North Korea Looking Stupid –again

It surprises me that, with all the importance they place on ”saving face”, the North Koreans don’t mind looking so silly sometimes.

Last week they published a video that threatens to launch their KN-08 missiles at four U.S. cities: Washington, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles and Honolulu.

The only problem is that although they threaten to hit Colorado Springs -they don’t know where it is.
The video,
released by a state-run media organization, 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 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.

Live Long and Prosper...
