Thanks to help from Pakistan and Iran, North Korea is now
another headache for the United States.

North Korea has carried out a successful nuclear weapons test.

It now has the capacity to nuke Los Angeles.

West has long suspected that Pakistan's scientists had
been secretly helping both Iran and North Korea in developing nuclear weapons.

North Korea has justified producing nukes by saying that America has been
threating us, and therefore, we had to develop the Atom Bomb to defend ourselves.
They say that had the US not been acting like a bully, we would not have made nukes.

Text of North Korea's Announcement

The following is the full text of the announcement carried on North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency as reported on the Reuters news agency:

"The field of scientific research in the DPRK (North Korea) successfully conducted an underground nuclear test under secure conditions on October 9, Juche 95 (2006) at a stirring time when all the people of the country are making a great leap forward in the building of a great, prosperous, powerful socialist nation.

"It has been confirmed that there was no such danger as radioactive emission in the course of the nuclear test as it was carried out under a scientific consideration and careful calculation.

"The nuclear test was conducted with indigenous wisdom and technology 100%. It marks a historic event as it greatly encouraged and pleased the KPA (Korean People's Army) and people that have wished to have powerful self-reliant defence capability.

"It will contribute to defending the peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the area around it."
