Despite the looming threat of international sanctions, North Koreans hailed their country's first nuclear test as a proud event and scoffed at moves to punish the communist nation. "We are not scared of any sanctions," said Kim Nam Sook, a 31-year-old guide at Diamond Mountain, a South Korean-run tourist enclave inside the reclusive North, which the US suspects is helping to bankroll Pyongyang's arms program. "Any economic sanctions by US imperialists will only help us endure more difficulties in the future," Kim said in an interview earlier this week. "We should even thank them for that."
