Angry North Korea claims nuclear weapons test

SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea said Monday it had performed its first-ever nuclear weapons test, setting off an underground blast in defiance of international warnings and intense diplomatic activity aimed at heading off such a move.

The North Korean statement said there was no radioactive leakage from the test site.

An official at South Korea’s seismic monitoring center confirmed a magnitude-3.6 tremor felt at the time North Korea said it conducted the test was not a natural occurrence. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition his name not be used, because he was not authorized to talk about the sensitive information to the media.

Australia also said there was seismic confirmation that North Korea conducted a nuclear test.

However, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that information still needs to be collected and analyzed to determine whether North Korea truly conducted its first nuclear test.

Japan’s top government spokesman said if confirmed, the North Korean test would post a serious threat to the stability in the region and a provocation.

China, the North’s closest ally, said Beijing “resolutely opposes” the North Korean nuclear test and hopes Pyongyang will return to disarmament talks.

U.S. and South Korean officials could not immediately confirm the report.


South Korea’s Defense Ministry said the alert level of the military had been raised in response to the claimed nuclear test.

The U.N. Security Council is expected to discuss the reported North Korean test on Monday, and the United States and Japan are likely to press for a resolution imposing additional sanctions on Pyongyang.

A resolution adopted in July after a series of North Korean missile launches imposed limited sanctions on North Korea and demanded that the reclusive communist nation suspend its ballistic missile program — a demand the North immediately rejected.

The resolution bans all U.N. member states from selling material or technology for missiles or weapons of mass destruction to North Korea — and it bans all countries from receiving missiles, banned weapons or technology from Pyongyang.

‘Peace and stability’
The North said last week it would conduct a test, sparking regional concern and frantic diplomatic efforts aimed at dissuading Pyongyang from such a move. North Korea has long claimed to have nuclear weapons, but had never before performed a known test to prove its arsenal.

The North’s official Korean Central News Agency said the underground test was performed successfully.

“It marks a historic event as it greatly encouraged and pleased the ... people that have wished to have powerful self-reliant defense capability,” the KCNA statement said.

“It will contribute to defending the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the area around it.”

South Korean intelligence officials said the seismic wave had been detected in North Hamkyung province, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. It said the test was conducted at 10:36 a.m. (9:36 p.m. EDT Sunday) in Hwaderi near Kilju city on the northeast coast, citing defense officials.

North Korean scientists “successfully conducted an underground nuclear test under secure conditions,” the KCNA report said, adding this was “a stirring time when all the people of the country are making a great leap forward in the building of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation.”

The U.S. Geological Survey said it had detected no seismic activity in North Korea, although it was not clear whether a blast would be strong enough for its sensors.

On Sunday night, U.S. government officials said a wide range of agencies were looking into the report of the nuclear test, which officials were taking seriously.

South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun has convened a meeting of security advisers over the issue, Yonhap reported, and intelligence over the test has been exchanged between concerned countries.

International talks stalled
Kyodo News agency reported that the Japanese government has set up a taskforce in response to reports of the test.

The North has refused for a year to attend international talks aimed at persuading it to disarm. The country pulled out of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty in 2003 after U.S. officials accused it of a secret nuclear program, allegedly violating an earlier nuclear pact between Washington and Pyongyang.

Speculation over a possible North Korean test arose earlier this year after U.S. and Japanese reports cited suspicious activity at a suspected underground test site.

Kim Jong Il's best performance in a movie is when he plays himself in Team America World Police.

Kim Jong-Il: I Want to Be Villain in New Bond Film

Posted on Jul 8, 2006

Blofeld: swapmeetdave.com; Jong-Il: dictatorofthemonth.com
Arch Bond nemesis Ernest Blofed and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il: Separated at Birth?

By Andy Borowitz

The question “What does Kim Jong-Il really want?” was definitively answered today when the mercurial North Korean dictator offered to abandon his nuclear weapons program in exchange for the role of the villain in the new James Bond film.

In a press conference in Pyongyang, Mr. Kim said he was prepared to dismantle his entire nuclear program for the chance to play a Bond villain, calling the part “the role of a lifetime.”

“I have been preparing for this role every day of my life,” Mr. Kim said.

In Washington, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reacted to the news that Mr. Kim’s bizarre tenure as president of North Korea has been nothing but a Method actor’s preparation for a coveted role.

“The strange pronouncements, the weird haircut, the crazy glasses—it all starts to make sense,” she said.

According to Buddy Schlantz, a veteran talent agent and observer of the Hollywood scene, shifting from being an evil madman bent on world destruction to playing one in a James Bond film could be a brilliant career move for the North Korean dictator.

“Given the longevity of the Bond series, an evil madman could actually stay in power longer in those films than in real life,” Mr. Schlantz said. “Besides, on a film set, Kim Jong-Il can get something that’s almost impossible to find in North Korea—food.”

Elsewhere, doctors debated whether it was their duty to label a child obese, some arguing that it was a job better left to the child’s siblings. Before 1995, Kim was frequently accused of dishonesty, drunkenness, sexual excess of various kinds and even insanity, particularly in the South Korean press. He is also made fun of for wearing platform shoes and being a fan of James Bond. The BBC reported that Konstantin Pulikovsky, a Russian emissary who traveled with Kim Jong-il across Russia by train told reporters that Kim had live lobsters air-lifted to the train every day which he ate with silver chopsticks. He is also known to be one of the biggest clients of French vintner Hennessy as well as of Mercedes Benz. Kim is reported to have fathered thirteen children outside of marriage.

Kim Jung is Ill. I think he has a Napoleon complex.

N. Korea must be in such dire straits economically, it probably feels as if it has nothing to lose. It ups the ante for coersion, and could attempt to profit from selling this technology to rogue Nations.

Duh, where've you been last 20 years man?
THey are completely brainwashed and unfortunately have no idea what is outside North Korea! No phone calls outside, no travel, controlled media (100%). That is sad. They definitely needed their leaders taken away much more than the Iraqis...at this time. On the other hand, K Jung realized that the only way not to loose power id to opress his people more and build the nuke. Who can touch him now... We may ask ourselves -- did our foreign policy (or plan) fail again?

that is correct, what is also another sad part on our behalf is that Kim Jung told us in 2003 that he is enriching uranium to weapons grade....what did we do, nothing (no interest in that area Shh!) but when Iran does enrich uranium and they have said numerous times that it is for the sole purpose of civilian purposes, we blame them on trying to create a nuclear weapon. Inspectors have even admitted that Iran does not even have the facility to attain weapons grade uranium. But the media still feeds us with "they are trying to create nuclear weapons"

It is all dirty politics man. The sooner we realize that, the better we're off.
No Bush or Clinton give rats ass about us or the USA. If they did, we would have been where we were 20 years ago -- respected and proud to walk the streets of Asia or Europe.

I don't want to get into another mr.president-debate again, but bush really gotta go.
Clinton's days were a lot better with North korea situation.

Honestly, I don't think anybody or any country can do anything about this.
If a war happens in Korea, bye bye asia.
