(Reuters) - North Korea said on Tuesday its military would be put on high alert and be ready to launch operations, stepping up tension after weeks of rhetoric directed against the United States and South Korea, who it accuses of instigating hostility.
In the latest outburst, a spokesman for the North's military warned the United States of "disastrous consequences" for moving a group of ships, including an aircraft carrier, into a South Korean port.
"The U.S. will be wholly accountable for the unexpected horrible disaster to be met by its imperialist aggression forces' nuclear strike means," the spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

I completly disagree, our brave men and women are still at their post and the NK military still do not stand a chance in a battle, period. It would be one hell of a beating, and short, trust me, this is just more BS spouting from junior cause he aint been on the tv enough lately...
Nobody actually wants the heavy hand. It is the US' ace in the hole. Has been for years.
