Proliferation Update

North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Su Hon said today that his country has turned the uranium from 8,000 spent fuel rods into weapons and that the danger of war on the peninsula is "snowballing." The number of fuel rods reprocessed suggests that North Korea may have as many as eight nuclear weapons.
