North Korea Shows ‘US Attack’ in YouTube Space Video

Surreal dream-like sequence appears to hint at 'US attack', but closer analysis suggests the video sequence is consistent with past propaganda.

North Korean YouTube account Uriminzokkiri has released a propaganda video depicting a man dreaming of manned space flight by the North. In the video, We Are the World plays in the background, and a short segment appears to show an American city under attack – a point that has already started to make ripples in Western headlines, with some suggesting that the video specifically depicts a missile strike on a U.S. city.
