North Korea Vows to Step up Nuke Program And Warns of Nuclear War

North Korea is 'rattling the saber' again. This time they are taking the rhetoric up a notch. They have have announced that they are stepping up their nuclear program and more than hinted at the possibility of a nuclear war. Par for the course or a real escalation; still a bit early to tell but some people are starting to worry.

"North Korea has warned of a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula while vowing to step up its atomic weapons programme in defiance of new UN sanctions.
In yesterday's statement, Pyongyang said it has been enriching uranium to provide fuel for its light-water reactor. It was the first public acknowledgment that the North is running such a programme in addition to its known plutonium one.
