FILE – In this Wednesday, March 2, 2016, file photo, the United Nations Security Council votes on a resolution that would impose the toughest sanctions on North Korea in two decades, during a meeting at U.N.
The sanctions also ban or restrict exports of coal, iron and iron ore and other minerals from North Korea, and prohibit the supply of aviation fuel including rocket fuel as part of efforts to get Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear and missile ambitions.
The comments, carried by the North’s official KCNA news agency, marked a further escalation of tension on the Korean peninsula after the U.N. Security Council imposed harsh new sanctions on the isolated state for its nuclear program.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ordered his country to be ready to use its nuclear weapons at any time and the military to be in “pre-emptive attack” mode in the face of growing threats from its enemies, state media said on Friday
Additionally, North Korea has not married a nuclear device with a long-range missile, and the United States does not know whether North Korea would do so without testing first.

Don't really think there's much to fear.
