Hahaha - WAR WAR WAR!

Postby kwirl » Sun Sep 12, 2004 9:27 am

First, the facts as stated:

South Korea's Yonhap news agency is reporting a huge explosion shook North Korea's northernmost province on Thursday producing a mushroom cloud over two miles (4 km) wide.

The blast coincided with the anniversary of North Korea's founding on Sepember 9 when various military activities are staged.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that U.S. President George W. Bush and his top advisers recently received intelligence reports that could indicate North Korea is preparing its first nuclear test, citing senior officials with access to the intelligence.

Yonhap reported the explosion happened in Yanggang province along the Chinese border, the site of Yongjori Missile Base -- a large facility with an underground missile firing range.

According to data gathered by Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), Yongjori is a suspected site for North Korea's uranium enrichment program.


These facts lead US intelligence to the following conclusion:

The U.S. official said the cloud could be the result of a forest fire.




Yes, a 2 mile wide mushroom cloud at a missile testing site near a nuclear development program is a forest fire.

Thank god we have Bush's intelligence people keeping us informed and safe.

yeah but how stupid do they look for lying to us if it can be independently confirmed elsewere. either they lied, or they didn't know, which is worse. i think if this was any kind of intentional incident then they come out looking stupid. we are all sick of intelligence failures, they are getting to be as cliched as wardrobe malfunctions.

You never know, maybe these were uranium-rich woods...and if there was a forest nearby, then you can bet that there WAS a forest fire.

It is most likely not a neuclear explosion.

Neuclear explosions does not generate mushroom clouds unless they are done on the surface.

A neuclear detonation on the surface would have been discovered.

I didn't hear CIA say forest fire, but they have pointed to various things.

So what... you didn't see North Korea as the next place on the U.S.'s hit list? Oh come on now, don't be coy.


I need to move to Canada. Get a job working for Bioware and help produce artwork for the next Baldur's Gate or something. :P

Hey Chandigar, wanna join me?

Watched CNN this morning, saw that one of the people they interviewed
(some official, no idea what capacity he was acting in) mentioned that
they have already been training for a simultaneous naval blockade of
north korea and iran. Or something of that nature. Seems they think
the two are plotting against the US and trading nuclear arms or
something. Iraq appears to be just the tip of the iceberg. If we go after
one country about WMD and terrorism, seems we're going to have to
keep it going just to save face.
