North Korea displays video of part of U.S. engulfed in flames

North Korea seemingly sent a message to the United States by displaying parts of the country in flames during a military celebration.

North Korea has recognized the “Day of the Sun” over the weekend in honor of late founding father Kim Il Sung’s 105th birthday.

Part of the festivities was a lengthy military concert that featured a video of North Korean missiles striking what appears to be San Francisco.

Recordings of the concert, which emerged on Wednesday, show a brass band and choir in military uniforms as an audience filled with soldiers claps. North Korean dictator Kim Jong un is seen waving to the crowd during the festivities.

Following the missile’s impact in the video, flames are seen overlaid on an American flag and a field of white crucifixes — seemingly mimicking a military cemetery.

Video of the hour-plus concert comes days after the secluded country displayed its weapons arsenal at a parade honoring Kim Il Sung.

Tensions have been high between the U.S. and North Korea as it continues to test rockets that could carry nuclear weapons.

On Saturday, North Korea tried to test a missile, but botched the launch.

U.S. defense officials indicated earlier this week that the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier was headed toward the Korean peninsula — even though the claim was later refuted.
