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.

If US was forced to go to war against N Korea and China joined in on N Koreas side.  Then wouldn't that end all economical ties with China.  Including are debt to them?  China's economy would be over with if that happened and likely a lot of other countries would take the US's side.

Sow distrust, reap distrust. The real problem seems to be that the West has isolated and ill-treated North Korea when Russia and China, at the height of the Cold War, had (and still have) far more nuclear weapons  than present North Korea. US military deaths totalled 37,000 during the Korean War.  Does this still rankles American sensibilities? But America suffered military deaths of 406,000 in Germany-initiated World War 2,  and she has forgiven Germany for that. Why treat North Korea differently?  The US is now appeased with China, North Korea's backer during the Korean War. What has made the US's NK policy  different? Prejudice perhaps.  We had suggested Nixon's conciliatory visit with Mao as a possible blueprint for an Obama cabinet official to try with NK. Will hubris rule the US-NK relations?

I have seen better production values in YouTube videos put out by 13 year olds.

The North Korean military is huge and would spill blood on a level not seen since the armistice, but they have very few friends and China (their only true-blue friend and life support system) would be faced with ending their most lucrative financial relationship or siding up with dictator trying to instigate a totally unnecessary conflict with the United States and her allies.

The video says in Korean.  "North Korea is not the Balkan Peninsula.  Neither are we Iraq or Libya".  A clear reference to the fact that Iraq and Libya, under pressure from the US, did not follow through on their nuclear programs. And the payoff for Iraq and Libya for abandoning their nuclear programs?  A US invasion. 

It appears that the lesson they have drawn from US diplomatic/military policies of the last 20 years is that the US does not attack nuclear powers.
