Kim Jong Un vows to attack South Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un instructed his soldiers to be ready for "all out war." If tensions with South Korea peak, Kim Jong Un commanded that his troops "make the first gun fire." To this point, Kim has promised a "great advance" over the border between North and South Korea. This is following UN sanctions against North Korea and the subsequent announcement that North Korea was ending its peace treaty with the south. With this increasing war rhetoric, it is difficult to predict what will happen next.
