North Korea and Kim Jong Il has conducted Underground Nuclear Test … “UN”clear Response

 

It is being reported that North Korea has conducted an underground nuclear test. The test Northkorea_nukestestwas conducted at 9:36 p.m. EDT Sunday.   The tests were conducted in spite of opposition against them. Against UN demands that North Korea stop any nuclear tests, Kim Jong Il and North Korea defied the world and did them anyhow. What will the United Nations do now? Will they for once take a firm action against North Korea?

North Korea said Monday it has performed its first-ever nuclear weapons test. The country’s official Korean Central News Agency said the test was performed successfully and there was no radioactive leakage from the site. (Breitbart)

North Korea claims nuclear testKimJongIl

“The field of scientific research in the DPRK (North Korea’s official name) successfully conducted an underground nuclear test under secure conditions on October 9 … at a stirring time when all the people of the country are making a great leap forward in the building of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation,” KCNA reported.

Late Sunday in Washington, the U.S. military told CNN it believed the report to be true, but was working to fully confirm it.

Senior U.S. officials said they also believed the test took place. (CNN)

  Upon hearing the news, Asian stocks tumbled. There is nothing like an underground nuclear test to inspire “no confidence” in a region for its economy.

“A nuclear test is different from just firing missiles,” said Yang Jeung Won, who oversees about $2.1 billion as chief investment officer at Samsung Investment Trust Management Co. in Seoul. “North Korea is making its neighbors very nervous because unlike before, they don’t look that eager to talk things out.”

Markets rose in New Zealand, Malaysia and Thailand. They fell elsewhere.

What does North Korea say about the event that will most likely bring world sanctions upon them and bring a world closer to war? …Â   North Korea hails historic nuclear test. According to the China Daily:

The country’s official Korean Central News Agency said the underground test was performed successfully “with indigenous wisdom and technology 100 percent,” and that no radioactive material leaked from that test site.

“The test is 100 percent safe,” said the KCNA.

“It marks a historic event as it greatly encouraged and pleased the (Korean People’s Army) and people that have wished to have powerful self-reliant defense capability,” KCNA said. “It will contribute to defending the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the area around it.”

      Wow they did it. We’ve always lived in an uncertain world but these times are particular trying. Living in a world where some of the population straps up with exlosives & walks into a crowd to detonate in the name of Allah. Now that is scary. I don’t get & never will. Same thing with Kim, what does he want? Our attention for sure but to what end? Cooler heads will always prevail here but i can see MAJOR life changes & challenges that’ll have to be met by all Americans. Call me crazy but i think we’re being groomed for it…..for instance comunications technology is used by the mass’es for personal use can lend themselves to more of a military use if & when needed.
      Then there’s the new Tv show this fall *Jerico* about the US taking some nuclear hits…. from what country won’t be apparent until episode 5(?). Nothing against the show mind you but i do feel the times warrant people devising a Plan B scenerio ensuring survival,and that show was made to get people thinking in those terms.

      I heard the solution to this politically is to assist Japan to build it’s own nuclear weapon, which in turn would scare the Chinese, who in turn would muscle the North Koreans to quit.

    3. Richard on October 9th, 2006 6:40 am

      Japan and China jointly protested this test, to no avail.

      The Chinese response will be key, as China is about the only protector that North Korea has left. If Beijing decides that it will no longer tolerate the insane regime of North Korea, maybe something will be done.

      The United Nations? It can’t handle Iran, and won’t do anything about North Korea either.

      Meanwhile, most of the U.S. media will probably blame Bush for this … it seems to be the one idea that they have for everything in the world.

      We Americans have to realize that there are forces in the world that are operating independently of us. So many people in this country seem to think that, ultimately, we can wave a magic wand and change things. We can’t. Not any more, anyway.

      This news probably is more threatening to Japan and China than to us, at least in the short-term, as Pyongyang probably has no missile system at present that could hit the U.S. But further on down the line, who knows?

      Would North Korea ever fire a nuclear missile at the U.S., knowing that to do so would invite (ensure?) its obliteration? Who knows. But it almost certainly will have the CAPABILITY of doing so in the future. And if it can and will support a nuclear weapons industry, even as some of its people are starving, then it’s conceivable that it will sell nuclear weapons to terrorist groups to raise cash. We shall see.

      At least the Japanese, who are realists, are taking this seriously, judging from the comments of the new prime minister Abe. Maybe our own media will take another look at the world and realize that we do have enemies out there.

    4. Richard on October 9th, 2006 6:41 am

      A “great leap forward”? God almighty, using that phrase shows pretty clearly that North Korea is in a time warp. It evokes the Maoist policies of the 1950s.

      THE “NOW-NUCLEAR” NUT IN THE NORTH

      President Bush said over 5 years ago that the USA was at war with “terror” and he identified 3 “states” which he said comprised an “Axis of Evil” : Iran, Iraq and North Korea.

      The mainstream media should indeed pay much more attention to current Islamofacist riots in Sweden and France, and some of the horrible events and acts of terror perpetrated on the people there. And further acts of inspired terrorism are worthy of coverage too.

      That American based media seem ignorant of the growing threats to American citizens in the war on terror will, in retrospect, look shameful.

      .

    6. Miss-Underestimated on October 9th, 2006 9:35 am

      When you say axis of evil, I agree, my fear is that thru civilizations, there have been conquerers to take over certain countries/people. That there, is my fear, that evil will indeed take over.

      Mainstream media will not pay attention, if it is not in your face type of hype forget it. I don’t think they are smart enuff to see it.

      Wake up, it appears that North Korea has started its dress rehearsal, what next?

    7. dennisintn on October 9th, 2006 10:13 am

      russia, china, and japan are totally peeved at north korea for this. i’d say little fat boy is about to be visited by someone who is going to make his day. so to speak. heart attack? bad sushi? fall on his steak knife? who would complain?

      UN’s real role is to watch it happen. It’s unfortunate that North Korea is so very socially and politically isolated. Now it’s like dealing with “the aliens”- – totally unreachable.

    11. Houston on October 9th, 2006 12:40 pm

      I heard this AM that South Korea had cut off Aid to North Korea? I did not know that South Korea was giving Aid to North Korea?

    12. Brenda T. on October 9th, 2006 1:22 pm

      The U.N. is likely doing nothing more than changing their underwear at this moment. It took over 10 years and a dozen “threatening resolutions” before the USA stepped in and said ENOUGH when it came to Iraq. Sadly, this came after Sadaam had “enough” time to move his weapons elsewhere.

      Kim “mentally ill” is an elitist (is that spelled right?) who feels better than everyone and above anything.

      I did notice that a S. Korean has been nominated to head the U.N. Talk about stoking the fire!

      Brenda

    13. roy on October 9th, 2006 2:02 pm

      Brenda, you still believe the Bush story that Iraq had WMD?

    14. Para2Legal on October 9th, 2006 2:09 pm

      Well, we could be in deep doo-doo. What do you think the odds are that NK will sell the big one to terrorist organizations???

    15. Brad on October 9th, 2006 3:05 pm

      There is no oil to speak of in North Korea, so watch, Iran will be invaded long before North Korea.

      Well I surprised that nut even did it underground.
      Somebody assainate him before I have to deal with fallout. Please.

    18. yoyo muffintop on October 9th, 2006 10:37 pm

      Raise your hand if you’re tired of the UN issuing “stern” statements? Sanctions ain’t gonna cut it on this. This guy is crazy. This nuke test was for us, and I believe “us” needs to react independently in our own best interests.

      Allan K’s solution sounds good.

    19. Brenda T. on October 10th, 2006 8:24 am

      Roy,

      Ask the relatives of the dead Kurds who had this stuff called mustard gas poured into their village…unless you don’t consider mustard gas a weapon of mass destruction.

      Personally, I consider Sadaam all the “weapon of mass destruction” that was necessary for the brave, and wise, to act. Sit home on your safe couch while the good soilders die to keep those who would love to destroy us across the ocean (for now). God help America when the weak outnumber the brave….

      Brenda

    20. Miss-Underestimated on October 10th, 2006 11:54 am

      Brenda T.

      Sadaam tried to tell us that gasing the Kurds was a figment of our imagination.

      I like you think we may be at that cross road of weak vs brave and evil vs good

      I heard NK is threatening more testing

      Today, North Korea sent mixed signals in the wake of the test, suggesting it might come back to the negotiating table but, at the same time, threatening more of the same. No country is more concerned than South Korea, and the ABC’s North Asia correspondent Shane McLeod joins me now by phone from Seoul.

    21. Brenda T. on October 10th, 2006 12:22 pm

      Miss UE,

      Don’t know who you are, but we’re certainly from the same mold. Ever heard of Roy Masters? You’d love him (www.fhu.com). ONLY for the thinking person who believes in a higher power, but 99% of our Monkeys already fit that description.

      You can read alot of his books and listen to many lectures free of charge on the website. He is facinating. I drive 1 hr. each way to work and back, so I listen to his tapes then. You’ll be hooked…promise!

      Brenda

      I am from the school: of every mistake I made I own. Not my mother, dad, teacher or whoever. They are my mistakes and I have to take full responsibilty for every one of them.

      I am also a believer. There has to be a higher power, we are not random cells just bouncing around.

      BTW I will check out the site
      Thanks

      Somehow all the talk of how Kim is a crackpot eccentric, while Obama is portrayed as fatherly, all-knowing, and wise doesn’t quite square with reality when the “crackpot” is running circles around our flawless messiah.

      This is the same Obama that was apparently busy with his puppy-vetting process or playing basketball while the Russians where nabbing our Afghan supply air-base in Kyrgizstan.

      Obama is endangering our national security, a failure of his most primary duty as president… maybe we should draw a line here?

      Living in a celebrity-driven/liberal/MSM fantasy world is not a right of Obama supporters to cling-to indefinitely, as it’s both the voters and the press’ duty to make informed, good-faith decisions… not waste power making a hollow fashion statement instead.

      It’s rapidly getting to the point where this kind of willfully-ignorant “thinking” is not just irresponsible, but dangerous. Obamania’s sheeple are deeply delusional… and as Obama’s enablers, these fools are going to get us killed
