ABSTRACT
The article contemplates on the underground nuclear testing conducted by North Korea on October 9, 2006 in the mountains above the town of Kilju. According to some experts, the explosion was small for a nuclear blast, which could indicate that it was partially successful. The United Nations (U.N.) Security Council passed a resolution calling for economic sanctions to punish North Korea on October 14. However, the U.N. resolution was widely criticized for being largely unenforceable.
