#2 Milyuhns + Dilyuhns + ... ...

We'll see in March 2013 or ASAP after, iff no progress still in P5+1 talks + Iran still refusing to put its NucProg under UNIAEA supervision.

FYI TOPIX > AT PENTAGON, "PIVOT TO ASIA" BECOMES "SHIFT TO AFRICA".

Read, NOT IRAN???

versus

* TOPIX, WORLD NEWS, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > IRAN AYATOLLAH [NOT Khamenei]: I WILL [peacefully]RETURN LANDS OF AZERBAIJAN, ARMENIA, + TAIJIKISTAN, back to Iran.

* RIAN > RUSSIAN MILITARY CHIEF [CoGS Gen. Valery Gerasimov] PREDICTS RESOURCE WARS SOON [circa Year 2030], as over ...

> Fuel + Energy Resources.
> Markets.
> "Living Space".

Besides also Food + Water.

Lest we fergit, 1990's NET > CHINA'S DEMAND FOR 1/2 OF CONUS-NORAM FOR "LIVING SPACE" DUE TO EXCESSIVE POPULATION; + SINO-RUSSIAN "WAR AGZ THE USA IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE BUT DESIRED" STARTING IN 2018 [IIRC Russia = 2017-2022, China = more flexible, EARLIER].

#3 Why shouldn't they have a ringside seat, it was probably their bomb?

#4 I love it personally. No doubt AlanC is right: it was their bomb, and the Norks STILL extracted cash from them.

For being all full of army-first juche, the Norks are pretty good robber-baron capitalists...

#6 Next time the ringside seats should be a LOT closer - want them to be sure to have a good view of the reaction.

#7 ION DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND > NORTH KOREA THREATENS TO CONDUCT FOLLOW-UP NUCLEAR TEST + [finally]"DESTROY" SOUTH KOREA.

And NOKOR did so while at the UN talks.

* RELATED DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > SOUTH KOREA FACES "FINAL DESTRUCTION" | NORTH KOREA WARNS SOUTH KOREA OF "FINAL DESTRUCTION".

versus

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > [Information Clearing House = LONG] WHY NORTH KOREA NEEDS NUCLEAR WEAPONS?

* TOPIX > [Times of Oman] NORTH KOREA COLLAPSE MAY NOT BE DRASTIC FOR CHINA.

ARTIC = DPRK 3rd Nuclear Test a "GAME-CHANGER" for both the US + China.

* RUSSIA TODAY > NORTH KOREA SEEKING MEMBERSHIP IN NUCLEAR CLUB: EXPERT. Alexander Zhebin of the Korean Studies Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

ARTIC = NORTH KOREA may be seeking INDIA-STYLE sttaus widin the Nuclear Club, where NOKOR = India is allowed to dev its own NucWeaps + externally purchase NucTechs + NucMats, etc. from around the World WHILE ALSO NOT BEING FORMALLY VIEWED BY THE NUCLEAR CLUB AS A NUCLEAR WEAPONS STATE.

IRAN???

CAN DEV NUCWEAPS WHILE NOT OFFICIALLY BEING SEENS AS A NUCLEAR WEAPONS STATE BY THE CLUB - OOOOOOOOOO, you just know Iran's Mullahs will be po'ed iff the DPRK can pull it off but Iran can't.
