North Korea claims successful test of nuclear warhead
By Katie Hunt, K.J. Kwon and Jason Hanna, CNN
Updated 2:09 PM ET, Fri September 9, 2016

(CNN) — North Korea said it has hit the button on its fifth and potentially most powerful nuclear test Friday morning, claiming to have successfully detonated a nuclear warhead that could be mounted on ballistic rockets.

State media said the test would enable North Korea to produce "a variety of smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear warheads of higher strike power."

"It's hard for us to verify their claim. My deep fear is that they will launch a live nuclear weapon on one of their missiles, but that would be extremely dangerous as that could trigger a war," said Melissa Hanham, a senior research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies

North Korea claims success in fifth nuclear test
9 September 2016

North Korea says it has successfully carried out its fifth nuclear test, in continued defiance of UN resolutions.

A 5.3 magnitude tremor had earlier been detected near its nuclear test site.
,,..
 China's foreign ministry said Beijing was resolutely opposed to the test and urged North Korea to avoid further action that would worsen the situation.
...

Estimates of the explosive yield of the latest blast have varied. South Korea's military said it was about 10 kilotonnes, enough to make it the North's "strongest nuclear test ever". Other experts say initial indications suggest 20 kilotonnes or more.

...

Ms Park, who is cutting short an overseas visit, said the test was a "grave challenge" to the international community that would "only earn more sanctions and isolation" for North Korea.

"Such provocation will further accelerate its path to self-destruction," she said.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his country "absolutely cannot condone" any such test and would "protest adamantly" to Pyongyang.

"North Korea's nuclear development is becoming a graver threat to Japan's safety and severely undermines the peace and safety of the region and the international community," he said.

The White House said President Barack Obama had spoken to both Ms Park and Mr Abe after the latest test.

A statement from press secretary Josh Earnest said Mr Obama had "reiterated the unbreakable US commitment to the security of our allies in Asia and around the world".

5.3 magnitude quake detected at N.Korea nuke testing zone

Suspected nuclear test takes place on DPRK Foundation Day

Chad O'Carroll 
September 9th, 2016

A 5.3 magnitude seismic event, likely a nuclear test, has been detected approximately 10km from North Korea’s nuclear test site.

The event was recorded as taking place at a depth of zero kilometers by USGS and took place at 9.30AM Korean time,  on the DPRK’s National Foundation Day, a public holiday.

“We detected a 5.0 magnitude man-made earthquake near North’s Punggye-ri … As a result of the investigation, we judge that the North conducted a nuclear test. But we are still investigating the material of nuclear test and success or failure. The yield of the test is 10 kilotons,” South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense said.

South Korean Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn called for an emergency session of the National Security Council to discuss the probable test, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported.

USGS classified the event as a possible explosion, but has not yet verified whether it the cause was a nuclear detonation.

OK, this is the tune they are singing...........But there is so much more going on, kinda like a spider web being completed. The space x rocket was sold to the chinese and just happened to blow up in Florida, suspiciously some say....Not long after Oby visited China , he was not received well to say the least, no red carpet no big shot stairway, he exited the rear end of air force one, no big dog pols were waiting to greet him. Kim is backed by China? and if I was to be cynical, NK is a vasal of China and strait up the N.K.'s are totaly controlled.
But there is so much more going on, kinda like a spider web being completed. As mentioned The space x rocket was sold to the chinese and just happened to suspiciously blown up in Florida..

Kim is backed by China? and if I was to be cynical, NK is a vasal of China and strait up the N.K.'s are totaly controlled. Kim's about 30 or so years of age, please tell me he is capaeable of pulling all the strings, my opinion its -unlikely.
 There is so much going on,BUT the pres race is taking up the big dog MSM news with the exception of internet....My take is simple, 911 was Bush's pandora box , the FF-key, compared to what is on the elites table it was simply lighting the fuze, the begginning of the elites last phases of the end game.
 It amazes me the MSM constantly reminds us (sadly) of USA troopers killed but as if about 1/2 million M.E civy's don't matter...All lives matter, had we stayed out of the middle east we would be doing fine....We have been lied to for so long by the elite CHOIR, it is scudugery at its finest.
 What options are available to return to global sanity, my take-expose & jail ever rat pol and their elite masters for 911, Iraq, etc...
The problem is most folks don't have the time to discover the truth, busy beavers simply surviving, 2 jobs and a housefull of mouths to feed.
Some that is, others don't have a clue,BRAINDEAD they trust the MSM owned faces.
  Americans didn't commit these inhumane invasions, their leaders and crew did, but guess who will be paying for their silence & willfull ignorence.
I love America, I despise the regimes and their backers...Americans are opening an eye to the truth, time to admit we have been blued, screwed and  tatooed, the young generation will not be pleased what this generation left for them.....Upcoming 20 trillion in debt, the largests on this planet along with many an enemy, the leftover survivors from regimes invasions are not fond of us.

With each test, N. Korea inches closer to being able to send a nuclear-tipped missile to the U.S.

By Anna Fifield
September 9  

TOKYO — North Korea has taken a key step toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the mainland United States, analysts said Friday after Kim Jong Un ordered yet another nuclear test.

The test, which Pyongyang said was a “nuclear warhead explosion,” appeared to be North Korea’s biggest yet.

“It’s a clear indication of progress towards developing a miniaturized nuclear warhead for North Korea’s ballistic missiles,” said Alison Evans, a North Korea analyst at IHS Markit, a consultancy.

“We estimate that North Korea has an inventory of 15 or 20 nuclear weapons and that they could be put on a truck or a short-range missile.
But what North Korea is aiming for is to put them on an intercontinental ballistic missile,” she said.
...

Since early 2014, Pyongyang has also noticeably stepped up its missile testing, launching a variety of vehicles, including some long-range missiles. Last month, it successfully launched a ballistic missile from a submarine.

On Monday, North Korea launched three extended-range Scud missiles in quick succession, apparently to try to outsmart U.S. and Japanese missile-defense systems in the region.

Then, on Friday, it said it had “standardized” nuclear warheads so that it could produce “a variety of smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear warheads of higher strike power.”
...

Twenty years ago, the idea of North Korea being able to deliver a nuclear warhead to the U.S. seemed far-fetched,” said Sharon Squassoni, director of the proliferation prevention program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “They’re not there yet, but with each round of tests, they inch a little bit closer.”
...

As North Korea has made advances in its nuclear weapons technology, a small but growing number of prominent politicians and academics have been openly advocating for South Korea to have nuclear weapons, too.

Bill Clinton on Virtues of North Korean Nuclear Deal - History Repeats Itself

Trump blames Hillary Clinton for North Korean nuke test
... ::)
By POLITICO Staff
09/09/16 10:03 AM EDT

Donald Trump's campaign is blaming Hillary Clinton for North Korea's latest provocation, a nuclear weapons test that is raising new doubts about President Barack Obama's handling of the rogue Asian regime.

The test, which came on the 68th anniversary of North Korea's founding, “is yet one more example of Hillary Clinton's catastrophic failures as secretary of state," Trump communications aide Jason Miller said in a statement. "Clinton promised to work to end North Korea’s nuclear program as secretary of state, yet the program has only grown in strength and sophistication."

,...

"We have a man who is, I mean, he's took over — 25 years old, I guess, or around that — and now it looks like he's getting more and more hostile," he said of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "And what I would do very simply is say, 'China, this is your baby. This is your problem. You solve the problem.' China can solve that problem."

Trump has described Kim as a "total nutjob" and a "madman," but he has also marveled at the North Korean autocrat's "amazing" ability to hold on to power.

"If you look at North Korea — this guy, he’s like a maniac, OK?" Trump said in January. "And you have to give him credit. How many young guys — he was like 26 or 25 when his father died — take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden — you know, it’s pretty amazing when you think of it. How does he do that? Even though it is a culture and it’s a cultural thing, he goes in, he takes over, and he’s the boss. It’s incredible. He wiped out the uncle. He wiped out this one, that one. I mean, this guy doesn’t play games. And we can’t play games with him. Because he really does have missiles. And he really does have nukes."

You can thank Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton for North Korea’s nukes
By Post Editorial Board
January 6, 2016

...
Back in 1994, President Clinton prepared to confront North Korea over CIA reports it had built nuclear warheads and its subsequent threats to engulf Japan and South Korea in “a sea of fire.”

Enter self-appointed peacemaker Carter: The ex-prez scurried off to Pyongyang and negotiated a sellout deal that gave North Korea two new reactors and $5 billion in aid in return for a promise to quit seeking nukes.

Clinton embraced this appeasement as achieving “an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula” — with compliance verified by international inspectors. Carter wound up winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his dubious efforts.

But in 2002, the North Koreans ’fessed up: They’d begun violating the accord on Day One. Four years later, Pyongyang detonated its first nuke.

The secretive state detonated a nuclear bomb “twice of the size of Hiroshima” last week and announced it could produce more warheads “any time we desire”.

In response South Korean president Park Geun-hye vowed it would annihilate the state the "very second the North fires even one nuke at us".

She has also pledged to continue the construction of a nuclear shield, which it is hoped would shoot down missiles before they reached the South.

...  South Korean military forces warned they will destroy the North’s capital with "ballistic missiles and high-explosives" if they detected any sign of a nuclear attack.

An expert has said Kim Jong-un has expanded his uranium enrichment facilities, which combined with stockpiled plutonium could create enough material for 20 nuclear weapons.

Last week's test, held in underground tunnels at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, was the second this year.

Double-chinned dictator Kim Jong-un has ignored UN sanctions for years and experts have consistently said it is impossible to know exactly what nuclear capabilities North Korea has.

North Korea's 'game changing' new missile is more stable, more efficient -and harder to detect 
   Julian Ryall, Tokyo

The new type of intermediate-range ballistic missile launched by North Korea on Sunday is a "game changer",
according to analysts, because it uses a solid fuel engine that makes the weapon more stable and reduces the time required to fuel a missile before launch.

The Pukguksong-2 is also road-mobile on tractor-erector-launcher units, analysts point out, all of which means that the weapon is more difficult to detect and neutralise before it is launched.

"The liquid fuel engines that North Korea uses in all its medium- and long-range missiles are dangerous because the fuel is so corrosive and volatile", said Lance Gatling, a defence analyst and president of Tokyo-based Nexial Research Inc.

Kims are descended from the Great Huns, the ancestors of the Genghis Khan, Atilla the Hun and Timur. Also used to be known as Xiongnu by the Chinese and spoke Altaic language.

Outrage as China lays claim to Genghis Khan
By Graeme Baker

He swept all before him and subjugated much of the known world. But now, almost 800 years after his death, Genghis Kahn is embroiled in another war as China attempts to adopt the Mongol king as its own national hero.

In stark contrast to Mao Zedong, who insisted Genghis was only fit to fire arrows at birds, communist officials and historians now say he represents the essence of new China – a unifying force for a strident land of many ethnic minorities.

"We define him as a great man of the Chinese people, a hero of the Mongolian nationality, and a giant in world history," said Guo Wurong, the manager of the new Genghis Khan "mausoleum" in China's Inner Mongolia province.

"Genghis Khan was certainly Chinese," he added.


The ''mausoleum" was built on a spot the Mongol leader was said to have passed on his way to his final war in 1227, and holds artefacts including his bow and saddle.

Aides warned Trump not to attack North Korea's leader personally before his fiery U.N. address

...

A detailed CIA psychological profile of Kim, who is in his early 30s and took power in late 2011, assesses that Kim has a massive ego and reacts harshly and sometimes lethally to insults and perceived slights.

It also says that the dynastic leader — Kim is the grandson of the communist country’s founder, Kim Il Sung, and son of its next leader, Kim Jong Il — views himself as inseparable from the North Korean state.

As predicted, Kim took Trump’s jibes personally and especially chafed at the fact that Trump mocked him in front of 200 presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and diplomats at the U.N.

Kim volleyed insults back at Trump in an unprecedented personal statement Thursday, calling Trump “a mentally deranged U.S. dotard” and a “gangster” who had to be tamed “with fire.”
...


Matthew Kroenig, a political scientist at Georgetown University and expert on nuclear deterrence, said Trump’s threat this week to “totally destroy” North Korea comes out of the U.S. playbook for preventing a nuclear attack.

“The point is to deter a North Korean attack, and the art of deterrence hasn’t changed,” he said in a phone interview Friday. “It is to convince your adversary that the benefit of committing an attack would be outweighed by the costs.”

“That’s what Trump was making clear — it is not in Kim Jong Un’s interest to attack the U.S.,” Kroenig said.

Can US military shoot down a North Korean missile?
Katherine Lam

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has already conducted 15 missile tests this year, the latest on Friday, without a single attempt by the United States to shoot down one of the strongman’s rockets – and some experts say that’s because the American military isn’t capable of doing so.

When North Korea launched its KN-17 intermediate-range ballistic missile Friday, the rocket flew 480 miles over the Japanese island of Hokkaido, making it unreachable by Japanese or U.S. interceptors, a Defense One report stated. U.S. missile defense – the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense system and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system – can’t reach a missile launched at that height without preparation.

“U.S. missile defense against North Korea are not postured to shoot down North Korean missile tests,” Kingston Reif, director of Disarmament and Threat Reduction policy at the Arms Control Association, told Fox News on Monday. “Shooting down North Korean missiles that fall within the defended areas of these systems, such as the Japanese and U.S. homelands, would be challenging enough.”

During a test, the missile needs to be intercepted in “a matter of minutes” after it is launched, Reif said. Thomas Karako, senior fellow and director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, also previously told Fox News that shooting down a missile is “a game of minutes” and the initial missile detection “would be really in terms of seconds.” On top of that, North Korea is developing missiles that would evade U.S. and allied missile defense systems, Reif said.

“The only system designed to defend the U.S. homeland, known as the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system, has suffered from numerous technical and engineering problems, and testing in controlled conditions has not demonstrated that it can provide a reliable defense against even a small number of unsophisticated ICBMs,” he said.

the real problem with all of this is that whatever ends up happening there is virtually no way to truly eradicate North Korea short of a full nuclear retaliation, and that just won't happen as the fallout, both particulate and political, would be astronomical...and that leaves some sort of conventional war which history has proven to be a loosing game UNLESS the leader is capable of being a Genghis Khan (and by that I mean capable of declaring a true war and simply killing every single living thing in sight), and that certainly won't go over well in international politics...

... I am afraid that what you say is exactly true. It
seems DJT is trying the better option now ... to starve them
out and cut off their economy from the outside world. It is
BIG that the Chinese SEEM at least for now to be on board.
One would hope that we are working on a method to take
KJU out ... but not an easy thing to do, either.
