Actually the technology of having a nuke and detonating it isn't too complex... most reasonably accomplished physics teachers can tell you how ot do it.
Absolutely right. Basically it's only about getting your hands on Uranium and being able to enrich it (centrifuges). From there on it's as complex as cooking up a nice meal.

With the right people in their ranks ANY well funded organisation could produce nukes, not only the fission but the fusion kind as well.

South Korea is our ally, though.
No matter what country is an ally or not an ally, diminishing the amount of nuclear weapons in this world is very important in an attempt to dismantle as much weapons that fit within the WMD category.

In my opinion, the United States should really put a halt to South Korea's nuclear weapons program immediately. This will spark nuclear proliferation in Asia and will motivate North Korea to build nuclear weapons.

Of course it matters. It's one thing to say that the world would be better without WMDs. But it is overly simplistic to say that it doesn't matter which countries are allied with which or that the United States should put a halt to S. Korea's anything. Additionally, I don't think N.Korea needs any other motivation than it's own paranoia about its national security.
Do you believe that N. Korea does not have nuclear weapons?

I find it odd that another thread had proclaimed that the ROK wanted North Korea to have their Nuke Program and supported North Koreas contiuance of a Nuke program.

Yet now the question is asked "Should something be done about the ROK'S nuke program?"

If the ROK supports North Koreas program as alledged before. Should not the North support the Souths?

Nah. the cars are meant to be built cheaply. You get what you pay for. But cameras etc. some amazing stuff is rolling off the assembly lines.
They targeted the consumers who needed an affordable car... and that market is big.
Korea never REALLY went out to make a Land Rover equivilent... makes sense when you consider that the "Jeep" style car doesn't sell in Korea.

The program has been halted.
One thing is clear. The need for South Korea to possess nuclear weapons is inversely related to America's commitment to the region in keeping the possible Chinese threat at bay.

I answered this one before. RoK wants NKs to have a Nuke is only half the story of a half truth. There are those who are NUTS who believe that this Nuke is being developed to protect the entire Korean people. This is lunacy. The country is pretty split on the whole matter... I'm sure you can relate to that too as an American. Basically some people are so deep in anti-Americanism that they cease to percieve reality. They forget all about the past and as a result lose all reference to assess the present.
NK does not support SK like SK's population sees the NK (as a misunderstood brother). The attitude is rather hostile, though North Korea's main foe is the US.

All this nonsense can only go too far.
I'm so confused. The younger generation are better clothed, better fed, better educated... they can do all this brilliant stuff but their ability to see the world ... or even see their back yards is so ridiculously poor.
I'm usually a minority in my age bracket for my view, which is much more representative of people between the ages from 40 to the death bed. They knew what it was really like. I take their word for it, not some politician's.

Don't take it out of context 13th. I was attempting to point out the inconsistanceies in some of this argument.

Seems a common procedure for some to worry about the ROK having a nuke that could range them if the balloon went up and they stepped in.
