North Korea video shows US city in flames after missile attack

North Korea video shows US city in flames after missile attack

YouTube video shows city ablaze in scenes reminiscent of 9/11, as South Korea claims nuclear test imminent in Pyongyang

It begins benignly enough, with an image of a sleeping young North Korean man, and a genteel piano version of the US feel-good pop anthem We Are the World providing the musical backdrop.

But the YouTube video recently posted by Uriminzokkiri, North Korea's official website, quickly takes a more sinister turn as the man's dream continues into the realms of Stalinist fantasy.

Within seconds he is aboard a space shuttle, launched into orbit by the same type of rocket the North successfully launched in December. The shuttle orbits Earth, at one point passing over a jubilant and reunified Korean peninsula, before the focus switches to an unidentified city draped in the Stars and Stripes.

What appear to be missiles rain down on the city, setting fire to high-rise buildings in scenes reminiscent of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York.

How the heck did Activision get the video taken down?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKWJSKYBDXE

Did it use footage from a Call of Duty game or something? I first thought about Homefront (game about NK invasion of US) but that was owned by THQ, and unless Activision bought it during THQ's liquidation, they don't have rights to that game.

Is there an alternative address to view the video?

another link to the video

My son says its video from the game Modern Warfare III. Obviously someone screwing around or a really really poor misinformation video from the CIA.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Probably the latter

Between not seeing the video at all and Modern Warfare 2 being my last Call of Duty game, I had no idea what the footage could've been.

Thanks for clearing it up.

North Korea

DPRK or "Democratic" peoples republic of Korea. In other words, those are just catch phrases used to make the people feel like they have representation.

North Korean?

This is probably just the newest rap video from Psy. Oh well, at least we can all keep teaching our dog how to do Gangnam Style.....
