UPDATE:

North Koreans are preparing for a possible undeground nuclear test, reportedly at P'yunggyeyok in the northeast of the country not very far from the missile launch facility of Taepodong 2 last month (and other launch complexs for nodong and scud missiles), Musudanri. This according to the daily Korean newspaper Joongang Ilbo, which Japanese TV NNN Network highlights in this brief report. You can see the brief streaming report, including a map showing the location of this suspected test in northeast North Korea, in the clip. It is 300K and viewable via Windows Media Player.

Seems like breaking if true.

Not good.

I'm not surprised. My only question is will it have sufficient containment?

I should add that the footage in this video is primarily of the nuclear facilities at Yongbyon, including removing fuel rods, filmed some time ago. Nevertheless the value of the video is the location noted on the DPRK map and the comments noting the suspected preparations for a nuke test at the P'yunggyeyok facility area as we speak (per Joongangilbo News, South Korea).

It might have its bright side. Like a festering boil that finally bursts through: the beginning of the end of this outlaw regime.

They could blast radiation all over the freaking place, yes.

They have already had horrible radiation deaths in the vicinity of the closed areas of Yangbyon and Kumchangri over the years. Little chernobyl's here and there, with tecnicians suffering horrible slow deaths because of their lack of standards nor international supervision by IAEA. (I'm just referring to the reprocessing here).

So if NK does explode a nuke, how long before Iran says that they bought one from NK and they got it pointed at Israel/Baghdad and will set it off if we don't leave the region.

North Korea preparing to attack the United States or Japan with nuclear technology (or at least create nuclear blackmail which is the dimension we are moving into) shall not take priority over that, for sure.

I would suspect we have an approximate 30 day timeline. Some time within that time period is possible, yes. Nobody can guess the exact day. Kim Jong il could choose any day for various reasons. I have no evidence, I just think he would enjoy choosing September 11th fifth anniversary just to be (sorry to borrow a lib word here) "mean spirited."

I only theorize that because the man is a very clever yet very crazy dangerous nutbag case.

The mass media particularly in the USA, by and large, are liberals who hate themselves and do not even value their own freedom and survival, and think everyone else out there is like them and wants to go out like sick, suicidal lemmings. Therefore, even in view of these great geopolitical threats, they will focus--yeah, obsess, on the unimportant. If dumbed down Joe Sixpack drinks it up, asks for more and does not demand higher levels of journalism, it will be a shame.

As for me, the death of a cutsie 6 year old little beauty queen girl in Colorado 10 years ago, as sad as that is, has absolutely NO BEARING ON MY LIFE--and millions of others, including you and yours--compared to a full scale nuclear war prompted by North Korean agression in Northeast Asia at this time.

Thanks- that seems reasonable..the 9/11 or 22 Aug dates - considering he did the first round on the 4th of July..

We have some serious psychos running things in Iran, N Korea, Venezuela and even Lebanon...

This is a textbook case of state terrorism, which means, to exact maximum effect. To do so, he has done so, and will in fact do so in the future--i.e. pick a significant date just to insult us further.

A nuclear bomb used in a test and a nuclear weapon deliverable via strategic missile are two totally different things.

I agree, however just for Iran to boast they have one would be enough to get things heated up real quick. I am a firm believer that things are gonna come to a head before the next presidential election.

We did go to war after a certain amount of UN resolutions. Of course, Iraq did not have nukes and developmental ICBM capabilities--that may be the big difference in terms of delaying or forestalling our actions on this one.

Kim Jong il is hoping for Hilary Clinton (or another appeasement democrat) to be elected. In that sense, he is trying to stick things out for another two and a half years.

I believe, in the usual sense of belief as a state of knowledge somewhat short of proven reality, that nothing will be done unless N Kor or Iran detonates one or more of their nukes outside their own territory.

This would be the perfect time to have a B2 drop one of those B61 Nuclear Bunker Busters right onto the test sight. Since the plane doesn't appear on radar, and the radiation prohibits sorting the bits and pieces for evidence of the bomb, it would just look like the NK bungled another test. After the missile that couldn't test on July 4th who would question an accident. No down side for the US and we take out most of their nuke scientists.

Maybe. But I hope that our response this time is a something a bit stronger than last month's "what N.Korea is doing is unacceptable." Right now our enemies in Iran and North Korea are saying and doing openly the very things that we are warning them not to say and do. They are testing our resolve. So far, we are flunking. Yes, it's still early.

My only hope is that they do it in October if, in fact, they do it. MSM will be put in a real quandary about how to cover it. Will it help the Republicans? dimmorats, or hurt ol Neddie boy? My guess is that they will try to minimize it and what coverage it gets will be to blame the president and praise BJ that he did not allow it to happen. Somebody called his(BJ's) foreign policy Bugs Bunny, all carrot and no stick.

invariably, whenever it were to take place, by and large the CBSNBCABCCNN response would be 'it's all Bush's fault'. former Clinton admin. people would be the most sought after 'commentators' on the crisis...and of course they would do everything to link in how wonderful the world was before 2001 and Bush.

Japanese TV has been covering this " cutsie " story fairly heavily the past few days . You'd think it had happened here ...

AUSTRALIA last night warned that any move by North Korea to test a nuclear bomb would be extremely dangerous and provocative and would pose a serious threat to regional stability. …An Australian government official last night described the US media reports as “extremely concerning”. “A nuclear test would be an extremely dangerous and provocative step and a direct threat to regional security and stability,’ the official told The Weekend Australian. “Australia would support very strong action by the international community in response to any tests.”
