In the latest North Korean propaganda video, the communist dictatorship blows up a US carrier and the White House in a virtual/simulated nuclear strike. Right before the nuke strike, in a move which hardly deescalates the situation, the North Korean propaganda outlet declares that the enemy (US) to be destroyed is in our sights.
Earlier on Thursday, Russia’s president Vladimir Putin warned the world about the rapidly deteriorating situation in the Korean peninsula, asking both sides to avoid the bellicose rhetoric. It is not very clear what determined Mr. Putin to escalate the belligerent rhetoric with regard to North Korea and the US, but the new video-clip released on Thursday comes just a few days after the Pyongyang regime conducted large scale military exercises showing off its military capability of striking Seoul (10 million residents) with artillery and medium range missiles.
The clip released by a North Korean online publication shows photos of an aircraft carrier and the Capitol with a target painted on them, as if they’re in a cross-hair of sorts. Then, there’s a simulated footage of a US aircraft carrier bursting into flames, with a caption underneath reading:
“When the enemy takes the first step toward provocation and invasion.”
The crazy fat kid’s communist regime is well known for its bombastic propaganda and delirious rhetoric, but the recent weeks have seen a significant increase propaganda-wise,as the diplomatic tensions have skyrocketed.
It’s interesting to notice that North Korea seems to have abstained lately from further missile tests, whether successful or failed, not to mention nuke tests, leading us to speculate that China’s recent intervention may have calmed down Kim Jong-un’s erratic behavior.
Meanwhile, US generals say that the crisis in the Korean peninsula is the worst in recent history, and despite the fact that North Korea doesn’t actually have missiles that can strike US mainland, they’re asking for more missile interceptors to be deployed in Hawaii in the eventuality of an attack.
