New North Korea Posters Depict Missile Strikes on U.S.

The poster was released on Thursday.

North Korea released new propaganda posters on Thursday that boast about the United States being “within our strike range!” and condemning the United Nations over its recent missile tests.

According to Reuters, the colorful posters and defiant slogans are the latest sign of the tensions building between Washington and Pyongyang over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. Images including military and anti-U.S. messaging have been commonplace in North Korea propaganda.

One new poster shows missiles fired from launchers toward a map of the U.S., which is in flames. The blue-lettered slogan reads: “All of the U.S. mainland is within our strike range!”

Another, according to Reuters, shows a torn American flag with the labels “Military option. Pre-emptive strike. Sanctions resolution.” The same poster also has red missiles coming out from a North Korean flag with the words: “Our answer!”

Reuters reports that the KCNA state news agency did not say why the posters are being released now.

President Donald Trump warned North Korea last week that it would face “fire and fury” if it threatened the U.S. North Korea responded by saying it was considering plans to fire missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

When that decision was delayed, Trump praised Kim Jong Un for making the “wise” decision.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Aug. 5. The sanctions could slash “by a third the Asian state’s $3 billion annual export revenue over its two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.”

Another new poster denounced these sanctions and hailed North Korea’s self-reliance. “No one can stop our way!” it read.
