Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

I wonder if the claims that there hasn't been any radioactivity detected in the air and that the explosion was smaller than the reports said have any truth to them. I wonder if it's a ploy to get North Korea to test another nuke thereby forcing Russia and China into accepting stronger economic sanctions. It sounds very much like a Cold War type of tactic to me. We used to claim that Russian tests were smaller than their propaganda suggested. The truth usually was somewhere between.

And, of course, if North Korea doesn't test another one, then it's possible that the test was a fake. That suggests that the whole thing is posturing and weakens their position. Either way, it's increasingly probable that the threat from North Korea isn't a threat to us, but to South Korea and Japan primarily.

Of course, Iran has their eyes on this too.

I should probably stop writing about politics and current events, but this sort of situation is really rather fascinating to me. 8)
