Amid a war of words on the Korean peninsula, a North Korean video depicts war against forces including the United States. This propaganda video was posted on a semi-official website, showing strikes on Washington. Subtitles say the Capitol building is within "range of an atomic bomb". While analysts say the North doesn't have the capability to hit the U.S., fierce rhetoric has escalated in recent weeks. At the demilitarised zone that divides the North and South, soldiers kept a close watch on Tuesday (March 19). South Korea is currently conducting an annual military drill with the United States to strengthen their alliance. North Korea says it's a rehearsal for war and has threatened to scrap the armistice that ended hostilities in the 1950s.
