In what appears to be a provocative PR stunt, a bizarre video uploaded to YouTube by North Korea over the weekend shows a dream sequence that includes a U.S. city resembling New York under an apparent missile attack.

The video, produced by North Korea's official website, Uriminzokkiri, begins with a young man imagining himself aboard a North Korean space shuttle that circles the earth, pausing to zoom in on a unified Korea.

The soundtrack to the three-and-a-half-minute video is an instrumental version of "We Are the World," the 1985 single written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and recorded by a celebrity supergroup, with proceeds going to African aid.

Near the end of the dream sequence, the imagined U.S. city—including what appears to be the Empire State Building—is shown in flames.

"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," reads a caption, translated by The Guardian. "It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze."

When reached by Yahoo News, U.S. National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor declined to comment.

The video arrives just days after North Korea threatened to retaliate against the U.S. for what it called a double standard stemming from a recent rocket launch by South Korea, which the U.S. said had no military intent.
In December, the U.S. claimed a North Korean rocket launch was a test of banned ballistic missile technology, and the United Nations Security Council announced sanctions.

On Saturday, a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman did not elaborate on the threatened retaliation. But according to the Associated Press, Pyongyang recently threatened to conduct its third nuclear test in response to what it calls U.S. hostility.

On Tuesday, South Korea U.N. Ambassador Kim Sook said a North Korean nuclear test was "imminent."

I've never made a thread in DC before, figured this is the best place to post it. I don't know what to make of it but it is pretty freaky.
Don't know if Q?

Should we be underestimating North Korea as a threat?
I say nuke em out of orbit to be sure.

Not necessary.

The regime in North Korea's first perogative, above all other things, is to survive.

Launching a single missile onto American soil probably means that survival will come to a quick conclusion.

We've got little to fear from them, and really so does everybody except the occasional deadly lashing-out at South Korea.

There has been an astonishing humanitarian crisis going on in that country, however. I have absolutely no idea what can be done about it.

Not afraid of them able to launch missiles this far but they have billions of people like China so who knows what they are capable of?

It was a weird video.

They literally used footage from the video game Modern Warfare 3.

It's a small, backwards shithole.

North Korea is like the fat weird kid in high school that wore star wars gear, and would threaten to use Karate if provoked.

There's not a country on earth that has "billions" of people.

There's like 7 billion people on earth.
