    Default Asian stocks plunge after North Korean nuclear test announcement

    SINGAPORE - Singapore share prices stocks fell sharply in late-morning trade Monday after North Korea announced its first-ever nuclear test.

    The Straits Times index was down 34.3 points or 1.3 percent at 2,615.0 after closing last week within sight of its record close of 2,659.85, reached on May 3.

    The STI had opened down 5.86 points ahead of the announcement by Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency that the nuclear test had been conducted.

    Markets in Japan and Taiwan were closed Monday for public holidays but other regional markets were also under pressure from the news.

    In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng Index was down 1.53 percent or 274.59 points at 17,628.80 at 11:03am (0303 GMT).

    In South Korea, the KOSPI index plunged 2.54 percent to 1,317.63 in midday trade.

    embargo, sanctions, etc... the usual stuff.

    i'm interested in what Russia and China have to say. it makes me wonder if both these countries still support communism in a indirect manner.

    no way. the military option will not be used so easily.

    no one has credible intelligence on N korea. no one knows how many nukes they have. if the world launches a strike on NK, they may randomly fire off 10 nukes to different parts of the world. China, Japan, India, S Korea may all be hit and decimated.

    I hope not. Global Police United States is stretched pitifully thin in Iraq, and if they want to start a second theatre of operations have not got that many forces in South Korea and Japan to stand up to the North Korea's million-man army.

    If it goes to an armed conflict, the US might use drone vehicles, or non-conventional weapons such as microwave bombs that disable hi-tech devices.

    But China and Japan have taken a unified stance toward North Korea, and it could signal the ascendancy of China as a military power if she leads a stand against North Korea, together with a coalition of concerned nations (such as Japan, which has already been nuked twice).

    I for one feel that North Korea is a wild cannon that needs to be reined in one way or another before it gets out of control.

    North Korea is playing an daring chess game.

    Either they wins to escape the interntioanl embargo, if not, checkmate.

    Try it and see what happens.

    It doesn't take one with background in Political Science to know what would happen if the world were to adopt this option.

    Yes. I would love that.
