Well now... that ain't healthy

At this point, most of you have probably heard about the explosion in North Korea. A mushroom cloud 3.5-4km in diameter, leaving a crater that sattellites noticed. Now, this is obviously nuclear- but Powell says it wasn't a nuclear test, which I buy. N. Korea doesn't have the space for an open-air bomb test- but its quite likely an accident, or even more likely- sabotage by US agents.

This isn't tinfoil hat thinking- this is giving more credit than our C-in-C probably deserves, but think about it- N. Korea has been incredibly difficult in terms of negotiations over nukes. Since they are either _near_ or _have_ nuclear capacity (they claim they _have_ it), open war, like in Iraq, would be suicide- they might not have the missle capacity to reach the US, but they can reach our allies and our fleets at sea. It's not a healthy thing to go to war against nuclear powers. So, instead, you use that nuclear power against them. Get an agent in, buy someone on the inside, something- arrange an "accident" that wipes out a large portion of their nuclear capacity... sounds bright to me..
