But would it not be equally wise for the UN to query the nuclear pursuits of, say France, Trident submarines, Israel, South Africa, and others. It must be strange to North Koreans to note that on these proliferations there is silence.
When Mordechai Vanunu told the truth about Israel's long-concealed nuclear production plant in the Negev desert he was promptly drugged, manacled, and given a life sentence of solitary confinement - with not a word of protest from Britain or Italy, where the Mossad agents conducted this nauseous exercise.
Is this a slight case of double standards?
