North Korea threatens Colorado Springs, but has no idea where it is

DENVER — A recent propaganda video released by the North Korean government threatens to strike Colorado Springs with an experimental KN-08 missile, but seems totally unaware of the actual location of the city.

The video lists the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs alongside Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Honolulu as potential targets for the belligerent nation. But the accompanying video actually shows a computerized missile landing near Shreveport, La., some 900 miles away.

Fortunately for Coloradans and Louisianans, the KN-08 is “untested and so has not demonstrated the ability to reach anywhere near the U.S. mainland, much less with the  accuracy required to hit a precise location,” the Washington Post notes.
