North Korea released two anti-American stamps, one featuring warheads aimed at Capitol Hill


North Korea has released two anti-American stamps in honor of its annual “Struggle Against US Imperialism Month,” according to CNN.

The first stamp features a fist punching past North Korea’s flag to crush a missile labeled “USA.”

The second stamp features a cluster of warheads aimed at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The new designs by the Korea Stamp Corporation, North Korea’s stamp-issuing authority, are purportedly the latest additions to its collection containing over 70 separate stamp categories.

Some Twitter users on Monday analyzed the provocative images, which were reportedly released to observe the anniversary of the Korean War.

CNN reported that the Korean Stamp Corporation releases new stamp designs each year, producing a steady income stream for the reclusive Asian nation.

The designs include topics touting “revolutionary history” and “Respected Comrade Kim Jong-Un,” who is North Korea’s supreme leader.

Other categories reportedly celebrate North Korea’s innovations, infrastructure and transportation.

North Korean stamps also feature more outlandish classes including “chess,” “crustaceans” and “mushrooms.”

The styles additionally commemorate national achievements and global affairs, such a stamp this year boasting about the supposed 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army.

CNN additionally reported that this year’s issued stamps continue a long tradition of designs attacking the U.S.

North Korea often released stamps praising anti-American communists during the Vietnam War, for example.

Another stamp released in 1969, meanwhile, showed former President Richard Nixon getting attacked by pens.
