This is a tactic of North Korea - they spend all their money on their military and "threaten" the west and its allies when they need food.

The first two underground Nuclear Tests were "uneventful", other than immediate UN meetings and sanctions. Maybe 3rd time will be enough for SK and US to act? They blatantly test weapons, with assistance of IRan and Russia.. And all this talk about the IRanian Programme, eh? I guess containment is better in this situation.
However, I never heard words this direct used for War on either side.

I am hoping the war alert is merely defensive in nature, but call out the guard and stack some ammo by the slit in the wall..... I think this test is crucial to NKs and Irans developing weapons.....I believe both are trying to fit missiles with nukes.....(ie make pysically smaller warheads...)
I have a feeling the only thing stopping Iran is assembly......

It is apparent that our technology surpasses them by a hundred years. Not only can we blow up their nukes the second they launch, but these people are making themselves look pretty weak when such a small powerless country (in much need of help and assistance) is threatening the super military of the world. I feel bad and embarrassed for them. They seem really out of touch, these days people are trying to forgive one-another for their mistakes and forget racism and culture, and simply unite together and work together. Not this guy, he has an agenda to appear like he is a hard-ass. He must be a really short guy who demands respect?
