North Korea claims to have made a successful test of a small scale hydrogen bomb, alarming just about everyone else, even their allies in China. An earth tremor measuring 5.1 Richter was registered as coming from near a known testing site by U.S. geological stations.
Best N. Korea negotiation tactic: 'we just detonated a hydrogen bomb, give us stuff or we will threaten nuclear war on South Korea, Japan, the United States and Britain, and Russia.'
Everyone else: 'North Korea, sit down, the adults are talking.'
N. Korea gores and sulks, throwing a minor tantrum occasionally.
More seriously, they set off something
, but what I am hearing is the governments don't think it was an H-bomb. It's likely another nuke, just not necessarily the big one the Norks are saying it is.
