Nuclear Update

North Korea has officially confirmed it tested a nuclear device around 9:30am on Friday morning.  This will open dialogue at a variety of levels in the international community.  The announcement of the test highlights a key in North Korean history: this is the first time ever North Korea has tested two nuclear devices in a single year.  Today’s test also is the strongest test result in North Korean history, marking a very rapid advancement in North Korea’s nuclear program.  This will be the last update for tonight, as I am human and need to sleep, but I will analyze the test in a post tomorrow.
