Pyongyang has restarted its propaganda loudspeaker broadcasts along the border with South Korea, local media reported Friday.

TOKYO (Sputnik) — The decision follows Seoul’s similar action in response to North Korea’s recent nuclear test, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency said.

Earlier in the day, South Korea restarted its propaganda broadcasts and raised the alert level near the border to the highest level, as well as deployed artillery at the locations.

On Wednesday, North Korea announced that it had successfully tested a nuclear fusion bomb.

    They will just make things worst. Not any better.

    I admit that I do not know, I am ignorant through not having the possibility to do extensive research now about the subject: I honestly believe that NK possessing a few Nuclear weapons has no intention to use them to destroy any neighbours. I sincerely believe that they did it to command respect from others. All right, they still frighten many in the world through their Communist Government, but many , many countries are not scared of It. I try to put myself in SK's shoes. Difficult for me.
    Something that strikes me with NK ( of which I am no fan, but am starting to understand a few things): has anyone noticed how the population APPEARS , repeat, appears to be well-fed, and relatively happy and certainly patriotic? Has any one watched the video of Pres. Putin state visit to Russia's neighbour( NK) a few years ago? Did any one notice the enthusiastic welcome Mr. Putin received? The tens of thousands of people lining the streets? I looked at their faces: I was surprised by what I saw.
    Last puzzle: how could a country apparently so poor, miserable, with hardly any contact with the outside world could produce a few n. bombs? Have you noticed how well-dressed the soldiers and civilians were?
