Fine, I'll Ask the Obvious

North Korea has turned the psycho dial to "11":

North Korea has been placed under martial law and Kim Jong-un has told his front-line troops to "be ready for a war," according to South Korean media reports.

Which begs the obvious question: how can you tell it is martial law? What difference does it make at this point, compared to what the usual situation is? To borrow a turn of phrase.

To be fair to the nutballs, this is part of a preparation for a nuclear test, apparently.

It's funny that a leadership that thinks nuclear weapons will protect them indicates that they fear the development of nuclear weapons will trigger an attack on them.
