As of yesterday, it's official, North Korea's nuclear program is on hold, because its testing site is destroyed.:

North Korean Nuclear Test Site Has Collapsed, Explaining Kim's "Suspension" Of Further Tests

The trouble is, are we being told the truth as to how its test site was destroyed? Joseph offers a bit of high octane speculation about this story from last year:

Mattis hints at secret 'kinetic' military options for North Korea

    Now add volcanoes to the earthquake
    bake & shake recipes for disaster capitalism at its finest.
    Do you want to super-size that volcano[a super volcano]?

  2. Could the chimney hole reference to a military strike by a space-based weapon a la Star Wars. A smaller version of the death star but I assume that the NK government has a contingency plan to cover that possibility this is not the first time they have gone head to head with the USA.

  3. Everything you ever wanted to know about the geology of the North Korean test site:

    (I particularly like Figure A10.)

    I tend to be on the ‘natural collapse’ side. The mountainous area of the NK test site was built-up from “Shintokuri stratified volcanics.” This means that there were numerous layers of lava of various strengths laid-down over time. In turn, this means that innumerable strong/weak points exist between layers.

    A thermonuclear blast is also different than an earthquake. The blast shockwave is ‘hard edged’ and tends to, well, shock all the rock rather than just fracture it along planes of weakness. ‘Shocking’ would produce weaknesses everywhere along a bubble-shaped shockwave, lessening with distance. A shocking-caused cavity-collapse would be very likely after this, with access to the surface through the innumerable strong/weak points existing between volcanic-layers mentioned above. No ‘rod of god’ needed.

    (If the SSP has some kind of ‘resonator’ device, that could be used to bring-on a collapse within a pre-weakened area…)

    An ironic twist on the elitist preferred weapon: structured violence. A usually, baked in the cake violence, that lets the poisonous baked-in violence, be eaten by the subjects of the elite, that inherited[literally & figuratively] this structure. Now, w/space age technologies, that structural violence can be imposed w/extreme violent prejudice w/o remorse.

  5. Chim, chimney
    Chim, chimney
    Chim, chim, cher-ee
    A sweep is as lucky
    As lucky can be
    Chim, chimney
    Chim, chimney
    Chim, chim, cher-oo
    Good luck will rub off when
    I shakes hands with you
