This is how I see it al going down!
More sanctions imposed,
North Korea reacts by using its newly acquired nuke capability by striking S.Korea,
U.S and Co move in and take Un down.
To be honest with you, I thought North Korea might have taken the opportunity to make their third test a real life play...To attack S.Korea that is, let's face it no-one would have seen it coming.
Sure the test was small fry, but it would hurt a bit if he launched one out of anger towards further sanctions.
Flame away folks!

the party leadership promised to "stage a high-intensity, all-out action, and maximize its preparation ... so that just after an order is issued, we can destroy and sweep America and the South Korean puppet army, and achieve the historic achievement of reunified Korea."
Thee most intense words/promises coming out of little Un's mouth. I guess these last few weeks have proven myself wrong, when hoping this kid would be different than his heirs. Hoping see Switzerland for a few yeaers while in School, opened his eyes... Young mind, young heart. Evil.
One mistake and, IMO, SK and US will end this regime and I will be SO grateful
(as long as their is no nuclear fallout)

Ah yes, that's what we need more of these comments, just shows how much ignorance is denied inhere.
Each country should have the right to have nukes or none should have them.
If every country would have a nuke you wouldn't see all this testosterone. In fact most of these unstable country's are being made unstable for a reason. And yet some of us keep thinking that we can act as judge.
I would love to see your neighbor walk up to your door and tell you you should clean up your garden. Ha

I don't really understand the empty rhetoric being employed regarding North Korea. Did we not start the entire Iraq war simply because Saddam had weapons of mass destruction (allegedly)? And yet we know for a fact that the DPRK has nuclear weapons....yet we aren't invading them. Why not? Most curious indeed.
*Note: I am not at all advocating war in any way, shape, or form. Merely pointing out blaring hypocritical actions/inaction by the U.S.
The U.S. and its allies are vociferating about international "reaction", again taking issue with the DPRK's underground nuclear test as a "provocation".
With no desperate efforts can the U.S. shake the faith and will of the army and people of the DPRK and their resolution to wage a battle against the U.S. and wipe out enemies.
The DPRK will firmly defend the security and sovereignty of the country and nation from the U.S. hostile policy and arbitrary practices.

This is a joke, they are saber rattling with no saber. North Korea is a joke of a country. The only threatened country is to their South. China would squash North Korea if their britches got too big because it would cause instability to China. China does not want all out war on a border country that involves the U.S. again.
This is just that, a joke of a threat as it has been for 50+ years.
Some joke, considering it registered a 4.8 on the richter scale. Not sure how explosives register on the scale, but something tells me that whatever created that 4.8 wasn't a firecracker.

Practicing their nuclear ambitions on their own soil, poisoning their own people will not cause a war. they have ZERO ability to utilize the nuke other than trying to walk it across a border.
or the US mil knows and is not saying. should note others say the test was in a 10kt to 15 kt will be keeping an eye on this for the next few days, it still might come to light.
While seismic data was able to shed light on the likely yield of the underground test - estimated at 6-7 kilotons - the main hunt was for elusive radioisotopes that might confirm the type of fissile material that was used.
Experts are particularly keen to establish whether the North switched from plutonium - used in the 2006 and 2009 tests - to a new and self-sustaining nuclear weaponisation program using highly enriched uranium.
The South's state-run Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said Thursday it had analysed eight atmospheric samples apparently collected by warships and air force planes equipped with highly sensitive detection devices.
"No radioactive isotope has been found yet," the commission said in a statement.
