The Democratic [sic] People’s Republic [sic] of Korea (DPRK), better and more correctly known as North Korea, is saber-rattling again.
Reacting to reports that the Trump administration is considering sweeping sanctions as part of a broad review of measures to counter North Korea’s nuclear and missile threat, Choe Myong Nam, deputy ambassador at the North Korean mission to the UN in Geneva, said North Korea has nothing to fear and will pursue “acceleration” of its nuclear and missile programs, to include developing a “pre-emptive first strike capability” and an inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM).
At the same time, Pyongyang released this unintentionally funny propaganda video, narrated by an increasingly hysterical female, showing the mighty DPRK military “blowing up” a U.S. aircraft carrier and a bomber.
The North Korean government gets away with this video because its people know of neither Photoshop nor CGI — nor do the video makers. The country is nicknamed the Hermit Kingdom for a reason.
Some funny comments from readers of Break:
“Can’t even properly edit a f*cking video and I’m supposed to believe these clowns are a threat to anybody?”
“great CGI. When does this movie come out?”
“This is a country that literally doesn’t allow their citizens to have computers so they can’t see the outside world. They did another propaganda video years ago showing americans eating snow because they were starving. the CGI is top notch on this video. I saw better 20 years ago while watching Xena princess warrior.”
