First id like to start off by saying that i searched for this but haven't seen it posted in its own thread yet.
I'm putting this in the WW3 forum because of the multitude of nations that are screaming for nuclear proliferation in Korea. If its in the wrong forum or needs to be moved somewhere else please do so at your discretion mods.

Just hours after reports suggested that North Korea had abandoned its plan to detonate a nuclear device, the U.S. Geological Survey reported a 4.9-magnitude earthquake north of the 38th parallel on Tuesday. The Korean peninsula, by the way, is not prone to earthquakes. Not natural ones, anyways. The United Nations called it an "unusual seismic event" — at first. Within minutes, a United Nations Security Council diplomat said that there had been a nuclear test in North Korea. And within an hour of that, the AP reported that South Korea "suspects" a nuclear test as well, while Reuters reported that South Korea was "on alert" for additional tests or missile launches. (Analysts focusing on Northeast Asia and North Korea watchers on social media immediately began suspecting a second underground tunnel could mean that a follow-up test might be forthcoming.) South Korea called an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council for 9 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday morning, an hour ahead of a scheduled meeting. U.S. officials told CNN they were working to confirm the reports. Japan's Kyodo news service said the Japanese defense ministry was scrambling aircraft to look at radiation effects, though a spokesperson for the government said they were unlikely to spread, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe threatened new sanctions. Not that sanctions have stopped the acceleration of the reclusive but provocative state's nuclear and missile programs.

North Korea has never gotten on the wagon, so its of no surprise that they disregard United Nations sanctions, as well as the rest of the world, that has been striving since the end of the cold war to disband nuclear armament.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea said it successfully detonated a miniaturized nuclear device at a northeastern test site Tuesday, defying U.N. Security Council orders to shut down atomic activity or face more sanctions and international isolation. The underground explosion could take North Korea a big step closer to its goal of building a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a long-range missile that could threaten the United States. It will also be seen as a direct message from young leader Kim Jong Un to the United States, Pyongyang's former wartime enemy. North Korea's official state media said the test was conducted in a safe manner and is aimed at coping with "outrageous" U.S. hostility that "violently" undermines the North's peaceful, sovereign right to launch satellites. North Korea faced sanctions after a December launch of a rocket that the U.N. and Washington called a cover for a banned missile test. Pyongyang said it was a peaceful satellite launch.

If they were actual communications satellites then i would have no problem with them developing missiles for their own advancement. If you couple the rocket launches with the nuclear testing, we have an all hands on deck kind of situation brewing here. This needs to be stopped now before North Korea cracks completely.

(CNN) -- Amid talk of a possible nuclear bomb test, North Korea vowed Tuesday to carry out a "high-intensity, all-out action." The promise emerged from a meeting of the ruling Workers' Party and was reported by the state-run news agency KCNA. "It emphasized the necessity to continue on with launching artificial satellites ... and long-range rockets," the agency reported. It also said that 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."

Is North Korea getting ready for the end all be all scat storm?

A reunified Korea aye? I don't see that happening any time soon. I believe that North Korea's economy is so bad that they may be preparing for an invasion of the south. North Korea has had cannibalism in the not to distant past.

Reports from inside the secretive famine-hit pariah state, North Korea, claim a man has been executed after murdering his two children for food. The grim suggestion that North Koreans are turning to cannibalism were reported by the Asia Press, and published in the Sunday Times. They claim a 'hidden famine' in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae has killed 10,000 people, and there are fears that cannibalism is spreading throughout the country.

I don't know what this world is coming to these days but i feel the rubber band effect more and more.
We all know what happens when you stretch a rubber band too far.......SNAP!

When was the last time that a DPRK nuke test caused the third world war?

It didn't

I predict the same.

They probably just need more foreign aid/want to feel like they have an effect on the world stage.

Really though, this is the best they seem to be able to do in terms of trying to make a splash. They haven't even proven they can get the nukes anywhere useful.

I don't think that WWIII will start with them.

It's amazing how many people are up in arms about the imminent threat of a nuclear Iran, the Commies from the north, the Socialist political revival in Europe and the West, and the pre-occupation with towel heads in the middle east, yet here is a rogue regime that demonstrates it's nuclear abilities and capabilities to detonate massive explosives and launch missiles across vast oceans, and the same people treat it like a joke. Imagine if NK was situated in South America? Yanks (and the UN for that matter) wouldn't hesitate to take it out then. I think the world is waking up to these nuts and regardless of their intentions, whether they are just crying out for foreign aid, they are defying international laws and threatening regional stability, flying that juicy piece of poop back in the world's dopey looking face.

Which country has not just tested lotsa nukes, but actually resorted to use em.. plus tons of radiological uranium galore.. in lotsa WAR?

How does a country testing its weapons make "WW3 at hand"? It doesn't. Misleading thread titles are misleading.

Nothing will come of this, the us/uk, nato/un lack any real conviction when faced with a real threat. Expect lots of statements such as ''we condemn this in the strongest possible terms'' and not much else...

Sensational post.

Did everyone forget about Iran and their enrichment facilities? Iran refused to bow to sanctions placed on it, and all of a sudden an "Insider" blows up the complex. Why does that sound like Black Ops or any other off the record type of activities?

Do you believe that the rest of the world is going to let these unstable societies create the equivalent of an End Game machine?

Pyongyang’s family-run government is already cut off economically from almost every country but China. United Nations sanctions have made it more difficult for the North to launder its illicit money, import its luxury goods and acquire some weapons materials. But U.N. sanctions and bans have not stifled North Korean missile launches, nuclear tests or weapons trades. Instead, the North does as it pleases, relying on domestic and illegally imported technology, in part because it has little fear about further international condemnation, some security analysts said. North Korea says its satellite-launching program is about space research, not weapons technology, and is permissible under an international space treaty.


A communist country with a grudge against the USA amongst others, building long range rockets under the guise of space research. Meanwhile deep underground the North Koreans test yet another device capable of unimaginable destruction. These two projects that the North has been working on for the last fourteen years have run concurrent to each other, but they aren't related in any way?

Security experts cautioned that North Korea must still overcome several hurdles before it can directly threaten the United States with an intercontinental ballistic missile. It must miniaturize a nuclear weapon so it is small enough to mount on the rocket and hone technology that will allow the device to reenter the atmosphere from space.

(Reuters) - North Korea conducted its third nuclear test on Tuesday in defiance of existing U.N. resolutions, drawing condemnation from around the world, including from its only major ally, China, which summoned the North Korean ambassador to protest.


(Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council on Tuesday "strongly condemned" North Korea's third nuclear test and vowed to take action against Pyongyang, the president of the Security Council said. "The members of the Security Council strongly condemned this test, which is a grave violation of Security Council resolutions," South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan, whose country is president of the council this month, told reporters. He said the council would now consider "appropriate measures." U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said that Washington and its allies intended to "augment the sanctions regime" already in place due to Pyongyang's 2006 and 2009 atomic tests.


Yes just what they need, more sanctions, its not like they aren't eating each other already. Because of North Korea's actions in the past and current ones we impose these sanctions in order to choke off the Norths ability to import / export. North Korea is on the verge of total economic collapse, yet they are still trying to save face by flexing their muscles.

(Reuters) - Israel said on Tuesday that the international community must make clear to North Korea after its latest nuclear test that such activities cannot be tolerated. In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said the test, North Korea's third in defiance of U.N. resolutions, and a ballistic missile launch in December raised "grave concerns" about proliferation of nuclear and ballistic technologies. Israel, which is generally believed to possess the Middle East's only nuclear arsenal but refuses to confirm or deny the fact, says a nuclear-armed Iran would threaten its existence, and has hinted strongly that it will take military action if international efforts fail to curb Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

(Reuters) - North Korea told the U.N. disarmament forum on Tuesday that it would never bow to resolutions on its nuclear program and that prospects for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula were "gloomy" because of a hostile U.S. policy. "The U.S. and their followers are sadly mistaken if they miscalculate the DPRK would respect the entirely unreasonable resolutions against it. The DPRK will never bow to any resolutions," Jon Yong Ryong, first secretary of North Korea's mission in Geneva, told the Conference on Disarmament, referring to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).


The North blames the USA for the sanctions that were fully justified, like when the North executed southerners a few years did that NK. Continual development of ballistic missiles against UN did that too NK. Three nuclear tests against the NPT.....yup that was you also.

North Korea, you have done all this to your self, and now you have finally went and done it! You isolated your self completely from the rest of the world. It was your hand and yours alone that was instrumental in your current state of affairs. You even scared away china, now that's saying something about the situation.

Your people are starving at the hands of your Government and its only a matter of time before it hits the fan over there.

It looks to me like a game of chess......strategic placement of forces world wide, when all the pieces are in place you begin your combo attack.

I believe that their is going to be some major conflicts on the rise in the coming year.

On a side note, a good friend of mine in the USAF was called up the other day for a third tour abroad......guess where he got shipped off to? South Korea. I am aware that there are active bases there run by the USA.

He didn't have an exact number for me but he said that a few flights were heading out....nothing scheduled to return troops from there.

I know my foil hat is a bit snug this morning, but maybe just maybe its not only me that sees where this is heading.
I think we are in a state of cold war brought on by the horrid global economy, amongst other things. NK is falling apart at the seams......probably from all the Chinese crap they import, but i don't think that's going to be a problem for them anymore.

I was trying to keep this short and on point, sorry if a ran away with it a bit.
