South Korea has taken its dispute with North Korea to the UN Security Council, saying Pyongyang must admit to sinking its warship and endangering peace. (The North denies responsibility and has accused the South of staging the incident to help Mr Lee(above) in local elections this week.) Source . Member reactions:
[ If you haven't heard the explosion yesterday, nor saw the TV or read newspapers, let me say it real quick - North Korea exploded its first nuclear bomb under ground yesterday. At least they claim they did, because scientists are skeptical it was a nuclear explosion. Seismographs all over the world detected a blast at around 1 kiloton or less - equivalent to the explosive force of 1,000 tons of TNT. For a nuclear device, that would be so weak that the French defense minister suggested that "there could have been a failure" with the North Korean reported test. ]
OK, let's see what we have here. Seismographs all over the world detect a blast too weak for atomic explosion. North Korea says "It was a nuclear explosion, dammit!". It was underground too, so there're no radioactive clouds that can be detected either.
With the same luck, North Korean Kim Jong-il could have farted in the UN building and claim it was a nuke exlposion. And then other world leaders could confirm that they heard a blast, and that it definitely smells fishy.
In this contest you are asked to show that North Korean Nuclear test was a staged hoax. Show the creative ways how they could have done it; magazine covers exposing the hoax; tourism advertisements promoting North Korean amusements, new products and toys connected to fake nukes, etc.
