North Korea tests nuclear bomb
North Korea tests a nuclear weapon, the US does nothing. Someone mentions in a pentagon corridor that Iraq might have WMD, the US invades.
What’s the difference?
The skeptic says: Iraq has oil
The realist says: Chinese soldiers will kill US soldiers (again)
The optimist says: The US is a peaceful nation
North Korea said it would test a small nuclear bomb after the UN added further sanctions and it did just that this morning (3am GMT).
The situation so far…
Dec-11 Kim Jong-un becomes the leader of DPRK
Dec-11 EU adds sanction against DPRK
Dec-12 DPRK successfully launches a space rocket carrying a satellite
Jan-13 US/UN increases sanctions against DPRK
Jan-13 ROK successfully launches a space rocket carrying a satellite
Feb-13 DPRK successfully carries out 3rd nuclear test
Following this mornings nuclear test the UN’s Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said it was a “clear and grave violation” of UN resolutions and that it was “deeply destabilising”.
The UN will meet at 2pm (GMT) to decide what action should be taken.
