North Korea says it has the bomb

In a speech to the UN General Assembly, the North Korean Vice Foreign Minister said that they had reprocessed all their spent nuclear fuel into nuclear weapons to provide a deterrent against the US.

"We have already made clear that we have already reprocessed 8,000 wasted fuel rods and transformed them into arms," he said.

Asked if the fuel had been turned into actual weapons, he replied "We declared that we weaponised this."

Yet another example of how Iraq was an enormous foreign-policy mis-step for America.
