North Korea is at it again.

In the latest apparent propaganda clip to hit the Internet, The four-minute clip,depicts the White House under attack. It was uploaded on YouTube Monday by Uriminzokkiri, a website for North Korean news and propaganda.

The title translates to “Firestorms Will Rain on the Headquarters of War”, reported The Guardian, and the video opens with the whole works of firing artillery, jets, missiles, military parades, etc.

At around the three-minute mark, the video cuts to an image of the White House under crosshairs, followed by an explosion, and ends with a fanfare of North Korean military might, as missiles bombard distant lands.

According to CNN, the voiceover announces that the “capital of war” is within range of North Korea’s atomic bomb.

The video comes out amid rising tensions between Pyongyang and the U.S. Infuriated by the imposition of UN sanctions after its nuclear test last month, North Korea has already threatened America with a pre-emptive nuclear strike, reported Agence France-Presse.

The AFP cautions that experts have said that North Korea is years away from targeting the United States with missiles. However, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel plans on adding missile interceptors to West Coast defenses, reported CNN — presumably, just in case.

For the time being, the Hermit Kingdom has taken to releasing an onslaught of videos aimed at belittling the United States. Through North Korea’s propaganda channel, they have been having a field day with videos that show everything from the “dire” lives of American citizens to the Manhattan skyline in flames — actually an image taken from the popular game video game Call of Duty.
