Nuclear threats in Korea, a possible start to civil war

According to an article from The New York Times by Martin Fackler and Choe Sang-Hun on March 10th, 2013, South Korea has been getting war related and nuclear threats from North Korea. Now the south has started thinking about getting its own supply of nuclear weapons. Most likely it will happen as more than two thirds of the population in the south have agreed to it. Lately, North Korea has been vastly improving its own nuclear arms and have been followed by threats of using these on the capital of South Korea, Seoul. With two new leaders on both the North and South of Korea, many tensions arise.

The dispute between North and South Korea has been going on for a long time now. However, is this really necessary? Shouldn't something be done to finally recover the lost trust and unity between these two nations? Although it seems very unlikely at the current pace it's at, it's still very possible. This is mainly due to the fact of the two new leaders. Mistakes happen in the past, but since change is happening, it is a very good chance to actually attempt at reconcilling instead of worsening the actual state of the country. No one should ever have to follow in the footsteps of someone who caused pain and suffering for many, which is why a possible new start would be a really great advancement at the current mistrust from each side.
