I highly doubt that it was a thermonuclear device the North Koreans had just set off because the so-called H-bomb is on several orders of magnitude stronger than a normal fission bomb, and would have been easily detected and identified as such from outside sources.

The DPRK has a well established history of feeding their own people bullspit news, just as with their glorious orbiting satellite they launched years prior; they told their people the launch was a success, with everyone else detecting their rocket corkscrewing into the Pacific.

But even if it wasn't a thermonuclear test, with each detonation they are clearly learning more and more...

I do not believe it was a hydrogen bomb, but another test of a nuke to refine and perfect their weapons design and output.

This is an interesting dance that is always being done. So while the world is looking at North Korea, we should not ignore their ally and good friend, Iran, as they are maneuvering forces and things are heating up in the Middle East. It seems as though when one of them spouts off, the world looks, and the other makes a fast play.

But beyond that, there is one thing that stops all movements against North Korea, and that is China. The North Korean's know this and work to keep on the good side of China. If China says no, don't do that, China has the best chance of changing the direction or even stopping North Korea from doing anything. And thus it is a difficult dance that the world has to play.

The question that should be on everyone's mind is what is China going to do? Right now they are condemning the test, and realize the danger. China may have a few aces up its sleeve, and I would not be surprised if they decide on revealing one to North Korea and at the same time, start to cause pressure on the Military and those that keep the lill dictator in power.

Funny, you & others are SO close to seeing what is happening.

It's NO coincidence that all of these "events" are occurring - - United States is being pulled apart akin to being "quartered" on the international stage.

Sooner or later, the juggling act is gonna come crashing down & HARD!

Actually if you look at history, from the end of World War II all of the way to present, it is not too hard to put forth such.

China is not wanting North Korea to destabilized, as they don't want the influx of refugee's. Nor are they wanting the Korean conflict to go hot, as it means that they will get drawn back into a situation that puts them in a difficult position. They are getting irritated with Lil Kim's actions, and that of North Korea. And they are the ones that have been supplying North Korea fully and completely.

Now if you look at all of the prior initial Hydrogen bombs, the amount of damage was astounding. Mike destroyed and vaporized an island, and the Tsar Bomba creaked a shockwave that broke windows for over 500 miles away from the detonation point. Hence why many are saying it was not a hydrogen bomb but another nuke test.

I get the feeling that if Kimmy and Co. did manage to sucessfully acheive a full 2 stage reaction, they would somehow manage to short bus the test and the majority of DPRK would be floating over Asia in a radioactive dust cloud
