What's the real truth on Korea's nuke test?

If you have a nuclear test and no one sees it and there is no radiation, is it still considered a nuke test? Kim Jong-Il wants us to believe it was so successful, there was no leakage. Well, now our government tells us that they did find some radioactive particles in air samples we took.

I have seen or read Richter scale readings varying from 3.6 to 4 to 4.2 on their "nuke test". This would equate to the equivalent of roughly 600 pounds of TNT exploding. For reference, the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima was 12,500 tons.

The take on this by a fairly reliable source is that the test was a "colossal failure," and behind the scenes, White House officials and scientists at the Pentagon are laughing themselves silly over the failure of the test, believing Kim Jong Il's scientists "screwed-up big time."

How comfortable would you be if you were one of Kim Jong-Il's scientists? You might be scheduled for a long walk on a short plank.

It's also very possible that "the North Korean plutonium stockpile is worthless" with the plutonium being too polluted, bombs can't be made from it. If that were the case, you wouldn't be able to sell it, as such, to other rogue states.
