1. Was it a Russian bomb, or a Chinese bomb?

Or maybe it was no bomb at all. Maybe they were pumping nuclear waste into the deep earth like your friendly neighborhood Oklahoma frackers.

The last thing Russia, China, and South Korea want is a destabilized North Korea. Millions of starving and severely disoriented refugees flooding across the border is a bad day in international relations. You can't shoot them.

Years ago I was joking here that maybe someone should give North Korea a bomb just to shut them up, make them wear the big boy pants.

Now I'm a little worried someone else with an actual bomb agreed.

Possibly we are witnessing great brilliance in foreign policy. If a big boy hydrogen bomb destroyed all of North Korea's bomb testing tunnels and a larger portion of their testing technology, then maybe it was worth it.
