North Korea Shows Barack Obama In Flames (VIDEO)

Weeks after a North Korean video showed an American city razed and ablaze, the hermit kingdom has reportedly released another inflammatory piece of propaganda.

A new video apparently published Sunday shows American soldiers and U.S. President Barack Obama engulfed in flames, with the sequence ending in a simulated nuclear test. According to GlobalPost, the inspirational soundtrack accompanying the footage comes from the Elder Scrolls Oblivion video game series.

"North Korea has succeeded in proceeding with this nuclear test despite the United States’ increasingly unfair bully activities against North Korea," part of the videos captions read, according to North Korea news. The captions also go on to say that The U.S. has no respect for others, nor appreciation for equality.

"The people are watching. America should answer," the video concludes.

The YouTube channel of Uriminzokkiri, a website distributing news and propaganda by North Korea's state-run media, is hosting the latest propaganda video. The site also published a similar video earlier in February that showed an American city in flames following an apparent missile attack.

The international community has recently increased pressure on Pyongyang in response to its December rocket launch and its latest nuclear test in February.

North Korean seems undeterred, however, and North Korean diplomats upped their rhetoric on Tuesday by threatening neighbor South Korea with "final destruction" during a meeting on disarmament at the United Nations. "As the saying goes, a new-born puppy knows no fear of a tiger. South Korea's erratic behavior would only herald its final destruction," North Korean diplomat Jon Yong Ryong said at the meeting, according to Reuters.
