>N. Korea announces that it has conducted H-bomb test
Buddy why don't you go to /news/ and read up a little bit
North Korea having a bomb is terrifying. Not because I think they would use it, but because I think they might sell it.
So yes /happening/
This. I'm just getting tired of NK tbqh. Every year it's the same 1 or 2 messages basically saying
>us norkies test big weapon. North Korea stronk! we're super serious guyz
Which untill 2011 or so also lined up (once per year) with them quietly asking the US/SK for food support because they can't realistically maintain their own population. I'm actually suprised the entire state hasn't died out of famine without food support. Pathetic country.
Only possible danger is in providing terrorists with WMD's but if they did Putin would get pissed and they really don't want to trigger their biggest ally.
finally anon comes through on decent sauce
>Bruce Bennett, an analyst with the Rand Corporation, was among those casting doubts on Pyongyang's test: "The bang they should have gotten would have been 10 times greater than what they're claiming.
>The data "doesn't support suggestions that the bomb was a hydrogen bomb", Chinese military expert Du Wenlong told state broadcaster CCTV.
translation: their A bomb is getting better but it ain't an H bomb
The blast could've been caused by conventional explosives, albeit quite a lot. We won't know until we get some evidence of radiation. Even then, I'm not sure such radioactive isotopes aren't fakable. In the meantime, I'm sure the media will continue to sensationalize it. Either way, N. Korea isn't gonna do anything stupid so does it even matter?
We often feel bad when we see pictures of starvin kids thats why many companies exploit that feeling to make huge profits, all you need is shocking imagery and a very clearly communicated socially important mission, too bad most of the money they gather ain't going to place in need just to a small selected few and when it does the people they help get dependent so its the old "don't feed the bears" rule but with people instead.
I think the correct thing is to either let nature follow its course or share education only, teach them to fish for themselves instead of fishing for them.
>I'm actually suprised the entire state hasn't died out of famine without food support.
The countries giving their food support aren't willing to starve millions of innocent civilians to punish the government.
