Nuclear accident, or successful nuclear test?


An accident would mean it didn't explode.. I call successful test..

On the plots explosions don't have a ramp up to the wave.. They just start off at 4.9 or whatever they are saying it is.. That's how you tell if it's a quake of not.


Didn't think of it like that. Good info, thanks!

If it was a successful nuke test i guess that would explain this:


CNN updated 9:58 PM EST, Mon February 11, 2013

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."

This might actually be an accident. A nuclear test site is VERY close to where the actual earth quake happened. Roughly 4 miles away from where USGS says the epicenter was. That is WAY to close to home for a test. Even if it was underground.

Maybe something went wrong? Successful test or Nuclear accident this doesn't look good either way.

KCNA news agency had courage after UNSC resolution.

It indirectly but clearly called out their supposed "allies" China and Russia for refusing to veto it and being USA puppets.

It's definitely heating up.

See below, per Yonhap news:

(URGENT) S. Korea, U.S. upgrade surveillance watchcon status

Past seismic readings from nuke tests from DPRK:

2009 - 4.7
2006 - 3.6


South Korea just raised their military alert status and Japan is going to have emergency meetings. So, yet another nuclear test, despite the UN saying their would be consequences......

Did you just say that what I am calling an underground nuke test was too close to a Nuke test site? You're confusing me a little.. Seems you'd want to test a nuke near or on a nuclear test site..

The road next to the earthquake says nuclear test Rd.. I'm not being snarky Im just confused at what you are saying.

And why are you referring to an accident and an Earthquake?

I'm thinking the US propaganda is getting to some of you guys.


Looks like a successful test to me. An unsuccessful one wouldn't register more than a 1 or 2 mag quake.. An unsuccessful nuke ends up as just a dirty bomb, after a small explosion..

i told my brother today that NKorea would perform at least one of their tests within 1-2 days. They had lost the limelight (Pope, etc.) and needed to get it back.

Plus, it was right before the State of the Union address.

Why would it be a game changer. North Korea has had a handful of nuclear weapons for years. The game changer would be a missle which could carry it to the western US coast. Oh wait, they proved they could do that in 2012. All they are doing is a "look over hear" just to give Iran a little more time.

So your saying the nuclear test is to close to a nuclear test site? They are insinuating that what registered was a nuke test... Lol

Could you imagine what an underground nuclear test will do? It will make a big cave with perfect walls because of the pressure and the power of the blast.

This is a good way to make an underground bunker, the only thing is the radiation left inside.

China's Earthquake Administration described it as a "suspected explosion", AFP reported. Japan's Meteorological Agency said the tremor was "different from a normal earthquake".

"We believe that there is a possibility that North Korea carried out a nuclear test, looking at past cases," said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.


It's made the BBC headlines whatever it is.

I was in South Korea for two years and we had a few earth quakes so before I jump to the conclusion of Nuke Test has it been confirmed by anyone as artificial or is it speculation at this point?

Yep it was a Nuke test

First word coming down the pipe on the 'other internet' is that it's probably a nuclear detonation, initial estimate of yield is 4.5kT.

That would be their third fizzle, although it's small enough that it could be a fake done with traditional explosives.

Wow, the info sure seems to indicate that they did indeed test a nuclear device. A relatively shallow quake registering 4.9 or so. Almost certainly a test.
