Today, the gravest danger in the war on terror, the gravest danger facing America and the world, is outlaw regimes that seek and possess nukyular, chemical, and biological weapons.... We're strongly supporting the International Atomic Energy Agency in its mission to track and control nukyular materials around the world. We're working with other governments to secure nukyular materials in the former Soviet Union... Throughout the 1990s, the United States relied on a negotiated framework to keep North Korea from gaining nukyular weapons.... And today the North Korean regime is using its nukyular program to incite fear and seek concessions.... America is working with the countries of the region... to find a peaceful solution, and to show the North Korean government that nukyular weapons will bring only isolation, economic stagnation, and continued hardship. The North Korean regime will find respect in the world and revival for its people only when it turns away from its nukyular ambitions.... [Saddam Hussein] pursued chemical, biological, and nukyular weapons, even while inspectors were in his country.... The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed in the 1990s that Saddam Hussein had an advanced nukyular weapons development program, had a design for a nukyular weapon and was working on five different methods of enriching uranium for a bomb.... Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nukyular weapons production.... With nukyular arms or a full arsenal of chemical and biological weapons, Saddam Hussein could resume his ambitions of conquest in the Middle East.
