I agree. The world press is going nuts over this. I think it's just NK rattling the chain.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

We have reports here that SK felt a 3.4 magnitude earthquake from NK.

There is now a Pentagon source that is telling CNN that it happened. They are saying that positive confirmation will be available in about two hours.

Does NZ have a public Geological Survey group? Is there any announcements from them, if so?

USGS now is saying they have data coming in. They will announce in thirty minutes.

This isn't going to look too good for him, 300 billion and 3,000 lives chasing non existent nukes in Iraq, while allowing NK and soon Iran to acquire weapons of mass destruction. NK having them is going to really be something, as they have missle technology that could allow them to strike the US West Coast, and they are also fucking nuts.
