If the Asian markets have gone down in our unstable market, yes we will see a drop in our own markets. I would say -150 at least on the DJA.

If South Korea, and Japan make a big enough fuss yes..... it is likely some kind of military response may be in order..

You have to understand the situation of these two nations.. Japan and S Korea WILL NOT TOLORATE A NUCLEAR N KOREA!!! It just cannot be, it upsets the balance of power. With N Koreas army, S Korea and Japan of the American army, now N Korea has nukes, while America does to, Japan and S Korea do not.

Like I said above, if the administration stands by its own word yes.. we will have a war soon. If we do not go to war then it is almost set in stone we never went after WMDs in either Iraq, Afgahnistan nor are we interested in Iran having nukes. The administration is on damage control, anyone with half a brain can see the connection.

Here is the report from the Inchon seismographic station. Remember that Inchon is quite a way away from the acutal sight.

USGS detected 4.2 Magnitude seismic activity, well looks like the put options might actually pay off, reported on debka was that iran and syria are gearing up for a pre emptive strike against israel knowing that the US can not fight a war on 3 fronts, they want to attack before the us builds naval presence.

all this take with a pinch of salt as it does come from debka

Just 150? The DJIA hit record levels just recently; something like this could burst its bubble and bring it down a lot more. In other words, I think the average is inflated as it is. I think it will be hit hard in the morning, then may make a minor recovery around noon.

Over the wire from Beijing-

China opposes N Korean test.

Of course they do. Everyone does.
Doesn't mean they're going to do anything though...

Something should be done and needs to be done, but more than likely nothing will get done.
Unless/until NK actually uses one...


I'd put money on that.

Another failure by the bush administration. Add this to iraq, iran, illegal immigration and a multitude of other failures and you get the gist of what a disaster this guy has been to America.

I just heard them say on fox news that N Korea LAUNCHED a nuclear weapon. The anchor was clearly reading from a prompter so it didnt seem like a slip. I know they didnt but this just seems like more fear mongering from fox. Opinions?

Another point to spin-off into partisan politics. Go back a bit and notice that Clinton made some interesting deals with the North Koreans. They didn't turn out too well. Why don't we put a party into power that is actually different from the status quo?

Well, I am NO supporter of the Bush Administration, however the Korean government have to take a lot of responsibility. They are the ones who advocated the "Sunshine" policy. They have given aid etc to North Korea, they are the ones who also want the US Military to leave. I wonder if they will be so keen now?

It's not partisan if it's true. Actually I am a strong republican who has zero tolerance for ignorance and failure. This administration has done nothing but fail in EVERYTHING that they touch. This isn't politics, this is reality.

Im getting pretty un easy about all this hey.
Someone finally went to that next level.
This is going to show the US's true credentials here.
We trounced and invaded on the assumption of wmd's.

Imagine if Iraq had of tested a weapon.. we probably would of struck back in the same manner and then sent in the troops.

Stock markets are going to feel effected..
South korea is surely going to be very itchy and rightfully so.

But what exactly are we going to do ?
any military strike against korea is going to be met with some feirce retaliation..
I think Iran, Iraq, Syria, and south america are truley now playing chess..

They just moved there second LAST peice into checkmate.

The USA cannot face all of these threats..

Excellent point! Once again they are in a pickle of their own design and they need to be called on this utter policy failure.

Where does NK go from here?

If they now have the bomb and they know what the international reaction will be (to sanction the rest of whatever meager economy they have) then doesn't this put the proverbial "tiger in the corner"?

I can only assume that this is only the beginning of a major series of event that will involve NK attacking another country.

Any thoughts?

I don't know too much about earth quake stuff, but could this EQ felt in washington state have occured because of the nuke test? Maybe that's an ignorant question?

Earthquake felt across Western Washington

Absolutely. Great point. N.K. already believes it will be attacked. What does it have to lose in attempting to invade S.K.?

I have a funny feeling that US won't do anything about it apart from Raise the Double Standard. They're too hard pressed with Iraq and Afghanistan aren't they? That's how NK always seems to get away with stuff.

I predict 'noisy disapproval' at least for now...
