North Korea Propaganda Video


Reagan White, Staff Writer

On Thursday, April 27, a North Korean propaganda outlet put out a video that shows a simulation of an attack on the White House. Although this video shows what would be a disastrous attack on the United States, not many people can say they are surprised that North Korea would release it. The video comes after President Trump deployed the USS Michigan, which is one of the largest tomahawk-carrying submarines that the U.S. Navy owns, near North Korea. Other aircraft carriers are scheduled to arrive in the Korean Peninsula this weekend. The video released also declared that “the enemy to be destroyed is in our sights,” according to The Washington Post. The video was two and a half minutes long, and it contained footage of a large military parade that was held on April 15. The Washington Post also states that the video’s caption says, “We will show you what a strong country that leads the world in nuclear and missile technology is capable of.” The Trump Administration says that they are ready for any serious missile or bombing threats against the U.S.  North Korea has a reputation for showing propaganda videos, and this video is likely not a serious threat.
