I highly doubt that this is N Korean propaganda. It sounds a lot more like U.S./ New World Order propaganda. What sense would it possibly make for N.Korea to make such a ridiculous claim? Why would a country with ability to decimate the U.S. show their hand? They wouldn't. However, anytime the U.S. New World Order decides it wants to invade and occupy another country they often manufacture threats against the U.S or U.S. interests. Check your history.
This is an interesting story yet it is clearly just propaganda form the North Korean’s, I would imagine it’s just a message to appease the people of North Korea rather than a real threat. However it does seem to show that the new regime is beginning to speak out against America with the rhetoric of war although I personally don’t think it’s time for anyone to start worrying about war just yet.
I do wonder however what these weapons are that the North Korean’s are claiming to have.

North Korea Boasts of Ability to Destroy US Military in 'Single Blow'

I'm not saying its true, but it wouldn't be so far-fetched to believe what they're saying about how the US is plotting a war against North Korea. Its just history repeating itself, again. But I'm sure there are many other factors involved here.
Unready For This Attack
By Jon Kyl Saturday, April 16, 2005; Page A19
Recently a Senate Judiciary subcommittee of which I am chairman held a hearing on a major threat to the American people, one that could come not only from terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda but from rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea. An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on the American homeland, said one of the distinguished scientists who testified at the hearing, is one of only a few ways that the United States could be defeated by its enemies -- terrorist or otherwise.
And it is probably the easiest. A single Scud missile, carrying a single nuclear weapon, detonated at the appropriate altitude, would interact with the Earth's atmosphere, producing an electromagnetic pulse radiating down to the surface at the speed of light. Depending on the location and size of the blast, the effect would be to knock out already stressed power grids and other electrical systems across much or even all of the continental United States, for months if not years.
