North Korea will continue to be a problem as long as China believes they are benefiting from it.

Yeah? Too bad California has the highest GDP in the nation by nearly 40% and the repercussions would cripple the country and internet worldwide. But woohoo those nasty liberals are gone!
Enjoy the popcorn as you watch your countrymen die of radiation burns. Pretty sadistic but hey jmo.

The arguments for and against against Kim having nukes has been going on here for a while now, but my biggest worry it that he's just crazy enough to actually use them.

So, are we thinking this is a nuclear test, US strike or earthquake?

It [south korea] said it believed the quake was natural because the specific soundwaves generated by artificial earthquakes were not detected, Reuters news agency reports.
guys please read this article.
Jumping to random conclusions is fun I guess, but the natural earthquake is at a depth of 5km and doesnt have the signature nuke-quake waves...
and for a heads up this quake at 3.4 magnitude is almost 800 times weaker than the H bomb test NK did that registered as a 6.3 magnitude artificial quake.
USGS putting this quake at 5km sort of seals the deal really.. Think about it. The deepest mines in the world go a little over 4km.
