Lookout for fireworks

The diplomatic talk-talk coming from North Korea is getting rather nasty:

The U.N. sanctions against North Korea for its nuclear test are a declaration of war, and the country will "deal merciless blows" if the nation's sovereignty is violated, the North's central government said Tuesday in its first response to the U.N. measures.

The North wants "peace but is not afraid of war," the country's Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.
We'll see. As posturing goes, this is rather blunt...but I personally doubt its much more than talk.
