SEOUL: US monitors of North Korea's nuclear program left the communist nation after the regime ordered them out and vowed to restart its reactor

in anger over UN criticism of its recent rocket launch.

The four Americans arrived yesterday in Beijing on a flight from Pyongyang but declined to speak to reporters. Their departure came a day after UN nuclear inspectors left the North. One US official remains in Pyongyang and will leave today, the State Department said.

The pullout of all international inspectors will leave the global community with no onsite means to monitor North Korea's nuclear facilities, which can yield weapons-grade plutonium if restarted.

North Korea vowed earlier this week to restart its nuclear program and quit six-nation disarmament talks because the UN Security Council criticized its April 5 rocket launch as a violation of resolutions barring it from ballistic missile-related activity.
Pulling out of the nuke agreement because of a mere criticism at an irrelevant forum is not a reason good enough for North Korea to start its nuke weapons program. Its really frivolous.
Wonder what it wants to bargain for now. There is hardly any credibility of that regime, so wonder for how long the US, South Korea and Japan keep giving into this regimes demands.
There will be talks and maybe the North will stop its nuke program. But there is no guarantee if the North will once again pull out of it if someone in the US admin criticized the Dear Leader's pants!!

This is an excuse for NKorean regime, to start its N-Reactor, also , I think that credibility of the regime gone to new low,this came as a big blow for the USA's reputation as a failure of its foreign policy in East Asia., Mr. Obama's foreign policy working in East Asia, is now under question, NKorea, is just making the whole N-Talks as 'Hostage'. The more heat will , I think will be felt by Japan.
