A new North Korea propaganda video has been released.
The 4-minute video posted on YouTube on Monday shows images of North Korean missiles, soldiers and warplanes before cutting to footage of the U.S. Capitol in the crosshairs and then being engulfed in flames, NBC News reports.
According to South Korea’s Yonhap News, the subtitle on the image reads: "The White House is caught in the panoramic sight of a [North Korean] long-range missile. This hotbed of war is in the scope of a nuclear bomb blow."
This isn’t the first propaganda video from the nuclear-armed communist state.
On Feb. 19, North Korea published a video showing President Obama and U.S. troops in flames.
“It is not incorrect to say that the United States’ gangster-like policy of hostility prompted us to become a most strong military power,” one of the subtitles reads, according to the New York Times. “Thus it can be said that it was ‘thanks to’ the Americans that we conducted a nuclear test.”
The United States plans to intensify its anti-missile program against North Korea, CNN reports. The announcement comes after North Korea threatened nuclear attack on South Korea, which would go against the armistice agreement between the two countries in 1953, the news outlet reports.
As for an attack on the United States, President Obama said it’s unlikely, but he doesn’t want to take any chances.
"They probably can't, but we don't like the margin of error," Obama said in an interview with ABC News.
