Well... considering that the epicentre of the "quake" is in the mountains about a mile or so north-ish from a "Nuclear Test Facility" on the aptly named "Nuclear Test Road", I'd say the chances are pretty solid that it was a test blast...

Check it in Google Maps... click the link below and then zoom in a bit...

And tomorrow's news from the crater formerly called North Korea will be?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

As much as I find humour in North Korea's petty threats, I found that recent YouTube video that was created by the NK gov't to be rather unnerving. I do not fear them launching a missile towards the United States as I fear them launching a missile on one of their allies...

What. A Korean false flag to sucker the Russians and the Chinese into action.  It would be way to easy to find out were the nuke came from.  Each nuke has what one could call a fingerprint.

Heres some geological-kiloton comparison for those number crunchers. This being from there 2006 test.


Quote

An early report by the Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (South Korea) said the blast was equivalent to an earthquake registering 3.58 on the Richter scale,[21] which corresponds to the explosion of 100 tons of TNT. This was later revised to at least 800 tons,[22] corresponding to a blast wave of 4.2. The U.S. Geological Survey also estimates the blast wave at 4.2.[23] (Note that 4.2 is considerably more powerful than 3.58 because the Richter scale is a logarithmic scale.)
According to Jane's Defence Weekly, "initial and unconfirmed South Korean reports indicate that the test was a fission device with a yield of 0.55 kT ... The figure of 0.55 kT, however, seems too low given the 4.2 register on the Richter scale. This could suggest – depending upon the geological make-up of the test site – a yield of 2–12 kT."[24]

7 Kilotons is the updated (3am DST ) advisory.  How exactly does one create a "false flag" within a test facility and have the NK government admit to the test?  The DPRK is becoming a real pain in the back side and may have to be dealt with. Either fought or bought off.  They put a "satellite" into space.  That means they have the capacity to throw a certain amount of weight to most any spot on earth once they figure out how to have it re enter properly - at least I THINK that's how it works.  They stressed in this announcement that the device was "miniturized and lighter" obviously implying a threat against someone with a ballistic missile delivery.  That, coupled with the lovely video of New York destroyed is a BIT of a provocation, no?  Or is that a false flag also?

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

A large step from up and down tech NK is currently using. They have the capability of firing a medium range scud at this point. Not to say thats not extremely dangerous there neighbors. But America not so much. We would know long before it entered rentry stage wear it was headed and have many systems in place to counter such a threat. SK..not so much. There the victims in this chessgame.

Again the West Coast would be the easier target for them to reach which is our larger portion of the missile defense system run by USA. Most of the European stuff is run by European command or by US bases in Europe. Very unlikely anything could make it through sub orbital or orbital. Just think of the Navy resources available to counter as well the systematic annihilation NK would get if such an attempt were made anywhere on the globe and doubt many sadfaces would appear if such were to happen even from China. South Korea remains the most threatened as well as Japan from a medium ranged scud nuke at this point IMO. And that might have become a test or 2 away from reality. We put Big Boy and Little Boy into operation after only a couple tries to weaponize it so theres a good chance they may have successfully just weaponized there nukes. But at 54KT thats a big one for sure. Hiroshima was 16KT. I would expect a pretty harsh reaction from the world community and this is far from anything Iran is doing.

edit my math is wrong they are still under Hiroshima in KT level being estimated at 2-12KT for real not..Saw 0.55 and ran with it. My bad

"Trinity" test on 16 July 1945, was the first-ever test of a nuclear weapon (yield of around 20 kt)

The hell? They said they were going nuke the US. Once again you tease us Best Korea!


I think the biggest take away on this test is how p***ed off China seems to be. I mean I'm sure they've taken the Norks to task privately several times but this time they publically condemned the North and openly stated they brought in their ambassador to give them hell. Seems like China is getting tired of North Korea's crap. Wonder if they might took to take more direct action.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

"IF" I read correctly on the news reports, NK wants to forcibly unify SK under an NK umbrella to a single Korean country.

Including the destruction of SK and American forces in that region resisting such measures.

Who know's with those whacked-out, opium smoking leaders of NK.

They seem to change their public info like a tornado from one day to the next.

Kid's around the world... don't use opium.

That is part of the Best Korea rhetoric just after we will destroy America with our Nuclear bombs. So yeah Id say the Korean War is heating up again. Why weve let it develop into the nuclear age I have no clue.

Millions of brainwashed and starving people no one wants to deal with. And China has always protected the North from any real threats or interference, though they might be having second thoughts these days. So unless we wanted to throw down with China there's not much we could do.
