Continuing its pattern of confrontational rhetoric, North Korea has reportedly produced a propaganda video showing the U.S. under attack and the White House in the crosshairs.
The video, titled "Firestorms will rain on the Headquarters of War," was posted Monday on the YouTube channel for North Korea's official website, Uriminzokkiri, an arm of the government that disseminates news and propaganda from state media, AFP reports.
The first two minutes used still photos of US fighter jets, B-52 bombers and aircraft carriers to portray the United States as a bullying nuclear power intent on bending Pyongyang to its will.
"Second by second, the fuse of a nuclear war is burning," a female narrator warned.
It then showed a sniper's crosshairs superimposed over the White House, before switching to animated footage of the dome of the US Capitol building exploding in a fireball.
"There is no limit to the range of our strategic rockets," the narrator said.

This type of agitation is not unusual for North Korea. In fact, the country actually threatened the U.S. with a pre-emptive nuclear strike following strict UN sanctions imposed after its nuclear test last month.
The United States responded by announcing plans to boost West Coast missile defenses.
