Just in time for the Imperial President’s first State of Confusion address since re-election, the North Koreans set off another nuclear test overnight, this one more potent than ever before. They, of course, blame us for all that’s wrong in the world and the perpetual cause of their attention seeking behavior. Different this time around is the fact that China is grumpy over NK’s jackassery.
“North Korea has drawn widespread condemnation after conducting a nuclear test in defiance of international bans – a development signalled by an earthquake detected in the country and later confirmed by the regime.
The test, which took place in the north-east of the country just before noon local time, could bring North Korea a step closer to developing a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a long-range missile and possibly bringing the west coast of the US within striking distance.
The authorities in Pyongyang said scientists had set off a “miniaturised” nuclear device with a greater explosive force than those used in two previous nuclear tests, in 2006 and 2009.
“It was confirmed that the nuclear test that was carried out at a high level in a safe and perfect manner using a miniaturised and lighter nuclear device with greater explosive force than previously did not pose any negative impact on the surrounding ecological environment,” KCNA, the North’s official news agency, announced.
The agency said the test had been in response to “outrageous” US hostility that “violently” undermined the regime’s right to peacefully launch satellites – a reference to the condemnation and tighter sanctions that greeted Pyongyang’s successful rocket launch almost two months ago.”

The real question of: is there anyone that will effectively deal with the weapons of mass destruction and the proliferation coming from these idiots, North Korea and Iran, is now unanswered. The UN blusters and then cowers. China frowns. And while America use to be the answer to that question, we now have the Obama regime getting angrier over Israeli settlements – all the while weakening our own military might. It’s really remarkable.
Frankly, the way the UN, China, and the Obama regime act, one could get the impression they really don’t mind much at all if North Korea and Iran get nukes.
