by steam-vapor plumes emanating from the generator hall and river ice melt near the reactor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hardly compelling evidence, but then again, nuclear weapons are the only real guarantee against invasion, so who could blame North Korea, given the track record of the US government in breaking promises not to invade nations that disarm.
