Nightmare comes true: North Korea lets off a nuke

Nagasaki bombWhat everyone feared has come true: Communist North Korea has nuclear weapons. The North Koreans tested a bomb today according to the BBC, in the northern part of the country.

This will rattle the Japanese and of course, the South Koreans. Both countries stock markets will likely take a nose dive; in fact, it looks like the South Korean one did already. The Japanese yen also slid in trading.

Kim Jong-il armed with nuclear weapons is bad news for the whole of East Asia, and the rest of the region further away. I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese decide to intervene now, and if that happens, it's not going to be pretty.

(Yes, I know the picture of the nuclear detonation above isn't of an underground bomb...)
