The latest North Korean propaganda video to be uploaded on their official Uriminzokkiri YouTube Channel shows off some particularly anti-US sentiments. The video titled “A Short, Three Day War” has since been taken off YouTube, but those left on the site can help paint a pretty good picture.
Along with the video, the DPRK has also realeased an image of a troop-landing drill filled with photoshopped images of hover-crafts.
Although clearly fake, the chest-puffing image was released as the North put its rocket units on combat status along with a threat to target US bases. The United States has responded by flying a B-2 stealth bomber “deterrence” mission over South Korea. A US military statement said the mission “Demonstrated the United States’ ability to conduct long-range, precision strikes quickly and at will.”
Unimpressed, North Korea views the drill as a “hideous politically-motivated terrorism of the US and the South Korean puppet forces targeting the dignified social system in the DPRK.”
As the political plot thickens, coverage of North Korean citizens remains an untouched topic. Escape from the country is harder than ever, and the famine persists.
