Tone-deaf dictatorships

RCW helpfully compiles the three ways Iran has embarrassed itself recently, most notably by revealing a laughable fiberglass model of a supposed stealth fighter.

North Korea's propaganda doesn't pass the laugh test either. The regime recently uploaded the above video to its official website (my emphasis):

The video is shot as a dream sequence, with a young man seeing himself on board a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully tested in December. As the shuttle circles the globe - to the tune of We Are the World - the video zooms in on countries below, including a reunified Korea.

The focus then switches to a city - shrouded in the US flag - under apparent missile attack, with its skyscrapers either on fire or in ruins.
