<p><b>Why:</b> North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned Friday that his rocket forces were ready "to settle accounts with the U.S.," unleashing a new round of bellicose rhetoric after U.S. nuclear-capable B-2 bombers dropped dummy munitions in joint military drills with South Korea. Kim's warning, and the litany of threats that have preceded it, don't indicate an imminent war. In fact, they're most likely meant to coerce South Korea into softening its policies, win direct talks and aid from Washington, and strengthen the young leader's credentials and image at home.[ <a href="http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57576953/north-korea-puts-rockets-on-standby-to-settle-accounts-with-u.s-amid-fears-isolated-regime-may-lash-out/" target="_blank"> CBS News </a>] <br>
