Video: North Korea clip threatening to nuke Colorado Springs puts city closer to Texas

Last week's Off Limits column noted that North Korea's threats of nuking the United States initially omitted Colorado from its target list. Now, however, a video on Uriminzokkiri, a North Korea government Web site, puts Colorado Springs in the cross-hairs -- sort of. As 7News notes, the clip mentions the Springs, but the location is shown as somewhere around east Texas or west Louisiana. Close, but no exploding nuclear cigar.

Experience the terror/hilarity below. The key section is around the one minute, twenty second mark.
