The message from N. Korea seems to be very clear now. They want the west to recognize them as a nuclear power.
But I believe the real danger may be N. Korea's cooperation with the Iranians (old news, but has their cooperation increased or decreased?) on nuclear testing and development.
Let's see what comes out of this UNSC emergency meeting .

AP:: NORTH KOREA has fired a short range missile
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A South Korean news agency has reported that North Korea test-fired a short-range missile.
The Yonhap news agency report Monday comes just hours after the communist nation declared that it successfully conducted a nuclear test.
Yonhap said North Korea fired a ground-to-air missile with a range of 80 miles (130 kilometers) from its northeastern Musudan-ri launch site. The regime also launched a long-range rocket from that site on April 5.
South Korea's military said it was checking the report
SEOUL, May 25 (Yonhap) -- North Korea appears to have test-fired a short-range missile Monday on its east coast after it conducted its second nuclear test, a South Korean source said.
The missile, with an estimated range of 130 kilometers, was fired from the coastal site where North Korea launched its long-range rocket on April 5, the source said.

I'm absolutely positive this is China pulling the strings to test Obama for a reaction. There's no way North Korea has the will or infrastructure to pull this off, not to mention the timing of this just screams China. The next couple of days are going to be extremely interesting.
