All the world is talking about the announced nuclear test that North Korea said they conducted at 10:36 AM in an old mine.  Seismologists measured it at about 3.6 which would measure around 500 tons of TNT… less than 1/30th of that blast at Hiroshima. 

There is actually nothing to indicate it really was a nuclear test.  Was it something designed to just ruffle the feathers of the U.S and North Korea’s closest friends such as China, for  instance?  China is not happy about it at all, nor the rest of the world.  I’m no expert on nuclear explosions, but it seems to me that a true nuclear explosion would register much higher than 3.6.

Whether it was or was not… it was proof that once Korea does have nuclear capability, the world isn’t safe from this Stalinist regime.  They have proven they won’t listen to reason nor heed any censuring from the U.N. Security Counsel, from Beijing or from the power nations like the U.S.  The real fear is that NK has sold extreme technology to the top bidder and having nuclear capibility, there is no question that, too, will be sold to the highest bidder, and it is likely that the highest bidder would be terrorists.  It’s a scary world we live in.
