North Korea Resumes Building Nuclear Reactors

File this under, SomethingHasToBeDoneSoonButDon'tAskMeBecauseIDon'tHaveASolution.

North Korea has restarted work on two nuclear reactors that was suspended under a 1994 landmark deal with the United States, a Japanese newspaper reported on Thursday.

Quoting unidentified U.S. government and other sources in Washington, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun said North Korea had resumed building a 50-megawatt reactor in Yongbyon and a 200-megawatt reactor in Thaechon, north of Pyongyang.

So is it time to pull an Israel and blow the hell out of the sites?
