North Korea uses Modern Warfare 3 footage to depict attack on New York

Rogue nuclear state in "acting like complete nutters" shock

If you're in any doubt as to the fundamental and enduring insanity of North Korea, consider that state-owned media agency Uriminzokkiri has just released a propaganda video of New York in flames - as brought to life by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," reads the caption on the propaganda video (via Kotaku and LiveLeak). "It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself." I suppose that could be calculated irony there - America has gotten very, very good at depicting its own destruction.


"Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us... Never will anyone be able to stop the people marching toward a final victory," continues the caption, which was presumably written by somebody who has yet to play Homefront.

Just so you know, the music in the background is the work of famed North Korean celebrity musicians Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson.
