  • North Korea Tests a Nuclear Device

    SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) -- North Korea on Monday claimed it has performed a successful nuclear test, according to that country's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

    South Korean government officials also said North Korea performed its first nuclear test, the South's Yonhap news agency reported.

    The apparent nuclear test was conducted at 10:36 a.m. (0136 GMT) in Hwaderi near Kilju city, Yonhap reported, citing defense officials.

    "The field of scientific research in the DPRK (North Korea's official name) successfully conducted an underground nuclear test under secure conditions on October 9 ... at 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," KCNA reported.

    Late Sunday in Washington, the U.S. military told CNN it believed the report to be true, but was working to fully confirm it.

    Senior U.S. officials said they also believed the test took place.

      Anything from very little to another nation going nuclear.

      Japan could probably have nuclear weapons within very short order if they wanted to.

          I doubt Japan would get them, but I still wouldn't want to rule the possibility out. Can't some nation send some snipers to N. Korea and take of that retarded midget Kim Jong Ill?
