Hong Kong (CNN) -- North Korea's nuclear test prompted united condemnation and a vow of tough action from the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday.
The council issued a statement slamming an underground nuclear test that jolted the already fragile security situation in Northeast Asia.

---

The test probably took place near P'unggye and yielded "several kilotons," according to assessments cited by the U.S. director of national intelligence. It drew condemnation from around the globe and prompted an emergency Security Council session Tuesday morning.



Surprised there isn't already some discussion on this...

Sabre rattling by NK or more than that? What do they want? They have to have some agenda other than just pissing the world off... Japan and SK are freaked and even China is telling them to settle down.

I have no idea what the end goal is here. They already have nukes which means nobody will invade, but they cant use them without guaranteeing their own downfall. Any hope that Kim Jong Un is more reasonable than his dad is basically over.

The only thing keeping North Korea from falling into obscurity and even further abject poverty is it's military aggression. Extreme communism almost always results in failure especially when it is run by a dictator and the military. What else are you going to do as the esteemed leader or a general in the army. Become pacifist? Admit that your own policies are destroying your country?

You don't save your job in the short term by feeding your own people in this model.

Doing something stupid and getting your people to revolt would be the best thing for NK but it's not happening anytime soon.

You do this to keep the charitable contributes flowing.
They shut them off, you do something dumb, accept olive branch....
this isn't the first time this has happened.

Fact is NOBODY involved wants the status quo changed...sadly.
