In a new video released by the government of North Korea titled “Last Chance,” Pyongyang shows a submarine-launched nuclear missile destroying Washington.
The 4-minute video was published on North Korea’s propaganda website DPRK Today. In it, a history of American-Korean relations is presented with musical accompaniment. It ends with a CGI sequence of a missile striking near Washington’s Lincoln Memorial.
Pyongyang has upped the rhetorical ante in recent weeks, with near daily threats of nuclear and conventional strikes against the South and the US mainland in response to large-scale South-US war games. The threats have turned increasingly personal, and North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un on Friday watched a live-fire long-range artillery drill simulating a strike on the official residence of his South Korean counterpart.
The video ends with an American flag burning. Watch it above.
