Nothing to fear from North Korea’s H Bomb Test

As has been announced on their state television, North Korea has successfully tested a Hydrogen bomb, upgrading their nuclear weapons capability. This will naturally panic people all over the world, the North Korean state is run by ideological lunatics, are they that mad they would use their nuclear weapons?

Luckily the answer is no. The North Korean is crazy yes, but it is not messianic in its insanity. North Korea wants to survive and be independent, it is not ISIS, it does not dream of paradise and martyrdom. As the ‘newsreader’ said in the announcement:

‘This test is a measure of the self-defence the DPRK has taken to firmly protect the sovereignty of the country and the vital right of the nation from the ever-growing nuclear threat and blackmail from US led hostile forces’.

It is naturally horrifying that a country as noxious as North Korea has nuclear weapons, it is also frightening, but they are not THAT crazy. They should abide by the MAD theory of nuclear deterrence.

So in the immortal words of Corporal Jones from Dad’s Army ‘DON’T PANIC!’.

P.S – I failed to mention an important point. There is also the possibility that North Korea is just bullshitting, making grandiose claims about their great success. So even less to worry about.
