If threads about this had to be pulled then, by all means pull this one, too. I just expected the AB crowd would be spitting feathers at this situation.

I don't think there have been any threads about this - but now you've posted one no doubt there will be some interest.
Why would anybody be spitting feathers at the situation ?.....his day will come, maybe sooner than he or others are expecting !

A good day for tumbleweed, naomi.

........((((@......

probably because it doesn't pay to believe a word that comes out of North Korea. (Which is not to say it isn't true, but I'd prefer to see independent verification.)
Hypognosis, tumbleweed abounds lately. ;o)

Thanks Baz. Careful use of pronouns, I note. Should keep their legion of internet-scourers at bay. Or...?



For once I am with jno.
Since when has anyone here given a damn about North Korea. They aren't Moslem and they aren't sending their immigrants to our pure and local country.

I'd be surprised if the North Koreans have developed a hydrogen bomb, but it certainly keeps us on our toes

Hi jno

already, one expert has deduced that because their last, conventional, device triggered a 5.1 quake that what may have happened is that just the trigger device went off but it failed to generate enough compression to initiate the fusion half.

Anyway, whoever sold them the knobbled blueprints probably won't last long.

I once read the Wiki on 50s tests and there were some "conventional" tests *after* the first fusion successes. Maybe these are our own duds, cunningly disguised?
You always need to bear in mind that a lot of these announcements by dictators are largely for the benefit of their own people. No doubt many members of the PDRK are walking tall (or as tall as they reasonably can) in the knowledge that the supreme/dear etc leader has built a big bomb.
They may feel less hungry also as a result of their happiness

By the way, I am puzzled by the photo of the mushroom cloud in the DM article. It is supposed to be a screen-grab from NK TV, of the claimed test but it has to be a library image as it looks like it is on a coast with some islands in the background. The test site is supposed to be in the mountains.

Anyone know anything about the prevailing winds? Will Japan or China be in line to have the fallout land on them?

Worse still, the sea. Fukushima contamination reached the States, allegedly.

Do you think, if we posted some laxatives to their news anchor, it would progress any further than the customs office?

Even if there were evidence of such a bomb I'm unsure what folk are supposed to suggest. Once a genie is out of the bottle it can't be put back. Sooner of later the unstable leaders will pursue getting hold of the power. Unless one is expecting the UN to sanction an invasion :-)
Perhaps the lunatic has mentioned it to see the world reaction, just like the ruskies when they "accidentally" fly into/close to our airspace...to see how we react etc
Question Author
Quite so, Baz.

My main worry is that the existing nuclear powers understand their use as a deterrent*. I'm not sure that NKs share that outlook or whether they would unilaterally hit out at their (perceived) imperialist threat (ie "the West") and, if they did, then what? Each attempt, by us, to retaliate becomes the justification for the next one off their production line. It would be like the Israel/Palestine situation.

But if we fail to retaliate, we're doomed to be pushed around by their demands forever.

* against land invasion. Only two countries can do this without a long - and conspicuous - sea voyage. Where's the threat, against them?

Apologies regarding the incorrectness claim.

I assumed that the Nk abbreviation was referring to the Nuclear situation, I now see it was meant to be North Korea.

@anotheoldgit

Give or take misreading the NK abbreviation (which got mangled by the AB anti-shouting adjuster mechanism) you actually answered what I asked, so BA awarded to you.

Discussion of the fallout - both political and literal - of the test is still welcome but is adding width, rather than addressing the lack of interest amongst us. Maybe we have more sangue froid than I give people credit for?
