What are you talking about in case you didn't know China sent an emergency alert to Washington, D.C. through the United States embassy in Beijing at which time President George W. Bush was told by National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley "shortly after" 10 p.m that a test was imminent.We knew before they tested the nuke!
PS why do you think China considered it an emergency to alert us they knew we would detect it!

I agree with jackflap. We have systems in place to detect nuclear devices all around the globe. Even the smallest hint of plutonium or uranium that has been weaponized is detectable. I will chalk this up to urban legend, and pray that I am right.

On the plus side, though many ships are un-inspected, those with questionable origins or stops along the way are watched quite closely, I would assume

I would agree that any threat posed against the American populace, by WMD's at least, is not likely to come from a bunch of ME cave-dwellers.
And have no fear for my safety. The authorities are already well aware of who I am and what my intentions are. I've been vetted.
My hope is that they've paid attention.
