During a music performance in honor of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, a new video was featured simulating a missile attack that engulfs a U.S. city.
In the video, which is played alongside a full orchestra, multiple missiles fly over the Pacific and engulf the United States in flames. The video ends with the American flag being burned, superimposed over a cemetery of crosses.
“When the performance was over, all the performers and participants in the military parade broke into enthusiastic cheers of ‘hurrah!’ ” the state-run KCNA news agency reported.
The choral performance was played a day after a huge military parade in Pyongyang, marking the 105th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung.
This is not the first time North Korea has created a video that simulates the destruction of the United States. A video last year depicted Washington D.C. being destroyed by a nuclear strike.
Vice President Mike Pence said the U.S. and its allies would meet a potential North Korean attack with an “overwhelming response.”
“Those who would challenge our resolve or readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response,” Pence said aboard the USS Ronald Reagan at the Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan Wednesday.
