North Korea Cites US Threat as Reason to Expand Nuclear Arsenal

At the United Nations last week, Vice Foreign Minister Pak Kil Yon said that North Korea would continue to expand its nuclear arsenal in order to deter what it perceives as American and South Korean aggression in the region. He said North Korea has vowed to strengthen its nuclear arsenal because of the threat from the United States, and that as long as U.S. nuclear aircraft carriers sail around North Korea, the country's nuclear deterrent should not be abandoned but strengthened further. Pak's statement is somewhat discordant compared to recent North Korean behavior that promotes an international environment of reduced tension while leadership issues are deliberated in Pyongyang.

UAV Attacks May Have Pre-empted Terrorist Planning

The Pakistan Army dismissed reports that a surge in US unmanned aerial vehicle strikes on Islamist militants in northwest Pakistan disrupted planning for Mumbai-style attacks in European cities. A military spokesman said there is no information or intelligence that militants were plotting attacks. However, US and international media reported the UAV attacks pre-empted militant planning for attacks in London, and cities in France and Germany, similar to the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. Potential damage avoided is a good news event for the US that produces many ripple effects in a terrorist community.
