N. Korea's Announcement, "The third underground nuclear test was a success"

(Seoul, Yonhap News) Noh Jae-hyun

N. Korea's (state news agency) KCNA reported that it successfully conducted the third underground nuclear test.

It reported, "Our defense science sector successfully conducted the third underground nuclear test on Feb. 12 at the underground test site in the northern part of the country. Unlike previous tests, a smaller and lighter bomb with bigger yield was used. The test was done at the high level of safety and perfection. It was confirmed that the test did not have any negative impact on surrounding environment.

Funny how Kim Jong Un popped that off on the cusp of Obamas STOTU speech.

It was probably intentional. Picking a date was a political call. There were several choices for Kim. He apparently chose to stick it to Zero.

Can we be certain china did not give nk a suitcase?
Can we be certain nk does not have the missile technology to hit a U.S. city?
Can we be certain nk cannot mount a suitcase on a missile?
regrettably the answer is no to these questions

The political lineup:

immature ones: Kim Jong-eun(N. Korea,) Barak Obama(U.S.)

sort of OK : Abe(Japan,) Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye(S. Korea, current and incoming president)

Cunning and devious: Xi Jinping(China,) Vladimir Putin(Russia)

No muslims in the region so I would think it will be an apathetic response.

Another report from Yonhap News:

Tremors were felt for about a minute in Hunchun, Jilin Province, China, which is approximately 127 miles from the test site. No damage was reported, though.

North Korea says its nuclear test was its “first response” to U.S. threats and warns it will continue with unspecified “second and third measures of greater intensity” if the United States maintains its hostility.

A second nuke test?

The second one at the least, followed by another rocket(ICBM) test. Eventually they want to demonstrate that they have both the long-range rocket and a miniaturized nuke to be mounted on it. Ergo, a nuclear ICBM.

According to new report by Yonhap News, China urges other countries for calm response to NK test. The “calm response” has become a code phrase which essentially means that they will give it a pass and so should everybody else.

He’ll probably turn the club face in a little more.

Thanks for the info.

The earlier translation I heard was:

“Kim Jong-Un is so ronery. His Daddy was so ronery too!”

I stand corrected. Thanks again!

The last two are the only ones who know how to play ball, IMO. We should be cunning as well, or we risk losing it all.
