Quoting Kalakaua (Reply 5): US Geological Survey has not detected seismic activity.
Which brings up the possibilty that either
1. Their design tanked.
2. They are lying about the test.
Seismic monitoring is how the world new the Indians and Pakistani's had gone off the deep end a few years back and tested, and it is also why the Indians tested three weapons at once, to disguise the actual yeild.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

This is why you don't see our intelligence guys going apeshit right now. Unless there's some remote detection station that hasn't reported in yet, which I highly doubt, I'm almost positive that this is a bluff or either a smaller version of the truth.
If they actually tested a nuclear device of the size they claimed they were going to test, it would have set off detectors all over eastern Asia.
This changes the equation. Now, you take them aside, and you tell them: you tested one, we know you have others. If you use them, or even threaten to use them on Russia, China, Japan, the ROK, Taiwan, us-ANYONE, you will be annihilated.

Quoting Singapore_Air (Reply 16): If only the U.S. had more soldiers than we'd be rid of this North Korea trouble now (sentence may be too simplistic).
We have enough troops to fight a war with them. How? Because we would be fighting along side S. Korea and Japan (fighting Korea DOES fall under their realm of self-defense), and most likely other European nations. Just between Japan, the south, and ourselves we will be able to beat N. Korea.
