False Flag Watch: "ISIS" and North Korea lay out Propaganda
Yesterday ISIS warned it would attack Paris wilst North Korea warned America
The video begins with a river of blood pooling and dripping off a wooden table filled with stacks of American money, guns, knives and bullets.
It's ripped from a video game, as betrayed by the name of a video game designer with a U.S. company carved in the wood of the animated table.
The video is titled "A message to the Western Kafir [Disbelievers] from the Supporters of the Caliphate." It's narrated in English and subtitled in Arabic, and was posted on YouTube and other file-sharing sites.
It included Defense Department footage related to strikes on the Islamic State and news footage of ISIS attacks.
"To you western Kafir, you that meant to fight Islam," the narrator warns, "vengeance is coming" against the "new crusaders," and "it will be welcomed by Allah's permission."
The video threatens to "rip your cross," showing video of ISIS members tearing down church crosses in the territory occupied by the Islamic State.
"So we will invade London, Brussels and Berlin, like we did in Paris before," the narrator warns, adding "supporters of the Islamic caliphate state are determined that their [inaudible] will be at the earliest time."

Another ISIS video released after the Brussels attacks features a Belgian jihadist speaking in French from Mosul.
Abu Abdullah al-Beljiki warns "this is just the beginning of your nightmare" while boasting that "after New York and Paris, we give you the new 9/11."
That video features news footage of the Brussels attack along with stock graphics used in previous ISIS videos, including a composite image of a downcast President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden.
It also include four scenes in which a map of Belgium exploded.
North Korean Propaganda Video Depicts Nuclear Strike on Washington
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea released a propaganda video on Saturday that depicts a nuclear strike on Washington, along with a warning to “American imperialists” not to provoke the North.
The four-minute video clip, titled “Last Chance,” uses computer animation to show what looks like an intercontinental ballistic missile flying through the earth’s atmosphere before slamming into Washington, near what appears to be the Lincoln Memorial. A nuclear explosion follows.
“If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike,” read the Korean subtitles in the video, which was uploaded to the YouTube channel of D.P.R.K. Today, a North Korean website. “The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not.”
Such remarks are in line with recent threats and assertions from North Korea about its nuclear and missile capabilities.
The North recently threatened a nuclear strike against Washington in retaliation for new United Nations sanctions, which were imposed this month to punish North Korea for its most recent tests of a nuclear device and a long-range rocket.
The new video mostly chronicles what it calls “humiliating defeats” suffered by the United States at North Korea’s hands over the years, including the North’s capture in 1968 of an American ship, the Pueblo, and the shooting down of an American helicopter in 1994.
It goes on to depict a barrage of artillery, rockets and missiles — including a submarine-launched ballistic missile, which North Korea recently claimed to have successfully tested — and it ends with the American flag in flames.
Hatred for America has long been a prominent theme in North Korean propaganda, and as the North’s nuclear and missile programs have advanced in recent years, a sense of empowerment through those weapons has become another key element of the messaging.
The video released Saturday is not the first of its kind. North Korea released one in 2013 that showed Lower Manhattan being bombed, and another soon afterward that showed President Obama and American troops in flames.
