    North Korea carries out biggest nuclear test

    North Korea has carried out its third, most powerful nuclear test despite UN warnings, and said "even stronger" action might follow.

    It described the test as a "self-defensive measure" necessitated by the "continued hostility" of the US.

    Its main ally, China, criticised the test, which was condemned worldwide.

    Nuclear test monitors in Vienna say the underground explosion had double the force of the 2009 test, despite apparently involving a smaller device.

    If, as North Korea reports, a smaller device was tested successfully, analysts say this could take Pyongyang closer to building a warhead small enough to arm a missile.

    The UN Security Council will meet at 14:00 GMT to discuss the test and its ramifications, diplomats say.

    Early indications are it was a bigger yield than the '06 fizzle, and the '09 test (both Pu implosion weapons)- maybe in the 15kt range based on reported seismic info. PRNK has been boasting about its enrichment centrifuges (showed them off to a foreign physicist in '10)- and gun type HEU are smaller and lighter (nowhere near small enough for a missile warhead of appreciable size- they'd need a boosted weapon for that). Be interesting to see what the Japanese and US air sampling shows.

    It looks like a UN force needs to move in and clean up the place. We can't let them drop a nuke before we do something. JMO

    This whole thing is very, very scary. Just very scary.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    They are now threatening to blow us up (although our forces state they lack the capabilities to fire a long range nuke).

    Wonder how old Dennis Rodman, Kim Jong Un's best buddy feels about that? I;m surprised no one here talked about Rodman's ridiculous spectacle going over there and cozying up to that evil dictator.

    They will have the capability probably within the next few years. I actually agree with the Bush doctrine on this one. Although it could be argued that their attack on a South Korean island years ago should be enough. Also, we are technically still at war with them anyway. So going in wouldn't require much effort. JMO

    Dennis Rodman is a real nutjob. After finding out about Argo though it might be a CIA ploy.

    Well, our involvement in the UN sanctions shows we do but right now, North Korea does not have the capabilities of firing such a missile. So it is unlikely that the president is that worried. But, like Steely said, they will have that capability in a few years and they are completely nuts. IMO, they WILL use nukes against another country if they have them. We should be very worried about what they will eventually be able to do.

    It reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode with the evil little boy who could do things with his mind so they call had to placate Billy. These dictators act like that - little, tantruming children with power they do not comprehend.

    I would bet money that all this nonsence with Dennis Rodman going over there and being able to get right in to his high securitty places was not just some wild adventure by rodman i bet he was weather it was actually himself or a guard maybe but he was doing work for obama himself i guarantee it...

    Oh, please. If we go to war with South Korea, particularly a nuclear war, it won't be a war of numbers.

    You may be right, but we used to say the same thing about the Russians during the Cold War. As it turned out, they were never so crazy as to annihilate themselves by starting a nuclear war.

    Actions speak louder than words: regardless of what Bush may have said, he chose to ignore North Korea and Iran, and invade Iraq instead, despite considerable evidence that Hussein had no nuclear capability whatsoever.

    Let's don't rewrite history to give him credit. His policy of refusing to speak with North Korea was obviously not a successful deterrent.
