SOUTH KOREA'S YONHAP NEWS AGENCY REPORTS NORTH KOREA HAS CONDUCTED NUCLEAR WEAPONS TEST


N. Korea claims success in nuclear test

SEOUL, Oct. 9 (Yonhap) -- North Korea announced Monday that it successfully conducted an underground nuclear test.

In a report by the North's official Korean Central News Agency, the communist regime said the test earlier Monday was carried out safely and successfully.

"The nuclear test was conducted by 100 percent of our wisdom and technology," it said.

There was no danger including leaks of radioactivity, it added.

South Korea's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said the country's state intelligence agency detected a 3.58 magnitude seismic tremor in the North's remote area of North Hamgyeong Province at around 10 a.m.

"The intelligence was immediately reported to President Roh Moo-hyun," Roh's spokesman Yoon Tae-young said. "Related countries are in consulation on the issue."
Roh immediately called an emergency meeting of related ministers to discuss countermeasures.

And now reported to be in the 5 - 15 Megaton range.

Or equal to the device dropped on Hiroshima.

Hmmmm.....on thing to keep in mind would be that Kim Jong Il ( or however you spell that ) is a liar.

He's the same guy who said that he got 16 Holes in one in 18 holes of golf....lol

I would be more inclined to believe the Geological people. :-)

They would be a more reliable source of info, but Il HAS kept a lot of his promises:

1. He promised to develop short to medium range missles
2. He promised to test them
3. He promised to enrich uranium
4. He promised to develop a nuclear device

He has delivered on his promises.

Believe him? Yes. Trust him?

Yikes!

WASHINGTON — Any North Korean attack on South Korea or Japan will be considered an attack on the United States, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton warned Monday.

Bolton's declaration to the Security Council, reported to the Associated Press by U.N. diplomats speaking on condition of anonymity because the meeting was closed, followed a stern statement from President Bush in response to North Korea's claim that it had successfully detonated its first nuclear weapon.

Bush called Pyongyang's nuclear test "unacceptable" and 'provocative," and warned Kim Jong-Il's regime that the U.S. would honor its commitments to protect its Asian allies

"The United States will meet the full range of our deterrent and security commitments," Bush said during a brief White House appearance.

The president said North Korea was "one of the world's leading proliferators" of weapons technology, including transfers toIran and Syria.

President Bush called the transfer of nuclear weapons or material would constitute "a grave threat to the United States, and we hold North Korea fully accountable for the consequences of such actions."

Bush also charged that North Korea had defied the international community, "and the international community will respond," a reference to Monday morning's meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

"No one defended [the test], no one even came close to defending it," Bolton told reporters during a brief break in the talks. "I was very impressed by the unanimity of the council ... on the need for a strong and swift answer to what everyone agreed amounted to a threat to international peace and security."

The thing to note is that it is not the absolute magnitude of the seismic event that makes it a probable nuclear test. Underground nuclear explosions have a very distinct seismic profile. Well before the pot-bellied little punk announced the test we had designated it as an underground test.

Who is lying?


Those who are lying are the self-same terrorists who brought you the sleight of hand which was 9/11 (watch while in a state of hypnosis the fire and smoke at the upper floors, as the bomb blasts are going off in the basement of WTC 2 [North Tower]), who release the Foley scandal and the blowback from Democrats, just in time to make you lean toward the Democrats on November 7th (and re-inforce your belief in the system), and who now bring you the fake Korean nuclear test. The sham which is American "democracy" is a concatenation of representatives not of you and me, but of and for corporations and their lucrative bribes. Don't delude yourself that the rivalry between the two faces of the same corrupt coin are working for you. In recesses you will never see, they co-operate fully to ensure their corruption-conveyor stays well-greased.

Chalk up the fake nuclear test to the Republican/Democrat hysteria generator, who, no matter which party controls one or two out of three branches of government come November 8th, will thrive on your terror and the Southeast Asian nuclear arms race (sales) engendered, which you will support. You're being played.

Go back to sleep, America. Everything is good.
