U.S. notifies S. Korea of N. Korea's nuke test in advance

SEOUL, May 26 (AP) - (Kyodo)—The chief of South Korea's intelligence agency said Tuesday the United States notified South Korea in advance of North Korea's second nuclear test, according to Yonhap News Agency.

"We were pre-notified by the United States that the North will conduct a nuclear test," Won Sei Hoon, director of the National Intelligence Service, was quoted as telling a parliamentary intelligence committee.

I'm sorry if my ignorance level is in this mist right here.

But what??

Why would they have allowed this, with the whole No more Nukes propaganda going on? Why would they notify them without a retaliation in mind, if they new it was going to happen why not try to interefere?

Too many questions i'm overloaded!!

Either that or it only took less than 5 minutes to crack some messages from North Korea to Beijing.
