Should we do something actively abour S.Korea's nuke issue?

We should not ONLY deal with nukes in Iran or N.Korea, but S.Korea too.

China hopes to solve S.Korea's nuke issue within IAEA

VIENNA, Nov. 25 (Xinhuanet) -- China hopes that South Korea will continue to cooperate fully with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in providing speedily relevant information concerning its nuclear activities so as to bring about an early solution to the issue within the framework of the agency, a seniorChinese diplomat said on Thursday ...

It sounds like S. Korea is cooperating with the IAEA. Exactly who are the "we" you are referring to?
On Friday, IAEA's board of governors criticized South Korea for conducting plutonium and uranium experiments in 1982 and 2000, but refrained from tougher options, including possible referral to the Security Council.

Of course N. Korea is upset over what it sees as double standards.
Do you think further steps need to be taken?

With "we" I mean international community.

Thanks for the good LINK.

Yes, I think we should treat the S.Korea nuke issue even serious as that of N.Korea, otherwise it is indeed double standards.

In the PAST it (SK) was cheating regards the nuke thing, we gotta make sure it can NEVER cheat more in the FUTURE, so tough measures are needed to watch them carefully

South Korea is our ally, though.

The experiments were probably technology experimenters... to see if we could build a nuke over night if we needed to. I highly doubt there were any plans to actual produce, store etc. but the need to be sure of being able to build a bomb is really no secret. We live in one of the world's bad neighborhoods where although fighting's not frequent, once it erupts, it erupts bad.
Then again the one in 2000 with Kim Dae-jung... that guy was some piece of work. Who knows what he was thinking. Wouldn't be surprised if he was doing the nuke experiments for the North Koreans. Well that's going a bit too far but you know what I mean.

I don't know what you mean.

Build a nuke overnight? Too optimistic.

1. U gotta alot of time to test it

2. U gotta alot of time to fit it into missiles or try it on aircrafts.

This is a topic all 18-25 year olds should follow very closely.

The way our Commander and Cheif has been talking (especially while in Chile), makes me think he is pondering taking action.

North Korea keeps lying, Saddam kept lying...

"Build a nuke overnight" is an expression. Basically means if you need one, you can make one right away.
Now this is the challenge that South Korea had, how do you do it without testing the weapon?
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. It's really about the materials because they are so well controlled. However, how do you know you got it right without testing, right?
Fitting into missiles and aircraft isn't a problem for South Korea. South Korea produces some of the best high tech products nowadays and even has experience building fighter jets so it shouldn't be a big deal. Though I don't see South Korea doing any missile delivery because I think the only significant kind of surface to surface missile South Korea has is the MLRS systems.
