North Korean Soldiers Shoot At 'USA' Targets in Crude Propaganda Video

North Korea has come out with some new anti-American propaganda. This time, it's a video showing their soldiers firing at targets of soldiers labeled "USA." According to CNN, it is "rare" for North Korea to fire at simulated American targets.

The South Koreans are reportedly taking the new threats from the north very seriously. They've even lowered the militaries barriers to respond to a North Korean attack. But, CNN reports that the U.S. "remains unconcerned about what North Korea says, it cares about what North Korea does."

And, according to Pentagon Press Secretary George Littl, the North Koreans aren't making any "troop movements on the North Korean side that would indicate imminent military action."

Despite the CNN reporter's fawning, none of it ought to scare any modern nation.

A couple of soldiers shooting at a paper cut-out tied to a stick in an empty field aren't intimidating. Neither is a group of archers. I mean, seriously, archers?

And what's with the train that looks like it's from 1950s Soviet Russia running over a piece of paper with a poorly drawn caricature? Who thought that would scare anybody?

Honestly, the North Koreans should just stick to ripping off scenes from Call of Duty for their anti-American propaganda.
