It might just be that North Korea has finally gotten around to building a nuke!
Okay, now what? What are our options?
Put this guy on your blogrolls and check him out daily.
What do I think we’ll do? Dunno. If NK just tested a nuke then they probably don’t have many. That might have been their only one. But if they’re testing then they probably have material to make more, so bombing the plants that enriches the fissionables would be a waste of time.
Invade? Those guys have taken paranoia to a high art, and they’ve had more than 50 years to fortify and prepare. They’d lose, but it would’t be cheap or easy for us.
Of course, this could all be moot. The blast took place on Thursday and we haven’t heard anything since then. Could be that someone made a mistake and a reporter just ran with it without getting confirmation. Not like we haven’t seen it before.
But let’s assume that it is a nuke. Does this change anything, and what do we do about it?
