North Korea has advanced nuclear capabilities, what do you think?


A top US envoy has said that evidence of a new North Korean nuclear programme is both disappointing and provocative, and was in violation of a UN resolution.

A US nuclear scientist who recently toured the North Korean Uranium enrichment facility said he was “stunned” by the sophistication of the reactor.

We sent our reporters out onto the streets to find out what you thought about one of the world’s most secretive regimes gaining a nuclear capability.

Woman on the Street “It’s all been a bit too quiet on the global armeggedon front recently, so this should shake things up a bit.”

Dave Wright, Survivalist

Man on the Street “I don’t see the problem.  The US had a lunatic with a large nuclear capability for eight years, and he never pressed any bright red buttons.  Apart from the fake one they put in his office, obviously.”

Angela Williams, Democrat

Man on the Street “This is just another clear demonstration of North Korean technological superiority over six or seven mid-sized African nations.”

Comrade Carter, Communist

“Boring.  Call me when they have a missile capable of reaching the Thames Valley.”

Michelle Datchet, Rocket Scientist

“Man, those North Koreans are inventing all the cool nuclear stuff these days. When was the last time we invented anything that terrified the entire world?”
