They are jumping up and down and making a lot of noise over in North Korea, but it’s a new propaganda video that has our attention.
In retaliation for new sanctions by the United Nations Security Council for its December rocket launch, North Korea has threatened a nuclear test launch with the ultimate goal of striking the United States.
A propaganda video for the future launch was posted by North Korea’s state-run news organization on YouTube Tuesday.
According to the U.K.’s Telegraph, “The video is shot as a dream sequence, with a young man seeing himself on board a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully tested in December.”
With the song, “We Are the World,” playing in the background, the odd little video used images from the video game, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.”
While the young man snoozes, happy, smiling, “unified” Koreans are seen celebrating.
Then the little rocket ship comes to a burning and bombed-out New York City with a U.S. flag draped over it.
The Telegraph reported that the words on the screen say:
Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing. It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself. Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us… never will anyone be able to stop the people marching toward a final victory.”
“The video ends with the young man concluding that his dream will ‘surely come true’,” he article said. I think dreams of food and electricity are more likely in North Korea.
I would like to know, though, what the United Nations and the United States will do if North Korea continues these defiant launches. Clearly, it doesn’t care about harsher sanctions.
