‘Crept all the experts say it wasn’t a hydrogen, only about 6 kiloton. Another panic button for the righties here who just want to blow someone, or the world, up.
That pathetic little turd should be beaten to a pulpby the people of that sorry country.
Even if he DID build a hydrogen bomb, first time he uses it, we park a coupld Ohio class boomers off his coast, and turn N. Korea into a glass sheet. Problem solved. Not worth being worried over.
Keep mocking them. Next thing you know, the White House will say they’re only the JV team, and we’ve got them contained.
Seoul, the capital of S. Korea, is the second largest city in the world with 25 million people and lies just 35 miles from the border with N. Korea. N. Korea could flatten Seoul just with its conventional artillery. Belittling the bomb test misses the larger point. N. Korea is threatening the existence of S. Korea. Don’t change the subject.
Not very impressive. His father once shot a 38 under par 34 on the newly opened 18-hole Dyongyang golf course. The round included 11 aces and was verified by 17 security guards. Now that’s impressive!
The actual name for the “bom” is “Hideyourgin”!
Or, in the real world, this is what we think.
He’s as conceited as Vader – thinking he can destroy the whole world while taken down by small thermal exhaust port. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they’re not much bigger than two meters
Comixbomix: the point is the size meant it was NOT a “hydrogen” fusion bomb. The other point is that Kim is also ticking off China, his only ally, anywhere on the planet.
Also, that Kim can attack Seoul with his conventional artillery is a fact, a nuclear attack on S. Korea would also destroy Kim and his people, and that S. Korea even without us has a significant retaliation capability, means dangerous bluster is just that. The REAL danger is that it gives American chickenhawks more rational to go stupid on the international stage.
Did anyone stop to think that when Kim stages those huge parades with all his troops and weapons in one spot at one time, an attack with conventional weapons could easily take out his army, AND all his missiles and weapons in 30 seconds??
It’s Albania that scares me. Or Alabama.
@dtroutma-Wow!! Common sense. I didn’t think that even existed anymore.
I really don’t get North Korea’s approach to all of this anyway. I’ve been keeping tabs on their relations with the rest of the world lately, and it’s been really back and forth. One day they’re all “we’re not a threat, we don’t mean you any harm” and then the next they’re all “we’ll totally bomb you off the face of the earth” in attitude.Either way, they’re a threat, but really not the biggest one out there at the moment. Their military equipment is seriously outclassed and out of date by everybody else, they really wouldn’t stand much of a chance in prolonged conflict and I think they know it (hence all the bravado), and this whole H-bomb debacle has demonstrated that not many really are THAT worried about them going on the offensive.Even if they DO, I’d be more worried about the safety of S Korea and other countries in the immediate area of N Korea than America’s safety, which I think has slightly bigger fish to fry with all that’s going on in both the Middle East and our own borders.
