200 North Koreans Killed While Building Nuclear Test Site
Telegraph- As many as 200 North Korean labourers have been killed after a mine shaft being dug at the regime’s nuclear test site collapsed, according to Japan’s Asahi TV.
Sources in North Korea told the news channel that a tunnel being excavated by around 100 workers at the Punggye-ri test site collapsed earlier this month.
An additional 100 labourers sent to rescue their colleagues were reportedly killed when the tunnel suffered a second collapse.
On October 17, a study published by the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University and published on the 38 North website suggested the sixth underground test at the site had caused “substantial damage to the existing tunnel network under Mount Mantap”.
“Based on our analysis of satellite imagery, we judge that there is a hollow space, which measures about 60 metres by 100 metres beneath Mount Matap”, he said. “Should another nuclear test take place, there is a possibility [of a collapse]”.
The North Koreans are testing bombs under a mountain, and they keep scooping out more and more of the pumpkin each time they light off one of these bombs. At some point, the pumpkin will collapse on itself, which could release widespread radiation. Not only that, but the tunnels and mines around the test site are collapsing, killing hundreds of North Korean laborers. At some point you have to wonder: are they just going to beat themselves? Have they ever built a snow fort? Everyone knows you can’t get too greedy when blowing up the inside of a mountain. This isn’t The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Or something.
By my understanding, 100 guys were trapped when one end of a tunnel collapsed. They sent in an additional 100 munchkins to dig those guys out, but the other end of the tunnel collapsed, so both groups perished. Talk about chopping off both heads of the snake. It’s your classic, “GO BACK! GO BACK! WE’RE FUCKED!” moment.
Now, you guys know me–I don’t celebrate when people die. The passing of a soul from this life to the next is no cause for mirth. But I’ll make an exception when it’s 200 North Korean guys working on their version of the Manhattan Project. I hope the entire ant farm of Kim Jong’s minions collapses upon itself, burying these guys under a mountain of radioactive rubble.
PS- this was kinda interesting:
Probably a moot point given that we have enough nukes that the size of an individual explosion doesn’t matter. But Russia’s “Tsar Bomba” in 1961 was HUGE. Dammit. The silver lining is that North Korea’s bomb 2 months ago was a micropenis compared the shit we tested 75 years ago. Haha North Korea, you teenie-weenie toting, Napoleonc-complex having losers!
