Playing dangerous games on their back porch, instead of the beach, hoping to intimidate the neighbors on the other side of the county.

China's rusty pocket knife.

...so are South Koreans going to start liking us?

No?

Then let the North have them...

One kilometer below the Earth’s surface?

It’s a miracle the North Koreans have the technology to make a hole that deep.

I wonder how many slave laborers died digging it?

I bet the WH, in its outrage is deeply disturbed.

"U.S. President Barack Obama labeled the test a "highly provocative act"

Oohhh. I'm sure this struck fear and trembling into the hearts of the NORKs. Next Obama will threaten to hold his breath and turn blue if the NORKs don't do his bidding.

The buzz is that this test differs from the 2 previous attempts in that this one is an enriched uranium device rather than a plutonium-based implosion device.

The Uranium device is much simpler, and is almost impossible to screw up. It also uses expensive bomb grade uranium, which requires centrifuges spinning for years to accomplish and provide a rather low yield. Plutonium is a byproduct of a fast breeder reactor, and is easily separated, MUCH cheaper to acquire and has a much more significant yield and can be enhanced to improve the yield.

That said, This device would not be prolific due to the enrichment process.

This test was to prove to the world that they are significant. Another failure would have been disastrous for the leaders of this Prison Camp masquerading as a country.
