The guards are in a state of constant readiness. They have one eye on the wall, and one eye on the North Korean soldier at the top of the steps of the big gray building.

Why is the US dabbling in Korea affair in the first place
Poor koreans on both sides as chess pieces for some idiots at the top
I've just read about this, it's the headline news in all the papers over here. Apparently it was a bigger test than the 2006 one. If true then it's good to see the DPRK increasing its national defence and advancing forward technologically, and equally funny to see western politicians and journalists clamouring to denounce it while cheering for imperialist wars!
Quite right James! It's always amusing how us westerners are so quick to condemn isolated nations for carrying out their tests and self defence measures. Im sure no-one would bat an eyelid if we conducted a test for our nations security
This is wonderful news! According to the reports this has breached 4.6 on the richter scale, higher than the 2006 test -- this could indicate up to 10 kilotonnes (Mb = 4.262+0.973 logY)! Go DPRK! Praise to the Dear Leader!

Asian people are just amazing in their loyality towards their leaders. I have lived 4 yrs in Asia and I have saw that "Kamikaze Mentality" from closest possible range in Thailand Crisis.
Everyone can remember Japanese brave young soldiers, and that mentality is not "hoax information" from history. I have personally followed half an year North Korean "news" broadcast in my countryhouse in Thailand.
Its amazing what can be brainwashing in total scale - and it has continued for decades without a break. North Korean people are truly fighting against worst satan above the earth when they see US flags in their sights...
You guys really should have seen those every day news in NK news: ( Pics did follow like this in official reports )
Bush - "Death" - Bush - "explosion" - Bush - "slaughtering" - Bush - "Marines" - Bush...
From evening to another, and that was only just little over year ago!

All eyes need to be focused on the Mideast where the real threat of war lies. If you're waiting for war in Korea then you are going to be disappointed. There are other reasons behind why NK is doing what it is doing but it certainly isn't to start a war with the U.S. They are putting on a show for their own people - period. There is nothing else to be read into this and this is why we won't be sending more military support to the region.
But there are few military options to counter North Korea's move, and analysts say most of them would seem aggressive and only ratchet up the tension.
"As North Korea escalates day by day, you don't want to be provocative," says Nicholas Szechenyi, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a think tank in Washington. The US military should sit this one out because this is a time for diplomacy, not a show of force, he says.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates, en route to an annual security summit in Singapore Friday, signaled as much, saying North Korea's actions so far do not warrant sending more US troops to the region.
"I don't think that anybody in the [Obama] administration thinks there is a crisis," Mr. Gates told reporters aboard his military jet early Friday morning, still Thursday night in Washington.
"What we do have, though, are two new developments that are very provocative, that are aggressive, accompanied by very aggressive rhetoric," he said. "And I think it brings home the reality of the challenge that North Korea poses to the region and to the international community."
Arthur Neville Chamberlain (18 March 1869 – 9 November 1940) was a British Conservative politician and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1937 to 1940. Chamberlain is best known for appeasement foreign policy, in particular regarding his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938, conceding the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Germany, and for his "containment" policy of Germany in 1939 that culminated in declaring war on Germany on 3 September 1939.

Breaking: US Army moves to DEFCON 2
Sources close to MiNa claim the US Army has moved their alert level to Defcon 2. This was initiated by the alarming situation in North Korea. The US Army has over 35,000 troops stationed in South Korea, well within reach of North Korean convential weapons. Blah, blah, blah ...
