N.Korea Will Have '48 Nuclear Weapons by 2016'
North Korea could have up to 48 nuclear weapons by the end of 2016, according to a U.S. think tank.
The latest report by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security made such an estimate after reviewing the North's centrifuge program and light-water reactors. The amount of weapons-grade uranium and plutonium Pyongyang can make depends on the level at which it uses its centrifuge plants.
| Is that how many they'll have, or how many they'll have left after selling some to Iran, Saudi Arabia, and whoever else has enough cash?|
|Brilliant insight, boys, brilliant. Really -- it depends on the level at which they use their centrifuges, does it?|
