In such conditions, it seems that controls, sanctions and interdictions applied as international efforts to stop North Korea’s nuclear program over the last decade almost failed. At this time, North Korea has the ability to dissimulate many things which are not being on international control. In fact, if centrifuges can now be built, these are easily hidden from satellites and prying inspectors. “We won’t necessarily see anything more than what the North Koreans want us to see” said Josua Pollack, a Washington based expert on nuclear proliferation.
The nuclear issue of North Korea is critical for the United States because nuclear bombs could potentially be used as an irresponsible reaction in the context of the US machinations to change North Korea’s political system.
