Building and miniaturizing nukes requires large teams of scientists, engineers, and skilled workers, as well as access to the correct materials (not just fissiles, but the high grade alloys used in processing)

These people need to be educated from a young age, receive enough incentives to make it worth their while (food would probably do it in Best Korea), and have access to necessary facilities/equipment and competent management.

Frankly I'm amazed the Norths programs gone as far as it has.

They are not empty threats. They do want a nuclear capability, and they are working hard to get it.
In the meantime, they use it as a bargaining chip to elicit concessions from the rest of the planet. They know that the US political atmosphere cultivates a desire for administrations to gain political victories by claiming to reach some sort of agreement with the DPRK regarding nuclear issues.
So the DPRK gets what it wants, (concessions without any good faith commitment to actually stop their program), the US political leaders get what they want (a political foreign policy feather in their cap) and by the time it becomes an issue again the US electorate will have moved on giving the administration the opportunity to score points again with the same cycle.

If they fix their delorean they can go back to the 1950s and rule the world.

If they have a hydrogen bomb it represents a major step forward for their capabilities. Hydrogen bombs are a lot more powerful than other nuclear weapons.

imo no.
They were probably experimenting with Hydrogen in order to make a boosted fission device and are either reporting it as fusion out of error or more likely, for propaganda.
Boosted fission basically means that they put tritium gas inside a a hollow sphere of plutonium, so that when the implosion happens, the tritium will push back and cause more of the plutonium to fissile, generating a bigger boom

The USA has lost numerous nukes, as has Russia. Most lost and never found nukes are buried in mud about 5,000ft deep or more in the Ocean, and will not be recovered due to cost. Also, incredibly unlikely anybody but the Nation that lost it could recover it.

US also nearly nuked itself in the 60's. 2 of 3 failsafes preventing the nuke from detonating failed. One did not, thus the bomb did not detonate.

Exactly. You won't have to explain yourself to anybody. Especially with a can and a good urban camo. So, could it possibly be worth it? Is it possible there's anything left other than copper?

I know this is going to sound silly, but I am limited to what I can say about design details of specific weapons, except in the most general terms. Even though the information is a Google away, I'm still prohibited from even offering guesses when it comes to design information of specific weapons.
I can speak in general terms, about a notional weapon, however. I could tell you that older implosion type weapons had devices designed to ensure the arrival of the detonation signal arrived at the explosive lenses at the proper timing, but I could not tell you what you had circled in that picture.
Even if it has been in the open for decades.

There are even topics about current nuclear weapons that have entire Wikipedia pages that I would be in trouble even for quoting the guy that mentioned it. Given some people on this site that would love to cause trouble, I'll just suggest that you Google.

Economy remains the same size. Their GDP is still expanding and is expected to continue in 2016.

Not how it works. If you were producing 100 Bl of oil p/a at $10/Bl and the price went down to $4/bbl you'd need to increase your production to 250 bl of oil p/a to bring in the same revenue.

But in the meantime the price has cratered further due to the excess oil on the market.

You know what the Saudis are shitting themselves about? Iran getting to export oil without sanctions. The Iranians don't rely on it as much as the Saudis, so they can dump the price further and they'll also get $100B in overseas assets to play with once sanctions are lifted.

The Saudis on the other hand are having to keep digging into their cash reserves in order to pay for their shit-show in Yemen, and to keep all the arrogant fuck head princes happy.

Nuclear capabilities that they'll use if KJU "mysteriously died". Asians are extremely racist. NK hates Japan, Korea, vietnam, and everyone hates them back. There is no feasible way to "replace" KJU. The only way to prevent them from using their nuke is to give them the food rations they want. It's all a scheme to feed their people.

Until we let Japan start invading people again, we are their police. It's part of their constitution though so good luck, they're just now deciding they can help in peacekeeping or something. If they have a bomb then it is our responsibility to protect Japan, even if it means toppling them. Not that anybody will and not that it wouldn't be incredibly costly and disadvantageous for everybody involved and surrounding. But if you were running it then we'd get nuked before we did anything.

china effectively had no lights back when they lit their first h-bomb.
this tech is old, gramps, it ain't some cutting edge research. Simply because it's highly potent doesn't mean it takes a lot of smarts to make it - not after the cat's out of the bag.

They are keeping it from falling apart. Food shipments, some trade in basic resources, and labor/tech transfers in the border towns.

The Chinese hate the Norks nuclear program. Pissyongyang is 200 miles from Beijing.
Nork nukes are a Paki's fault. Also credit to the Norks getting the materials needed.

We really should let those japs have a military. They're pretty loyal to us, what could possibly go wrong? But Japan should also not invade NK because nukes. The point i'm making is simple, and I dont know why it's so hard to understand
>DONT WASTE RESOURCES AND SOLDIERS ON NORTH KOREA, THEY AREN'T WORTH IT
If they wanted to use their nukes, they would have used them by now. They're more paper tiger than China. How are they going to attack anyone when 50 percent of their people are famished?
>>
>>28445814
Not saying it isn't a shitty idea to invade, I'm actually for nuking the stain off the face of the planet. China doesn't have to deal with immigrants, SK and Japan can stop worrying about retaliation.

It was the size of a fucking bus, and vaporized an island. Their device barely made a thump on the charts. If it was thermonuclear, it was a failure.

well what the fuck would they have to defend for anyways? nepotism?
>>
>>28445725
I understand the math. I was simplifying.
As long as you can produce enough more oil to make up for the price fall, your economy remains the same size.

Also, most others can't produce more as fast or as cheaply as the Saudis. So them producing more takes more market share than it drops the price.

Finally, Saudi's economy real value is in Saudi Dinars. Not in US dollars. As long as the Dinar falls as much as oil, the economy remains the same real size.

Iran is a small meaningless player in the oil market. Iran in 2016 will produce less than 12 other nations. About 1 million barrels a day, compared to Saudis 13 million.

The Iranians are funding the shitshow in Yemen and actively at war in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, and Lebanon. They are way more cash strapped than the Saudis.
>>
>>28445795
To put in perceptive Iran is about 20 years behind the North Korean nuclear program. NK has some decent technology and scientists to go as far as they have.

They weren't in 06', 09', 13'. They won't be today when the Norks have 10 nukes.

China has nothing to gain from changing the status quo.

>What would Japan have to defend against? It's not like there's a giant asian country that goes around bullying smaller countries like Taiwan and Tibet. Hmm, why even have a military pact with them? It's not like we're trying to defend them from that rhetorical Asian country!

I disagree. Most experts in June 2015 put the Iranians 6 weeks of "dashing" to a nuclear weapon.

It is the argument used by pro-Iran deal shills. Same for those who disagree.

Considering Iran's larger economy, functioning industry, and more allies, it is only 3-4 years behind the Norks.
>>
>>28445944
Why would China give a shit? NK offers nothing except maybe a distraction. Only worry is that SK would unite and have a border but if it's a wasteland then it's not a problem.

>Nuke Best Korea
>think SK won't react extremely adverse to it
You know a US ambassador got bitch slapped only a few months ago.
>turning Roof Koreans against you
>>
>>28445969
What? The argument I have always heard is that, in the absence of a deal, Iran would continue to progress. With the deal, their nuclear program can be monitored and steps can be taken to reduce their breakout capacity. If the Iranians cheat, then we are no different than before the deal. Ergo, the worst result of the deal is the best result of the previous status quo, so it is better to have the deal than not

We are defending our interests. We like being number one. China is threatening that position so we happen to align our views with our floating bases right next to East China.
That simple.

Still wondering why 99% of Worst Koreans would be against it. They know Best Korea has no intention of ever making peace. Some lose a couple family members, that's it. Checking those nice quads.

You think SK can handle 30 million refugees?
What about NK's nukes?
NK has a huge military as well.
Whose filling the vacuum?

There's a reason we invaded Iraq and not the madmen who built and tested a nuke in 2006.

>>28446015
That argument implies that China and Russia will sign off on new sanctions if Iran violates the deal.
>>
>>28446066
They won't all run to SK or the surrounding countries. If anything, the nationalism is so strong in NK that they'll rebuild. Perhaps it's possible that we could Hiroshima them into liking us, but I doubt it'll ever happen.
>>
>>28446026
Koreans, hell most asians, are fucking retarded about far extended families and bloodlines. I've seen a guy get verbally dominated just because his family name came from the line of someone that did a bit of dynastic intrigue centuries ago.

I'm being serious. China is their ally because it stops them from doing stupid shit. If they disappear then no more stupid shit, so no more need of an ally.

>>28446066
Like I said, nuke it. Nuke it all. No survivors.
>>
>>28446061
You're telling me you were defending Japan from Maoist China and not the Soviets?

Maoist China barely had a boat that could make it to Japan.

Maybe since 2013 that has been what the US has done, but until then China was not a threat.

I'm Japanese by the way.

Guess they are WAY better than "Syrian refugees."
>>
>>28446112
You mean before the 2011 sanctions?

It's not. But having a rich Iran pursuing nukes was what caused the 2011 sanctions.
Why would it be any better now? Wouldn't it be better to keep the status quo 2011-present?

The Iran deal is handing the Northern Middle-East to Iran, Russia, and China on a silver platter.
>>
>>28446096
Ok Ok Ok you're one of those guys that needs it spelled out for you. So I'm China and you're America (god help us). I just nuked Mexico because the Mexican president told me I'm a stupid, smelly gook. So you, in your infinite wisdom, would sit there and watch all the nuclear fallout and destruction happen to your own neighbor? You wouldn't even flinch? Do you even know what a nuke does, much less a modern one?

Yea, I think NK would do much, much better than Syria because Syria is a shithole ran by shit people.

Nobody in SK would care.

Not to mention the biological diversity and actual functioning civilization down there. However, if they were a hellhole like Best Korea then I'd say sure thing, just use clean nukes.

Forgot to add China's views, internet went out and I didn't proofread it.
>>
>>28446335
Horrifying, isn't it? Don't you think China'd be pissed off? They'd fire nukes in fear of them being next, even if we told them they wouldn't be.
>>28446372
The point is the Chinks want them around and if we nuke them, they'll nuke us. Thats how MAD works atleast.
>>
>>28446443
I think that the Chinks don't care. I see not a single benefit gained for China by having NK around. But I agree, nuking China would make China nuke us. Fortunately I'm suggesting we nuke NK.
>>
>>28446443
I think China would be more disappointed that land they could have claimed is unusable. China hasn't been anywhere near as invested into manipulating North Korea as the US has been with Mexico.

>>28447972
Yep, it was the Norks. Better hope you guys have a fallout shelter, California is going to turn into a nuclear wasteland soon.

The only reason China supports NK is to have not American troops close to the own boarders.

Wikileaks data show that the USA would only to be ready not to have troops in Korea and NK would be done instantly.
>>
Impressive

Truly whoever the one currently leading North Korea is, he is blessed by China, North Korea is like China's dog that tries very hard to make his master happy for food. Being in between his master and other dogs of America like South Korea and Japan, makes North Korea in a great position to protect China from American bullying.
