WASHINGTON (AP) Recent satellite photos show North Korea could be almost ready to carry out its threat to conduct a nuclear test, a U.S. research institute said Friday.

The images of the Punggye-ri site, where nuclear tests were conducted in 2006 and 2009, reveal that over the past month, roads have been kept clear of snow and that North Koreans may have been sealing the tunnel into a mountainside where a nuclear device would be detonated.

But it remains difficult to discern North Korea's true intentions, as a test would be conducted underground.

The analysis was provided to The a.ssociated Press by 38 North, the website of the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. The latest image was taken Wednesday.

North Korea's powerful National Defense Commission declared its plans Thursday after the U.N. Security Council tightened sanctions in response to a December long-range rocket launch. It described the plans as part of a "new phase" of combat with the United States, which retains 28,000 troops in South Korea and which it blames for leading the U.N. bid to punish Pyongyang.

The North said a nuclear test was part of "upcoming" action but did not say exactly when or where it would take place.

38 North concludes that the Punggye-ri site, in the country's northeast, "appears to continue to be at a state of readiness that would allow the North to move forward with a test in a few weeks or less once the leadership in Pyongyang gives the order."

South Korean media have cited intelligence officials as saying technical preparations appear complete, and the North could be ready to test within days of making a decision to do so.

U.S. officials confirmed Friday that some trucks have been seen moving around the site. One official said the U.S. is not ruling out that the test could happen in the near future.

But the officials cautioned that, as in previous tests, because it would be done underground, the U.S. may not know much before it actually happens. Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss intelligence matters publicly.

In 2006, North Korea detonated a nuclear device just six days after it announced its plans to do so, and in 2009, 26 days after the announcement. Both tests came weeks after the U.N. Security Council had condemned it for long-range rocket launches.

"While the test site appears to continue to be at a high state of readiness, it's anyone's guess when a detonation might occur. The North Koreans may do it tomorrow, some other day or they may decide to wait until a meaningful date like Kim Jong Il's birthday on Feb. 16," said Joel Wit, a former U.S. State Department official and the editor of 38 North.

Anniversaries related to members of North Korea's ruling dynasty, such as former leader Kim Jong Il, who died in December 2011, are marked with great fanfare in the authoritarian nation.

In its a.ssessment of the preparations at Punggye-ri, 38 North noted that there was considerable snowfall there in November 2012. It said subsequent clearing operations as well as tracks in the snow in the remote area reveal activity at buildings and on roads near the possible test tunnel.

A satellite image taken Jan. 4 shows 30 or more personnel, possibly soldiers or security guards, in formation in the yard of the main administrative buildings at the site.

A Dec. 24 image shows a pile of material in the same yard. Its purpose is uncertain, but it could be intended for sealing the tunnel. By the time of Wednesday's photo, the pile had shrunk, which could indicate operations have begun to seal the tunnel, according to the analysis.

North Korea is one of the most backward nations with one of the most backward systems of government (Communism) but our response doesn't change the danger they can pose. Not saying we should invade or anything but NK, much like Iran, is a 'suicide nation' not caring about its future or its people. Their only intent is bringing about and triggering widespread death and destruction by any means necessary. They don't care.

Look at history, when's the last time we straight up went to war with a conventional military? 1991 Desert Storm. sh*t only lasted 100ish days because we freed Kuwait, which is like the size of Connecticut. 22 years is a long a.ss time as far as the military is concerned. Fact is damn near none of the people that are in the military now were in 22 years ago. We wouldn't really be adapted to f!ght a conventional military like North Korea's. sh*t, we can't even defeat insurgencies in Iraq and Afghettostan
North Korea is a lot bigger.. and they're people are loyal to their cause. It would be a bloody a.ss war fam. Peep the Korean War in the 50's

the Iraq military SURRENDERED two weeks after we invaded and at least those n*ggas had running water and electricity in most parts of the country.


smartphones look like space alien tech to the average N. Korean.

oh, and S. Korea has a population twice as large and a military waaaaaaaaaaaay more powerful. S. Korea would literally be able to handle this one solo and get it done in way under a month, too.

we've already basically been waging economic war with them for a long time.. they are posturing because they are starving.. If they weren't so hard headed they could get sanctions lifted and their economy could grow, communism does not work.
