North Korea is clearly trying to scare and provoke us. First, they launch a missile on the 4th of July... Now on Memorial Day. The day of remembrance for our troops... They set off a nuke. This really stinks of NWO imo btw... It's really putting me on edge.
In October 2006, North Korea witnessed the incredible diplomatic success it could reap from belligerence. Its first nuclear test brought resumption of the six-party talks, which gave Kim Jong Il cover to further advance his nuclear program.
16 October 2006. Add DNI release.
OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE
PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE
WASHINGTON, D.C. 20511
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ODNI News Release No. 19-06
October 16, 2006
Statement by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on the North Korea Nuclear Test
"Analysis of air samples collected on October 11, 2006 detected radioactive debris which confirms that North Korea conducted an underground nuclear explosion in the vicinity of P'unggye on October 9, 2006. The explosion yield was less than a kiloton."

A P'unggye-ri is located at coordinates 41.1361N, 129.1567E, several miles south of the location of the seismic disturbance at 41.294N, 129.094E reported by USGS below. There is another city by the same name some distance to the north.
14 October 2006. USGS has moved the epicenter of the North Korean "seismic disturbance" about 2.5 miles west of the original reported location, and has reduced the uncertainty measurement from 6.5 miles to 4.5 miles. Revised and new Google Earth annotated photos added. While there are a number of mine openings shown in the area, little of the tailings which would indicate deep mining are seen, although tailings may have been removed to camouflage deep mining.
An interesting area several miles to the north of the seismic disturbance shows a mountain top cleared and levelled with what appear to be numerous boreholes regularly spaced in the cleared area. Photos of this area below. As with other North Korean mining exploration and development these may be conventional probes for ore and unrelated to nuclear testing. However, dual-use mining would be expected for both military and commercial purposes as North Korea develops its underground protection of military, governmental and public facilities. Comments invited on what this could be. Send to jya[at]cryptome.net.

I have a funny feeling Obama's out barbequing right now, wait how stupid am I, he's having someone else barbeque for him pardon my ignorance.
This adminstration is very loose, albeit bush wasn't great, but I did feel relatively safe during it, this one I feel N. Korea could launch a nuke over here, and while it was coming Obama would just hold a press conference with a teleprompter telling everyone it'll be ok, then big smile for photo op.
