Kim and Trump Keep Fire and Fury Burning

North Korea detonated a nuclear weapon underground early Sunday morning, demonstrating both its destructive power as well as its defiance of the international community.

In this, North Korea’s sixth nuclear test, the blast’s power reportedly exceeded – by up to seven times – that of the nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. It marks the first time Pyongyang has achieved anything near this level of destruction.
