Fears of new nuclear test in North Korea after earthquake is detected near test site

data suggests it was not caused by a nuclear test

It was a magnitude 2.9 at a depth of 5km. The location is at a test site which very likely has been made unstable due to the last hydrogen bomb test. So I'd say this was natural.

And sad. Enough people have starved to death there already.

Wouldn't it be poetic, if their own nuclear tests caused an earthquake with a magnitude high enough to decimate their infrastructure.

I suggest a book called the Orphan Master’s son. We know generally how bad it is.

Nice try Kim

he always bombs it

He is not within his right to develop nuclear weapons.

I have this terrible feeling that NK is going to be a bit like Nazi Germany in terms of how we remember it - lots of people saying "we had no idea how bad it really was until ______"

Man how many times does this North Korea guy need to retake his nuclear test? You'd think by now he woulda passed...

Meh if Kim Jung Un wants to build and test nuclear weapons it's within his right. It serves as a deterent from other countries that invading the country. However, it is reckless to make threats and launch missiles without warning over or by our allies. It should go without saying that Kim Jung Un is a monster to his own people, but at the same time he's not crazy enough to start a war. He knows what the outcome will be. Every threat NK has made has been a reaction to the initial threat from the US or "if the United States does this, than __________.

That's the bomb
