Michael Yon breaks some news. Or, at least, independently confirms the news broken by Bill Gertz last night in the WashTimes.

But he does add one important detail:

The source stressed the importance of bearing in mind that though the explosion occured in North Korea — if it was actually a test and not merely a dictator clamoring for attention and influence — the test may have been by or for the Iranians.

Why would he think that?


Ahmadinejad’s not the only world leader telling nuclear lies these days.

Update: The Interocitor has a theory about why the NK test fizzled.

Update: Here we go again. Japan has detected another tremor originating in North Korea. Standby for updates.

Update: Fox says the South Koreans didn’t detect anything.

Update: Looks like it was just a quake.
