Don’t you realize the Chinese are hoping one day a nuclear N Korea will take out a US city. or one of our allies like Japan, and we probably won’t be in a position to retaliate against China for it.

That’s the game they are playing.

I suspect China would love for the North Korea problem to go away, and strike an alliance with the South in exchange for taking care of the problem.

1 kilo down but 0 distance from seismogram?
Could NK just send in the info and fake it?

At a depth of 1km, that look suspicious.

So, are we going to offer a sternly worded letter or what?

Well 2006 was 4.1, 2009 was 4.6, so maybe a slight improvement if anything. Look for the radionuclide report.

I still have a strong feeling that they are fooling with large amounts of explosives to throw the world off. You can blow a bunch of TNT up in a deep tunnel and get the same effect and still scare people.

I suppose they could set off a really big conventional explosives pop but it’s most likely real. We’ll be looking for any leakage that’s radioactive. Plus the seismologists are saying the earthquake is atypical meaning induced by an explosion.

I’m not real comfortable with strange creatures having nuclear toys.

Well, remember the Ryongchon explosion happened 2 years before the first nuke test in 2006 and it was a huge amount of ammonium-nitrate fertilizer? Why not use the free fertilizer that you get from Japan and South Korea, turn it into a bomb, blow up a tunnel, and terrorize the world with it?

A nuke has a much faster rise time than any chemical explosive. Makes a different signature.

We’ll fly a spy plane with an air sniffer to look for fugitive isotopes to confirm.

We have shot many “huge piles of high explosives” and know what they look like seismically, like Misty Picture and Minor Scale.

With that kind of a track record, I’m sure the South and ourselves kept track of what went in before the explosion.

Recent news report said that NK had two tunnels sealed and ready. Two are not far apart. I don't know if this is just a gambit to throw us off, even though such a trick won't serve any clear purpose. If there would be indeed a second test, we won't know when. The conventional process may be that they analyze the data from this test and then move on to the second one. That means it will take weeks before they attempt it. However, they can surprise us again by doing it way before we expected. If there is another test within a week, could it lead to DEFCON fast?

And that’s why we need or needed to take out their nuke capacity, despite the fact the consequences could be quite devastating.

Though if I had to bet, the N Korean leaders do not really want a big war they could lose.

It will serve the same purpose it always does. The west will trip over themselves sending food, fuel and the rest on the solemn promise they will never ever never pinky swear do it again.

And the next time and the next...

South Korea gave shipments of 300000 tons plus to NK in 2007 and looks like NK has been receiving tons of aid from other sources.

North Korea makes urea based fertilizer en masse, hence conversion to tons of urea nitrate is feasible.

Urea nitrate has 2X the detonation velocity of TNT so half the amount?

Someone with explosives background tell me if this is feasible.
