Would it? Would it not? is the question uppermost on the minds of major world powers.

The South Korean, Chinese and Russian government officials have kept up the heat to dissuade N Korea from conducting the N-test. The normally reticent UN has also bared its fangs and said that it was prepared to bite if N Korea persists.

The Japanese response was, however, cryptic. Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso said there was no telling when it might come and Japan did not sense that tension was mounting.”Unlike a rocket, we can’t see it, so there is nothing we can say.”

But like a rocket, it can cause immeasurable damage to generations. If the global voice is not unanimous now, the future of the peninsula can be seriously jeopardized.
