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...
