Is this simply 'tough talk', or is it time to get very nervous?
Could you not put a more informative, thought provoking OP together than this?

Never remember a statement by 'the dear leader' in the modern era, being as blunt.

Depends on ones distance from Pyongyang.

You think a headline stating North Korea is entering a state of war with South Korea isn`t thought provoking enough ?

How is this new? Since it started, the war between North and South Korea never ended at all, technically speaking.

Not any other information to go on, right now.
What about the history of the division? The geopolitical nature of the tension between the two? The contrast between the economic fortunes of the two states and how that might represent, in a very stark way, a twisted form of communism versus a twisted form of capitalism? How dynasties are inherent in Korean culture and how this might have led to this confrontation? That this might be the epitome of the interface between fading Western colonialsm and Eastern ascendancy?

It's an important story but it needs context.

We wouldn't have many threads at all if you have to do a thesis on each one.

It's a pretty stark headline - hopefully just the usual empty threats coming out of N Korea as part of a bargaining strategy but they have been upping the rhetoric of late.

Not a thesis, but not two lines either.
