N Korea Conducts Successful Nuke Test

From those champions of nuclear proliferation at Reuters:

North Korea conducts nuclear test

By Jonathan Thatcher

SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea said it successfully conducted a nuclear test on Monday, a move certain to further isolate the impoverished state which argues it has no choice but to build an atomic arsenal to protect itself in a hostile world.

"(North Korea) successfully conducted one more underground nuclear test on May 25 as part of the measures to bolster up its nuclear deterrent for self-defense in every way," the North’s official KCNA news agency said.

It added that the underground test "was safely conducted on a new higher level in terms of its explosive power and technology of its control."

The news knocked South Korean financial markets with the main share index falling 4 percent at one stage on fears the test will raise tension in a region which accounts for one sixth of the global economy…

Of course if only we had disarmed like Mrs. Clinton has suggested, none of this would have happened.

Now it’s only a question of how soon they sell a copy to the Iranians.

    I’m less concerned with NK trying to sell copies of the plans than just selling the bombs directly to the crazy persians and arabs. At least with the plans we have time before they get enought material that is pure enough, hopefully.

    Oh great, more sweet peace talk from Obama.

    Israel is saying the missle Iran just shot off has chinese technology and that Paksistan may have aided Iran. Iran is bragging they can direct it to where they want to after lift off. So, where the heck is it. I realise Obama wants to cut out our satelite and defensive missle weapons, does this mean, America has no idea where it is still.
    And then there’s traitor Collin Powell, how can a former Republican war general vote for a such an incompetent man to defend this country. He should keep his mouth shut when it comes to telling Republicans what to do, since he shouldn’t consider himself one voting for the most liberal President in U.S. history. They should start the Socialist party.

    Colin Powell never struck me as a true conservative in his political views. It would be interesting to get another perspective on this from someone like retired general Norman Schwartzkopf. What a telling photo you’ve posted S.G. Lil’ ‘shoe lifts’ Kim Jong smiling like an ass and sharing a toast with Madeline Half-Bright. I can only think of an old Klingon proverb that a Trekkie once told me: ‘Drink not with thine enemy.’ But hey, she was nothing but a Clinton Cronie back then. She probably didn’t think of Lil’ Kim as the enemy.

    Obamy has wet dreams about Lil Kim. Imagine the power that man has over his supplicants.

    And now, Lil Kim can blackmail the world and punish his enemies better than ever.

    Once the Lilliputans who tie our Dear Leader down are neutralized, he too will be able to enjoy that kind of power and get the revenge he craves.

    Man……..that is one U-G-L-Y out of shape little boy with those evil looking yellow aliens!

  6. jrmcdonald says:

    The unseen hand doing this is China.

    • proreason says:

      jr: I think you are right.

      Even the wee despot isn’t nutty enough to risk being obliterated.

      North Korea is China’s way of of gigging the west.

      That’s why the immediate threat is minimal. Of course, the long-term threat is major, but China has probably already surpassed The United Fringe Lunatics of America anyway.

    From the linked Al-Reuters article;

    U.S. President Barack Obama said Pyongyang’s bid to develop nuclear weapons was a threat to international peace and security and the international community would need to respond.

    The Moron in Chief is deluding himself if he thinks this is still a “bid to develop” nuclear weapons by the NorKors. There is no doubt in my mind that Lil’ Kim’s minions have moved past the development stage to the we have them stage now. Either that or the kim-chee crowd are apparently well skilled at faking magnitude 4 plus earthquakes in their northeast hinterlands. From the USGS site;


    Sadly, TCO will simply send them another sternly worded letter and expecting of course, the NorKors to play nice in the sandbox. Denial is a very dangerous trap.

  8. canary says:

    And to think Obama said Carter was weak for focusing on human right issues,
    instead of defense. Obama is no different. Both sharing that one world order,
    b.s. Carter a peanut farmer, Obama a nut case.
