There was no nuclear detonation. Proven to be false. Massive explosion, no radioactive signature.
The CTBTO’s radionuclide network has made a significant detection of radioactive noble gases that could be attributed to the nuclear test announced by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 12 February 2013.
The detection was made at the radionuclide station in Takasaki, Japan, located at around 1,000 kilometres, or 620 miles, from the DPRK test site. Lower levels were picked up at another station in Ussuriysk, Russia. Two radioactive isotopes of the noble gas xenon were identified, xenon-131m and xenon-133, which provide reliable information on the nuclear nature of the source.
The ratio of the detected xenon isotopes is consistent with a nuclear fission event occurring more than 50 days before the detection (nuclear fission can occur in both nuclear explosions and nuclear energy production). This coincides very well with announced nuclear test by the DPRK that occurred on 12 February 2013, 55 days before the measurement.
CTBTO DETECTS RADIOACTIVITY CONSISTENT WITH 12 FEBRUARY ANNOUNCED NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR TEST
They don't have a bomb because they haven't used it.
America has NOTHING to fear from North Korea. Going back to the Kim-il Sung, they rattle the sabre, and get a basket of goodies from America. Reagan, Bush I, Clinton and Bush W. all played along.
Any worry about North Korea is a distraction. Don't be distracted. There is nothing to worry about from N. Korea. Nothing. I guarantee it. Take it to the bank, bet what you want, I will play.
