This just in from the American Embassy in Tokyo:
On Monday, October 9, U.S. and South Korean intelligence services detected a seismic event at a suspected nuclear test site in North Korea. North Korea has claimed it conducted an underground nuclear test, but these reports are unconfirmed. The United States Government is monitoring the situation closely.
Comment by J.P. Scott (2006), who sends a satirical message daily from his website, The Daily Whale:

A. I can't figure out whether they faked it incompetently, or actually did it incompetently.

C. Surprise increase in threat level, exactly as predicted.
D. Arright! Finally! The excuse for action!
