    North Korea may have conducted sixth nuclear test: Yonhap
    SEPTEMBER 3, 2017

    SEOUL (Reuters) - An earthquake 5.6 was recorded on Sunday in North Korea near the country’s known nuclear test site Punggye-ri, Yonhap news agency reported, citing South Korea’s meteorological agency.

    The quake appeared to have been man-made, Yonhap quoted the agency as saying, suggesting the isolated country had conducted a sixth nuclear test.

    I think we can expect some kind of action in proxy by US. Because a failure to do so will only result in higher rate of "maturation of the tech" by North Koreans (now obviously we know the proxies who are at work here - namely our neighbor and their colony to our west). Interesting.

    Maybe a militarized and assertive Japan is on the cards.

    If you remember, I had written that every time we acquire any tech to counter Pak Nuke threat, China will raise the bar. China is now doing the same with N Korea. The top most economies of the world, US, Japan & India are being bullied by China thru its proxies called Pakistan and N Korea. It is very important to find another Land border with China by dismantling N Korea and merging it with S Korea. Same needs to be done to Pakistan. Once you take out these two Proxies of China, it will suddenly find itself contained.

    Bush should have invaded North Korea instead of Iraq. Now I get the feeling it's all too late.

    A nuclearised SoKo and Japan, with THAAD and Aegis Ashore system. Chinese security in peril even if the last two happen.

    Eisenhower should have let McArthur finish the job 65 years ago.

    The US tried and it ended in a stalemate.

    USSR & China were supporting them at that time. Now its only China and Russia is also scared of Chinese population in its far east and so decided to open it to India to counter balance it. Russia will love N Korea being decimated and China being shown its place.

    If the US is looking for a military solution, then the best time is now, when China is not yet a peer adversary. The US won't get a chance again in the future.

    Tough words on Twitter from Trump ji-directed towards China

    The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.

    McArthur wanted to break the stalemate with the use of tactical nukes.
