North Korean mountain above nuclear bomb test site is at risk of COLLAPSING, leaking radiation across the region, China warns

US monitors measured a powerful 6.3-magnitude earthquake near the North's main testing site, felt in parts of China and Russia, with an aftershock possibly caused by a rock cave-in.

Experts in China now fear that a mountain - believed to be above the underground chambers where North Korea has staged all of its tests - is under threat of collapse.

Wang Naiyan, a former chairman of the China Nuclear Society and a researcher on China's own nuclear weapons programme, said he feared just one more test could 'take the mountain's roof off' sparking a toxic radiation drift across the region.

'We call it "taking the roof off". If the mountain collapses and the hole is exposed, it will let out many bad things,' he said, according to the South China Morning Post.

He said North Korea had a lack of suitable places for nuclear tests and that the length of time the mountain continued to stand would depend on where exactly the blasts take place.

If they were put in 'difficult and expensive' vertical tunnels, it would do less damage, he said.

But it is easier to make horizontal tunnels, increasing the risk of the mountain collapsing, Wang added.

Look at this video, such wonderful people.

I think with any country under the rule of a dictator and the military it's never the people who are the aggressors, but the government and military for allowing this to happen...

The people in the video for the most part seem fine, but some can ask if the appearance of the people were staged for the camera or is the the norm throughout North Korea or is it really as hard on the people as so many who visit there say it is?...

There was a story on CNN last night about North Korea. One of CNN's correspondents, Will Ripley, was allowed access to talk to local people as he traveled the countryside.

Secret State: A journey into the heart of North Korea

While I found it to be interesting, there were no real surprises. All of the people he spoke to were very careful and guarded in everything they said. When speaking to some young people he mentioned that he liked classic rock and asked them what kind of music they listened to. All of them said they preferred the music of their glorious leader, etc. No one would admit to liking anything western.

The story mainly talked about North Korea and the United States. I've always wondered how the South Koreans feel about all of this. What if the US decided to pull out and let the 2 Koreas settle things for themselves? Would South Korea object to this? Would war ensue?

A War with North Korea will never happen Simply Because of these statistics Nuclear arsenals | ICAN Also, The video about Trump hitting Hillary with a Golf ball was hilarious. Just like Trump Pile Driving CNN was hilarious. If you are a true Egalitarian that is.

No I mean actual war mate, didn't the Korean war just end with an armistice not an actual end to the war.

The Korean War armistice
As my understanding goes Fen that is correct, the Korean war never actually ended, it just dis a giant cease fire.

The peaceful person in me says find a diplomatic solution, but the primal bit says wipe the bastard of the face of the earth. The only problem is you can''t do that to just the mad man and his cronies. So many innocent people who are victims of his tyranny would pay. I am just glad it is not me that has to make these decisions. There is no easy solution.
 

cosmic joke

Honorable

Otto's corner report claims he wasn't tortured. His father said it looked like they rearranged his teeth with pliers and there were ten scars on his body. If they want to demonize NK then why not officially say he was tortured?
Coroner's report contradicts Otto Warmbier torture claims | Daily Mail Online
  • A coroner's report on Otto Warmbier's death appears to conflict with his family's claims that he was tortured by the North Koreans
  • In a Tuesday interview, Fred Warmbier said 'it looked like someone had taken a pair of pliers and rearranged' his son's teeth
  • However, the coroner's report says the teeth were 'natural and in good repair' when Otto died six days after being released and returned to the U.S.
  • The coroner found a collection of 10 scars on Otto's body but none were serious enough to indicate torture
  • The 22-year-old University of Virginia student was detained in North Korea in January 2016, after being accused of stealing a poster from his hotel
  • He was sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years hard labor and wasn't heard from for the next 15 months
  • He was released from the North Koreans in June, and was taken by a medical evacuation plane back to the U.S.
  • The North Koreans claim he came down with botulism shortly after his trial and fell into a coma

The whole situation with Warmbier could have been a great opportunity for propaganda. They could have claimed they're kind and benevolent and let the kid go home unharmed.
