North Korea published a four-minute propaganda video on YouTube titled “Last Chance,” warning Americans against provoking the country and showing a nuclear strike against Washington near the Lincoln Memorial.

North Korea has been especially aggressive in its threats to attack the United States lately. U.S. officials recently told CNN that the country now “probably” has miniaturized nuclear warheads that could be used on intercontinental ballistic missiles aiming to hit American soil.

The boisterous posture comes amidst an ongoing back-and-forth between the countries. After North Korea’s recent tests of new nuclear weapons and rockets, the United Nations imposed new sanctions against the isolated country.

“If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike,” the video’s subtitles read. “The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not.”

North Korea’s YouTube channel has been especially active of late, showing off propaganda videos of factories, supermarkets, and power plants to the world.
