The New York Times wrote about recent US-ROK vs. DPRK threats and got at least part of it right. Here, they point out how North Korea loves to take umbrage at any real or imagined slight. Unfortunately the paper doesn't provide sufficient perspective for readers to understand how weak this particular KCNA press release really was.
North Korea always bristles at any outside criticism of its leadership and often counters with sharp language. It has labeled various American and South Korean leaders “human scum,” “war maniacs” and “running dogs.” It once called Mrs. Clinton a “minister in a skirt.” (NYT)
The Times failed to mention that North Korea had recently threatened South Korea with nuclear assault, and that we just returned that dubious favor. Very few other news sources have covered the story. As far from the mark as the NYT hit, they did a better job than any other article I've read.
I honestly don't think we will see nuclear war with DPRK, but the maneuvering taking place here has global impact and is unique on the global stage. This is the most under-reported story I know of.
