Rep. Ruppersberger: Kim Jong Un is young, immature leader

The Pentagon announced Monday it will fly nuclear capable B52 bombers over South Korea in joint military exercises. This recent news comes on the heels of the defense department move to bolster America's missile defense system - all to send a clear signal  to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

North Korea appears to be sending some messages of its own today. A new video has been posted to a semi-official government website. The video shows a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol and gun sight that zeroes in the White House. CNN could not verify the authenticity of the video, but it is the second one that depicts  a North Korean attack on U.S. soil.
