Not a bang, but a wimper...

Some poliblogs are reporting that intelligence analysis of North Korea's alleged detonation of an underground nuke was that it was a dud. The linked article is pretty right on about how we ought to handling this, but I also think that if you match this recent test with the missile launches earlier this year, I have think that North Korea's overall capabilities are not very good. I think they lack funds so severely that they may not be able to pull off the Big One.

For this rare instance, Jackson's geopolitical thoughts might actually be right. The fact that Kim can't launch these things or make them work only means that our biggest worry is that he is capable of creating a environmental accident that will make Chernobyl look like a walk in the park.

From what I can tell, N. Korea already resembles Chernobyl.
