A Korean-Japanese scholar who is considered North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s unofficial spokesman said yesterday that Pyongyang has a hydrogen bomb it would test as part of a series of actions mentioned in its statement against the United States.

In an interview with MBC radio, Kim Myong-chol, director of the Center for Korean-American Peace, a Japan-based pro-North Korean research agency, said the Stalinist state is ready to test its H-bomb or conduct a nuclear test larger than its proclaimed test on Monday.

The North’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement Wednesday that it would respond with a series of physical measures if Washington steps up pressure on Pyongyang.

Well, they made good the promise of detonating a nuke, so i think

the USA and the world better be paying attention.

WASHINGTON – As reports circulated of a second imminent nuclear test, a high-ranking North Korean official who is called the unofficial spokesman for Kim Jong-il issued a not-so-veiled threat to the United States today in an interview with South Korean radio.

My, my, oh my, what happen with Iran I though that just a few weeks ago we were heading for Armageddon and the end of time with Iran nuclear holocaust.


I guess the end of times prophecies are our of whack because now it seems that it will come from NK.

Beware people time is running out.

WHAT??????????

Whoa!

Hold the phone here, folks.
Watch the context.

They said they will be testing a hydrogen bomb as a series of actions against the US.
They did NOT say they will launch a hydrogen bomb at the US.

To me, it sounds like they are showing more defiance by going ahead with their testing program, not threatening to blow the crap outta anyone.

A rather important distinction, don't you think?

FiFteen,

You copped the title of this thread straight off another discussion board - EXACTLY. And then didn't even add any thoughts of your own on the original post.



Bad karma.

1 week isnt long.
Hell we've been waiting years for Iran to give us a HINT of what they are doing.
Atleast Nkorea has the decency to our right tell us, instead of throw us a bone now n then n make us look stupid.

Even if they do test another bomb in a week..
Is it going to make china stand up a bit more?

All we are succesfully doing is giving them time to perfect a science they obvioulsy didnt achieve last time.

I still thnk we need to hit lil kim now.. today.. send in a pack of jets and bomb him..
remove the leader..

Not after he's perfected nuclear fission..
Not after he's attacked someone..
But now..
His army surely wont follow a 2nd in charge general..

Irans staying quiet tho... whats up with that?
Maybe there busy reading the instructions on their new gift from Nkorea?

Id like to say, the world is obviously just going to have to accept the fact that countries whom do not look favourably on america.. are going to achieve the bomb.

The only mean of stopping them.. is bombing them.. NOW!
Even that wont gaurantee it..

Face it.. Its a lost cause.


We now live in a world where the unpredicatable enemy has the bomb.
HE's been screaming for acceptance and for the world to allow them this technology.
Now they have it, lets see what they intend on doing with it.

If they truley are hellbent on nuking someone, well.. they better believe the unbeleivable consequences it will have on MANKIND.

According to World N*t Daily it's only a test.

NK has no means by which to confidently strike mainland US soil, with Any-type ordinance. At best they could hope for Alaska or the Hawaiin Islands.

provocative propaganda IMO

If you're going to attack america, you'd be pretty silly to 'test' weapons on it.
I dont find this article very logical...

FiFteen,

I'm not trying to give you bad karma. I have none to spare to give you. Just declaring "not good".

No worries, and by the way, I don't think NK is going to bomb us.

I actually hope that NK continues to conduct tests of their nuclear weapons. The more they set off, the more their alleged small stockpile of nukes is reduced! Last estimate I heard was that NK had something like half a dozen nukes. We haven't even fired a single shot or held a single one-on-one talk with them, and we're already close to reducing their nuclear weapons stockpile by 1/3!!!!


Regardless of what people think of Kim Jong Ill- I don't believe the man is stupid. Irrational? Maybe. Porn addict? Probably. Suicidal? Not at all. He's just doing what he feels is in the best interests of maintaining his tight grip on power. He would never dream of launching an unprovoked attack (especially a nuclear one) on the United States, or Japan or South Korea for that matter. He'd be signing his own death warrant.

I also must comment on the title of this thread. I don't know if the original author was intentionally misleading us when he wrote it, or if he just misread/misunderstood the article. Clearly, the article and the comments made by this NK advisor, do not speak of launching a nuclear attack against the United States. They only speak of conducting further tests in defiance of the US. I'm not sure if the author's motives are simple, good-old-fashioned fear-mongering, a feeble attempt at generating ATS points, or just a lack of command of the English language and the inability to comprehend simple statements. I'll give him/her the benefit of the doubt and assume that it's the latter, and neither of the former. In that case I must strongly recommend, assuming the poster is an adult, that he enroll in some English and/or reading/writing courses at his local community college before starting anymore threads on here.

Let me break down kilotons and megatons for everyone so you can understand what a crock this is. 100 tons of tnt equal 1 kiloton, with that said the estimated test that N. Korea set off was somewhere around 15 kilotons. This is very similiar to the United States Trinity tests in the early stages of our own nuclear program. Now the United States after ww2 worked for some time to develope the Hydrogen bomb and did not achieve success until Nov 1, 1952. Now, when you start getting into hydrogen bombs you reach a new level of destruction "MEGATONS" wich 1 megaton is equal to 1,000 kilotons. The first hydrogen bomb set off by the Russians measured 15 megatons. So when you look at how long it took some of the most advanced countries in the world to create the hydrogen bomb, I find it very unlikely for N. Korea to go from 15 kiloton bombs to 15 megaton (15,000 kiloton) bombs in only a matter of weeks. Now I know some of you may say, well...maybe there getting help from the Chinese (or whoever). Now I can't see China or Russia allowing some radical midget to play with really big firecrackers in there back yard. Not to mention the average payload of China's and Russia's nuclear arsonal is somewhere around 1 megaton, why let another country that is unpredictable be able to match your own stash.

Erm...

Kilo = Thousand
1000 tones of TNT = 1 Kiloton bomb.

As for the skimpy yeild of the North Korean test, successful detonation is what's important. More tonnage is mostly just a matter of prefecting the art.

Besides, do you really think this blast going off in your backyard would be something you could dismiss as "small"?

Im quoting original measurments taken from trinity. Great movie if you ever get the chance to see it called the Atomic Bomb Movie and actually shows how they set up the insturments to measure the blast. Footage wasn't declassified until 1998.
