The four-minute video, set to jaunty music, romps through the history of US-Korean relations and ends with a digitally manipulated sequence showing a missile surging through clouds, swerving back to the earth and slamming into the road in front of Washington’s Lincoln Memorial. Pyongyang has upped the rhetorical ante in recent weeks, with near daily threats of nuclear and conventional strikes against the South and the US mainland in response to large-scale South-US war games. The threats have turned increasingly personal, and North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un on Friday watched a live-fire long-range artillery drill simulating a strike on the official residence of his South Korean counterpart.
Tensions between the two Koreas been on the rise since Pyongyang carried out its fourth nuclear test in January, and a satellite rocket launch a month later that was widely seen as a disguised ballistic missile test. North Korea has been pushing to acquire submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) capability which would take its nuclear strike threat to a new level, allowing deployment far beyond the Korean peninsula and the potential to retaliate in the event of a nuclear attack. The chance of war between India and Pakistan is at its highest point since 1971 and conventional conflict which breaks out could escalate into nuclear war, CIA Director George Tenet warned Tuesday. Tenet, in a review of threat conditions worldwide, expressed concern about instability created by an attack by Pakistan-based militants on India's parliament on December.
He noted that both India and Pakistan have publicly downplayed the risk of a nuclear conflict. The United States mounted a frenzied diplomatic offensive around the turn of the year to head off a potential confrontation between India and Pakistan, which both mobilized hundreds of thousands of troops following the parliament attack.


White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Tuesday after Tenet's remarks that tension had eased significantly between the arch-rivals as a result of that diplomatic initiative.
In addition to the fears of a nuclear conflict in South Asia, the United States was concerned that the tension between India and Pakistan could negatively impact its anti-terror operations in Afghanistan. Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf Thursday told visiting Chinese General Xiong Guangkai he hoped to enhance cooperation between their armed forces, state-run media reported.
