ABSTRACT
If North Korea's leaders want face time with the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush, they have a funny way of showing it. As U.S. diplomats travelled around the world to discuss a possible war on Saddam Hussein's Iraq, another member of President Bush's "axis of evil" raised its voice. North Korea declared that it would restart a nuclear reactor capable of churning out the plutonium for atomic bombs. That came just days after U.S. and Spanish naval forces seized--and later released--a freighter crammed with North Korean Scud missiles in the Arabian Sea. The decision to fire up a 5-megawatt reactor at Yongbyon, which has been mothballed since a 1994 agreement with the United States, brings the North Koreans one step closer to throwing off all the nuclear restraints they had accepted.
