Tensions hit fever pitch on Korean peninsula

On Friday, North Korean state media reported that Kim Jong-un had ordered missile units to be ready to strike the United States and South Korea. This comes just a day after two American stealth bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula in a military exercise. Bruce Cumings, author of The Korean War: A History, and professor at the University of Chicago, tells Worldview whether he thinks North Korea poses a real security threat. (Photo: AP Images).
