North Korea's official news agency, Uriminzokkiri, posted its latest propaganda video on YouTube Monday. The clip titled "Firestorms will rain on the Headquarters of War" --via MSN news-- features several shots of missiles and rockets as well as a scene where they literally target the White House through sniper's crosshairs -- at the 2:51 mark -- and another one where the U.S. Capitol Building Explodes -- at the 2:54 mark.
The clip is North Korea's latest installment in a line of similarly-themed propaganda videos.
As Business Insider points out, the videos might be a reaction to the U.N. sanctions imposed on the country after its nuclear test last month. North Korea has even threatened the U.S. with a pre-emptive nuclear strike given the latter's allegiance with South Korea.
