North Korea launches its largest nuclear test

Floods in North Korea that have left hundreds dead or missing are the "worst disaster" to hit the country since World War II, state media said.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said, "We have made overture after overture to the dictator of North Korea".

The United States has subsequently sent two nuclear capable B-1 bombers flying over South Korea as a show of force.

According to Reuters, he said that the country can source up to 150kg (330 pounds) of highly enriched uranium a year, which is enough for roughly six nuclear bombs.

"Assessment by South Korean and United States intelligence is that the North is always ready for an additional nuclear test in the Punggye-ri area", he said.

He uses his body all the time - that is his quality - and he was nearly unstoppable against Swansea.

A satirical sketch comedy show on North Korean government-run TV lampooned U.S. President Obama in a freaky attempt to boast about the county's nuclear tests. "Our dear friend Kim McGuire passed away today", read a message on the page.

With the race now in a statistical tie , Clinton is reiterating how critical this final stretch of the campaign will be. He added that the people of Venezuela "are yearning to be free, they are yearning for help".

But the report trumpeted the role of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party in responding to the disaster, saying all efforts were being put into rebuilding the northeastern border region, and that the military and people had responded to government calls to join rescue efforts. It is Pyongyang's fifth atomic test and the second in eight months.

On Sept. 10, the communist country conducted its fifth nuclear test, it produced a 5.3 Richter scale tremor around the test area. "Maybe now at this moment, China is closer to North Korea than the United States".

Yet few "expert" analyses suggest that China will risk destabilizing North Korea or that further United Nations resolutions and worldwide sanctions will succeed in deterring North Korea from pursuing its nuclear weapons and missile programs. "But the North Korean leadership is willing to bear those costs and appears to be insensitive to the worldwide costs it is facing over both its nuclear and ballistic missile tests".

They say they don't have that much control over North Korea.

The statement also claimed that North Korea's "standardization" of this warhead design will allow production, "at will", of "smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear warheads of higher strike power".

General Thomas also openly acknowledging USA special operations could be called into action saying "in the event of implosion of the North Korean regime or some other trigger event, we would have the loose nuke dilemma on an industrial scale".
