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.

Menendez's office says it has reimbursed a political donor more than $58,000 dollars for two trips to the Dominican Republic back in August and September of 2010.
But the reimbursement came two months after an ethics complaint was filed against him and two years after the trips took place. The senator's office is calling the late reimbursement an "oversight".
But it's those trips to the Dominican Republican that sparked allegations that Menendez was meeting up with prostitutes.
