Yo Do Realise This Means WAR!
This is what the US inspectors have said yesterday:
Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte said the findings came after analysis of radioactive debris detected at the site of the test. A US military aircraft collected air samples on 11 October, two days after Pyongyang made its announcement of a successful test.The apparently small size of the explosion had led to doubts over the veracity of North Korea's claim. But the short statement from Mr Negroponte's office confirmed that a nuclear explosion with a yield of "less than a kiloton" took place. This is less than a tenth of the size of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
And this is what the North Korean ambsassador has said today:
In its first official statement since the vote, North Korea said it "vehemently denounced" the resolution and called it a "product of US hostile policy" towards the country.
"The resolution cannot be construed otherwise than a declaration of a war" against the North, the statement from the foreign ministry said, echoing comments made by North Korea's ambassador to the UN on Saturday.
Comparing the US nuclear arsenal with North Korea’s…. Bring it on!
