Am I the Only One Who Thinks It's Ominously Significant...

...that the NorKs seem to have taken unprecedented quantum leaps in their nuclear weapons program, all of which have happened since it became clear that >Redacted< couldn't deliver on whatever deal(s) he had with PootyPoot?

And that, apparently, a lot of the tech assistance that's enabled these quantum leaps has come to them via pro-Russian Ukrainian tech sources?

Is anyone else connecting those dots?

Does the word "proxy" make sense to anyone else?

Or should I just go buy a roll of heavy-duty tinfoil and start a millinery business?

curiously,
Bright

4. Little evidence that they are proxies for anyone

No one wants the NKs having this capability, if for any reason they can sell it to anyone's enemies.

5. Apparently people in NE China felt the quake

and are referring publicly to the "Nightmare Neighbor." That's a change. It looks like his team are getting too good at this stuff and China is starting to get very nervous about him. There are a lot of S.Korean companies that have opened big factories in China and nobody wants that pudgy upstart to foul up the sweet deal they've got.

The pudgy upstart wants to be the one to reunite Korea, under his beneficent and divne leadership, of course.

6. Seismic sensors around the world went off when they detonated.

China and Russia had best get their heads out of their butts. They will get hit too, Kim Jung Cray-cray is just a younger Shittler.

7. I'm talking about the villages close to the border. They felt it.

There was a 4.1 quake when the detonation chamber collapsed. One hopes it also took out a significant portion of the adjacent facility, but probably not.

9. Well, Putin is now issuing warnings that the NK situation could escalate.

https://ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCAKCN1BC470-OCATP

He said Russia was working behind the scenes and that Moscow knew that Washington had a back channel to Pyongyang which he said he hoped would allow the two sides to de-escalate

10. I hope it's not mere pot-stirring. But on the "trustworthy" scale...

...PootyPoot rests somewhere south of even >Redacted<, which is quite an accomplishment.

skeptically,
Bright

11. Yes, it could be pot stirring or creating their own news stories to prime

the media. Russian propaganda. That article isn't all that compelling, but it does give some possible insights into how they are manipulating events to create their own story. I see what you're saying, though. It is strange that we have the most inept person ever in office, literally a reality TV clown, and all these global actors are coming forward.

I would bet the adults in government are watching this closely.
