    :cry:

    we just pulled back in port, now they're gonna send us out again!

    (if this is the real deal)

    i don't see how we can just go on with business as usual when they've just proved for all to see they've got nukes (and enough to waste one on a test)

    peace talks with the n. koreans right?
    i'm surprised they haven't tried to assasinate japan or s. korea's leadership like they did in the 80's.

    i'm sure carter is on his way to sudan now to kow-tow with the genocide government there.

    North Korea cloud 'not nuke blast'
    Sunday, September 12, 2004 Posted: 0505 GMT (1305 HKT)



    SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) -- A large cloud that appeared over North Korea in satellite images several days ago was not the result of a nuclear explosion, according to a U.S. official.

    South Korea's Yonhap news agency is reporting a huge explosion shook North Korea's northernmost province on Thursday producing a mushroom cloud over two miles (4 km) wide.

    The blast coincided with the anniversary of North Korea's founding on Sepember 9 when various military activities are staged.

    The U.S. official said the cloud could be the result of a forest fire.

    South Korea's Unification Minister Chung Dong-yong said the government was aware of the reports and is checking them.

    "I have no information about the size of the damage of the explosion," he said on Sunday, according to Yonhap.

    Chung also said he believed there was no correlation between the explosion and reports of North Korea preparing for a possible nuclear test.

    The New York Times reported on Saturday that U.S. President George W. Bush and his top advisers recently received intelligence reports that could indicate North Korea is preparing its first nuclear test, citing senior officials with access to the intelligence.

    None of North Korea's known nuclear sites are in the country's northernmost provinces.

    Yonhap reported the explosion happened in Yanggang province along the Chinese border, the site of Yongjori Missile Base -- a large facility with an underground missile firing range.

    At least 161 people were killed in an explosion at Ryongchon Railway Station in April. It took three days for Pyongyang to break its silence on the blast.
