"Both countries have gotten away for far too long and have faced too few consequences for turning a blind eye to the sanctions busting business activities of their citizens and those of North Korea", said David Albright, a nuclear proliferation analyst with the Institute for Science and International Security, at a U.S. Congressional hearing Wednesday. Clearly, tensions between the USA, its allies, and North Korea are not settling down anytime soon. He has now visited North Korea 32 times as part of his "sports exchanges" between Japan and North Korea, which have no formal diplomatic ties.
In a statement, North Korea responded by calling the actions "state terrorism" and that the "chief culprit" involved in "cooking up the "sanctions resolution", be beaten to death with a stick fit for a rabid dog".
North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and said the USA should be "beaten to death like a rabid dog" after the two countries spearheaded fresh UN Security Council sanctions in response to the regimes nuclear test earlier this month, a media report said. "It is something that markedly heightens regional tension and is absolutely unacceptable".
Similarly, US monitor, which also keeps a tab on Pynogyang activities, said the recent nuclear test caused 6.3-magnitude natural disaster in North Korea, the tremors of which were also felt in China and Russian Federation, possibly due to a rock cave-in. That led to Resolution 1718, establishing a United Nations sanctions regime, aiming to stop all nuclear, ballistic missile, and other weapons of mass destruction programs. But now it likely can. Five days later, it carried out a sixth nuclear test, sending tensions soaring over its weapons ambitions and causing global concern. And US intelligence officials believe that North Korea will soon be able to reliably fit a nuclear warhead atop a missile. Officials want to end the standoff preferably through diplomatic negotiations, where Pyongyang agrees to give up its nuclear weapons.

Writing for 38 North, the Johns Hopkins University website dedicated to North Korea issues, analysts Frank V. Pabian, Joseph S. Bermudez Jr. and Jack Liu say North Korea's site now has "additional slippage" in "pre-existing landslide scars" and a "possible subsidence crater". But South Korea must also deal with other threats from its Northern neighbor.
There is evidence the North Koreans will not stop tests at Punggye-ri, they said.
So while some used to laugh at North Korea's boisterous statements, it's doubtful many in Washington, Seoul, and Tokyo are chuckling now.
