Isn't North Korea a little ironic?

This afternoon I read this story in the NY Times and it made me scratch my head. Here is the opening paragraph to the article...

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said Tuesday that it had stopped disabling its main nuclear complex and threatened to restore facilities there that the North had used to produce plutonium for nuclear weapons unless the United States removed it from a terrorist list.

So to me this begs the question, if North Korea badly wants its enemies to refrain from considering it a terrorist risk, wouldn't it behoove them not to threaten revamping their plutonium production plants? Maybe its just me, but North Korea, if you want us to remove you from the terrorism blacklist then its probably a good idea to forget about the plutonium and start producing AA batteries.
