N. Korea to 'Weaponize'

Not only has North Korea rejected the new U.N. sanctions meant to punish the country for its recent nuclear test, it’s now vowed to embark on a new uranium enrichment program and "weaponize" all the plutonium it owns. The communist nation added that it wouldn’t abandon its nuclear programs, claiming a need to defend itself against a hostile U.S. policy and possible future U.S. attacks against the country. The rejected U.N. resolution imposes new sanctions on North Korea’s weapons exports and economic dealings, and allows inspections of suspect cargo at sea.
