North Korea is ready for a "sacred war of justice" using the nuclear deterrent, its armed forces minister has said.
The North earlier branded Seoul's exercises "warmongering" but until now had not threatened the South with any retaliation.
John Sudworth BBC News There is no doubt that the verbal ante is being upped by both sides here at the moment. I don't think we should read too much into it. It's the sort of thing we've heard from North Korea before. It's threatened to use its nuclear deterrent in the past. But I think there will be people who worry that what's happening is that as each side lays down this conditional threat, a line is being drawn in the sand and it's tempting the other side to cross over it. And the worry is that if you keep talking tough, both North and South Korea, eventually you may be forced to act on it.

But the only problem, is war isn't as profitable as is it once was. Its not like either sides in any war take as many losses like those back in the earlier wars. Its not like we lose tanks and airplanes on a daily basis. With technology advances, its just not feasible.
I think this is all a p#ssing match, just waiting for any provocation to blow each other to oblivion. The only ones to gain, would be the US, ( the southern regions ) and China/Russia for the ( northern regions ).

Another Korean war is inevitable. It's not a matter of 'if', it's a matter of 'when'.
Also, humans are warlike creatures even though we have a choice not to be. Even if we have a unified planet of humans, we will go off into space and find something else to wage war against.
Natural selection works.
