N Korean video imagines attack on Washington

North Korea has produced a new propaganda video portraying a simulated attack on the White House and the US Capitol Building in Washington DC. The four-minute video, entitled "Firestorms will rain on the Headquarters of War", was posted Monday on the YouTube channel of the North Korea’s semi-official central news agency Uriminzokkiri. A series of shots depicting North Korean soldiers, artillery fire, and military hardware culminate in an image of crosshairs zooming in on the White House. The scene quickly cuts over to images of computer rendered explosions bursting around the dome of the US Capitol building. "There is no limit to the range of our strategic rockets," the narrator warns. This is not the first time a North Korean Propaganda video has depicted a military strike on the United States. In February, Uriminzokkiri circulated an internet video showing a skyline resembling New York, up in flames.
Provocations and aggressive rhetoric by the DPRK (North Korea) are unhelpful and undermine international efforts to ensure peace and stability in Northeast Asia.
