North Korea said it conducted a sixth and significantly larger nuclear test Sunday, stepping up pressure on President Donald Trump in what is shaping up to be his biggest foreign policy crisis.
In a televised statement, North Korea described the underground explosion, which triggered a large earthquake, as a â€śperfect success in the test of a hydrogen bomb for an ICBM.â€ť Pyongyang said â€śthe creditability of the operation of the nuclear warhead is fully guaranteed.â€ť
The test came just hours after leader Kim Jong Un showed off what he described as a hydrogen bomb capable of being mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile....
ABC News Radio wrote: Following the blast, a U.S. intelligence official had described the U.S. as "highly confident" that North Korea had tested "an advanced nuclear device" that was not inconsistent with North Koreaâ€™s claims.
Afterward, some other officials advanced that further, saying intelligence assessments determined it was "possible" that North Korea had tested a hydrogen bomb.
On Thursday, an Air Force WC-135 â€śConstant Phoenixâ€ť monitoring aircraft flew from Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa to detect any radioactive isotopes that may have made it into the atmosphere.

With all this talk of Russians allegedly interfering in U.S. elections, it is worth recalling that it wasnâ€™t too long ago that the previous Democrat in the White House betrayed America by working hand in hand with our Communist enemies in mainland China.
As president, Bill Clinton essentially wiped out any strategic advantage the U.S. had by selling advanced U.S. missile technology to our enemy, the Peopleâ€™s Republic of China.
That â€śadministrationâ€™s voluntary release of all the secrets of Americaâ€™s nuclear tests, combined with the systematic theft of the secrets that were left as a result of its lax security controls, effectively wiped out Americaâ€™s technological edge,â€ť David Horowitz writes in the recently published, The Black Book of the American Left Volume 7: The Left in Power: Clinton to Obama.
It would be a providential grace were NoKo threats to China be a cause of US tech based China missles taking out NoKo's "legion of Devils"leader.
I can hear BJC's oily drawl now in a follow up book deal- "I say it again, I DID sell tech to China so they could take out North Korea, and that is why you should vote for my little puddin' for Presidentette"
North Korea has benefited from arms and technology from China and Russia. The DRNK scientists have been trained by Pakistan, China and Russia. A technology embargo with the 3 mentioned nations may help. But rumor has it China tried to run off Kim Un and replace him with his brother. His brother was killed as were a number of his generals. So, Kim may have no problem attacking China as well. He's just that crazy.
Who is stronger, God or Satan? God is stronger. I John 3: 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. ; 4: 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
/- Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.Is.51:6 -- 2pe3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13aNevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens "
I think that Psalm 2 is most appropriate here. Of course, Iran finds North Korea very useful, and these two rogue nations are able to assist each other on their nuclear ambitions, thumbing their nose up at sanctions, and defying the world.
God will sovereignly deal with these nations in His time.
