    WOW! I had no idea. I'll bet heat-seeking missiles like the AIM-9 won't track either, because it doesn't have hot metal like a jet.

    Cross Bows take care of them

    It's carrying capacity must be atrocious for what it's allegedly being purposed for.

    North Korea has 100 of old Soviet-era AN-2 biplanes . Invisible to radar because they are made of fabric and hug the earth..so well suit for Stealth Bomber Role

    Easy... 240 PJ. 7,2 on Richter scale.

    Edit: ...which is nowhere near 'massive'.

    Take a look here then check again how the scale is formed in the first place - the link is in post 464.

In comparison with WWII atomic bomb 'Little Boy' which was 67 TJ, this measure of force is a joke. If you wanted to further convert the value of 2 TJ to explosive force in kilotons, it would be a measly .479 Kt.
    Then how you calculate the Tsar bomb test.. massive EQ in history

    Conclusion: the nuclear test was a failure.

    The 4.2 is a given but the 25kt is the thing you're dragging out of your ass. You took the seismic data without any understanding and plug it into the straight formula to come up with the 25kt. EVERYBODY else has been saying sub 10kt. BTW, this is in no way a thermonuke. A thermonuke is a two stage weapon and the seismic data correspond to a single stage weapon.

    Sir ..this is the link where I get 4.2 mag of EQ in North Korea

    http://quakes.globalincidentmap.com/

    My claim of 4.2 mag Artificial EQ ..shown here ..the USGS reports 5.1 Mag in the coordination of 41.308 N, 129.076 E

If Japan attacks independently, then perhaps a few stealthy tomahawks from a Japanese SSN or, considerably less stealthy; airstrikes from an "Aviation Ship Battle Group"?
    Or the SKs could thank god that the Norks was stupid enough to give them first warning by attacking Japan first, and use warning to initiate suppression of NK artillery on the DMZ.

    I mean, it seems to me that once the NK starts any sort of large attack, SK and the US will have to assume a full scale war is imminent. If the North's first move is somehow not directed across the DMZ, then the best move for SK and US forces is probably to seize the initiative by attacking en mass across the DMZ immediately and not stopping until they hit the Yalu or meet up with Chinese forces.

It seems a little like the mideast where Iraq attacked Israel to try to draw them into the conflict in the belief it would break up the coalition.

    When I look at Kim Jr, i dont see a guy spoiling for a fight. I am inclined to believe that all of this saber rattling and bellicosity is purely for domestic consumption. I think in his calculation, what China or SK or the US make of his antics is a distant consideration. His over-riding concern has to be shoring up his support at home. It matters not one jot if the rest of the world thinks him a strutting fool, so long as the home audience approves. Of course this is all speculation on my part. Thats the problem with cloistered dictator nutcase types. You can never be certain weather they believe their own bullshit or are posturing for the crowd.
