North Korea video depicts US attack

North Korea has produced another video showing the US under attack, this time with the White House and the US Capitol literally in the crosshairs.

The four-minute video titled Firestorms will rain on the Headquarters of War, was posted on the YouTube channel of the North’s official website.

The first two minutes used photos of US fighter jets, B-52 bombers and aircraft carriers to portray the US 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.

Angered by UN sanctions imposed after its nuclear test last month, North Korea has threatened the US with a preemptive nuclear strike.

An offering early last month showed New York in flames after an apparent missile attack, and another depicted US soldiers and president Barack Obama burning in the flames of a nuclear blast.
