"...This is an intolerable provocation against the DPRK and an undisguised declaration of a war against it."

The nuance here has me somewhat confused:
1) NK launches an unprovoked attack on a SK naval vessel with loss of many (SK)lives.
2) NK announces that SK has declared war on NK.

Now that NK says that a state of war exists, is SK free to retaliate in any way it sees fit?
I'm speaking of the legal position, not the realpolitik.

There's a moral here...
(No, "Does a bear sh*t in the woods?" was not what I had in mind!)
