Pro-North media shows video of virtual U.S. fighter jet shot down
A pro-North Korea website posted a video clip Sunday showing a U.S. fighter jet getting shot down by Pyongyang's ground-to-air missile in a virtual situation.
North Korea's main propaganda website, Uriminzokkiri, unveiled the 2 minute, 14 seconds-long video clip on its user-created content (UCC) message board. The fake reality video, uploaded with the Korean title "Listen carefully to our warning," showed a U.S. fighter being brought down by North Korea's ground-to-air missile after the aircraft entered the North's crosshairs.
After the fighter jet was shot down, the film also showed the aircraft on fire, as well as the U.S. flag, in a black-and-white picture.
The video included Korean subtitles, saying it is easier to destroy a U.S. Air Force jet than a fly on the wall. It also wrote that the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean will turn red with U.S.' and its allies' "dirty blood" if they don't listen carefully to North Korea's warning.
There has been an exchange of words between the U.S. and North Korea in recent days.
Assistant U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Russel said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could face death if he attempts to use nuclear weapons, while Pyongyang fought back by saying the U.S. will have to pay a "high price" for hurting the dignity of its supreme leadership.
