May 28, 2009 NKorea blast likely less powerful than hoped: expert

The explosive, while larger than the first test in October 2006, was still far short of the expected yield of a crude Hiroshima-type bomb, according to Jeffrey Park, director of the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies.

“More than likely this means North Korea tried and failed to get a simple plutonium bomb to detonate correctly,” Park wrote in an article on the website of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

  1. So the PLA anti ship missiles are a threat and must be neutralised.Any impartial person will tell you the US 7 fllet is configured to attack.The Chinese missiles are for defence and have been twisted by US media and military analysts to be a threat to US security.
    Well if the US ac attack China the Chinese aint going to cry like in the opium war. They will retaliate by destroying the ac and CONUS.
    So the US cannot go on bullying China. Yes it canprevail in awar but the PLA will make sure the US will pay a very heavy price and not only that are working beaver like to develop new weapons to counter US missile shield in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
    and space.
    The US missile shield cannot intercept all PLA nm.If need be the PLA will increase the missile s by a factor of 100 or even 1000.I firmly believe the PLA must have 1000 nm vs 20000 for the US. Who dares wins.
