President Obama is surrounded by flames in a new North Korean propaganda video. The president and US soldiers are featured in the film, which reportedly promotes North Korea’s nuclear program.
This is the second disturbing film released by North Korea’s Uriminzokkiri network, which is a North Korean government website. The first video, which has been removed due to copyright infringement, featured similar imagery.
The first video, titled “On Board Unha-9,” featured a dream sequence. The short film depicted a man dreaming about a rocket. Throughout the film, the rocket progressed across the North Atlantic Ocean and eventually exploded somewhere in Manhattan. Cartoon-like graphics depicted Manhattan engulfed in flames. As reported by the New York Times, an instrumental version of “We Are the World” was playing throughout the short film.
The new North Korean propaganda video depicts President Obama and various US soldiers engulfed in flames. The film concludes with images that reportedly depict North Korea’s recent nuclear test.
As reported by NK News, the new film features messages, which are displayed over the disturbing images. The content of the messages is reportedly anti-American and touts North Korea’s nuclear program, particularly the recent nuclear test.
As translated by NK News, the narrative includes:
“North Korea has succeeded in proceeding with this nuclear test despite the United States’ increasingly unfair bully activities against North Korea.”
“As a result, North Korea’s high level nuclear test conducted against American imperialist invaders is a nuclear deterrent that protects our sovereignty.”
“It is also a solemn warning that time is no longer on the side of the United States. The people are watching. America should answer.”
North Korea reportedly successfully carried out testing of a nuclear device on February 12. The test was a direct violation of a UN Security Council order. As reported bypolitico.com, President Obama called the test a “highly provocative act.”
