North Korean Nuclear Test

Everyone seems to agree that a North Korean nuclear test is a bad thing, but I’m a bit at a loss for smart things to say about it. Joe Cirincione says “North Korean nuclear test shows the failure of both US and China’s strategy to roll back the program.”

I guess it strikes me that the DPRK’s nose for grabbing attention seems a bit off if they’re deciding to do this over what’s a holiday weekend in the United States.
