North Korean Nuclear Threat Mistakes Louisiana for Colorado Springs (VIDEO)


Amid the simmering pot of tensions on the Korean peninsula, Kim Jong-Un and co. releeasd a propaganda video Friday that shows four U.S. cities in the crosshairs of North Korean nuclear missiles that have yet to be tested. In the process of trying to drum up nationalism/fear, North Korea has, according to the Washington Post, committed a first: mistaking Colorado Springs for Louisiana.

 

The second target identified by the video's words is Colorado Springs, Colo., but  the location on the map is off by about 1,000 miles. The actual depicted target is somewhere in the vicinity of Shreveport, says WaPo.

 

The other targets listed in the video are Washington, D.C., Honolulu and Los Angeles.

 

The missiles that would theoretically be used for such an attack are known as the KN-08. According to GlobalSecurity.org, the missiles have yet to be tested in the air, proven to be able to hit the U.S., or even to be able to hit a specific target.

 

Here's the propaganda video:
