That would be today’s headline if North Korea’s fat little dictator had his way, but unfortunately, he is having to settle for a Propaganda Video that was put together for his grandfather’s birthday by Kim’s lackeys. The show, which was put on to mark the birthday of founding father Kim Il Sung, ends with a mock-up video of missiles engulfing the United States in flames, prompting cheers from the audience and smiles from current leader Kim Jong Un. It is unknown, who furnished the missile footage, since North Korea can’t seem to get one off the ground.
The showing was accompanied footage of a choral performance attended by Kim Jong Un, the founder’s grandson, on Sunday the day after a huge military parade in Pyongyang and the most recent failure of North Korea to launch a ballistic missile. Following the singing the movie went directly to footage of its test-firing of a short range missile in February which was joined by other missiles shooting into sky. But unlike real life, these all passed over the Pacific and exploded in giant balls of flames in the United States. Something we are sure Kim has wet dreams over.
The Science Fiction thriller, ends with a picture of the American flag in flames, superimposed over row after row of white crosses in a cemetery. A spokesperson for the state run North Korean propaganda, oops I mean News Agency said: “When the performance was over, all the performers and participants in the military parade broke into enthusiastic cheers of ‘hurrah!”
The production was of course followed by State TV footage which showed their Beloved leader, Kim Jung-Un, smiling and waving in return. “The Dear Supreme Leader waved back to them and congratulated the artistes on their successful performance,” KCNA said. In February the communist government issued a statement that it had successfully tested a new type of medium- to long-range ballistic missile, the Pukguksong-2, propelled by a solid-fuel engine. But there is some despute as to the validity of that claim.
In Saturday’s massive military parade it displayed what appeared to be new intercontinental ballistic missiles. But again on Sunday, they achieved the same results at launch time, as the new test ended with the missile exploding into a massive fireball just five seconds after launch. Regardless that attempt still drew international condemnation as a violation of U.N. sanctions.
While North Korea regularly threatens to destroy the United States, patience is wearing thin with their continual provocations. On Wednesday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, on a trip to Asia, repeatedly warned that the “era of strategic patience” with North Korea is over and warned the pint-sized dictator that the U.S. “would meet any attack with an overwhelming response”.
