It’s been a busy few weeks for Korea, they’ve threatened to turn Seoul to ash, imprisoned an American student for the crime of stealing a sign and now, because it’s a day ending in ‘Y’ they’ve threatened a major U.S. city.
In its latest desperate move for attention, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has released yet another propaganda video, this time showing them launching a devastating nuclear attack on Washington D.C., Japan Today reports.
The video dramatically titled, ‘Last Chance’, begins by explaining the extremely poor relationship between the United States dating all the way back to the Korean War, before ending with a terrible CGI missile launching through clouds, swerving back to the Earth and detonating over the Washington’s Lincoln Memorial.
The U.S. Capitol building then explodes, (I think it does anyway, to be honest it’s so poorly animated it’s hard to tell) and a message flashes up on the screen in Korean warning: “If U.S. imperialists budge an inch toward us, we will immediately hit them with nuclear (weapons).”
Reportedly the video first appeared on the country’s propaganda website before inevitably making its way to You Tube.
Honestly North Korea makes these threats so often now it’s hard to take them seriously but according to author Gordon Chang, who has studied the North Korean relations for years, we shouldn’t dismiss these threats as empty.
They do have two launchers that can reach 48 states. Therefore, we’ve got to be concerned because, eventually, if not now, they’ll be able to put nuclear warheads on those missiles and, therefore, threaten America.
I think it’d be easier to take them seriously if they could raise the production value of their terrible videos…

Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
