North Korea's nuclear underground test in its remote, northeast area on Tuesday was considered a hostile act and brought much concern worldwide.
The defiant act was a direct disregard of warnings by the United Nations and set off strong waves of energy which traveled through the earth's layers causing concern amongst not only the U.N. and U.S. but also from it's only major ally, China.
It was reported that North Korea representatives said the atomic test was simply its "first response" to U.S. threats and that it will continue with "second and third measures of greater intensity," if the U.S. remains hostile.
North Korea has taken a crucial step toward its goal of developing a bomb small enough to fit on a missile capable of striking its target.
South Korea's response to Tuesday's display was unveiled in a video showing a cruise missile which can hit anywhere in North Korea, specifically an of the offices of North Korea's leaders.
"The cruise missile being unveiled today is a precision-guided weapon that can identify and strike the window of the office of North Korea's leadership," ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said.
Is history repeating itself?
Regardless of how these acts are interpreted there is room for great concern.
With failing economic times and world issues spiraling out of control this is one more thing humanity does not need.
North and South Korea literally still at war since its past war are still creating havoc in today's current date in time.
This flexing of muscles is a sure warning that an impending disaster is on the horizon.
"The situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula at present is so serious that even a slight accidental case may lead to an all-out war which can disturb the whole region," North Korea's official KCNA news agency said.
The question stands, "Is history repeating itself?"
