Awesome! Norks Get H Bomb

Look at the bright side, Obama is batting 1000 on foreign policy.

North Korea claims it has successfully detonated a miniaturised hydrogen bomb. The underground test took place on Wednesday at 10am local time (1.30am GMT/Wednesday 12.30pm AEDT/Tuesday 6.30pm ET) at a known nuclear test site at Punggye-ri, in the east of the country.

Pyongyang said the test and was “self-defence against the US having numerous and humongous nuclear weapons”. In a TV announcement it also said the test went “perfectly”. If true, this would be North Korea’s fourth nuclear test, and its first using a hydrogen bomb, significantly more powerful than an atomic bomb.

There has been no independent verification of North Korea’s claims. An artificial earthquake of magnitude 5.1 was detected close to Punggye-ri. The UN organisation monitoring the world for signs of nuclear testing confirmed it had detected “an unusual event in the Korean peninsula”, but some experts have cautioned that claims of a hydrogen bomb could be exaggerated.

There's nothing he can't f*ck up!

1 Well H-bombs are distinctive in the way they are detonated.
Usually two parts-the trigger and the bomb fuel usually tritium
based. That is basically a fusion bomb. They have a distinct
signature. We will know.
My guess- one of their marginal nukes , possibly enhanced
with a tritium frosting,,,

3 ..." humongous" -- even their language is from the '50s.

4 Obama, allows NorKs to build H bomb, Iran to make A bombs yet disarms law abiding Americans.
It's plain who he trusts and who he distrusts.

5 The Richter scale says it's a 6 kiloton device. They may have used tritium to get their sloppy bomb into the non-squib range.

6 Obama has the Sadim touch. It's like the Midas touch only everything turns to shit instead of gold. Maybe he is rushing to disarm as many as possible before someone thinks it is a very long time since anyone got famous for assassinating a president.
