Hardly breaking news
SEOUL, South Korea - South Korea's Defense Ministry said North Korea is believed to have about 110 pounds of plutonium, enough to produce up to seven nuclear weapons.Someone in the Defense Ministry needed a report on this? Half of what AP is reporting above is old news. Either the reporter doesn't get out much or AP is very unimaginative. It wouldn't surprise me if it is the later.
In its biennial defense report, released Friday, the ministry also said the North is believed to be capable of producing biological weapons, including anthrax weapons, and possesses up to 5,000 tons of toxic agents.
The report described North Korea "as a serious threat, considering the serious nature of its nuclear test and threat of weapons of mass destruction," the ministry said in a statement.
The report said North Korea has the capability to launch a surprise attack on South Korea without repositioning its troops because it deploys about 70 percent of its ground forces south of the capital, Pyongyang.
North Korea "is consistently preparing for war for a long period and is likely to keep this military policy in the future," the report said.
I think there is something seriously wrong with AP's reporting out of the Korean peninsula. If you want further evidence, read this. A country where food and electricity are scarce is going digital.
Yes and I'm going to be #1 in the blogosphere next year. You can take it to the bank.
Note- I've been wrong on AP reporting before. Click here, the scientists had cloned a dog in the past. TFM will
