North Korea is getting ready to conduct a fourth nuclear test to respond to policies of the United States, according to details from South Koreas spy agency published by the Yonhap news agency.
USA Today reported:
The North is getting ready to conduct the test because of what it says are the confrontational policies of the United States and its allies, according to South Koreas National Intelligence Service, Yonhap reported. The spy agency said the test was not imminent. It did not elaborate on the type of test that would be held. North Korea last conducted a nuclear test in 2013. It also held tests in 2006 and 2009, drawing United Nations sanctions.
The news comes about a month after North Korea claimed to have reactivated normal operation at its atomic bomb fuel fabrication plants. The country said via state media that plutonium and uranium enrichment facilities located at the Yongbyon fuel fabrication plant had been rearranged, changed, or readjusted and they started normal operation.
The claims raised suspicion that the country might conduct another nuclear test. North Korea has moved forward with its missile and nuclear programs despite U.N. sanctions and international warnings.
North Korea also said last month that it was prepared to use nuclear weapons against hostile forces like the United States.
If the U.S. and other hostile forces persistently seek their reckless hostile policy towards the [Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea] and behave mischievously, the DPRK is fully ready to cope with them with nuclear weapons any time, director of the North Korean Atomic Energy Institute said in statement.

Those who suffer from anhedonia-related symptoms self-medicate themselves by living life in the most extreme manner possible, either living a sybaritic, extraordinarily self indulgent lifestyle or other extreme experience in order to coax endorphins out of their brain.
People like Kim Jong-un, a mentally deranged boy leader of woefully dysfunctional government uses his nuclear arsenal as the only way to feel alive. Anything else just won't cut it and he'll be moping around the house unless he can engage the US in a game of nuclear brinkmanship.
The article states that North Korea wants to test Obama's red line. But Obama's red line has a stealth feature that when it comes across the very situation it said it wouldn't tolerate just moves it back in the middle of the night.
Merry Minuet Lyrics
"Merry Minuet" was written by Sheldon Harnick.
They're rioting in Africa
They're starving in Spain
There's hurricanes in Florida and Texas needs rain
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls
The French hate the Germans
The Germans hate the Poles
Italians hate Yugoslavs
South Africans hate the Dutch
And I don't like anybody very much
But we can be tranquil and thankful
And proud for man's been endowed
With a mushroom shaped cloud
And we know for certain that
Some lovely day someone will set the spark off
And we will all be blown away
They're rioting in Africa
There's strife in Iran
What nature doesn't do to us will be done by our fellow man
And he could just be a 3rd generation flaming a-hole.
Well, you can’t blame the guy for what he’s doing. With bamm-bamm in office for 14 or so more months, it’s a great opportunity to get as much in as possible. The most serious repercussion will be a strongly worded protest, followed by even MORE goodie offers. How can you lose?
My own opinion is - this is a test against CHINA.
Who is more of a threat to Kim? The USA, which is 8000 miles away, or China, who sits on his border, and has contacts, agents and spies up and down his chain of command?
Okay. Get the Director of Rocket Launches, strip him naked, smother his body in honey. Then drop him off in the desert near the closes ant hill you can find. But, but, he’s your father-in-law. Okay, then, take my wife with him.
When the sanctions are lifted Iran can buy nukes from North Korea.
I clicked on the link. I thought it said Free Bacon.
They did recently offer a subscription deal called “Beacon and Bacon” whereby you’d get a 4 week supply of bacon to go with your morning delivery of the Washington Beacon.
