It seems like just yesterday the world was prepping for a South Korea v. Better Korea showdown, but Great Leader Kim Jong-un found mercy in his heart and came to a truce with South Korea, averting a global conflict. This week, in a display of gratitude towards Great Leader Kim Jong-un for saving the world from needless bloodshed the United States and South Korea joined in a MASSIVE LIVE FIRE JOINT MILITARY EXERCISE just outside of the Korean de-militarized zone, and the footage of this joint exercise is straight out of a Michael Bay film, only this is real, which makes it about 1,000,000,000,000 times more badass. The ONLY thing missing from this video is that it’s not set to Wilhelm Richard Wagner’s ‘Flight of the Valkyries’.

WARNING: Watching this footage may cause extreme freedom boners. If your freedom boner lasts for longer that 1776 hours you should go dump some tea in the harbor, as this act of defiance may cause your freedom boner to continue for another 1776 hours.

CNN reports on this glorious joint live fire exercise:

Pocheon, South Korea (CNN)On the side of a hill in Pocheon, about 18 miles (30 kilometers) from the Demilitarized Zone that separates North and South Korea, targets are laid out.
They’re huge painted numbers and drawings of tanks bearing the North Korean star emblem.
Through a megaphone, a soldier announces what target to watch. A South Korean F-16 fighter jet screams over shortly after, dropping a bomb right on the spot.
Next up we’re treated to the impressive sight of an E-737 “Peace Eye,” a state-of-the-art surveillance aircraft that can detect movement across most of North Korea’s airspace from behind the South Korean border.
It happened to coincide with the annual military exercise known as “Ulchi Freedom Guardian,” a series of mainly computer-simulated drills involving an estimated 80,000 troops. Its aim is to simulate the defense of South Korea from an attack by the North.
This drill happens every three to five years, with around 3,000 South Korean and American military personnel.
Most joint exercises between the two allies draw an angry response from Pyongyang, who tend to view these events as a provocation and prelude to war.
“I felt really nervous and anxious living in this area,” said Pocheon resident, Song Choon-soon. “But after watching the performances I don’t feel anxious at all. North Korea can’t defeat us.”
People here are used to the regular threats from the North. But the South Korean and U.S. militaries took the recent hostilities seriously.

And now for the glorious GIFs with explosions straight out of Hollywood:
