For some reason, a bizarre string of North Korean propaganda videos have been circulating the Internet. Last week, a four-minute clip entitled, “Firestorms Will Rain on the Headquarters of War” was published on YouTube by the country’s news and propaganda arm, Uriminzokkiri. The video featured a valiant country retaliating against the U.S. for the Korean War as an announcer stated that the “capital of war” is within range of a North Korean atomic bomb.
The latest video, “A Short, Three-Day War,” features not only North Korea taking 150,000 U.S. hostages, but also depicts its artillery bombardment of South Korea.
According to a translation published by The Telegraph, the video’s narrator maps out the invasion, including taking out U.S. Pacific Command forces with “powerful weapons of mass destruction.”
“The crack stormtroops will occupy Seoul and other cities and take 150,000 US citizens as hostages,” the narrator states.
Unlike the fake North Korean “propaganda” video released earlier this month that depicted the U.S. as a dystopian wasteland, these newly released videos seem to be official productions of North Korea and are starting to take the Internet by fire.
