North Korea’s enmity with the United States is at its worst. So what does the Hermit kingdom do? It launches yet another propaganda video targeting the U.S.
The despotic supreme ruler Kim Jong-un has released a military propaganda video showcasing North Korean troops bombing a U.S. aircraft career to highlight Pyongyang’s determination to counter the ongoing Seoul-Washington military drills.
In the 170-second footage, a U.S. supercarrier, which looks like the nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson going down in flames.
In the background is featured the B-1B Lancer strategic bomber which is similarly in flames.
Clippings from the Hermit kingdom’s recent ballistic missile tests are shown alongside the haunting images and the video declares, “A knife will be stabbed into the throat of the carrier. The bomber will fall from the sky after getting hit by a hail of fire.”
Uriminzokkiri TV explained North Korea is viewing the military drill between South Korea and the United States as a declaration of war and an attempt to invade the isolated kingdom.
This isn’t the first time the tyrannical Kim has launched a crazed video like this.
In 2013, Pyongyang released a similar video which featured a nuclear attack on the White House.
The video comes after Kim warned President Donald Trump of nuking America if “even a single bullet” is fired towards the Hermit Kingdom.
"The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the US and the South Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK,” the statement read.
North Korea has launched 4 missiles at the beginning of this month and the supreme leader has called the test “a new birth” of the country’s rocket industry.
Trump told reporters he had meetings with Kim during his weekend at his Mar-a-Lago club. Although he did not give out details, he did say Kim was “acting very, very badly.”
