North Korea Has Tested A Nuclear Device

I just heard over the radio that it seems North Korea has successfully tested a nuclear device. I haven't found any articles online, but I'm sure you'll see them popping up soon. South Korea and Japan are in a state of near panic. What do you think this means for global stability?

Oh noes!!!!

Where's Reagan when we need him? "My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes." Change Russia to NK and we're good to go.

Wait... you mean NK actually has the intelligence and resources to successfully test this? Seems after North Korean soldiers crossed into SK, nothing would follow, right?

I don't undertand the question.


I believe this will likely force Japan to develop its own nuclear arsenal. In addition, unless severe punitive action is taken against North Korea, I think this will embolden Iran in continuing with its own nuclear weapons program.

I think America should just nuke NK first before they have the ability to strike back.

You mean this is more important than the story about Instant Messages between a Republican congressman and a page?

I have a solution to this. We send in Navy SEALS or Army Delta or some people like that. They don't destroy North Korea's nukes or even disable them. Instead, the sabotage the nukes so that when North Korea tries to launch nuclear missles, they automatically turn around and retarget the source that launched them. Then, the next time NK tests a weapon or tries to launch a missle, they end up blowing themselves up (not knowing that their weapons were sabotaged). I'd sit back drinking beer and eating popcorn and get a six foot erection watching that. Then, just to spite them, we have the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission send a letter to the North Korean government reminding them that nuclear weapons can be dangerous and that they really ought to be more careful.
