North Korea has just announced it has tested a nuclear weapon, whether it was successfully detonated is still open to question.

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.

There is no confirmation from the US Geological Service, in fact they have said they have not detected anything.

BBC is reporting that an underground test has been carried out and that S.Korea has detected seismic activity.Washington sources are sceptical.

You can guess what Fox news said LOL. Um NZ herald says that NK stated it had conducted a test but American Intel could not confirm.

"A senior Pentagon official has told CNN they have no evidence of a nuclear test".

So far I'm not buying it.

My guess is that they lit some overgrown firecrackers down a mineshaft just to save face.They are reporting 'no radiation leakage', which would obviously be the case with a cherry-bomb.
