Powell says South Korea nuclear experiments "not serious"
Powell says South Korea nuclear experiments "not serious": minister


SEOUL : US Secretary of State Colin Powell has been quoted as saying there is no comparison with the secret nuclear experiments previously carried out by South Korea and ongoing atomic programmes in North Korea and Iran.

"There is no comparison between the South Korean nuclear issue and nuclear weapons programmes in North Korea and Iran," Powell was quoted as saying when he met South Korean Unification Minister Chung Dong-Young.


"The (South Korean) nuclear experiments are not something serious," he was quoted as saying. His quotes were given in Korean by the Unification Ministry and no English-language quotes were available.

North Korea has accused the United States of applying double standards concerning the nuclear issues of the two Koreas.

3. Same Powell who went before the UN yapping about Iraqi WMD?
He should be ashamed to open his mouth any more.

4. At least they aren't drinking and smoking cigarettes
Next thing you know, those South Koreans will start going steady and sassing back their teachers, clergymen, and parents.

Then we'll have to nip that thing in the bud!

6. Here's your card

To paraphrase the old freeze movements 'One nuclear bomb could ruin your whole day!'

We have had had several older down-winder relatives that have died from some type of cancer. It might not get you today, but the rate the world is managing this abomination, it might eventually get everybody, if Eco-collapse don't get us all first.

Have a nice day :-)
