In 2006, 2009 and 2013, North Korea tested atomic weapons and in 2016 tested another, larger weapon with a yield of 10-30 kilotonnes[i]. It’s worth noting that the atomic bombs dropped in World War II were…

The dey is an imbecile who has outbursts of puerility like a child and who reflects on nothing, before or after giving his orders[1].…
