Russia Will Take 'Adequate Measures' If Space Militarized: Ivanov  - Science Daily  Left:  Ivanov.   Russia will take "adequate responsive measures" to a move by any country to put weapons in space, Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said here Thursday, quoted by Russian news agencies. "Should any state make plans to or begin to deploy weapons in space, we will without a doubt take adequate responsive measures" in response, Ivanov said, quoted by the news agencies. His comments came two weeks after the US daily The New York Times reported that the US Air Force was seeking a national security directive from President George W. Bush that could lead to fielding offensive and defensive space weapons. The White House denied the report. "Russia's position on this issue has not changed for decades: we categorically oppose the militarization of space," he said.   
White House Defends Cheney After 'Bloodthirsty Beast' Attack By NKorea - Science Daily  The White House on Thursday defended outspoken personal criticism of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il by Vice President Dick Cheney that may have dashed any hopes of bringing Pyongyang back to six-party nuclear talks. Cheney had called Kim an "irresponsible" leader who did not care for his people and ran a police state, drawing a strong rebuke Thursday from Pyongyang, which slammed the US vice president as a "blood-thirsty beast." "We are going to call it the way it is," White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters as he backed Cheney's verbal broadside made in an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live" program on Monday. Charles Pritchard, the special envoy for talks with North Korea during president Bill Clinton's second term in office, said Cheney's volley was "deliberate".   

North Korea Says US Stealth Bomber Move Signals Nuclear War - Science Daily  Left:  "This proves that the US scheme of preemptive nuclear attack is systematically going over from violent words to operational plan and from the plan to the stage of military action," the committee said.  North Korea on Thursday said the deployment of 15 US F-117 Stealth bombers to South Korea was part of preparations for a preemptive nuclear strike on the country. "This proves that the US scheme of preemptive nuclear attack is systematically going over from violent words to operational plan and from the plan to the stage of military action," the committee said.
