North Korean video shows war – level 2
North Korea prepared a propaganda video that shows an imagined attack on South Korea. It also shows the North Korean army how it destroys US bases in Japan and Guam. The video is four minutes long and it was published on the internet.
North Korea did a nuclear test last month and the United Nations increased the sanctions. In response North Korea started to speak about a possibility of attacking the US. North Korean regime also said that it will not keep the agreement from 1953 that ended the war on the Korean peninsula.
Interesting words: sanction (form of punishment when one country stops doing business with another country), peninsula (land that is almost an island but that is joined to a large area of land).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
