We talked about sanctions at the top of Wednesday’s program, the North Koreans are thinking about ’em too.

Here’s just a brief snippet of the official English language announcement of the test from Pyongyang:

“The U.S. is a gang of cruel robbers, which has worked hard to bring even a nuclear disaster to the DPRK. Not content with having imposed the thrice-cursed and unheard-of political isolation, economic blockade and military pressure on it, for the mere reason that it has differing ideology and social system and refuses to yield to the former’s ambition for aggression.”

So, that.
