North Korea threatened Tuesday to turn South Korea into "debris" in an unusually strong statement that demanded Seoul halt what the communist state called its policy of confrontation.

N. Korea most certainly can turn S. Korea into debris. They do have nukes, remember. And it's not an accusation anymore. Remember their nuclear test they did a few years ago and their missile tests where they launched ICBM's at Hawaii.
It's true their nuke test kind of fizzled, but I'm sure by now they have refined their nukes to be fully operational.
North Korea fields an artillery force of over 12,000 self-propelled and towed weapon systems. Without moving any artillery pieces, the North could sustain up to 500,000 rounds an hour against Combined Forces Command defenses for several hours. The artillery force includes 500 long-range systems deployed over the past decade. The proximity of these long-range systems to the Demilitarized Zone threatens all of Seoul with devastating attacks.
