North Korea's new "video" with New York City in ruins
With North Korea set to continue nuclear test (per a South Korean report), a new “futuristic” video has be launched from North Korea’s official youtube page.
The YouTube video [you can view below] recently posted by Uriminzokkiri, North Korea’s official website, quickly takes a more sinister turn as the man’s dream continues into the realms of Stalinist fantasy.
Within seconds he is aboard a space shuttle, launched into orbit by the same type of rocket the North successfully launched in December. The shuttle orbits Earth, at one point passing over a jubilant and reunified Korean peninsula, before the focus switches to an unidentified city draped in the Stars and Stripes.
What appear to be missiles rain down on the city, setting fire to high-rise buildings in scenes reminiscent of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York.
South Korean UN envoy says North Korea set to test very soon.
South Korea’s ambassador to the UN said on Tuesday a North Korean nuclear test was imminent, in protest at the condemnation and tougher security council sanctions that followed its rocket launch on 12 December.
Kim Sook said the test, which would be the North’s third, after similar controlled nuclear detonations in 2006 and 2009, looked increasingly likely given the “very busy activities” taking place at the test site.
The UN has warned North Korea a nuclear test would invite “significant action” in response.
With the recent test in North Korea and the continued push for a nuclear weapon should we be worried about a potential attack or is this yet again another “show” put on by North Korea in order to look stronger than they really are. Only time will tell if the tests continue as the South Koreans claim or if they fail to produce anything once again. Regardless it would seem we will be keeping a closer eye on the Korean peninsula as the month continues.
