Security Expert "Nervous" About North Korea Escalating Threats Into War

The White House responded to North Korea’s announcement that it entered a “state of war” with South Korea. A spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council said, “We take these threats seriously and remain in close contact with our South Korean allies. But, we would also note that North Korea has a long history of bellicose rhetoric

and threats, and today's announcement follows that familiar pattern."

Jim Walsh, an international security expert from MIT, said on America’s News HQ, “North Korea doesn’t want to fight a big war because they know they would lose.”

However, he said the rhetoric and pace of events coming from the North Korean government has intensified over the past few weeks. Noting the inexperience of leaders in the region, Walsh said, “I worry about accidental war. I worry about someone messing up […] and then escalation.”
