On a different blog, I was told North Korea could not have made an H-bomb.
There are two possibilities:
- North Korea told the truth when they said they tested their first H-bomb.
- Other ‘experts’ told the truth when they said this device was ‘too small.’ (*)
First, was the device too small for an ‘H-bomb?’ Sources claim it was 10 Kt. So, is 10 Kt in the range of gas salted Thermonuclear Warheads?
I think so,
….the 11 kt yield of the W34 Python would degrade to a figure comparable with the W25 without the gas-boosting (1).
I hated using wiki to support my hypothesis, so I found another article discussing ‘salted’ A-bombs (2).
SO … Or maybe ‘Therefor,’ I seriously doubt the ‘nuclear’ experts claiming the device was ‘too small.’ And if they choose to lie to US about the size, I think they were willing to lie about everything.
My hunch? I think North Korea thought they had a 15 Kt to 50 Kt device. They missed their yield projections in two ways. They missed their ‘primary’ A-bomb ignition and only part of their Plutonium made it to fission (critical mass). And they missed their expected fusion yield as well. The reduced fusion was probably the result of bad ‘reflector’ technology.
(*) This is not the first time we were lied to. The lies began when Clinton gave North Korea the technology to build Plutonium bombs. The same technology Obama and Kerry just promised Iran. Obama and Kerry told US Iran could not use the technology to build a bomb, THE SAME LIE Clinton told us in 1994.
I don’t fear a nuclear holocaust, do you?
