Actually I hope North Korea tests a nuclear weapon. With the new Japanese PM wanting a bigger and more capable military as well as closer ties with Washington and a revision of the constitution a nuclear test would be helpful in speeding that up (think what a stronger Japan means for the PACRIM area). With a questionable South Korean president who is facing strong opposition for his plans to distance SK from the US military, a nuclear test would be key in making that opposition much stronger. Countries who oppose the US on dealing with NK will also have their hand weakened substantially, there will be clear evidence of North Korea having nuclear capability and the will to use it. So, nuclear test? By all means.

Which is funny, because the terrorists do say Bush being president is a good thing because they think he is stupid and easily led on, i think they said in that one vid on CNN years ago..

Just like last time, if they launch it will probably be towards a Russian test range, or shot down by a Phalanx, or some prototype UCAV. My best guess.
