North Korean Nuclear Base Tunnel Collapses, Kills 200

According to Japanese TV Asahi, North Korea’s nuclear base had an underground tunnel collapse, and it killed up to 200 people. There were about 100 workers who were sent in to help rescue any survivors, however there was a second collapse that killed them.

We are not quite sure of the exact date of the accident, however we do not know that it came sometime after the they tested a nuclear device underground on September 3rd.

Because there was underground testing, and then a collapse, there are concerns about radioactive leaks.

While part of me wants to feel bad for them, this wouldn’t have happened if they weren’t trying to build a bomb to attack the United States. Therefore I lack sympathy.

Fox News reports:

Just yesterday, a South Korean official had warned that any future nuclear tests by North Korea risked collapsing its mountain test site.  Apparently, the collapse had already taken place.

South Korea had detected several largely small-sized earthquakes near the northeastern nuclear test site the North used for its sixth bomb explosion in September. Experts said the quakes suggested the area, which was also used for the North’s previous underground nuclear tests, was now too unstable to conduct more tests there.

Analysts believe North Korea will likely conduct more nuclear and missile tests to try to build a reliable arsenal of nuclear-tipped missiles capable of striking anywhere in the mainland U.S. It’s unclear when and where those tests could take place.

North Korea’s foreign minister said last month that his country could conduct a hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean.

According to U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis, the threat of North Korea firing a nuclear missile towards the United States is quickly increasing.
