BREAKING: North Korea Reportedly Has Atomic Bomb
North Korea is claiming they have developed a hydrogen bomb. I have long said the NoKos are a proxy for China. Credible sources are now saying their claims are true. I personally have no idea, but I suspect if they were true, they’d use it, which they may still well do. North Korea is like the little boy who cried wolf, except they are the wolf and one of these days they will actually go too far. But only when they have the full backing of the New Axis of Evil to move forward. That would be China, Russia and Iran. You can’t believe either side here… not our leaders who poo poo the NoKos and not the Hermit Kingdom who promises death to the West every few months. There’s always someone out there who wants to kill us. It’s almost routine in its banality.

North Korea carried out tests to set off nuclear devices in 2006, 2009 and 2013, for which it has been subject to United Nations sanctions banning trade and financing activities that aid its weapons program.
Other experts and neighbors also reacted to the North Korean claims with caution.
China’s government had seen the report but offered no comment on whether or not it was credible.
“The situation on the Korean peninsula is very
