The latest ridiculous North Korean propaganda video includes threats to launch that nation's (untested) KN-08 missiles at four U.S. cities: Washington, Colorado Springs, Colo., Los Angeles and Honolulu.
The only problem is that the video, released by the state-run media organization Uriminzokkiri, misidentifies Colorado Springs' location by about 1,000 miles. As the voice-over excitedly discusses North Korea's plan to launch a missile at the home of a number of important military installations, as well as the U.S. Air Force Academy, a dot on a map meant to indicate the city actually appears somewhere over the deep south.
You can hear the narrator mention Colorado Springs at about 1 minute, 20 seconds into the video, as a scary-looking line is shown shooting out from North Korea and landing somewhere in the vicinity of Shreveport, La., a 900-mile drive southeast from the intended target.
Fortunately for Coloradans and Louisianans, the KN-08 is untested and so has not demonstrated the ability to reach anywhere near the U.S. mainland, much less with the accuracy required to hit a precise location. All of which may help explain why these particularly propagandist video makers did not even bother to correctly identify their targets.
