Pile Up the Sandbags and Paint Your Windows White

The international community has reacted to North Korea's latest attempt to keep the peace in the Far East by condemning, denouncing, scrambling, huffing and puffing.

North Korea's latest nuclear weapons test is thought to have involved a bomb comparable to the one used on Hiroshima during the Japanese effort to surrender at the end of the Second World War.

The Hiroshima bomb, which was dropped by the USA in order to save lives, killed several more people than the North Korean test. The USA has condemned the test in chorus with other world leaders in disarmament including China.

President Obama referred to the test as a "blatant violation of international law", quite unlike anything that might have happened in Gaza recently.

Gordon Brown, a staunch supporter of the Iraq war who is in nominal charge of a minor part of America's North Atlantic disarmament activities, called the test "erroneous, misguided and a danger to the world".

The Home Secretary is thought to be preparing a public infotainment armaggedopackage advising hard-working families on how to protect themselves if approached by a North Korean.

Diplomats did not comment on whether the test showed that the long, hard search to find a Hitler for the second decade of the twenty-first century had finally reached a successful conclusion.
