A couple of things to clear up here, Artie. First, we're still not sure if they have actually tested any nuclear devices yet. Reports are sketchy at best.
"On October 9, 2006, the North Korean government issued an announcement that it had successfully conducted a nuclear test for the first time. Both the United States Geological Survey and Japanese seismological authorities detected an earthquake with a preliminary estimated magnitude of 4.3 in North Korea, corroborating some aspects of the North Korean claims. On January 6, 2007, the North Korean government further confirmed that it had nuclear weapons."
As for it's nuclear reactor firing back up - it'll take years, if not decades to rebuild it.
"It was unclear how quickly Yongbyon, whose cooling tower was destroyed as part of an earlier denuclearization deal with major powers, would take to restart."
"It was also impossible to verify whether Yongbyon remained connected to North Korea's antiquated electricity grid at all."
"It was a reactor that was nearing obsolescence with a cooling tower that wasn't functioning properly when it was blown up. It could mean they've been rebuilding quite a few things," said Yoo Ho-yeol, North Korea specialist at Korea University in Seoul.

Sure M I get that.
Everything we know (or think we do) is
mostly speculation.
How could we know w/a communist country
what really goes on.

Obama isn't an idiot. He won't allow
the U.S. to be sucked into another war.
N.K. would literally have to attack us
(I believe) to get a response. Or at least
the response they are looking for.

Kim Jong Un will have to get the US into it, it is the only way to possibly get the Chinese involved.

Yes, they have tested 3 bombs, and may have up to 5 more available to use should a conflict begin. They have never tested a nuclear warhead attached to a missile though. To restart that reactor in Yongbyon will take time, about 6 months. If this crisis becomes a shooting war, that facility will be a crater within days of the first shots being fired.
Another great point...thanks.

Isn't it an odd situation when listening
to U.S. news makes me feel terrified and
coming to this (mostly crap) site I can hear
it reasoned out, using fact and logic, and
feel much better.

How much power does this kid really have do you think?
I mean is he like Bush w/a Chenney in the back ground
pulling the strings or is he making the decision to try

I watch a bit of their news last night. It's sorta
frightening. Just thinking that the ppl of N. Korea
are getting Nothing outside their own country and the
news was decidedly against the U.S.
There are ppl in this country that are from N.K. and
they confirm that they are raised to believe that the
U.S is not only evil but the very cause of all of their
problems.
It is hard call to say how much power anyone with such illusions of grandeur has accrued and or incurred. With this type of human anything is possible. As we've seen with folk like Hitler, Jim Jones, blah blah ..so on and so forth.

Thing is, our we looking at another 'youth' movement, and is it global? There may lie the danger.

Listen, I have suggested this on another thread along the way, and now am suggesting it again. Is a very interesting video, I rented it from Netflix. Is on youtube as well, but is in parts. Is called,'The Shock Doctrine'. Here is a website with a bit of a synopsis of it:

In a nutshell: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22024260

4 April 2013 Last updated at 04:29 ET Help

The US has announced it is moving an advanced missile defence system to the Pacific island of Guam as North Korea steps up its warlike rhetoric.

A statement from Pyongyang said its military had been given final approval to launch a nuclear strike.

North Korea has threatened to target the US and South Korea in recent weeks.

Its statement came amid warnings from US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel that North Korea was a "real and clear danger" to the US and its allies.

Speaking to Today presenter John Humphrys, John Everard, former UK Ambassador, explained that North Korea leaders "believe that they are the victim, they believe that they are being hounded by the United States".

He went on to speak of a "spiral of violence" between North Korea and the US and South Korea and said that war was "possible".

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 4 March 2013.

Artie - look up in the sky - what do you see? Nothing but sky, clouds, stars and...what's that? A satellite? Hmmmmm...guess what? North Korea doesn't have a satellite. They only know what America looks like from TV. On the otherhand - we know what color Kim's wife's panties are.

We know more about North Korea than North Korea does - trust me.

:o)

Btw - they're white.

Seems we are all clueless when it comes to the wee bastard:

"The risk is that a spiral could begin, leading both sides down the bloodstained path to an unintended war. Only cool heads could stop this. We do not know whether Mr Kim's is hot or cold."

I thought that I had heard that about the cooling tower too, but couldn't find anything to back it up.
I work in the power generation business - that cooling tower was destroyed years ago - not to mention, that reactor is older than Betty White.

You know how "WE" are if we don't have a good reason we just make one up.
I should differentiate "WE" - in all references above I'm specifying the federal government, and since it's no longer of the people, by the people or
for the people,'they' do not include "US".

No doubt! No matter what, one has to feel for the people in N.K.

Now...let us examine the folk here in America being on the other end of the spectrum. Therefore being to over weight to get into the military.

This world has lost it's mind. I say...Is about time they caught up with me. I tend to be a bit of a cave woman. Am waiting on a whole hell of a lot of company.~laughs~ Shame really, for I am not very fond of humans in general.

You assimilate the same feelings and thoughts as myself (which is scary in a way), but I too tend to be somewhat of a cave person; being raised in an environment of doing without without really knowing it.
As far as humans go 'i' am very skeptical,'i' didn't use to be but as you stated; "THIS WORLD
has lost it's mind.
Put your feet in any of the 'middle easterners'
shoes and tell me how you'd feel having a =bully=
push you around.
If N. korea really did do something China would be on them like *stink* on shit! And "WE" better wait for that to be the way it comes off. They're pride
is just as {big-headed} as ours.
