All your reasons to discount this story are based on wether it was an accident and how a government would react to such a mistake.

OK bear with me - this is from memory.
Nuclear detonations and complaince with international treaties are monitored on a quad tier mechanism.
First of all is sesmic data, shared world wide by quake monitoring station, secondly comes satellite over watch of suspicios areas or known former test sites. Thirdly comes radio isotope monitoring by both high altitude manned and unmanned craft flying down wind from any suspicious areas of interest.
Lastly comes a formely classified ability to monitor in real time ionespheric effects from acoustic waves generated by underground nuclear tests.
The explosion causes ripples in the earths structure, and this sends waves of acoustic sound up into the ionisphere where beams of radio waves are streaming across potential sites.
The ripples cause disturbances and this gives a solid proof of a nuclear test. Interestingly an earth quake doesn't produce this specific frequency and thus cannot be confused (and neither do conventional explosives, its all to do with the make up and physics)
HAARP would of known in seconds if this was a nuke test. The silence is deafening thus i feel that they knew seonds after the event. hence China asked them for help..
Thirty-five so-called quake lakes were created by the 7.9-magnitude quake.

that is ridiculous,nuclear explosion can be detected by many countries,and china's nuclear testing sites are in the northwestern desert where it has no people there,never heard any country's earth quake was caused by their nuclear test,why china is this special?
