I guess it depends on who is translating the N.K. leader's words into English. Whether it is his diplomats, our diplomats, or the MSM, the exact translation from Crazy Fat Kid lingo to printed news is rich with opportunities for misunderstanding.

Formerly, they said he threatened to
detonate a nuke "on" the Pacific Ocean,
and now they say "above" it.

Both were also political movements with a religious component, just like Islam.

Yeah, this is not going to be a "comfortable" first week of November for me. I'm a little freaked out.....

Looks like October went out with a 'bang' in NOKO:

Collapse at North Korea nuclear test site 'leaves 200 dead'
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10 ... -200-dead/

Julian Ryall, Tokyo 31 October 2017 • 10:09am

s many as 200 North Korean labourers have been killed after a mine shaft being dug at the regime's nuclear test site collapsed, according to Japan's Asahi TV.

Sources in North Korea told the news channel that a tunnel being excavated by around 100 workers at the Punggye-ri test site collapsed earlier this month.

An additional 100 labourers sent to rescue their colleagues were reportedly killed when the tunnel suffered a second collapse.

An exact date for the disaster has not been provided, but it comes shortly after North Korea conducted its sixth - and most powerful - underground nuclear test at the site.

North Korea claims the September 3 test beneath Mount Mantap was of a hydrogen bomb, with monitors suggesting the detonation was equivalent to an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 on the Richter Scale.

Some analysts put the yield of the weapon as high as 280 kilotons, while seismologists picked up signs of underground collapses in the hours and days after the blast.

Satellite images of the Punngye-ri site taken immediately after the test revealed significant damage to surface features, including landslips.

On October 17, a study published by the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University and published on the 38 North website suggested the sixth underground test at the site had caused "substantial damage to the existing tunnel network under Mount Mantap".

Nam Jae-chol, the head of South Korea's Meteorological Administration, warned in testimony before its parliament on Monday that further tests at Punggye-ri could cause the mountain to collapse and release radioactivity into the environment.

"Based on our analysis of satellite imagery, we judge that there is a hollow space, which measures about 60 metres by 100 metres beneath Mount Matap", he said. "Should another nuclear test take place, there is a possibility [of a collapse]".

Chinese scientists have issued similar warnings, suggesting that nuclear fallout could spread across "an entire hemisphere" if the mountain did collapse.

200 feared dead after tunnel collapses at North Korean nuclear test site, Japanese TV claims
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/10/31 ... laims.html

About 200 people are feared dead in North Korea after underground tunnels at a nuclear test site that was feared to be unstable reportedly collapsed, crushing 100 people in the initial cave-in and 100 others when the tunnels again gave way on top of rescuers.

The collapse at the Punggye-ri test site on Oct. 10 occurred while people were doing construction on the underground tunnel, Japan’s Asahi TV reported, citing a source in North Korea. The television station also said North Korea’s sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3 most likely caused the tunnel to crumble and created serious damage in the region.

No officials have confirmed the Japanese TV station’s claims, but experts have feared for more than a month that the test site was on the verge of crumbling since the nuclear blast. North Korea said it detonated a hydrogen bomb, calling it a “perfect success.” It was the country’s most powerful bomb tested to date and the blast was reportedly 10 times more powerful than the nuclear bomb that was dropped over Hiroshima at the end of World War II.

The test triggered a 6.3-magnitude earthquake that day and multiple tremors have been detected from the area since then. Satellite images obtained by 38 North, which specializes in North Korea issues, showed several landslides occurred after the Sept. 3 test. Also a possible “collapse chimney crater” was seen on Mount Mantap, possibly caused by the underground tests.

It’s unclear if the mountain will collapse in the near future, but the report said there was “significant cracking” and “irreversible strain” on the land because of the nuclear test.

Some experts also said Mantap was suffering from “tired mountain syndrome” due to the stress on the ground, the Washington Post reported. Chinese scientists have also warned the mountain could collapse and release radiation. Radioactive xenon-133 was detected in South Korea after the test.

Additionally on Tuesday, North Korea rebuked Trump and the U.S., saying "the Trump group's vicious vituperation against the DPRK is an expression of their frustration, fear and horror,” according to a statement released by state-run Korean Central News Agency. The day before, the Hermit Kingdom blamed Trump’s “extreme, direct and long threats” for driving them to obtain "complete nuclear deterrence.”

“The U.S. has to ponder over the possible consequences,” the statement said.

If the next test seems a bit delayed, now we know why.
