North Korea Continues Reactor

North Korea has resumed construction on their experimental light water reactor, at Yongbyon.

The work comes as the North continues to prepare for an underground nuclear test.

Work could be completed on the reactor with the next two years.

When fully operational, this facility would be capable of producing enough enriched uranium for another bomb, each year.

It is expected for this reactor to be but a prototype for later ones.

Unless China completely cuts off the country from aid, there is little more the world can do, to stop the construction.
