Report: N Korea Conducts Nuke Test

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061009/...koreas_nuclear

Quote:
SEOUL, South Korea - South Korean government officials said North Korea performed its first-ever nuclear weapons test Monday, the South's Yonhap news agency reported.


South Korean officials could not immediately confirm the report.

South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun convened an urgent meeting of security advisers over the issue, Yonhap reported.

The North said last week it would conduct a nuclear test as part of its deterrent against a possible U.S. invasion.

Should be a rather interesting few days ahead, no?

North Korea saying they've done it. South Korea saying they believe they have. US Military saying they're not so sure....

according to CNN, the US Geological Survey reports no unusual activity in the Northern Pacific.

The seismic waves for a nuclear test are distinct from an earthquake.

If this is true I hope the UN actually does something for once.

What can they possibly do? The country is already isolated to the extreme and in striving for self-reliance managed to kill off it's own citizens. There is nothing that the international community can do except leave them alone and make sure that the technology isn't sold to those who will use it (thankfully communists care about this life).

This is true, I agree, but with the election so close in the US, they'll have to do something to satisfy the hysteria that is surely coming.
