Iran, North Korea in Joint Nuclear Tests

Posted on December 31, 2010


The news story about Iran and North Korea joining in testing nuclear bombs and also collaborating on missile systems to deliver these boms comes as no surprise. But this news further highlights the folly of Obama’s desire to disarm America. Obama has already limited the number of nuclear weapons the US can have with the passing of the new START Treaty.

The Start treaty puts the number of US warheads on par with those of Russia. The Start treaty does not take into consideration threats from Iran, North Korea and the massive number of warhead held by China. The Start treaty doesn’t cover the number of warheads in space by Russia and China. No one talks about space weapons but the US, Russia and China have them.

This is exactly the wrong time to be disarming America.SHAW

Below is a news story on Iran and North Korea teaming up to advance their nuclear weapons and missiles.

On December 24, a research report from the South Korean Foreign Ministry Institute indicated that North Korea would carry out another nuclear bomb test after the beginning of the year. — South Korean media reported earlier this month that the North was digging a tunnel in preparation for such a nuclear test.

At the same time, reports from inside Iran indicate that a team of Iranian nuclear scientists have been sent to North Korea and that the two governments have agreed on a joint nuclear test in North Korea with a substantial financial reward for the Kim Jong-Il government.

It is no secret that Iran and North Korea are collaborating in a ballistic missile program. The North Koreans provided Iran with the technology and know-how to build the Shahab-3 medium-range ballistic missile, which is a copy of the Nodong-1 missile. The Shahb- 3 missile has a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles) covering all of the U.S. military bases in the Middle East and the entire country of Israel.

Most alarming, recent WikiLeaks releases reveal that Iran obtained a cache of advanced missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads (based on a Russian design) from North Korea. Now, for the first time, Iran has the capability to target every capital in Western Europe.

Not only are these two governments continuing to collaborate on the missile projects, they are also conspiring on Iran’s nuclear bomb development. This relationship has not only led to sharing data on previous nuclear tests by North Korea, but played a part in Iran’s capability to build the more advanced P2 centrifuges that produce 2.5 times more enriched uranium than the first generation P1 model.

The recent revelations about North Korea’s uranium enrichment plant also raise the possibility that North Korea is enriching uranium on Iran’s behalf. Iran has always maintained that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes; that it is their right to produce nuclear fuel for their nuclear power plants. 

In order to avoid a possible military reaction by the West, Iran is working covertly with North Korea until such a time they are capable of weaponizing their ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads.
