US detects second N Korea 'blast'
News.com.au ^ | 10/10/06 | correspondents in Washington

Posted on 10/09/2006 10:49:24 AM PDT by Michael_Michaelangelo

US intelligence has detected an explosion of less than one kilotonne in magnitude in North Korea but has not been able to determine whether it was nuclear or not, a senior intelligence official said.

The official, who asked not to be identified, said that first-time nuclear tests historically have been in the several kilotonne range.

“We are aware that there was a sub-kilotonne explosion in North Korea,” said the official. “We have not been able to determine at this point whether it was in fact nuclear.”

lets hope they are calling bluff on this one.

last thing we want is nukes being set off here and there.

This should get interesting pretty quickly.

I doubt China would let Little Kim test a WMD without the blessing of the party, so if Kim tested these weapons without the comm party approval I would expect a swift hand from China reather soon.

Problem being this.

If China plays a strong hand, it fears that North Korea will fall in on itself and China has to deal with a crowd of North Korean citizens on its border. This is an economic problem for China and South Korea. Unless China comes in and literally makes the North Korean government pro-China and along the lines of a "puppet" government, this is going to end very messy.

Here's hoping for the puppet government scenario then. lol. Never would I have thought I'd be thinking that.

Any US or Canadian Websites confirming this?

KNNSBS is starting it's programming day... see what the opening story will be (if I can understand it)... found an Aus link that does not confirm nor deny... also the the USGS link appears to be yesterday's test or identical (I could be wrong)... a test series does make some sense.

It's very early in the morning in Korea. Surely they would need some form of lighting for this test. Wouldn't the lights in an unusual spot show up on the satellites? I believe we are starting to see some "fearmongering" now.

Drudge Report just removed it from their site.

Looks like a false alarm unless someone has different Seismic data

KNNSBS led the 5AM news with Bush's reaction and photos of aircraft carriers... NADA on a second blast... anyone with actually evidence beyond a second "possible blast"? I'm comin' up with bupkus for proof...

I don't think we can be sure about the supposed 1st test.

I keep looking and I'm seeing little beyond 'claims' and comment and absolutely zero about actual definitive and factual 'proof'.

Has it even been proved beyong doubt that a 1st nuclear detonation happened never mind mere rumours of a 2nd?

Yes, you're riight Sminkey - with the exception of the Russians everyone is being rather cautious about what they say and even some of the media are being careful not to be too adamant about what has happened.

I have a feeling that this may be due to the relatively low yield of the device, (approx 1 kiloton or lower is generally being reported), only the Russians are reporting anything significantly larger which may explain their conviction that it was nuclear.

There is definitely still an element of doubt in my mind too.

Sminkey, I've been sitting here mulling over what you just posted. I came to the fact that I was "told" that this all happened, and operated off of that fact, not even questioning it. Scared the heck out of me. Not as good a skeptic as I thought. Have we truly verified the first one? And that it wasn't simply a lot of TNT underground that we are reacting to?

Sure Lil Kim is crazy, but isn't this exactly what a crazy person would do??

I don't know if there's any truth in it. All I do know is that you can rest assured that North Korea is going to push the envelope on this. They are going to see how far they can go before the U.S decides o act. You can rest assured on that one fact.

Hmm, why would they want to test the world further, when the response has been merely more sanctions.

Maybe this was an explosion to remove the debri's left after the half/succesful test?
instead of clearing that crap way, just bomb the bajee'zaz outta it a bit more.

Interesting but, ill be keepin n eye on dis.

I dont think there was a 2nd blast, just some people getting nervous and misinterpreting facts. China and Japan are the key players here. China will get Jung II under control sonner rather than later by whatever means necessary. All the US has to do is start making preparatations to arm Japan with Tactical Nukes. This is the last thing China would want. Make no mistake China still fears a weoponized Japan. That is the key in the region we should use to get the North Korean problem solved.
