North Korea claims it was a successful test of a Hydrogen Bomb.

Early word is that it was a hydrogen bomb, that's even scarier than what I first thought. This is getting quite frightening. Will get a source as soon as I can.


Too small. It could have been an attempt at one where only the primary went off.

If you stretch your definitions of 'is' hard enough, you could say it was a successful test (the first primary they ever managed) and that it was a thermonuclear weapon. As long as you don't claim the secondary had any yield.

I don't quite see it as successful either, but that's what they're claiming anyways.

I am sure it was another test Nuclear or not.
I just do not understand why we think Iran will stop developing a nuclear bomb when we let NK continue. Although I think Iran is more interested in befriending the countries that have the better nuclear capabilities anyway.

It only took them 60 years of failed tests, they were bound to get one right eventually...

Oh, Iran can probably do it in one.

They're using uranium and a known-good AQ Khan design. Easy peasy. All they have to do is build it by the numbers.

Seriously? NK couldn't throw a tennis ball in the water if they were standing in the middle of a lake!

If people want to be worried about something, they should be worried about these CLOWNS nuking themselves (by accident) and having the fallout dift over other countries.

You're letting the media manipulate you...AGAIN!!

Amazing we have politicians who want war with Iran over a nuke they don't have, yet these asshats can continue to test nukes and ballistic missiles. If only China were a bigger supporter of Iran they too could be testing out their own nukes.

So if it's 5.3 on the richter scale, how many kilo/megatons y'all think this h bomb is?

Think of how many North Korean mouths could've been fed using the money that went into the development and assembly of that nuke. Sometimes this world doesn't make too much sense to me.


Could say the same thing about the US and the Veterans affairs

But, nahh, I wont

Meh, big deal.
They've had nukes for a while now and haven't dropped one on Seoul.



The older bombs were low-yield fission bombs (think Hiroshima). Hydrogen fissile weapons are magnitudes more devastating..

According to
simple.m.wikipedia.org...

This could be between 32-150 kilotons!

Much more powerful than the duds north Korea donated before

What century is this? This is insane.

Also, how could millions of dollars spent on U.S. intelligence fail to catch a whiff of this?

In my opinion,

Nothing will happen.

The US is in a very restrained situaution.

What realistically CAN happen? Nothing.

Because: Russia, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, ISIS, India, 2016 election, strapped defense budget, Obama's legacy.

Kim knows this.

As already mentioned in the thread, they had been monitoring activities at the site.

It wouldn't really be a stretch to assume they knew a test was due soon too.

But maybe not, as you can't hide a nuclear test....China, Japan and many others would have known instantly that something happened there.

I think it is time the world quits playing patty cake with Kimmy.

Children shouldnt play with nukes, and Kim needs a spanking.
