North Korea To Detonate Nuke Tomorrow Morning
North Korea has, over the years, attempted to rouse up international governments. This has been accomplished in large part by using hyperbolic rhetoric. But more recently, North Korea has begun delving in the testing of nuclear weapons. And the world has grown more and more uneasy with what we’ve always viewed as just a lot of smoke with no fire.
Well, now there may be fire. And that fire may well be nuclear.
Steve Herman has tweeted out that the North intends to ignite a nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel. And they might do it tomorrow morning, according to his tweet.

This was followed by Washington-based 38 North, a website that monitors North Korea, saying that satellite images show vehicles and trailers at the Punggye-ri test site and signs that communications cables may have been laid to a test tunnel.
Yesterday foreign journalists visiting North Korea were told to prepare for a “big and important event” today.
End of the world? Not completely. North Korea has tested nuclear weapons underground before, as has the United States. The concern now, however, is what is the end game with this terrifying regime? The nuclear rhetoric and activity coming from the North have heightened greatly ever since Trump was elected. And his no-nonsense stance against them only seems to be breathing life into their ridiculousness.
Trump recently had Chinese President Xi Jinping out to his Florida estate. Trump disclosed publicly via Twitter that he and the Chinese President consider the North a “menace.” Could this Saturday’s potential detonation be a reaction to this?
Had a very good call last night with the President of China concerning the menace of North Korea.

One might start to get the impression that North Korea intends to push tensions to their highest possible level. Or you might consider them to be windbags with no real moxie. The game now is do we take a chance that they North Korea is a yearly bluff artist? Or do we finally take their threats at face value?
Donald Trump seems to be a less patient, or soft, President than we’ve seen in years. North Korea is hell-bent on breaking him. But he doesn’t appear breakable over the matter of North Korea producing nuclear weapons.
