And remember the NK and Iran are working together.
now just how big of a bang?? and be in no hurry to get the final answer but here is a tidbit er morsel to munch on, from the link
North Korea, which had been threatening a third nuclear test, had informed Beijing and Washington on Monday of plans to undertake a test, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.
the wait is on , does this mean WAR?????
North Korea is not prone to seismic activity and it may take hours or even days to determine officially whether a nuclear test had been conducted.
South Korea's defense ministry said the North Korean seismic event could be the result of a 6-7 kiloton or stronger nuclear blast. South Korea's President Lee Myung-bak called a national security council meeting for 0400 GMT.

Since the North does not have the Supercomputing capability to design their Nukes to be 100% able to detonate without testing...they have to test them. Still...these are PRIMATIVE old style circa 1945 Fission Bombs which are too large and too heavy to be placed atop of their current ICBM.
A Nuke as large as this type as far as size would need a MASSIVE rocket to be used as a delivery system. I don't see them having a small warhead or accurate missile for many years.
